Caldaru (human ethnicity)

The Caldaru people of the city of Senghor in the Mwangi Expanse are racially and linguistically different from the Mwangi peoples found elsewhere in the expanse.[1][2]

In appearance, they are tall, with dark tan or olive skin, straight dark hair, and green or blue eyes.[2] This makes them somewhat similar in appearance to the Lirgeni who once lived in the northern part of what is now the Sodden Lands.[1]

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.[1] This is further reinforced by their unusual dialect and unique words.[2]

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.[2]
