Don’t let those big innocent eyes fool you. The Nibelung are much tougher than they look. Yeah I know the guy in the picture looks pretty scary, but he isn’t of the Nibelung. Nope sorry, it was the best I could do on such short notice. Dwarf he is, but Nibelung? No. Take away the battle armor. Make the eyes about two sizes larger,and the muscles a little more normal sized. Change that metal hammer to rock, and that helmet to stone, and poof! Nibelung. See…easy.
These guys worship in the ways of water and pack some powerful earth magic. They can form rock like clay, and make just about anything you can imagine with it. They live in underground communities called a Caz, and only the highly trusted are allowed inside. Unlike their more battle ready cousins the Nibelung have evolved into a peaceful race. If you stumble upon them in the night they are more likely to gently nudge you on your way than to attack. To say they’ve become peaceful is accurate, but that doesn’t mean they’ve kicked all their bad habits. If you’re allowed to visit them, whatever you do don’t touch their rich stuff. They turn into evil gold hording leprechauns at the mere mention of anyone getting near their cache. Can you say green menace?

Read Wolf Claimed... 

Mat will stop at nothing to claim his mate. After years of searching he's finally found her, and he'll do whatever it takes to keep her. Anything but let her go.... Wolf Claimed
