For most of their history The Jórtoca were a barbarian bloodline of humans that roamed the northern lands of West Colassia. Most of the tribes were horse riding barbarians and most of the scattered clans joined the coalition army of Mordock the Destroyer during his time of conquest. After Mordock died and his empire crumbled, some of the Jórtoca returned to the roaming the wilds but most did not. The bulk of the Jórtoca settled in what is now the land of Kantoc and a lot of them interbred with the Kantoca. The Jórtoca assimilated Kantoc's agricultural ways and the Kantoca assimilated the Jórtoca's horsemanship culture. The people living in the northern regions of Land of Fumaya have a bit of Jórtoca blood in their veins, but not to the extant that Kantoc has. There is a little bit of cultural bleed into the Fumayan customs there. Full Jórtoca have roughly a 50/50 mix of earthy and airy elemental ethnic traits. While the Jórtoca and Kantoca are now so intermingled that a lot of Kantoc's population, both noble and commoner alike, are of mixed heritage, there is a clear correlation between geography and bloodline. The further north in Kantoc you go, the more Jórtoca blood and culture becomes visible.
