The Dogmen, while ostensibly part of the Hansard military, are in effect, autonomous. Patrolling the frontier regions, the Dogmen effectively serve simultaneously as intelligence agents, policemen, and frontier explorers. They will frequently clash with the Hansard, and are sometimes called upon by whalers and sealers for assistance.
Their name comes from the fact that in the colder regions of Kamchak, it became necessary to travel by dog instead of by horse. Even though they are frequently mounted when weather permits, the name stuck, supposedly due to their “dogged” persistence in completing their tasks.
