People Of The Plains
Posted October 27, 2007on:
The plains of Sacae are home to many different tribes and peoples. Though at first glance they would seem to be one and the same, they are actually all very unique.
I’ll start with what is probably the most well known tribe of Sacae, the Lorca. They are, or were perhaps, positioned deep within the plains of Sacae. However the Lorca were destroyed in one night by an attack from the Taliver bandits. The only one to survive the attack was Lyn, who in actuality was really the princess of Caelin.
The bandits used poison to weaken the tribe, and when they were most vulernable the bandits attacked. Lyns father, the Chieftain of the Lorca, used the last of his strength to help Lyn escape. Having lost everyone she knew, Lyn promised that she would avenge her people by destroying every last one of the Taliver bandits, but that she first had to get stronger.However if you give Lyn and Wallace a level A support, Wallace tells Lyn that he hunted down the Taliver bandits and killed every last one of them. Lyn is angry at first, telling Wallace he took away her only chance of revenge, but Wallace tells her quote “If you truly wished revenge upon them, you should be happy. Hatred can be strength. On the plains, you needed that strength to survive. But left too long, hatred can twist and consume you.” . He goes on to say that he only wanted Lyn to be happy.
Next is the Kutolah Tribe. Where exactly they are located in Sacae im not sure, but based on FE6: Sword of Seals, I would say it’s safe to assume they are in the more eastern reaches of Sacae. The Kutolah tribe is a very large and proud tribe, they are also very feared.Their Chieften, the White Wolf, is said to be so strong that people fear the Kutolah tribe. In a conversation between Lyn and Rath, a member of the Kutolah tribe himself, Lyn asks if their tribe dosen’t need to worry about enemies because of their Chieften. Rath does not know the answer though, despite being the son of the White Wolf. At the age of three, he was sent to protect the world from a great evil that his tribes diviners foresaw. He has spent his whole life looking for the evil that the definers saw,but has never found it. As a result of being alone for so long, Rath is very quite and keeps things on a need-to-know basis. Infact, he keeps things on a need-to-dobasis as well, as he says he does not smile because there is no need. Rath eventually has a daughter named Sue, who is just as serious as he is. She narrowly escapes an attack from Bern, and worries greatly for her Grandfather,the White Wolf. The White Wolf is named Dayne. He is a very kind and caring person, but is a very fearsome fighter (plot-wise anyways 😉 ) . He sends Shin to find his granddaughter Sue and to protect her. Guy is another member of the Kutolah tribe, but unlike the others he travels the world to become the strongest sword-fighter in the world. He got into a bit of trouble in Caelin, however. After being too picky about his jobs, he found himself with no money, and as a result, no food. Fortunately for him, Matthew gave him meat, under the condition that guy would tell him “I owe you my life” . This eventually costs guy a new job as Matthew tells him to join Eliwoods army as a favor.
Finally there are the Sacaens of Bulgar.In FE6 there is a Sacaen named Rutger, who is also half Bern. With a personality that makes Rath look sociable, he seeks only to get revenge. Because of the fact that Bulgar lies on the border, there are many mixed bloodlines there, however, the Sacaen heritage usually stands out. For Rutger it was different. Rutgers Bern heritage stands out more then his Sacaen, as a result only he was spared. The people of Bulger were attacked and brutally killed by an onslaught by Bern. Rutger was left to live because he did not look like a Sacaen. Having seen the knight in charge of the attack, Rutger sought to extract his revenge on him. Unfortunately for Rutger, He never got the chance. In a conversation between him and Dieck, Rutger says that he found the knight, but he was dead. He also says that only Dieck could have given him the wounds he had. Dieck says hes sorry, and that he would have left him alive if he knew he was Rutgers enemy, however Rutger says that in battle, people do not have there own enemies. after thinking it over Rutger decides that only by destroying all of Bern will he be satisfied (and Dieck forcibly joins him) .
those are all the well known tribes of Sacae, but there is also a clan that exists within Sacae. The clan has no name, as such I would assume it was originally just a member from another tribe that was either exiled or left on there own, who later formed there own, albeit small, tribe. Passed down from generation to generation is a very violent bloodline. among the clan, only one can wield the blade, it is the clans destiny to fight for it. among this clan is Karel. Feared as the ominous “Sword Demon” , he is feared by all who hear of him. Karel travels Elibe in search of anyone bearing signs of strength. only because he sences great potential in Eliwood and Hector, and finds Lyn “Beautiful” , does he decide to join your army. He has eliminated all but one of his Clan, leaving only his sister Karla. Karla, unlike Karel, loathes violence and says she never wanted to learn a skill that could only be used to bring death. but when confronted by her brother Karel, she says she knew that that was the only way to get close to him, and as such has been searching the world herself, except she wanted only to hear Karels voice one more time. Karla says they have become ne different from their swords, for they have become cold and count there days by the number of people they kill.having heard this, karel is unable to fight, and is told by karla that she will wait on the “scarlet plains” for her brother to return home. scarlet plains would most likely refer to the home of the sword-using clan, given the name for their history of violence. Karla later marries bartre, and has a daughter named Fir. Fir is much like both her mother and her father; she is kind, but also seeks to perfect her strength.
Karla later dies of a disease, and in a conversation between Karel and Noah, karel says quote: “…Some things you will realize only after you have lost something else. However, by the time my foolishness had left me…it was already too late.” inFE6, karel is no longer proud of being called the sword saint, just regretful.
and that does it for the individual tribes, now time for some general facts!
•Sacaens are too proud to lie.
•The legendary hero, Hanon, is said to have come from sacae. however, hanon is referred to as a male in Blazing Sword, and a female in Sword of Seals.
•Sacaens are either nomads or myrdrimons (unless promoted).
•Lyn is a cross between a nomad and a myrdriom
•Sacaens have there own walking style, they move their hips greatly to each side as they walk (this is just as true with the men as it is with the women 😕 )
•People are easier to hunt to a Sacaen then rabbits.
