Cynarans are an ancient human ethnic group that once populated the Isle of Cynara, and are now a significant minority of the kingdom of Cyrendar.

The Cynarans were an offshoot of the Vaas people, and had a well-deserved reputation as fierce fighters and great sailors. For centuries, the Cynarans sailed from their island, raiding coastal regions along the Sea of Vaas and the Iron Sea. The competing Cynaran tribes were finally united under one banner in the year 325/3, by King Endacil of House Redmond. Under his rulership, the Cynarans founded Urland; one of the earliest human kingdoms on Corwyn. Later, under King Narmacil, Urland was destroyed by the invading Iskari.

Eventually, the kingdom of Urland was defeated by the Iskari invaders led by Ilnavel Cyrenäe, who landed on the shores of Westvale Island in 1170/3. After the Cynarans were defeated in the Forty-Years War, their entire population was assimilated into the ruling Iskari culture and their territory became part of the modern-day kingdom of Cyrendar.
