They are the smallest dwarven subtype, averaging 80 cm in height, and 37 kg in weight. Gnomes have very little body hair even as adults, and generally look like human children to those unfamiliar with them.
Their small size makes living in modern society even harder than it is for other dwarves, so many gnomes makes extensive use of technology like the matrix and autopilots to get around easily.
All gnomes have an unusual resistance to magic, although this does not preclude them from also having magic abilities.
