"Dwarfs" and "dwarves" are both used, but "dwarfs" is more
traditional (Disney's Snow White had dwarfs).  JRR Tolkien used
"dwarves" as a sort of philological in-joke, and fantasy writers
have tended to copy him ever since.

Do we know whether any of them are represented as female?  In a lot
of fantasy settings it's assumed that females are never seen, or
that they're all treated as male...
