The people who inhabited the Dal Hon Plains were known as the Dal Honese. They were made up of various tribes and described as onyx-skinned. Those from the north tended to be taller and more willowy than those from the south.

Known Dal Honese Edit

HistoryEdit

The Dal Hon league of kingdoms had once been a separate entity from the Malazan Empire two generations before the events of Gardens of the Moon. But the Dal Hon reliance on individual talented warriors was no match for the coordinated, disciplined tactics of the Malazans. Before then the only nation able to successfully war against them was Itko Kan. The Dal Hon attributed their failures against the Malazans to poor generalship.[6][7]

SocietyEdit

The four sacred weapons of the Dal Hon tribes were bola, kout, hook-scythe and rock.[8]

GodsEdit

The Dal Honese worshipped a menagerie of deities. Amongst them:

  • Brithan Troop, the eleven-headed vulture goddess[9]
  • Imparala Ar, the Dung God[9]
  • Neethal Looru, the god that comes in the night whom no one has seen[10]
  • Thesorma Raadil, the Witch Eater[11]

Dal Honese ExpressionsEdit

"I'll show you the inside of the Cobra God's nose" - probably north Dal Honese[12]

"Amen and a spit in the eye t'that" - "Amen and a spit in the eye back"[12]
