The Lost Legion
The Linowan are a race of river-dwelling raiders, hunters and gatherers. They worship Golden-Eyed Jorst, and go far afield on their riverboats to raid settlements. They are ferocious fighters who specialize in shock tactics. Their greatest heroes wear carved wooden masks.
The Third White River Clan includes some Linowan of note:
*Thracia, War Leader. Said to have been cursed in girlhood, Thracia is barren and childless, and devoted her life to warfare. She has a large scar just under her right eye, and a special Linowan mask representing her spirit animal, the deer.
*Varro, Sub-Chief. Has a crippled arm, broken by Guildsmen. Formerly a slave. Grumpy. Scarred back.
*Kara, Varro’s second in command. Bully. Mannish-looking. Dislikes being confronted. Was recently confronted by Harkon over the theft of a knife.
*Ten, thief. Blond, blue-eyed, half-Northerner. Considered to be born dishonest. Timid and afraid.
*Yin, young brave. Yin is a Linowan girl with an uncanny resemblance to Leesa Tanheart. She has killed fourteen people by her own account. She is Kara’s “girl”.
*Ron, young shaman. Scarcely eighteen, Ron is a boy-faced shaman with a patchy beard, who was chosen by the spirits at a young age. Very nervous and lacking in confidence.
*Hothar, woodcarver. Talented and skilled carver who made the shield Little Devil.
*Korr, big strong warrior who trains the younger ones.
*Naia, young woman. Hunter and archer. Killed in the raid on Sosa.
*Rani, a middle-aged widow.
*Yi, young woman.
