The Port-Ans, also known as Portians to Humans are a a subset-race of Men that originally inhabited a realm known as Ma-Ka Torro: a realm with notably deep blue grasses and few tree-giants. They currently inhabit the realm of men, Edafos, along with a number of other species of being.



The ancient Port-An culture dates back to their time staying within their home realm of Ma-Ka Torro. Back within such days they held a loose hierarchical tribal structure centered around their animistic religion and their honor. There were many warring tribes with slightly different customs and variations but most held a similar structure centered around the elite warrior caste. Most, if not all, males would participate in war or battle unless they were too young, old, or crippled. Thus, the society was male dominated, women would serve the men and would live only to give birth to future warriors or women who would husband warriors. Amongst the others were children, women, and shameful men. The smaller castes of the elders would hold such positions as priests or council. Such positions were highly sought after after the end of one's warring career.

The Port-Ans were a nomadic people. They followed certain beasts through the plains and would usually settle down for no longer than a season at a time. Their architecture, science, and art suffered as a result and they did not grow agriculturally. They were foragers and hunters, relying upon the bounty of the earth rather than themselves. Their trading, language, and culture was diversified and melded with other tribes with whom they would go through periods of peace and war with.

Blood feuds often ignited never-ending war between two tribes. The death of a father would be remembered by the son, and his death would be remembered by his son, and so forth. Generations would be born and die under the constant war with another tribe. Port-Ans would travel upon horseback as their main use of transportation. They would walk when necessary and the Port-Ans were so far inland that they had no need of ships or sea-faring vessels. They would ford rivers when necessary, but even carts and wagons were rare amongst them.
