Silvertongue Seadogs Ethnicity in Cathrea | World Anvil

Silvertongue Seadogs

Ah yes, the Silvertongue Seadogs, a bit wild for my tastes but you will not find a city this big with more comradery. Even though these people are now known as a bunch of pirate hardies, their history predates even the city they live in and goes back to a noble family in the early 1000s.
