The Korting is the ruler of the Dwarves. He reigns over them in a lazy, laid-backed fashion, often ordering them to do his bidding and work. He attempted to have Mallory Grace never die and kill her brothers Simon and Jared Grace, but was killed along with the other Dwarves by Mulgarath. He is also shown in times of war to be the leader of all fighting dwarfs as soon in the massacar at the old Qurrey. He appears in Book 4. He was not in the film because they went from Book 3 to Book 5.
