The Sah Basir
The Sah Basir are a nomadic, seafaring people and their majestic clan ships are easily spotted the rare times they make landfall in Braided Shore. Sah Basir vaguely resemble birdlike humanoids and are of similar height to most Asken folk.
In the early Third Age, when Asken folk first encountered stray Sah Basir, some assumed them to be ocean spirits. Without means of communicating with them, some Asken communities began worshipping the visitors alongside the Sefra, but that practice has since disappeared.
Sah Basir clothing and attire reflects their seafaring, nomadic culture. While Sah Basir sometimes make jewellery out of various metals, they most often make it out of colourful coral and seashells. Most Sah Basir clothes are made out of rough textiles and plant-fibre twine.
The Sah Basir’s secrets, which allow them to so masterfully traverse the ocean, are well-kept and attempts to know more of their customs and crafts have so far failed. Among those secrets is a mysterious way of producing a kind of textile that does not get waterlogged, and remains light even when submerged in water.
