Durish or Durms is the outsider term for the native human population of the tropical southeastern subcontinent of Dore. While the numerous tribes of the area have difference among themselves, they are genetically and culturally distinct from other ethnicises. Historically subjugated and without access to easily farm-able land they were traditionally the most socially excluded ethnicity of Terrassa. While they seem to have been largely unaffected by the Age of Ignorance they still suffer from many geographical disadvantages.
