In the folklore of [[Germany]] and [[Scandinavia]], dwarves are a race of small supernatural beings who are known to be good with the axe and usually use axes to guard magnificent treasures buried deep inside the earth for who ever is ruling over them, usually a queen. They usually look like small men with large heads, wizened faces, wearing animal (usually a sort of goat) masks, long grey beards, weapons as big as themselves, and misshapen legs and feet.

A Dwarf is a short, stocky humanoid creature; little is known about them. On Valentine's Day in 1993, Hogwarts professor Gilderoy Lockhart, had a whole squad of Dwarves dressed up as cupids deliver singing valentines around the school, one of which was delivered to Harry Potter from Ginevra Weasley. Ginny's poem read, "His eyes are as green as a fresh pickled toad, His hair is as dark as a blackboard. I wish he was mine, he's truly divine, the hero who conquered the Dark Lord." In 1993 Harry also spotted a few raucous dwarves in the Leaky Cauldron.
