The Durins are a race in the world of Arknights.

Description

Two male Durins having a drinking contest.

Durins resemble dwarves from various fantasy settings in our world, which can be seen from their stout, short stature that is estimated to be around 130 cm. They also have pointed ears, have a culture of being heavy drinkers, and are excellent miners, geologists, and underground surveyors.

All Durins hail from an underground world which is currently unexplored by the surface-dwellers. It is said that the Durins are masters of advanced technology, ranging from cities within domes that replicates the surface world, to a tiny yet complicated Arts device. As a matter of fact, many Durins only come to the surface world just for fun and to mitigate frustration from the lack of exciting moments out of their land's utopic nature.[1] Due to their country's isolation, the Durins tend to have a simple, primitive, yet optimistic mindset which makes them much more peaceful compared to others.

Notable
