Soomro Kshatriya Warriors Unlike many other converts to Islam in Northern India, while the Sumra, or Soomro, Dynasty does descend from both local Sindhi and Arab bloodlines it is far more with their native ancestors that these Rajputs look to. Even as the ruling Maliks are Ismaili Muslims, the traditions of their Hindi past linger strongly. And for a history so well woven in the fabric of India’s own, it is no surprise that this is the case. Amongst the Rajputs who remain Hindu, belief is held that each Kshatriya clan descends from one of three lineages: the Agnivanshi borne from the Hindu God of Fire Agni, the Suryavanshi borne from Surya the Hindu God of the Sun, and the Chandravanshi borne from Chandra, the Moon God. It is the blood of Agni that is thought to have flowed through the lineage of the Sumra, and even as many convert to Islam that fiery passion of the Agnivanshi Rajputs remains. Yet the Soomro are of India, and India has never let an invader come and take away without giving unto the land and its people. Much of their Arabian ancestor’s traditions are not unfamiliar to the Rajputs, with much being admired: The skill and pride in sword and horsemanship, the chivalrous nature of warfare, and the respect to swift speed even with the use of armor. The warriors of the Soomro cannot claim exclusively an Arabian or a Rajput loyalty to the way they fight – their armor is a mixture of Arab mail, Indian scale, and Iranian lamellar, their swords inspired by the long-narrow blades of the ancient Umayyad invaders, and their helmets bought often from traveling Arab merchants. In battle they serve as prized medium infantry, throwing their heavy javelins before engaging foes however they see fit. Whether at a frontal attack, moving swiftly to strike an unprotected side, or serving to anchor the flanks of their own ranks, these honored Kshatriya will earn their respect of so proud a Martial ancestry as their own.
