The elba Darvager is a queer creature, a product of some ill union between insect and dwarf. It looks like an over-muscled dwarf except for an extra set of long black "legs" that dangle from its midsection and a smooth, charcoal colored shell that shields its flesh body. A great horn grows out from the top of the shell, perhaps to scare off other beasts. Despite the elba Darvager's grotesque appeareance there is obvious intelligence behind dark Dwarven eyes.
You notice that the elba Darvager is unnaturally quick.
Elba Darvager is usually translated as Dark Dwarf in Gamgweth.
