First up, Zam had an interview with MissDoomCookie, the Defiant Lore Lead, regarding the Kelari and their Lore. You can find the interview here. In the interview we get a good idea of the history of the Kelari and their motivations.
Before the Kelari fled their islands, they had been in a bloody struggle with their own people; given that many of them were happy to join up with the dragon cults. The Kelari have a truly dark past. This made it hard for the Bahmi to accept them, as the Bahmi would consider any ends acquired by such dishonorable means to be sullied and ignoble. There would be no joy in such a victory.
Take a look at the interview, there is some really excellent backstory there! Thanks to MissDoomCookie for taking the time to do this!
