Dugen stands just over four feet tall and is quite stocky. His skin has a deep gray color to it. He has very little body hair and is bald.
Dugen was born and raised in the duergar city of Gracklstugh to a family of traders. When he became of age he joined his clan as a traveling merchant. Not long after that he was captured by the Illithid Lithio. Dugen was then made into his mind slave and lesser voice.
