House of Sanglier: Clan of the Beast
“Aliens in a New World”
The people of the House of Sanglier, the Khodé, are cousins to the people of Arko, but the Khodé came much later to The Realm, and synthesized far less. The House of Sanglier remains deeply suspicious of the Elder Houses, and though they have a culture similar to the Goddi of Arko they have protected their old traditions much more strongly.
Though currently not as well established politically and economically in the Realm, the Khodé make up for it in martial prowess. The warband or weorod remains the primary organizational force in Sanglieran society. Temperamental and independent to a fault, the Khodé nonetheless make the best of allies. Where Arkans laugh in the face of danger, the faces of the Khodé inspire fear.
From their first ship landings in The Realm, the Khodé fought fiercely with The Elder Houses to establish their lineage’s claim on the land. There is little love from the Elder Houses for the “new” House of Sanglier, though the Khodé do not shrink from any excuse to feud with their Arkan neighbors as well. Arkans rarely describe their cousins as friendly, but the people of Sanglier 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 the religious and cultural practices of the Khodé, the old world of the newcomers can be glimpsed at: warrior-gods and sacrifice, trial-by-combat and the blood feud.
