The House of Sahn-Gliér: Clan of the Beast

“Orphans of the Sahn”

The people of the House of Sahn-Gliér, the Khodé, have a lineage that is distantly connected to the people of the House of Arko. And while both peoples came from east of the sea, the Khodé have been much more tenacious in holding on to their old traditions.

From their first ship landings on the northern shores of Nagooth, the Khodé allied with outcast goblin peoples living in the region and fought fiercely with rivals in the west and north to establish a claim on  the vast lowlands know as the Sahn. There is little love from the Elder Houses for the 'new' House of Sahn-Gliér, and for a long while the Arkans mistrusted their new neighbors as well, though in the Arkan civil war Sahn-Gliér helped Aetrig's people against their usurpers. Arkans rarely describe their cousins as friendly, but the people of Sahn-Gliér do have a loyal nature and are highly respected as oath-keepers. Thankfully the Khodé do not rise quickly to anger, though they rarely forgive and never forget.

Through thetraditions of the Khodé, the old world of the 'newcomers' can be glimpsed at: warrior-gods and sacrifice, trial-by-combat and the blood feud. Central to Sahn-Gliéran cosmology is the sacred hunt of Toor-Toorch, the Great Boar, a hunting custom very similar to the tusked and horned goblin-people of the Sahn who first showed the Khodé kindness and mercy as foreigners in an alien land. The goblin name for the region the Khodé first inhabited was incorporated into the name of their Esteemed House: The Wild Ones of the Sahn. A glié is a khodéic word for a wild beast but also used as a poetic synonym for an orphan. The house may be thought of as “The Adopted of The Sahn” or, more in spirt of the word glié, “The Orphans of The Sahn.” Many of the House of Sahn-Gliér are also displaced individuals from goblin, hobgoblin and even ogrish clans.
