=== Dwarves of Orzammar ===
The [[Dwarf|dwarves]] of [[Orzammar]] are noted for their polyamory (the keeping of multiple intimate partners), especially among the upper classes. While a dwarf has only one legal spouse, many nobles keep concubines, typically [[noble hunter]]s, who are raised up to be part of the household and have their names recorded in the [[Memories]]. A dwarf's [[caste]] is determined by that of their same-sex parent, so many [[casteless]] offer themselves to [[Noble caste|nobles]] or to other higher caste dwarves as sexual partners in the hopes of producing a child of the noble's gender. As dwarven fertility is in dangerous decline due to chronic exposure to [[darkspawn]] corruption<ref>{{Cite wot|34}}</ref> as well as because of constant war with them, any noble child is considered a blessing, and such offers are rarely turned down. If such a union produces a child of the commoner's gender, however, the infant will be rejected, as it would be part of the lower caste and an embarrassment to the higher caste parent's [[house]] if it's allowed to stay with them.
