Descendants of raiders from the island of Ruathym, the Northlanders were a sturdy, war-ready people who worshiped the god Tempus. Unlike the Ffolk, who also inhabited the Moonshaes, the Northlanders were not interested in the subtle beauty of nature and were more comfortable out at sea. The Northlanders were believed to be related to the Uthgardt.
The Northlanders had a longtime conflict with the Ffolk. The Ffolk were more peaceful, and Northlanders sometimes took to raiding Ffolk settlements, creating tension between the two peoples as a whole. Northlanders quieted down when High King of the Moonshae Isles, Tristan Kendrick, made initiatives towards peace between the two populations of his lands, which were continued by his daughter, Alicia Kendrick. Further advances toward peace between the two peoples brought about marriages between Northlanders and Ffolk, almost forcing families to at least tolerate each other.
