the Five secret houses of Bero also known as the Hounds of Baumya were the five traditional clans of the Men of the misty mountains


It is unknown if the Term five houses of Beor relates to the ancient Adan Chieftain Beor of the House of Marach.In Anglo-Saxon béor means strong drink, beer or mead.Béor could have been the name of a common father or ancestor of the five houses, his name could be related to the ritual intoxication of the berserk.

The Names of the five Houses seem to be derived from Gothic Vodsgairu or Anthargairu, Airiscina, Berowulf, Answini and Tagrinnia.Another possibility could be that their names are untranslated forms from an ancient adanic language.
