The epic dwarven defender has become the very definition of immovable object. He is a stalwart warrior that can stand against virtually any foe imaginable. The defender is a sponsored champion of a dwarven cause, a dwarven aristocrat, a dwarven deity or the dwarven way of life. As the name might imply, this character is a skilled combatant trained in the arts of defense. A line of dwarven defenders is a far better defense than a 10-foot-thick wall of stone and much more dangerous.
