I thought the Pel-mre were slarges or at least ancestral to them. Far to the west is more appropriate to the plains of Wongarissi than to where the Lascerdans lived (over the mountains to the northwest). In the few data that we have on the Slarges is:

         The humans of Tarien, to the east, know and fear these reptilian
         creatures and remember ancient, desperate wars fought by their
         ancestors against monster armies.


         They are very hostile to humans, no doubt based on their own
         memories of ancient wars.
                         Elder Secrets Book p8

The reason for the Slarge hostility to the Doraddi might be that they remember their expulsion from eden at the hands of the upstart Agimori and are seeking revenge.
