Daihexi (PK /tai̯xeʃi/), fullname Daihexi dzul ngoi (PK /tai̯xeʃi tsul ŋoi̯/ for Three Islands), is a term denoting the westernmost group of islands of Borea composed mainly of three main bodies: Teng, the northernmost island, Makwau, the second island, and Abwaxa, the southernmost island. For a long time, only Teng and Makwau were included in "Daihexi", with Abwaxa only appearing after its discovery and colonization.

The Kwoudangese were the first to populate the islands and the first to grow grains and to develop cities, along the Kwoudang Coast, c. 2500 BEA. They are spread over both western Teng and western Makwau. Although the majority of them speaks a Kwoudangese language, many others speak languages from different families altogether, suggesting that the initial colonization of the islands was made in successive waves from the northern peninsula, where Kwoudangese languages still exist. Such non-Kwoudangese languages are found mainly in south-western Makwau.
The Pelic and the Sâtoun people are tightly related and are sometimes referred to as the Pel-Sâtoun people. The Sâtoun people crossed westward from the peninsula north of Arces after the river-dwellers developped agriculture and settled on Teng's mediterranean side c. 3000 BEA. Pressure from the local Kwoudangese people pushed them south to the point of crossing to Makwau's swamp regions. There, they extermined their rivals (details are unclear) and spread all the way to the south of the island, which colonization was complete c. 1200 BEA.
The Sâtoun people who didn't cross over to Makwau and who stayed in eastern Teng gradually mixed with the Kwoudangese population to form what is called the Pelic people. Some Sâtoun people didn't mix however and still live on Teng on the southern peninsula.
The Maghan people are the inhabitants of Abwaxa. They long remained isolated even from the other Maghan in the area, on Sho and Ahi, and only came into contact with outside people through Kwoudangese exploration and colonization. They put up a lot of resistance against the invaders, eventually gaining enough strength and support to have fully independent Maghan states on their island.
