Dwarves

There are many Clan’s among the dwarves, and this is often confusing for non dwarves

all dwarves are born or married to one of seven Clan’s, often refereed to as the seven fathers these Clans are

Morgrain
Aule
Telchar
Nogrod
Kuzdull
Durin
Belegost

within each of these clan’s a Patron, Matron or King has the right to designate a chief or hero, giving them right to claim land and begin a new sub clan, these are often used as sir names for dwarves and identifies them within a geographical region, where as their true Clan speaks of all dwarves, everywhere on Argyle, and speaks to a higher loyalties. examples of sub clans could be

Armorpriest
Ironcoat
Giantkin
Dragonkeeper

and so on

due to the knowlege that all dwarves descended from one of these seven clans, and that the original seven clansmen were brothers crafted by Great Rorx himself, the Treaty of Delcor was able to be crafted, an ancient creed that creates unity in the worst of times
