History

Classic Antiquity

As early as the fall of Great Levantia, the vast majority of the Pohranken tribes unified under a single banner and a single name. The tribal confederacy is most commonly referred to as the Siahr Vand after the warrior Zendru Vandyndhur. She was not the strongest warrior by any means, which stood out in one of the most brutal tribes of Diamavya, but she created a philosophy that would pioneer the tribe to become magnitudes stronger than all than all the other tribes in Pohrank. Though still known as Zendrism in Diamavyan, the philosophy would come to be known as pragmatic pacifism internationally.

Much of her tribe was doubtful of her philosophy, but with the neighbouring Kolnik tribe seemingly preparing for another war, they were willing to trust her idea. Zendru marched to the Kolnik border alongside her tribes strongest warriors should conflict arise. She met with the Kolnik chief and told him that another war would leave both tribes vulnerable to attack from the north, who could use such as war to attack the weak victor. After agreeing on this, she convinced the Kolnik chief that despite their differences, peace was a far better option than yet another war over territory they would be better off sharing. Despite the differences these tribes had, the chief couldn't deny the strength the tribes would have if they united. Out of respect for Zendru's ability to cooperate with his tribe, the Kolnik united with Zendru's tribe and become the Siahr Vand. The union would go on to use Zendru's philosophy with tribes that were willing to cooperate, but the Kolnik chief would not hesitate to use violence with more brutal tribes. Come the year 502 AD with the collapse of Great Levantia, Siahr Vand had become one of, and debatably the biggest union on the Levantine continent.

Below is an animated map of the major territorial changes in the Tribal Confederacy of Siahr Vand. The territorial changes shown took place from 458 AD to 512 AD. In this time Siahr Vand was led by Zendru Vandyndhur at age 19 458 AD, Netalihya Van-Kolnik at age 16 in 477 AD, and Anna Van-Savihrnkiah at age 21 in 504 AD. Center

Though the eventual colonial takeover of Diamavya by the Lacronitine Empire would lead to the end of Siahr Vand, its legacy along with Zendrism would continue to be used as a symbol of Pohranken unity, and would again be used to encourage Pohranken citizens to join the Pohrank Revolution in 1937.
