Kossith is the name of the culture of the humanoid horned race that predates the Qun. It is unknown if the term refers to the one specific race or a group of races, as little is known about the kossith. Some or all of the kossith converted to the teachings of the Qun sometime before 6:30 Storm and are since then known as Qunari.
At -410 Ancient a group of kossith landed in the southern Korcari Wilds and established a colony. This group is believed to have been captured by darkspawn during the First Blight; the darkspawn then turned some of the females into broodmothers, and those in turn gave rise to the first appearance of Ogres in Thedas.
A millenium after this contact, the Qunari, believed to be once part of kossith culture, landed on Par Vollen in 6:30 Storm. It is said the Qunari came from an eastern land across the Northern Ocean, which was likely the land of kossith as well.
Usage of the term Edit
The term is an antiquated technical name and it is not widely known throughout Thedas or even amongst the Qunari. It is mostly only known by scholarly circles, tamassrans and few members of the Qunari priesthood. The Qunari do not recognize the concept of the Kossith and to almost everyone in Thedas, the horned race is just "Qunari" or "Tal-Vashoth", respectively.
- It appears that kossith had names, unlike the Qunari which are referred by their title.
- Codex entry: The Qun states than an ashkaari would travel to several nations and empires, which could indicate that kossith were more than one people; it is also possible the codex entry is a legend.
