Keldagrim has a massive population; in fact, it has some of the most NPCs of any city in Gielinor. From wealthy businessmen to low-life gamblers, Keldagrim's population is a varied group. This is one of its many distinctive features among the 'race-cities' of Gielinor (along with Lletya, Dorgesh-Kaan, Gu'Tanoth, etc.) - there's not even enough Cave Goblins in Dorgesh-Kaan to fill half of the homes there!
Note: A * after an NPC's name indicates that they can assign mini-tasks.
The Black GuardEdit
- Commander Veldaban - The commander of the Black Guard regiment in Keldagrim. The Black Guard is the dwarven military and police force. He is one of the most dutiful dwarves in all of Keldagrim and is the first person players are likely to meet on their initial visit to the city.
- Supreme Commander Bisi - Bisi, the supreme commander of the entire Black Guard. He commands all of the lower commanders, such as Commander Veldaban and Commander Lawgof (who is currently involved in a battle with the goblins at the Coal Trucks).
- Vaeringk - An off-duty Black Guard that spends his time drinking in the Rat Pits Bar. He is usually very drunk.
- Colonel Grimsson - Grimsson, or "The Colonel" as he is now known, was once an elite member of the Dwarven Black Guard, earning himself the title "The Butcher of Barendir". After being decommissioned for a brutal assault upon a fellow guard, he became the right-hand man of Hreidmar.

- Thak - A basic Black Guard fighter, Thak guards the Keldagrim north mine near the River Kelda.
The Red AxeEdit
- Hreidmar - Director of the Red Axe, the most powerful company in the Mining Consortium. He is old, hunchbacked, hook-nosed, and ruthless when it comes to politics. As a result, he is highly disliked (and, in some cases, respected) by much of the dwarven community. His lust for power and ruthless methods have even lead to the Black Guard's intervention at times. His current plans are unknown.
- Hreidmar's Cat - What would a powerful dwarf be without a loyal cat? Hreidmar's cat happily follows his master wherever he goes, and may well be helping Hreidmar keep an eye on the other companies...
- Vigr* - Owner of the Keldagrim warhammer store. He is a particularly unfriendly dwarf who works for the Red Axe.
- Red Axe Secretary - Hreidmar's personal assistant. He helps run the company and takes a significant amount of Hreidmar's heavy workload. Like his boss, he is perpetually in a bad mood, particularly towards humans.
- Grunsh - Unknown to the rest of Keldagrim, the Red Axe has employed a mighty ogre shaman. The Red Axe discovered him nearly frozen to death on Trollweiss Mountain several years ago. How he came to be on that mountain is unknown, but it was of little to concern to the company, as it was soon discovered that he was an ogre shaman. Intelligent by ogre standards, deadly in combat, and steadfastly loyal, he has become one of the company's most important members.
- Brendt - Brendt is a member of the Red Axe. He recently left Keldagrim with his partner Grundt, and is currently negotiating some type of trade deal with the people of Jatizso. The exact nature of this deal is unknown, although it can be assumed it involves the mineral wealth of Jatizso. He loves to eat.
- Grundt - Like his partner, Brendt, he recently left Keldagrim to negotiate a deal between King Gjuki Sorvott IV and the Red Axe. Since he arrived in Jatizso, however, he has done little but eat.
- Dwarven Boatman - A boatman that will take players to Keldagrim and back from the mines south of the city. He is also the start point of "The Giant Dwarf." He will allow players to use his boat for free, although his navigational skills are questionable.
- Dwarven Ferryman - These dwarves will ferry players across the Kelda River, to the far end of the mines and back. Their services cost 2 coins, but if players have a Ring of Charos (A) they will take them for free. If you are in the far end of the mine and don't have 2 more coins, the dwarf on that side will also take you for free.
- Dwarven Ferryman (gold ore) - This dwarven ferryman will take players' gold ore to the bank, for a small fee. He is useful when mining in the Arzinian Mines. It is suggested players equip a Ring of Charos (A) when using his services, as he will charge less gold ore.
- Cart Conductor - Helps to direct traffic in the mine cart station and sells tickets to White Wolf Mountain and The Dwarven mine.

- Brown Engine Director - The leader of the Brown Engine Mining Company and one of the eight rulers of Keldagrim. He will not allow women to join his company, due to his belief that women are inferior to men. It is likely that the Brown Engine and the Yellow Fortune have a strong rivalry because of this.

Here players can have their armbands changed for 500 coins.

- Factory Worker - These dwarves help to maintain the blast furnace factory. Rather than operate the blast furnace, however, these dwarves operate the smaller machinery upstairs, which is used for small tasks such as flattening metal bars.
- Factory Manager - Owner of the factory that houses the blast furnace activity. Until recently, he would not allow people to use the furnace inside unless they paid him 100 coins.

Until recently, this dwarf was a respectable citizen and was not overly obsessed with beer.

He is also a firm lover of the illusive Kelda Stout.

- Captain Tom - A grey cat that is often seen battling in the rat pits.
- Loki - A yellow cat that is often seen battling in the rat pits.
- Tombar - A strangely tall dwarf that wanders the Keldagrim Palace Gardens. Perhaps because of his height, he is particularly grumpy and will rarely talk to strangers.

He recently travelled into the lands north of Trollheim, following a rumour he heard that ruins had been discovered in the icy wastelands of the north. Once there, he climbed down into the depths of an ancient temple, where he found armies of demons, orks, hellhounds, and many other creatures locked in combat. He fled the temple and returned to Keldagrim, where he left his Explorer's notes in the Keldagrim Library, unaware that he had discovered the God Wars Dungeon. What became of him afterwards is unknown, although in his notes he speaks of travelling into the Poison Waste.
