Tribe Description:

Behaviour: Floris Occulites are known as savage and brutal and this is almost an understatement. They do not tolerate other Tribes and will immediately attack Occulites that venture into their territory. They are very aggressive and often deliberately make incursions into other Tribe’s land just to spark a battle. Their thoughts are usually on battle or other forms of fighting and as such, they have little time for the more mundane aspects of survival. For this, they rely heavily on Luftles to do their bidding. Luftles within a Floris Tribe are not often there by choice, but are captured from the wilds or even from another Tribe and forced into work. It is not uncommon to see Luftles sneaking away from their Tribe given the opportunity, even if the chances of actually getting away are rather slim. Floris Occulites usually communicate through a series of grunts and howls, but when stealth is more important, rely mainly on eyestalk movements and hand gestures.

Warfare: Floris Occulites enjoy and actively seek battles and confrontations in all its forms. Floris are known for their excessive brute-like force, throwing their bodies into a fight with little regard to their safety, but there are many who also relish the stealthy side of a fight. This often includes setting traps and springing ambushes, using camouflage and their knowledge of the area to help them do so effectively. Besides their bare hands, the weapon of choice for a Floris Occulite is usually something that reflects the nature of their blunt force. In most cases this is in the form of a one handed flail. The handles for these are made of short lengths of sturdy wood with a series of vines or rope that are lashed to the top of the handle. At the end of the vines or rope is a heavy stone, cradled in amongst the vines. The weapon is swung above the head, creating an eerie whirring noise that can be heard from a distance away. This whirring has been observed to create distractions or misdirections that allow the Floris Occulites to make hugely effective flanking attacks on creatures, predators and other Occulite Tribes.

Historical Notes: Floris Occulites were the third species of Occulites observed by Darwin when he saw one being chased by a Puscual. At the time he was unaware that it was a trap set by the Tribe. But Darwin’s compassion for the creature caused him to injure his finger while trying to come to the Occulite’s aid.

Tribe Description:

Behaviour: Ignis Occulites very much keep to themselves, rarely venturing outside their own territory. They do not like unannounced intruders in their lands and turn them away unless they are in need. Known for their honourable nature, this proud sub-species always conducts themselves with the utmost respect to all they interact with. This extends to other Occulite Tribes and even the creatures and predators that they hunt, never taking more than they need. Despite the harshness of the lava flats where the Ignis live, Luftles offer their help to the Tribes in exchange for a share in the food and protection from other Tribes. While the Ignis do not welcome them in like the Palaudis do, they do reward the Luftles for their work fairly. Ignis Tribes were the first of all Occulite Tribes to develop a simple language which is currently only understood by their kin. Darwin has worked hard to develop some understanding of this language, but more time is required to fully decipher it due to the speed at which they speak. Darwin believes that the word ‘borma’ means honour and that they refer to themselves as ‘Marbark’. To supplement this language and interact with other Tribes, they use a set of eyestalk movements that appear to be becoming fairly standard across most Tribes.

Warfare: Ignis Occulites demonstrate an unmatched prowess in combat. They are tactical and deliberate in their movements. Always honourable to their opponents, they often refuse to engage with lesser combatants and only particpate in gang-up attacks against dishonourable foes. They have an excellent understanding of the way that their bodies processes the heat taken in from the lava flats and can use this to their advantage in creating opportunities to strike within combat. Darwin has observed some Ignis Occuiltes actually being able to take in and convert the energy from Sungems to then expel this through their occular nerve, producing devastating ‘eye beams’. But such a feat is rare and often drains the Occulite of its energy too quickly to be effective long term. All Ignis Tribes carry polished, obsidian blades, fashioned by utilising the resources scattered throughout their lands. They do this by diverting rhyolitic flows, which are then cooled quickly to produce obsidian. This obsidian is then carefully fractured to create a sharp and accurate blade. They wield these blades with an intimidating skill and prowess that gives them the advantage in face to face combat.

Historical Notes: The Ignis Occulites were the fifth species observed by Darwin. They were first spotted, although only momentarily as Darwin and Charles Bruce tried to escape their property during the devastating bushfires of the early 1980s.

Description:

Behaviour:
Despite their appearance, the Nimbus Occulites are a mostly peaceful sub-species who keep to themselves. Not many other Tribes would dare to try and take mountainous land from them. It would be far too dangerous. The Nimbus Tribes only take what they need, but when the temperature drops and food becomes scarce, they are forced to move further away from their mountains, into other Tribes’ land, conducting raids for equipment and resources. They commincate with other Tribes through similar eyestalk movements that have been observed before. Amongst themselves though, they communicate through a series of chirps, whistles and clicks. More recently, Darwin has observed them doing what can only be described as dancing. Jumping and gliding around Lumino Trees with their feathers ruffled and large flowers in their hands. He believes that it might be some form of Tribal dance to attract Nymphlets.

Warfare:
Nimbus Occulites are traditionally a little weaker in straight hand to hand combat due to their low bone density and as such adpot a more hit and run style of fighting. They like to swoop in and attack from above before making a quick get away. Nimbus Occulites have also been documented as grabbing things in their talons and dropping them onto the enemy or even picking up the enemy themselves! Tricky and fast, the Nimbus Occulites fight with a very different style to other sub-species. The Nimbus Tribes fashion axes from Snow Gum-like tree branches and chiseled stones, held fast by tight vines or reeds. Combined with a swooping charge, these axes can deliver a powerful force that makes the very rocks themselves tremble.

Historical Notes:
Nimbus are the fourth species of Occulite that was witnessed by Darwin. Early on when Charles Bruce first took Darwin to the Ridge, Darwin found the first Nimbus Occulite Tribe doing battle there. This Tribe had the Orange-bellied Parrot colouration and Darwin kept a close eye on it from then on, regularly visiting the location.
