Dwimorcarch means, loosely translated, “haunted fang”, a reference to the idea that their fangs are the instruments of justice for the wrongly slain Blaze.
The Dwimorcarch split from the Shenandoah in 1643 A.D. after “The Dissension”, a difference of opinion over if all Blades should pay for the crimes of Alabaster’s kin. The tribe split literally in half, with the King of the Dragons taking over the role of Leader for the Dwimorcarch, leaving his brother in his place to lead the Shenandoah. It wasn’t that he agreed with them; he thought his rank might reign them in somewhat. When his sons were born, he gave his place to the eldest. The direct decedent and, eventually, heir has led ever since. However, with time even his rank was not enough to garner respect from a people whose values he did not share.
The tribe formed as mentioned above, and many of its members believed that the time had come to return to traditional values, to remember not to trust outsiders, and most certainly not to breed with them. It has remained xenophobic and chauvinistic to this day.
The tribe is a collection of families led by a patriarch and ranked by said male’s rank in relation to the others. Females are expected to show respect and obey the male in charge of them and any direct male ancestor, i.e. a grandfather or great-grandfather.
The Dwimorcarch speaks mainly their own language, which is simply a native tongue of the dragons. If forced they will use common speech.
While most dragons can live at least a century, it is common for Dwimorcarch members to die due to the skirmishes and attacks with their neighbors. Many do not live to see their hundredth year.
Areas with significant populationsEdit
The tribal lands take up almost the whole western half of Rosmerta.
Related ethnic groupsEdit
The Dwimorcarch members are descended from European dragons, and are mostly of the Blaze subspecies.

The name’s origin is really from J. R. R. Tolkien: “Dmimor” means “ghost/haunted” in the Rohirrim language, and “Carch” means “fang” in Sindarin Elvish. Cutler would like to thank Akshay Seepargauth for the link below and info after she lost her notes.
