Ðuġunðiz χaþjiskā
(DhU-ghun-dhiz KhA-thji-skā, "Chatti Proven")

The Dugundiz Xathjiskā is a unit of proud and experienced, "trusted" and "capable" warriors of the Chatti tribe, steeled by years of constant warfare and "veterans" of numerous conflicts, mostly tribal, but some of a larger scale. These men are hardened for battle and unlikely to flee from conflict, and are trained through long experience to work in close or open formation. Their courage and morale is unrefutable as they have "proven" themselves in battle and earned the right to use their spear.

Historically, the Xathjōzez (Chatti), whose name can mean “Those who Battle” in their own language, were a turbulent tribe who often clashed with the Romans and neighboring people. It was common for their young warriors not to shave their beards or cut their hair until they killed their first opponent in battle, thoroughly demonstrating what their societal expectations were within their tribe. A typical symbol of the battle oath they take is the iron ring worn around their neck which cannot be removed until they have committed man-slaughter, and more gruesomely, self-inflicted scars, ritualized body-art performed as they stand over the body of their fallen enemy.
