Expect future modifications
This can be skipped straight to the first chapter and returned to later. Or read it all now to really catch an understanding of what's happening. Not everything here will make the appearance in the first book right now so expect some parts to be vague. This is also like my own cheat sheet to keep up with things too 😂😅
Xutashi Tribe (ZOO-TASH-E)- A feline like tribe Kai'Riba's father Ruro Chief's and rules. They have ears, tails, and even eyes of a panther feline. They are fast, flexible, cunning, and can see, hear, and smell exceptionally well. They also have large fangs (males larger than females) that helps them feed on blood which they mostly do with animals. Unfortunately their females are declined.
Their species also "mates for life" as Life mates, but was only known to mate with each other of their own species.
They live in the jungle
Chayenne Tribe (SHAY-YEEN)- Unlike Xutashi these are Canine like being, more aggressive and feral, is a tribe that are the closest to the feline tribe. Allies. They have the ears, tail, teeth, and ferociousness of a wolf. They like to fight, wrestle, and thrive on adrenaline. They mate for life.
They live in forests.
Maurea Tribe (MAR-RHEA)- known as the most craftiest, the small human-like species with the animal qualities of a Bunny. They have no fluffy tail, but all have pale skin due to living in cold rocky climate. Also have long floppy ears on head (rarely do the ears actually stand).
Hard to reach their village but sends Travelers/Traders from their kind to other tribes for trading. They live like Eskimos/Viking mixture, with fur clothing, but can thrive well in cold. They produce furs only found in mountains (that only they can access), hand crafted jewellery and bows. The only Tribe that does not mate for life.
Rhuzeche Tribe (ROO-ZE-CHE)- A group that lives in the forests and are known to live far from other tribes. With large, wide horns on their head and long, pointed ears. Males are decreasing meaning more females. Peaceful, calm creatures, they would rather talk peace rather than cause trouble and keep to themselves.
Kikera Tribe (KEEK-ERA)- A tribe that lives in a savanna like biome (the largest biome) in this part of the Lands in Syrira. They are completely Savage. Because of the lies as betrayal of another tribe, the Jamati Tribe.
Due to a terrible betrayal of their "allies", known as the Dark Times, these once peaceful feline Cheetah-like creatures (with very dark faded spots on their skin except for Chief's) are now mindless... Well, animals. Feral. These creatures will wreck havoc to any other Tribe species out of anger and anguish. They tend to stay in their territory... But for those who enter do not usually leave unscathed
Jamati Tribe (YA-MAUT-EE)- A strong yet cruel, selfish race, the Jamati are ugly and crude creatures that resemble the features of a lizard with scales, tail, and reptilian features. Does not mate and live near water, live filthily and wear bones of animals. Sheds their own skin similar to snakes.
Once the allies to the Kikera and lowered their guard they raided the poor Kikera, killing and raping their females even children was not spared. Leaving only the males.

Only attacks those who wanders near it's territory and mostly resides in caves in the snowy mountains of Syriya.
Anak (Ah-Nahk)- The largest deer in the snowy mountains, larger than a moose with antlers to put theirs to shame. Passive creatures with either white, grey, or silver fur to keep them warm. Hunted by the Maurea but only occasionally, these beast are hard to find in the wilderness and only the most experience Hunters can track these creatures and successfully kill them. Females are smaller and are seen more frequently.
(Closest resemblance is the Megaloceros)
Dyanis (Dye-A-Nis)- A small, colorful species of bird that resides in the jungle. They mostly sing at dawn and dusk, and are the size of a cat.
Nahgua (Na-Gwah)- A large feline predator (similar to the mixture of a black panther and a tiger) as long as large truck (not counting the tail) and taller than an average person. With razor sharp claws and fangs, and a knack for climbing in the largest trees, they tend to live in the deepest part of the jungles and away from any Tribe. Beware entering it's territory, because foolish unwary travelers were known to be hunted and never return.

Her voice was able to convince the most strongest mind into suicide. She released strong creatures to spread fear and blood. She was locked away by the strongest God Keranni to keep her from doing further harm like the scrolls say today. And it's rumored that there is a crack in her prison to allow a few of her whispers to escape.
Kerrani- One of the oldest and powerful Goddess is the Goddess of Wisdom and Knowledge. Nothing supposedly slides by her nor done without reason. Many worship her for hope and, of course, wisdom for trouble spots in life. Form unknown. Usually the largest moon of the three moons.

The kindest of any, who even had to adopt an abandoned human baby from the Human world. This part is known to be just a story since there is little information on it. But all that was known was little girl was named Sooda, and is sometimes believed to be good luck.
