Saual Mai Kingdom is the old ruling family and kingdom is still known to this day. They are secluded in the Hassn'Saual Mountains since the end of the Great War. They live in the high altitudes of Hassn'Saual Mountains. The have a large lung capacity to handle the high altitude. This also allows for them to breath fire for a longer period of time than their kin who may dwell in lower altitude with smaller lung capacity. They are ruled by the last surviving daughter of their old king, who, for the protection of her people, rules with an iron hand and slight paranoia. Under her rule every pass and entryway up the mountain is either guarded with ambushes or prepared with a trap to block it off. The downside of this is a largely isolationist culture and a people disconnected to what happens in the rest of the world. Being isolationist the culture is very unified and for the betterment of all of the constituents as a whole. It also serves the purpose of determining whether the neighbor is truly willing to serve the queen or is a part of a planned coup as her paranoia is well-known throughout the Kingdom. Many Fye of Saual Mai are quick to show a smile and give a friendly gesture but be deeply distrusting and plot against those around them as a byproduct. There is some suspicion within the kingdom that the queen may be under the influence of at least one Whisper and, as the culture sees no need for Moon Hounds, there is little to no way to determine if the rumors are true.

The Da'gu Cult is more tribal base in their society structured and is starting to become the largest society of Fye. Most are outcasts from the Saual Mai kingdom that hold the belief that if they are to follow their deity, the great dragon, Da'gu they will be healed and reunited with their drake-form and ties to gosamyr. This cult arose after the Great War,as Da'gu is a dark entity that, while hidden from his enemies, has leeched into the minds of the lost to seek a following to do his bidding. His "favored" are the Fye but the cult has a mix of other Oria people. He feasts on the half-breeds that are sacrificed to him. This Cult is found in the eastern side of Hassn'Saual, at the entrance of what is call the Valley of Death where it is believed that Da'gu lives there.

Fyllen: In most of the Fye societies, they have a similar ritual when dealing with outcasts. If someone is outcasted, their horns are cut, sometimes broken off and they have a rune tattooed on their body, usually shoulder, that cuts off their tie to the Gosamyr, preventing them to use gosamyr or shapeshift. Those that do not find themselves a part of the Da'gu Cult often find themselves in kingdoms composed of half-breeds and humans as the only places still willing to accept them. The exceptions become resentful and bitter over their circumstances. These wind up joining small bandit clans that utilize the knowledge of their former kingdom; between battle tactics and living off the land these bandits became shrewd marauders. They adopted much of the technology of observed humans to compensate for their lack of personal ability. They deliberately mark their armor with the same rune that was used to shame them and limit their power. Using it as a tool of fear and influence, many cultures that have been victimized have come to fear the presence of the rune. Their objective is to grow in ranks and influence to overtake the kingdom that spurned them, largely fueling the queen of Saual Mai's paranoia. They've coined the name Fyllen to insult the society that spurned them and give credit to them at the same time for creating a new kind of menace.   Xanthe, Espye:On the island of Espye, there is a wealthy providence of Fye that have gained their wealth in import and exporting, exotic goods and slave trading. Aside from the main square of their city that sits in the lower ring of the city just inside the main gate, outsiders are not welcomed further into the city. This group of Fye uphold the strict beliefs that the Fye are the superior race and the Fye blood should be pure. This belief over the course of generations have led to inbreeding and instability. It is rumored that the current queen and her father, the old king of the Saual Mai Kingdom, were a part of the same bloodline but refused to continue such practice.
