Ancient times Edit
When the Alamarri first passed into Ferelden from the distant west, some moved into the swampy forest vastness and the tundra beyond it to the south now known as the Korcari Wilds. These folk became known as the Chasind Wilders, a strange twisted people plagued by dark desires.
War with the Tevinter Imperium Edit
As one people, the Alamarri consisting of Clayne, Chasind, and Avvars, have fought with the Tevinters over the control of the land that would later come to be known as Ferelden. The Chasind weren't as sucessful in battling the Magisters as Avvars. The Imperium, weakened by the Blight, nearly fell to the barbarians led by Andraste and the armies of Avvarian Maferath and the elven slaves led by Shartan. However, when the Tevinters neared an anihilation, Maferath made a deal with the Magisters who retained part of their nation. Andraste was killed as a result of the deal, and the Alamari tribe of Avvars were given the land that makes today's Ferelden.
Civil wars and schism Edit
Several centuries after they first came to Ferelden, a great civil war rose among the tribes that caused one large faction to break away from the Alamarri. The rebels eventually became known as the Avvarian hillsmen. Though it was not the first civil war, as throughout their history the tribes fought witch each other. The Avvars didn't fully separate from the Alamarri until at least after the First Blight, as the Alamarri leader leading the Exalted Marches by the name of Maferath was an Avvar.  The Avvars took the hills as their land, and the remaining Alamarri stayed in the Fereldan Valley and became known as "the lowlanders" to the Avvars.
The teyrns Edit
Since then powerful warlords known as "banns" led the Alamarri in near constant struggle with their fellow tribes, as each bann sought to widen his territory and influence.
During the second Blight, Hafter, the first bann to be named teyrn, united the Alamarri tribes in order to drive back the darkspawn. After the Blight, the Alamarri leader finally ended the war with the Chasind Wilders over the control of Fereldan Valley.  Since then, the Chasind never left the swamps, nor did the Alamarri enter them.
Alamarri and mabari Edit
The foreigners visiting Ferelden often remark that it smells of wet dogs. Whether that is true or not, one thing cannot be denied - Ferelden and dogs go together. According to Fenris, the mabari bred by mages decided to stay on occupied lands of the Alamarri after the Tevinters were ultimately driven back. Ever since then, the mabari have a strong presence in Fereldan lands. Many of the Alamarri tribes kept their own mabari, and since then the tradition was maintained by the Fereldan nobles.
