Background

Hunzakuts are members of infiltration units with a specialization in mountainous terrain. They are experts in alpinism, guerrilla tactics, incursions into enemy territory, camouflage, ambush attacks... the list goes on.

By dint of hunting the fearsome jaguars that inhabit the Gabqar mountains, they have developed a knack for concealment. Hunzakuts are so comfortable laying in ambush that they like to wait around a mountain pass for a patrol that might not even use it. But if an enemy patrol does pass through, they are in for a massacre: they lose half their men before they can even locate the source of the incoming fire. By the time they can coordinate a counterattack, they find there is no-one left to shoot at. The Hunzakuts have scurried away into the rocks, like lizards...

Hunzakut hail from the city of Hunza, in the Gabqar region of Bourak. They live from hunting, cultivating Nassiat, and a flourishing tourism industry of high mountain sports. The Bajram-Balk mountain range in which the frontier city is nestled is divided by the hunting areas of the Sakht Taqdeer (Urdu for “grim fate”), wild mountain panthers which only the Hunza guides have a reputation for hunting down.

A small but bustling city nestled against the Bajram-Balk mountains, Hunza is a surprisingly prosperous place. Unlike most other cities and settlements across Gabqar, Hunza has managed to break the reliance on one industry. While Nasiat farming is still a vital part of the city’s wealth, it is also something of a tourist haven. Many travel to the area to enjoy adventure tourism, rock climbing and bouldering in the foothills, paragliding and wingsuit flying, and many more such activities.

The Hunza are also famous hunters. The nearby mountains and valleys are the prowling ground of the frighteningly infamous Sakht Taqdeer and other large predators. Only the Hunza are able to reliably track and kill these apex predators, and big-game tourists pay handsomely for the opportunity to join a hunt.[1]
