Dwarves originate from another land or world that they fled from for an unknown reason.
Some Korsic barbarians (humans) came with them or followed them.
Dwarves are famous for large scale engineering and mechanisms. They utilize a form of clockwork/gearing that has not been replicated to this day. They build such things as hydro dams or volcanic heat sinks to turn the enormous gears and run self opening gates, elevators, pump air etc.
