Gnomes are a race of Fae, resembling short, stocky elves, with inquisitive, good-natured faces. Male gnomes commonly grow full, bushy beards, a feature not shared by other Fae. Gnomes stand about three Kels in height, and what they lack in physical strength, they make up for in their cleverness. Gnomes, particularly the ones who went underground to dwell in Midworld, have incredibly advanced technology.
