 Saka - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Mainstream historians and linguists consider Sakas as speakers of northern sub-branch of the Iranian branch of the Indo-Iranian family of the Indo-European languages.
The Saka Era is used by the Indian national calendar, a few other Hindu calendars, and the Cambodian Buddhist calendar—its year zero begins near the vernal equinox of 78.
Paul Pezon supports this theory, claiming that the Saka Scythians and the seemingly related Cimmerians were ultimately ancestors to the Celts and Germans, and that the Germans fled the Baltic area when it was flooded by the rising sea level after the Ice age.

 The Saka Nomenclature, A Persian appraisal - (The Circle of Ancient Iranian Studies - CAIS)
It is possible that the designation of the Saka as "Saka of the marshes" and "Saka of the plains" in Egyptian hieroglyphs was framed exclusively in reference to the presence of the Saka force on the Egyptian landscape which, according to Herodotus, was flat and full of swamps (II: 22).
The Saka Tigraxauda are depicted as inhabiting the eastern littoral of the Caspian Sea between Hyrcania and Chorasmia [present-day Turkmenistan].

Moreover, traditional Brahmanical dress consisting of the sari and dhoti are visibly different in appearance and style from the traditional uchkin, turban, kurta pajamas, jodhpurs, salwar kammeez and ghagra worn by the Mughal-Saka populations in the north and west.
The Sakas of the northwest did not accept the supremacy of the Brahmins, did not practise the chaturvarna caste system advocated by their "law givers" like Manu, had their own Saka priests (Magas), and mainly patronized Buddhism mixed with their own religion (sun-worship) prior to 9th century AD.
Saka priests were known as "Magas" (Sun priests who prayed to the sun for bountiful harvests) who, along with Buddhist masters of Sakasthan, found themselves out of work when Buddhism and its institutions declined during 8-10th century.

Saka migrations were not led by a single king, but were probably gradual movements of acephalous groups to Jibin, a region apparently corresponding to Gandhara or to northwestern India in general.
Saka support of Buddhism did not preclude their patronage of other religious traditions or imply that their old beliefs were abandoned.
Concurrent with their impact in India, migrations of the Sakas during the last two centuries BCE and the Kushans in first century CE from Central Asia to northwestern India eventually led to the transmission of Buddhism in the other direction to Central Asia and East Asia.

In Siam the game of backgammon is known as saka, and is played upon a board, represented in Figure 7 with 2 dice.
The dice are not thrown directly with the hand, but are loaded into a tube (krabok) of ivory, about 3 inches in length (Figure 8), called krabok saka, and shot obliquely through another cylinder of ivory, 2½ inches high (Figure 9), called by the same name, placed upon the board.
These implements correspond with the Roman fritillus or dicebox, and the pyrgus, the latter being defined as "a little wooden tower on the side of a gaming board, hollow, and having steps inside, through which the dice were thrown upon the board.

 ORIGIN OF THE SAKA RACES - Chapter 3 of `Collapse of the Brahmanist Empire in South Asia', by Khshatrapa Gandasa. On ...   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Historians derive "Jat" fom "Gatae", "Ahir" from "Avar", "Saka" from "Scythii", "Gujjar" from "Khazar", "Thakur" from "Tukharian", "Saurashtra" from "Saura Matii" or "Sarmatians", "Sessodia" (a Rajput clan) from "Sassanian", "Madra" from "Medes", "Trigartta" from "Tyri Getae" and "Sulika" from "Seleucids".
The progenitor of the Sakas picked them up and hence the Saka race began its long history of conquering lands, releasing its bounties and enjoying the fruits of their labor (the cup has a ceremonial-spiritual-festive symbolism).
By means of the dogma of jati (professional caste) the Brahmins divided and destroyed the unity of the Saka peoples, pitting brother against brother and son against father.

The Saka who remained in Media became a part of the kingdom and in Achaemenian times their lands in Jaxartes River (Syr Darya) basin and in the Balkans belonged to the empire, while contingents of them were deployed in Egypt.
I began with this long description of the Saka to support the point that Saka were present on the Iranians scene for a long time and they were spread all over the place.
The connection between the Saka and the place-names Sakiz and Sakastan at two opposite ends of Iran suggests the likelihood of the existence of other Saka place names in the areas where the Saka are known to have inhabited.

 Character: Saka Naalkavar
Saka is built like a stout barrel, broad and muscular even for a dwarf.
Saka and her little (literally; she's far bulkier than he is) brother Mogoom come from a clan of mountain dwarves found in an out of the way part of the Rakers; the name Naalkavar is dwarvish for 'Hunger Mountain' and they seem a little more wild than the average dwarf.
Mogoom apparently talked Saka into going looking for adventure, and they started out by exploring deeper and deeper tunnels until, in Mogoom's words, they were forced to make a tactical retreat.
