A fierce tribe of nomads on the far eastern edge of the Face of the Moon, the Berathi remained unconquered despite invasions by the Nakitsa, Lesa, Acajuren, Savirai, Parthe, and others. Their independent spirit and their savage fighting abilities made them prized mercenaries for raiding and scouting, although they tend to get out of hand during times of peace. After a series of wars with the Empire of Parthe, they finally agreed to a peace which resulted in the establishment of Beratca under Parthecan oversight. The nascent kingdom then threw back an invasion by the Acajuren Republic, an ally of Parthe, who attempted to use resentment against the grasping monarchy to aid their assault. They too, failed, and the Berathi remain independent. Well, bowing to one of their own, at least.
