Kadar - Imperian Online Help

Kadar

When the first lycaeans came to be beneath the shifting influence of Moradeim, many of them were ill-met by the prevailing population of Aetherius once they travelled from the boundaries their native forest. One such group chose to flee the hatred of their once neighbors and seek a new life in the unexplored reaches of the north. However, a number of obstacles destroyed much of the group, and all would have perished had the lycaeans not met a pack of wolves who had equally suffered from the cruel winters and dangerous avalanches. Although the exact nature of that ancient pact has been lost to time, the modern dwellers of the village of Kadar still retain a close symbiosis with a nearby pack of wolves, often hunting together and living side by side. 

While not opposed to civilization, the Kadar lycaeans hold respect for the rugged perseverance of Northerners and have little patience for what they see as the comfortable weakness of milder climates, holding ideals close to those of the nearby Ithaqua. Despite the almost barbaric nature of their settlement, the dwellers of Kadar Valley have great skill with the spear and the knife, and some truly curious crafts have come from that snowy encampment deep in the frozen forests of Ithaqua.
