History

Mainland Quaxin Xun was originally settled and populated by the ancestors of modern-day Qonklese people. The islands of Quaxin Xun were originally populated by the Sahandamanese people (TODO: this is a meta-name), who still live in isolated areas of the islands today. Starting in the 8th century BC, sea raiders from modern-day Eimam settled on the Xuni islands, from where they began to raid the coast of the mainland. Increasing numbers settled there, pushing out and intermixing with the Qonklese. By the 6th century, the coast was mostly Ngerupic. In the year 563 BC, the leader Mirèñą Zamřani ("Tiger Claw") amassed power and invaded the highlands. He is remembered as the founder of the Xuni state.
