Nestled in their ancestral cove, the Dawa are frequently targeted by pirates, foreign powers, and agents of the Scarlet Brotherhood, all seeking the perfect location for a secret headquarters in the southwest peninsula of the Isle of Dread. While all Olman are stealthy, the Dawa specialize in it and maintain their control of their cove through guerilla tactics and shadow warfare. Constant attacks by foreign powers make the Dawa extremely paranoid, and they attack obviously well armed parties on sight. A group that approaches with no arms or armor on display finds the tribe peaceful enough. The Dawa are proud of their skill at stealth. If their sentries are spotted, the Dawa grow disgruntled. Pretending not to notice the sentries or approaching war party pleases the Dawa chieftain greatly.
