The Kayolin Dwarves are actually a grouping of two clans of dwarves who live in the Garnet Mountains. These two clans are the Hylar and Daewar who settled here as a mining outpost for Thorbardin. For the first portion of the colony's history it was controlled by Thorbardin who dictated the actions of Kayolin. Even after these dwarves received their independence the Kayolin retained close ties to Thorbardin.
Following the Cataclysm the dwarves of Kayolin were forced to develop a high degree of self-sufficiency. Even though they remained social and cooperative with the nations outside of their borders. Their history has been marked with open communication with the Knights of Solamnia and trade has flourished with them. With the destruction of Thoradin the dwarves were only to willing to serve those who were displaced by the loss of Thoradin.
Habitat and Society
The Kayolin dwarves are not too much different then their cousins in Thorbardin when it comes to nature and appearance. They are a mixture of the two clans that originally settled there and have been able to live peacefully throughout their history.
