The People of the Black Blood were Malar-worshiping lycanthropes from the the many scattered forests throughout Faerûn.[3] They were more of a loose group of small tribes than a formal organization.[4]

OrganisationEdit

Each tribe among the People of the Black Blood acted much like a pack with the leader of the tribe being the strongest member of the group, known as a Bloodmaster. Many of the tribes had their own social hierarchy, based often on the leader's animal form.[1]

Having little contact with other tribes unless Malar required it of them, the various tribes claimed its own territory to watch over.[1] On occasion when a pack's Bloodmaster has lived beyond their usefulness, an agent of Malar is sent to challenge them and select a new one from among the tribe. In 1372 DR, this agent was Kyrran Graylord,[5]

Bases of OperationEdit

The group was most active in Faerûn's forests.[1]

Chondalwood 
The pack here was led by Bloodmaster Totoruan, an ugly shield dwarf wereboar who was once an adventurer.[1][6]
Chult 
Since the tribe here was taken over by Bloodmaster Mainu, she had only called High Hunts against those who have exploited her jungle.[1]
Cormanthor 
In 1368 DR, Vakennis slew her father, the previous Bloodmaster, and took control of the were-wolverine tribe.[6][1]
High Forest 
At least two separate tribes resided here. One was led by Bloodmaster Heskret[6], where his werebat followers were known for snatching up their victims and dropping them from great heights.[1]
The other tribe gained a reputation in the High Forest for their werewolf Bloodmaster Narona's[6] love of human flesh, so much so that her High Hunts attracted lycanthropes from even other clans.[1]
Moonwood 
The tribe here became increasingly numerous by 1372 DR, with their numbers reaching about 70 strong.[7] Several alters to Malar and small shelters were dotted about the northern portion of the Moonwood but they considered their refuge of Claw Hollow their rallying point, roughly half the tribe could be found there at any one time.[8] Bloodmaster Jarthon Drael[4] began a series of attacks on the town of Quaervarr in Kythorn in an effort to stop their expansion into his territory.[9]

HistoryEdit

It was difficult to pinpoint when the origins of the People of the Black Blood due to the disparate and independant nature of their organisation. However it was likely the first tribe came together under direction of Malar, possibly to track down a specific quarry.[3]

In the century following the Spellplague, a sect known as the Black Blood Tribe established an enclave on the southern part of the Island of Moray in the Moonshae Isles.[10]
