List of deep dwarves
Deep dwarves are a strange people who live deep in the cold earth, worshiping gods of death and practicing Necromancy. They do not heal naturally, but are well-armed with dwarven gear and their deep dwarf damage shaving provides surprising resilience to all forms of harm. For some reason, they are most often found in the Abyss, though you may also encounter them in various death- and necromancy-themed branches and vaults.
