Tarëans are golden of skin and dark of hair. Their ears often come to a slight point due to the mixing of the Tarë with the ancient Ellenë of old. They are a slight people, wiry and meant for peaceful times, but not unfamiliar to the ways of war.
The Tarë are considered the fathers of the western world. The originators of the caste system, founders of the caste system, and unifiers of the world. Tarëan castes founded Aman, the Palatine, and fathered the clans. Famed for their innovative work in the arts, architecture, literature, and most civilized arts, the Tarë are now the servants of nobles throughout the Laurëan empire. As administrators, they are reputed as creative bureaucrats.
The Tarë live in small communities in the south, or in the courts as retainers with their families. Once the masters of the known world, the Tarë seem to have long accepted servitude and rarely show signs of rebellion. The Tarë are most famous for their writing and their written language of abstract glyphs. Their language still remains the Lingua Franca of state conversation, though Laurëan is considered the language of the nobility. And were it not for the infrastructure and groundwork of the Tarë, the inter-dependent civilization of the Laurëans would never have been possible.
Tarëan society is highly patriarchal and it is utterly hierarchical. Later conquerors learned the caste system from the Tarë and the Tarë still remain the masters of their system. The Tarë remain in their castes till death, not rising or falling. They marry within their castes and have lovers within their castes. Women are the property of the head of the clan and may be delegated to marriages at will. The Tarë are mostly Ecclesians but a small remnant still worship their divine ancestor (Atar) in small shrines that are overlooked by their overlords.
The High Tarë wear robes with long cloaks with beautiful edges. The lower order wear shorter clothes with baggy trousers.
