Boreal dwarves (or Enutanik) are a sub-race of dwarves in Pillars of Eternity and Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire.

Origin and prevalence[edit | edit source]

Enutanik (eh-NOO-tah-nik, “people of the tundra” in Enutanik), commonly known as Boreal dwarves, are originally from a southern Boreal region. Most boreal dwarves live in the remote southern island of Naasitaq, where they share the rocky tundra and snow-covered forests with migratory pale elves who drift near the shoreline and the coast-hugging ships of aumaua.

Boreal dwarves are extremely rare in Aedyr, more common in the Vailian Republics, and seldom encountered in the Dyrwood or Readceras.[1][2]

Appearance and culture[edit | edit source]

Like their northern cousins, Enutanik share an instinctive drive to explore and cover long distances in spite of their small stature.

From the Pillars of Eternity Guidebook: Volume One:

  • Features: Moderately wide, flat noses. Broad, flat, round faces. Almond, downturned, or thin eyes with epicanthic folds. Shallow-set eyes, not-prominent brows.
  • Skin: Tan to dark tan, tough and leathery, often creased even among the young
  • Hair: Auburn, brown, black, gray. Straight, thin
  • Eyes: Hazel, brown, gold, copper, deep violet, black.

In-game description[edit | edit source]
