The Lhazareen are a race of peaceful shepherds from the continent of Essos. Established on Lhazar, south-east of Vaes Dothrak, their camps are frequently raided for slaves by the Dothraki, who refer to them as "Lamb Men". Mirroring the importance of shepherding in Lhazareen culture, their deity is known as the "Great Shepherd".
In the booksEdit
In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, the Lhazareen have copper skin and almond-shaped eyes, similar to the Dothraki, but more squat and flat-faced.
Lhazar was never part of the Valyrian Freehold, so unlike the Free Cities and even nearby Slaver's Bay (which was conquered by Valyria), the Lhazareen language is not derived from Valyrian. There are no examples of the Lhazareen language in the books beyond person and place names, but it is described as having a singsong quality.
The Dothraki believe the Lhazareen engage in sexual acts with their sheep, though in all fairness, outsiders also think the Dothraki engage in sexual acts with their horses.
