On Dark Waters
Known as the Wolf-Men and the Great Herders, Clan Tyris are a nomadic clan that has recently laid claim to and settled in the plains of the Valley of Mankind. The Clan is led by the wolf-lord Rault Tyris. As powerful nomadic traders and rangers Clan Tyris bid for and secured the allegiance of many smaller human tribes and is the defacto leading power in what is the new Kingdom of Mankind. They rule from the city of Cairn. They are blood enemies and rivals of Clan Holtsted.
All families that bear the name of Clan Tyris participate in the art of Animal Husbandry. By tradition all members of the clan breed and care for wolves throughout their lives starting as young children. The wolves serve as guardians, companions, and idols for all members of the clan and are deemed sacred. Traditionally other herd animals would also be tended to be the member of Clan Tyris and used for food, tool-making, transport, and other resources. With the formation of the Kingdom of Mankind and the founding of Cairn, Clan Tyris has become more reliant on the acts and efforts of other clans to raise livestock and farm. The tradition of raising a wolf for each member of the clan has also began to wane with the current predominating practice being to raise a wolf per branch and offshoot of the families that comprise the clan.
