Thracian is the dominant language spoken in the Valley of Thrace. Due to the historic power of the New Kalikán Empire, it is prevalent in legal documents of the 2500's as it was the official language of the empire and spoken by the viceroys of the King-Emperor of Thrace. Thracian loanwords for governance and skycraft are frequent in the languages of the Pallathantic. Thracian is a Jaggudornish language descending through the Thwarrish branch of the Gwenyan Languages.
