The dark dwarves (commonly referred to as Dark Iron dwarves) are a sub-race of dwarves at par with hill, mountain and frost dwarves.[1] Though the majority of them are members of the Dark Iron clan, many are also members of independent organizations such as the Thorium Brotherhood.

From the dark dwarves of the Dark Iron clan came the cursed skardyn.[2]

Clans / organizations

This article or section includes speculation, observations or opinions possibly supported by lore or by Blizzard officials. It should not be taken as representing official lore.

With the presence of two other clans of dwarves with Dark Iron appearance, it is possible that the term Dark Iron refers to both an ethnic group of dwarves (such as hill or mountain dwarf) and the Dark Iron clan itself (which apparently lords over the other two lesser clans). Another possibility is that there is not a single Dark Iron clan, and instead several smaller clans are ruled over by a single Dark Iron Emperor who as such is lord over a confederacy of clans.
