What kinds of people take up the calling of barbarian in the Federated Nations? How do they fit into the world?

Barbarians are those who connect with the ambient anima through their emotions and channel that power through their bodies to affect the world around them. This emotional connection is often called "Rage"--anger is one of the easiest ways to tap into wellspring. It's not the only way, and many consider themselves tapping into the power of the elements, of natural spirits, or of their ancestors. They all rage, just in different way and to different effects. Raging stirs volcanic emotions within the barbarian--even those barbarians who have learned to cast spells cannot do so while raging (and cannot concentrate on spells while raging, even if those were cast earlier) because of this internal roil of passion.

Dwarves

Dwarves descend from the Lesser Titans who served Earth. Like the earth, they are solid and not easily moved; their tempers are volcanic when finally roused. Dwarves have two major ethnic divisions: hill dwarves and mountain dwarves. All dwarves are overwhelmingly born as fraternal twins--one male and one female. Their society (of both races) has strongly-assigned gender roles, but neither is dominant. Dwarves are considered adult at age 25 and generally live until they are about 100.
