The Wanderers

Known as the wandering folk, they are a people who worship nature spirits and travel with their herds of beasts. They believe that their beasts have souls, just like they do and take great care of the creatures in their care. When one is slaughtered for food, nothing goes to waste. They have two half-permanent settlements in north Ukan which they travel between depending on season.
