The Haduns were a precursor race that gave rise the Endless.
The Haduns were similar to the Tandu, but broke off from the evolutionary line. They were noted to be dark-skinned, and dark-haired
The Haduns evolved from a race of nomadic hunter/gatherers and herdsmen that dwelt in the coldest, most northerly latitudes of the planet. They lived in the volcanic oases amid the frigid surroundings, which became villages, centers of religious observances, and major trading posts.
The Haduns were of a very different from the Tandu. Rather than settling down permanently, they maintained their hunter-gathering lifestyle. The search for food was a year-round effort.
While the Haduns were noteworthy as hunters, they were also sky-gazers, and philosophers in their own fashion. They spent the coldest nights living on stores of dried meat and frozen soups, telling stories of the constellations and the things that moved just beyond their sight in the darkness. Hunting remained the primary activity and was an important indicator of adulthood, making the Haduns resourceful, resilient, and tough.
