|Dark Iron dwarves|
The Dark Iron dwarves, also spelled as dark iron dwarves and known as dark dwarves are a sub-race of dwarves at par with hill, mountain and frost dwarves. Though the majority of them are members of the Dark Iron clan, many are also members of independent organizations such as the Twilight's Hammer, Thorium Brotherhood, Venture Company, and Mountain-Lord Rendan's followers.
In World of Warcraft, Dark Iron dwarves have darkish gray or black skin, with red glowing eyes. As of Battle for Azeroth, their hair glows slightly and embers flake off the ends.
They are fire-resistant.
Dark Iron dwarves are known for being manipulative, underhanded, greedy, cruel, and despotic but Franclorn Forgewright states that they were not always that way and that these evil traits may have been caused by the influence of Ragnaros. This may be true as certain individuals such as General Angerforge, Franclorn Forgewright, and the Thorium Brotherhood have shown themselves to be stalwart, valorous, and even honorable; despite their history of strife with the other dwarven clans and even among themselves. Predominantly, Dark Iron dwarves are known for their fiery tempers and fierce determination.
Dark Iron politics is both treacherous and brutal. There is only one punishment for crimes committed against the Dark Iron dwarves: death. Ancient tradition calls for the guilty to pay the blood price in the Ring of the Law by battling savage creatures gathered from across Azeroth. To date, it is unknown if anyone has ever survived this brutal crucible. Dark Iron dwarves are also known for their craftsmanship, their sorcery, and their sturdy architecture.
Dark Irons have a habit of bringing their own food and drink with them when traveling. This developed from the fact that among their clan, poisoning is not uncommon. A host should not take offense, as it's not meant to be a slight against them.
