The Dergon people are the tribes of human barbarians that live in the snowy wastes of Sudloc. Their tattoos are given to mark special occasions in their lives or for acts of strength and cunning for which they are renowned and feared. Considering their harsh environment, they look down on the others that live on Jenoa, and indeed a Dergon child would be skilled in survival and fighting well beyond a typical similarly-aged child from another nation or tribe.
