Variags are bands of ethnic H√ľornen raiders, who have plagued the northern coasts of Corwyn for centuries.

Using their famous Dragon-ships, Variags have attacked settlements of Ammarind, Cyrendar, Derianor, Marundi, Orrek, and the Barrens. Most of these evil barbarian raiders hail from the Thalar Islands and have long raid towns and villages along the northern coasts of the Myr Thalal, Dragon Sound, and the Sea of Vaas. The Variags' preferred vessels are sleek long-ships, with great dragons carved on the prows. These dragon-ships and their masters are greatly feared by northern coastal folk of Corwyn.
