In appearance, they are tall, with dark tan or olive skin, straight dark hair, and green or blue eyes. This makes them somewhat similar in appearance to the Lirgeni who once lived in the northern part of what is now the Sodden Lands.
The Caldaru of Senghor believe their ancestors arrived in the region from a distant land, lost contact with their parent civilisation, and made a home for themselves in the Mwangi Expanse. This is further reinforced by their unusual dialect and unique words.
They are renowned sailors and diplomats, making Senghor a popular place for trade, and skilled engineers who have built the city to withstand powerful storms. The city's Caldaru-dominated navy also expertly defends the city from pirates. This combination of traits lends credence to theories that the Caldaru originated from a lost seafaring power.
