The largos are an aquatic race of assassins from the deep oceans of the far north and the Unending Ocean - in both cases, they lived and interacted, to varying degrees, with the native quaggan. They have only recently appeared in Tyria, and mostly do not interact with other races as they prefer to remain unknown. The ocean depths of their origin have unknown "horrors" which caused them to leave.
Largos appear mostly humanoid, but with a pale blue skin and long ears. They have wing-like appendages that attach to the base of their neck which are used for swimming. These "wings" have colorful designs and bear semblance to butterfly wings. They are always seen with a mask on, and their voices sound impaired by a type of breather. They are capable of becoming invisible as they hunt their prey or scout their area. All largos seen have white hair as well, though it's unknown if this is a trait of all largos.
Largos are fighters that are trained in killing, often silently, and as such are assassins. They are secretive and do not openly share information - either about them or their techniques - and often work alone. To them, assassination is a way of life rather than a job. In fighting, largos have only been seen to use dual swords or a spear.
Their society is focused around efficient kills which they pride, and they value strength and one's ability to fight. In largos society, the better you kill, the higher status you have. In their hunts, they often remain hidden until ready to strike. When one of their targets is not killed, or is somehow resurrected, it is a great insult to the house's honor. They train younger generations through apprenticeship, apparently with a one master, one student situation.
They also have strong values of debt - if a largos owes a debt, or if one owes a largos a debt, then they are considered tied until that debt is paid and neither owes the other.
The largos are ruled by "great Houses;" the only one mentioned being the Tethyos Houses. These houses have agreed upon a set of principles for largos society to follow, which is referred to as the Tethyos Compact. The only principles which are known of this Compact contain the value of debt to be repaid, to follow it with honor and without mercy, and the phrase: track it, kill it, and bring proof.
There is also often mention of the "Concordat of the Tethyos Houses," though what this refers to is unknown. However, this is often referred to in regards to an oath of honor a largos has to another individual who has aided them before.
