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 participate 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.
