Andaxil

The dwarfs, having carved the mines, knew them better than anyone else. Yet, the mines remained shrouded in mystery, as though the mountain housed ancient beings of great power deep within its bosom.

Andaxil is to the dwarfish nation what the Eiffel Tower is to France, the Statue of Liberty to the United States, or tea to the Britons. It is at once a symbol of their unity, the flagship of their power, and the basis for numerous idioms and expressions.

Here are some examples of such usage: A dwarf who believes he is being conned could said, "Don't you Andaxil me with your wishful wishes."

"Where, in the Andaxil, did I lose my axing ax?" is common when dealing with misplaced objects.

"My Andaxil, she is beautifully beautiful and beyond beauty," is another expression used to compliment parents on the birth of a she-dwarf. Comparing the comeliness of a dwarf to Andaxil is a praise of the highest order.

And yet, no one—no dwarf from living memory—has ever laid eyes on the lost cave called Andaxil, and no one truly knows what mystery lies dormant behind its cursed walls.
