Dun Huraedonites

People of the Eres

If the Pol-Nelqorana are the inheritors of the legacy of the Nelqorana, then the Dun Huraedonites - the Men of Lower Huraedon - are the inheritors of the legacy of the Eresdolhn. The history of the Men of Lower Huraedon cannot be separated from the history of that of the Elves. But as the Elves diminish and Men take their place as the premier race on Erub, the Dun Huraedonites enter a new era. They are no longer vassals of either High or Wood Elf; they are now free to adventure and search for romance. Hod the Great, the first to unite Huraedon, was the first of many bold stars to emerge out of the wreckage of the Black King's empire. There are more to come.

The Dun Huraedonites populate the region of Lower Huraedon. Lower Huraedon is a region of four lands, separated from each other by the mighty Tječona river, the river Thronged, and the vampire mists of Vulga. The eastern coasts are the most heavily populated of the regions. The eastern marshes, flatlands, and wetlands are home to some of the Empire's most prosperous cities, greatest among them being Quen Called Thalassokratia.

The Dun Huraedonites are split into three great peoples, though there is a great amount of mixing between them. Their character and appearances depend upon their resident region. There is a distinct enough difference in their physiology and history to merit a separate description of each group in this article.

In regards to the residents of Isdoni: the people there average around 5'5ft. in height. They are a thickset people with long faces, with a narrow and projected nose with wider nostrils, high cheekbones, slightly sloped forehead, fuller lips, and good teeth. Their hair is usually dark, though some of the Isdoni Huraedonites have fair hair. Their skin is usually a brownish olive color, though some of them are fair-skinned. They are a hairy people.

In regards to the residents of Visdoni: they are descended from a migrant people from Greater Huraedon. They are about 5'6ft. in height. They are a more slender people than those in Isdoni and those in Chedoni, though they are still more stout than the people of the north. Their faces are long, with long and hooked noses. Their cheekbones are high. They are born dark-skinned, but they darken even more under the clear skies of Lower Huraedon. Their hair is usually brown, though blond is another common color. Their eyes are usually brown though lighter shades make common appearance.

In the far past, the residents of Chedoni came in a wave of migration to Lower Huraedon. They pushed an older culture, called the Yeernsaen, into the Western Mountains. They average at 5'4ft. in height. They are a brown-skinned and stout people with thick necks and broad shoulders. Their faces are wider than those in Visdoni or Isdoni, but are still more narrow than the faces of the people of the Southern Marches.
