The Shattershield family of dwarves was the only non-human patriar family of Baldur's Gate. They were an institution in the city, so much so that they had earned the same level of elitism and snobbishness as the Gate's human families.
The Shattershields were heavily involved in the construction of the Gate's old walls, during the city's formative years.
