Updates

Added/updatesdsome info in the "Notable Regions" post. Also added a blurb concerning kazari dwellings in the "Culture and Society" post.

Assuming any of you are following along, please forgive the "stream of consciousness" style, here. I start refining or cleaning up one part of my notes and, often times, it leads me into other thoughts and considerations that I hadn't considered. Once I get organized enough to create actual Audalis pages, I hope it'll be much more fluid.

"Sourcebook"

Okay, so I've uploaded all of the information in this thread to my Google Drive as a document entitled "Of Capasha and the Kazari"

It's been made shareable so if any of you would like to take a peek, just click on the link above. As of this moment, it's a "living document," meaning that it's prone to edits and updates on the fly. Anyhoo... enjoy as you will.

New updates

The "Language" post  (and the corresponding section of the "sourcebook") has been updated to include notes on "written" Kazari.

Notable Kazari

  • Rrowl and Keziri - Believed among the clans to be the first of the Kazari people and progenitors of all those that came after. Legend has it that Khr’a anthropomorphized them from simple tigers shortly after she raised Capasha from the seas. Keziri was created first and Rrowl shortly thereafter to serve as her mate. It is possible that Rrowl and Keziri were not truly the first of the kazari and may not have actually existed, at all (at least under those names); given the reverence bestowed upon their names and memories, though, it would be impossible to convince a Capashan of this.
  • Khan Fa’ur’qan - The first Kazari to unite several clans in a common cause. Fa’ur’qan is credited with leading these united clans in a campaign against the Slaa’kar, driving  the lizard folk from the jungles and containing them in the Gabon’saa Marshes. The union of these clans, too, is thought to be the first true establishment of a khanate, thus making Fa’ur’qan the first Strakhan on Capasha. His legacy, in “modern” times, is the Ch’mbui Khanate.
  • Bhak’chu - Bhak’chu, like Fa’ur’qan, is a legendary Kazari warrior of old; in fact, there are many legends that place him among the khans who committed their clans to Fa’ur’qan’s campaign against the Slaa’kar. If those legends are to be believed, however, one must also believe that, following the containment of the lizard folk in the marshes of Gabon’saa, Bhak’chu became jealous of Fa’ur’qan’s success and, on more than one occasion, challenged Fa’ur’qan for the position of Strakhan of the first khanate resultant of that campaign. Having challenged and lost to Fa’ur’qan on three separate occasions, Bhak’chu was figuratively emasculated and literally banished from the proto-Ch’mbui khanate. Humiliated, Bhak’chu, along with the few kazari who were still willing to follow him, migrated as far as he could from the Rashiik Wilds and established ranges for his clan in the Twilight Forest. While he is revered to this day as a great warrior among the kazari (underscored by the fact that an entire khanate still uses his name), his defeat at Fa’ur’qan’s hands is also the source of the common kazari expletive “T’ak Bhak’chu” (or “Bhak’chu’s Balls” ).
  • Khr’dun N’ghali - A shaman of the Notched Ear Clan. Credited with the creation of the written Kazari language.
  • Khatun Kalani - Current khatun of the Blessed Claw clan. Kalani is notable in that she is one of the very few Kazari to ever channel and utilize “arcane” magic (as opposed to the more druidic/divine sort utilized by most cat-folk shamans). She was the "runt of the litter," so to speak. Born last, small and physically weak as compared to her littermate(s). As such, she wasn't even expected to survive her youth, let alone thrive and advance through clan hierarchy as she did. Her lack of "physical prowess/presence" is more than made up for by her intelligence, cunning, and charisma. While she's not much of a toe-to-toe fighter, herself, she's a brilliant tactician/strategist and has been able to utilize these traits to defeat any opponents she's ever had to actually fight despite being physically outmatched. Again, despite her size, she's a very attractive and charming thing, capable of winning battles with words as opposed to weapons in many cases. This, combined with her other "exotic" traits have, thus far, landed her four "consorts," the support of her clan's shaman from an early age, and, of course, the position of khatun.
  • Kh’ur Ch’dau - Ch’dau was a young warrior of the Stalking Ghost clan who, through circumstances that have yet to be revealed or explained, was taken from Capasha and found himself on Antaron’s shores. He was found, near death, on a beach in Coria by members of the Silver Wyvern mercenary company. He was nursed back to health by the company’s healers and befriended by Roddric Cliff, a ranking lieutenant. With no known way of returning to Capasha, Ch’dau joined and served in many campaigns with the Silver Wyverns and became known to many (friend and foe alike) as The Silver Cat of Coria. In his last campaigns with the Wyverns, Ch’dau was captured by Sendrian forces and held in a dungeon in Davnor for a time before being “rescued” by a half-sylvari thief named Kithran Aldeath. Ch’dau and Kithran became fast friends (if somewhat uneasily, at first) and have adventured together since their escape from Sendria. Sometime after their exploits in and outside of Sendria, the pair were recruited into a party led by Arancon Galandel, a Sylvari Bladesinger, and Moreno “Gib” Enderedre, a cleric of Therassor.

((Compiling a list of kazari who are notable in the history of Capasha and/or Antaron. "Sourcebook" updated, as well.))
