All Qabarians, Al-Zamin and Al-Nisrae alike, share a strict code of ethics. Their strong sense of honor and duty dictate their interactions. Blood ties are very important to Ogres, and family loyalties are at the core of Ogre society.
The family whose name you bear is the center of your life. All of your actions and deeds reflect on the name of your family or your tribe. Malak is a derogatory word for the Al-Nisrae who are cast out of their tribe for loss of honor. Often they are found on quests to regain their lost honor, and to make a name for themselves amongst the other races of Ereth.
