Trudd is a deity worshiped almost entirely by dwarves. He is the youngest son of the primary dwarven deity, Torag. Despite his relatively young age Trudd is the strongest deity in the dwarven pantheon, and as a result is often left to guard his father's halls while Torag is absent.12


Trudd's sports a remarkably short beard for a dwarf, which spawns many tales, including one that he sold it for some unknown boon.12 However, most dwarven theologians consider this to be a heretical tale.3


Although he is a very dutiful god and son, Trudd finds time to have fun and can be quite the joker. This has resulted in him being well liked among many gods, including those outside his pantheon. He has a notably strong friendship with Cayden Cailean and the two are often involved romantically.4

Chelonidal agathions

Despite dwarves' general aversion to the sea, chelonidal agathions share many interests in common with Trudd, especially around military matters. This closeness and respect is demonstrated by Trudd's favouring of chelonidal legions to aid him and his interests.5
