Chaos dwarves are a type of corrupted and dangerous dwarves found in various locations, most notably the Wilderness and the Chaos Dwarf Battlefield. They are known to attack with melee and have a high accuracy for their levels, despite their fairly low life points. They qualify as dwarves for Slayer assignments.

Chaos dwarves are notable for following Zamorak instead of Guthix, like most dwarves do. They are also known for the muddy key that they can drop, which is used to open the muddy chest deep in the Wilderness at the heart of the Lava Maze.

History[edit | edit source]

It is revealed in the quest Forgettable Tale of a Drunken Dwarf that chaos dwarves are the result of experiments by The Red Axe in their attempt to conquer Keldagrim, and in Forgiveness of a Chaos Dwarf that The Red Axe have been kidnapping ordinary dwarves, brainwashing them, and using machinery to turn them into chaos dwarves, becoming forced allied to Zamorak.

According to the Azdaran document, all dwarves once possessed magic, though the god Zamorak put a curse on the dwarves that slowly corrupted the magic within them; the dark magic within their veins would eventually transform them into mindless beings locked in a perpetual, incoherent rage, although they seem to retain some form of basic intelligence, able to utilise weapons such as hand cannons and fight as a united force. The Red Axe forcibly unlocked the tainted magic in their kidnapped dwarves using dwarven-gnomish technology, and used the ogre shaman Grunsh's magic to brainwash them into service.

Since the transition into chaos dwarves is more-or-less a 'natural' process after Zamorak's curse, it can be inferred that all dwarves who did not have their magic suppressed through the Council of the Elder Magi's rituals or controlled the curse through Saradomin's blessing would eventually turn into chaos dwarves.

According to Ikadia, other races such as humans cannot be subjected to a similar transformation.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Prior to the graphical update of dwaves, chaos dwarves appear to be otherwise normal-looking dwarves clad in steel armour and red clothing, and wielding warhammers.

After the graphical update the dwarves' look were updated into their current canonical appearance, as detailed according to the Lores and Histories entry, The Coat Thief:

He was like no dwarf I'd ever seen in Keldagrim. His skin was dark red and had a rough texture, and it seemed to glow from within like lava... Even unconscious, his face was locked in a grimace of rage. He smelled of sulphur and radiated unmistakable heat...

...The heat was growing stronger. I stepped back, and Hilda did the same. The dwarf's skin glowed brighter and brighter red and then began to disintegrate, crumbling in on itself like wood curling up in a fire... In less than a minute he was gone, leaving only a few bones and some scorched armour fragments in a thinning cloud of black smoke...

— Commander Veldaban[1]
