One of the original clans of Kal-Thax, the Theiwar are a clan known for its treachery and underhanded dealings. The first known Theiwar thane is Crouch Redfire who was slain by Glome the Assassin. Redfire's successor was Twist Cutshank, who led the Theiwar at the time of the Hylar arrival. Twist Cutshank conspired against the Daewar and attempted to have them destroyed by the Cobar during a raid. Olim Goldbuckle, thane of the Daewar, challenged Twist Cutshank to duel in which Olim easily defeated Cutshank. His co-conspirator Glome then succeeded Cutshank.
Habitat and Society
The Theiwar dwarves are one of the races of dark dwarves. Known for the conniving and scheming they are often plotting to overthrow the Hylar and rule Thorbardin themselves. Theiwar are always looking for ways to further their own self-interests. Living in their dark dwellings Theiwar form communities that are often unlighted. A Theiwar is easily distinguishable from other dwarves because of their paler complexions and larger eyes. The Theiwar are also a clan of dwarves who have come to use magic. While most dwarves mistrust or hate magic, the Theiwar have embraced the art.
The Daergar are the only dwarven race that socializes with the Theiwar. Theiwar hate all other races, particularly Humans and Elves. Though they can eat all types of food, Theiwar prefer to eat meat raw or cooked. Warrior Theiwar are rumored to eat humans during drunken festivals.
