The Desert Lion Tribe is a band of Southern barbarians currently led by Largo the Black Lion, though due to his current absence, Largo's uncle, Brolo, is in charge. Amazing warriors and simhata tamers, they are apparently descendants of one of Admiral Arcadi's most elite military units (and most favored, some say). They currently inhabit the Fortress of the Black Lion and the Desert Monastery. For more details on Largo's relation to the Desert Lion Tribe, see Largo's Backstory and Red Sky at Morning, Session Four, The Gates of Heaven and the Sands of Time.
Each member of the tribe is raised to be a warrior above all things. Any given tribe member has a minimum of Melee or Martial Arts 3, War 2, Ride 2, and either Survival 2 or Survival: Desert 3. Elders and shaman also have Occult 2, Lore 1, and Medicine 2. All Desert Lions speak both Pridetongue and Flametongue.
As a military unit, the Desert Lion Tribe has Magnitude 3, Morale 2, Might 0(1?), and Drill 2. If led directly by Largo, their Drill and Morale are both increased to 3.
