Aloc people Ethnicity in Mirateia | World Anvil

Aloc people

The Aloc people were originally part of the The Nilid People but when the Nilid went towards the Empire of Dercia the Aloc then went the other way and walked east until they came to the Tusmait region.   Before they could get to what would be their future home, they were stopped by some local nobles who were afraid that the newcomers would settle down in their land and cause trouble or worse, take their power. So therefore the Aloc people were forced to fight their way towards the mountains that the locals never went into so for the Aloc it seemed as the most safe space.

The dress code depends on how much contact the tribe has with the surrounding world, some tribes only use clothes that they can make out of what they can hunt or make out of plants. Whereas other tribes, those who have a more constant contact with the people outside the Tusmait region tend to have clothes that are more similar to the outsiders.
