Vestri, the Dwarf Mother.


















I was introduced to Vestri, a female dwarf.  We talked for a long time about family relationships.  She tells me that only about one out of every four dwarves are female.  Many male dwarves do not choose to marry but instead dedicate themselves to their craft or profession.  Many female dwarves sport facial hair, but usually much shorter than their male counterparts.  It’s not uncommon for babies to sport a short beard at birth.
