The Ahmari were a fervent and relatively widespread Zinyini cult devoted to Norebo, the old King of the Gods. They were so named for the red robes they wore to identify themselves.
When Norebo was slain during the War of Heaven and Hell, the Ahmari were devastated. Keenly feeling the loss of their god and thus a great amount of their power, they became insular, eventually gathering together around a single oasis. A few managed to find comfort in faith by leaving and turning their worship elsewhere, but for the most part the Ahmari are faithless madmen known mockingly as “the Jackals”. Trusting in nothing and no one save themselves and their swords, they zealously defend their oasis, and are occasionally even hostile to other Zinyini – especially if they have Spirit Warriors traveling with them.
