Valayan Priestesses

Valayan priestesses is a secretly society of dwarven culture. They are the chosen of Valaya, and take care of the daily business such as caring for the wounded and helping out with delivering the infants. They spend most of their hours in the temples of their deities and have taken a live of celibacy. Apart from having a part in dwarf society, they have heir part in dwarf warfare. If a threat nears a dwarf hold, the priestesses leave their temples together with the rest of the dwarf army and huddle together in their own units on the battlefield.Apart from their tough fighting techniques they have an adapt form of magic. As they fall to their knees they start praying and call upon their deities to grand them strength and aid them. A unit of priestesses is something no dwarf general can do without.
