Little is known about this species of demon. In fact, only a few types of dvergar are known to exist, witnessed only by the most dedicated of adventurers. These dwarf-like demons rest upon a grotesque metallic pedestal hovering above the ground, and hold sway over a number of possessed corpselights
with which they assault their target. Dvergar are malicious creatures, capable of inflicting curse
upon entire parties of attackers, among other deadly enfeebling maneuvers.

Dvergar is the plural form of the old Norse word Dvergr, meaning "dwarf." The words Dvergr (dwarf) and Svartalfr (black elf) are used interchangeably by Snorri Sturlusson in the Prose Edda, and the creature's appearence was much different than the current myth. Dvergar were human-sized, with black hair and a livid complexion, resembling that of a corpse. Dvergar feared sunlight and lived in caves as a result.
Skilled craftsmen, Dwarves made many items, among which:
- The spear of Odin, Gungnir.
- The hammer of Thor, Mjollnir.
- The necklace of Freya, Brisingamen.
- Gleipnir, the chain that bound Fenrir.
