Orphans of the Greenblood


The orphans still mourn the loss of their distant homeland and so continue to practice the traditions of their river-faring ancestors. They consider themselves to be “orphans” as they are of the Rhoynar and have been orphaned from her, their “Mother,” the river Rhoyne which in their faith also holds a divine status, therefore they also identify the river as “Mother Rhoyne.”

It is said that when they first came to Dorne they built their smaller boats from the burned carcasses of the ships they used to cross the narrow sea. The orphans of the Greenblood pole their boats up and down the river and its tributaries, fishing, picking fruits, and doing whatever work is required. They go to Planky Town to trade with the carracks, cogs, and galleys from across the narrow sea. Some have been known to sell cloth and spices up and down the Greenblod. They dance and sing on the river, and are also said to have great knowledge of the healing arts, able to cure warts and produce the best midwives.
