Logho

The Logho are one of the two peoples who arrived most recently in the Archipelago. Standing tall, usually between 180 and 200 cm, and with dark skin ranging from deep brown to nearly black. Pure-blooded Logho most commonly have black, curly or wavy hair, and their eyes are usually a somewhat startling array of light colours, from blue and green to copper and violet. Adult Logho, both male and female, carry proud, curling horns. Logho – both men and women - often keep their hair long, pinned, braided, oiled or in dreadlocks. Warriors however usually wear their hair shorter. Full beards are common among men, but are usually kept fairly short. Their hair usually turns light grey or white with age, and is naturally curly. Logho fashion tends towards bright and strong colours such as red, green, blue and yellow; and long, flowing and airy garments are very common. Jewellery is also common, with rings, earrings, torcs and bracelets in bronze and silver and even gold among the more wealthy. Gemstones are less common.   Logho culture has always been focused around strong ties to hearth and home, and the Logho have been farmers and herders longer than any other human people. This is reflected by the primary religion, the gods of which are the Goddess of Grain and the God of Beasts. There is also a secondary religion that focuses on the worship of the spirits who make their home in the ground. These spirits vary from place to place, and many Logho bring a “home stone” with them wherever they go, so the spirits of their home can protect them on foreign soil.   Blood ties are very important to the Logho, and as such they tend to form large and convoluted extended families, and it is not unusual to find three or more generations of a family living under the same – sprawling – roof, often referred to as a Hearth or simply House. Heredity is most often counted along the male line, however, as it is considered to be “carried by the seed”. Logho can interbreed with Makkali, though only halfbloods whose father is Logho are legally recognized as heirs.   Craftsmanship is also central to Logho culture, and as such, craftsmen – especially smiths - are well respected. The Logho of Bakish are one of few peoples in the archipelago that run sizeable mining operations, and most of the archipelago's iron, bronze and gold originates in Bakish. This mastery of the smith's arts has also led to Bakish warriors being some of the most heavily armoured in the archipelago.
