The Hylar are generally considered to be the most noble of the dwarves. They also have had the most members of their clan hold the position of the High King, which requires the acquisition of the Hammer of Kharas, the most famous Hylar next to Derkin Lawgiver. The Hylar claim to be the oldest dwarven "race". Their name means "highest" and Hylar dwarves are to be found in leadership roles - thanes, religious leaders, war leaders and so on. The Hylar have the best equipped and trained army too.
