Leaked Tribe Descriptions (Coe_Common_Room)
+46

Sorry if this is somewhere already, I couldn't find them on the forums So I figured I'd put them here for the time being. All are quoted from caspian from the official CoE discord common room. I will update them accordingly with links to the official posts as they become available. Consider this a temporary shortlist.

Keep in mind these writeups are works in progress and are not in their final version. Things may change between now and the final result

Waerd ~ Semi-Arid Desert

Similar in height to the Neran, The Waerd average about 5'7" (170cm), however they are both stronger and leaner than the more common tribe of Mann. Members of The Waerd average around 150 lbs. and after generations of exposure to the harsh sun have either become, or maintained, a darker complexion. Lighter in complexion than their cousins the Erishé, The Waerd typically have brown eyes, dark brown skin, and either dark brown, brown, or light brown hair. While less is known about The Waerd than their more social kin, one thing is well established, their cool determination and steely resolve is second to none, and only The Waerd truly matter to The Waerd.

To'resk ~ Freshwater Wetland

Standing between the Neran and Hrothi in terms of height, the To'resk average about 5'2" (157cm) and range between 125 and 150 lbs. They have medium skin with black eyes and either black or or dark-brown hair. While somewhat smaller and less impressive in stature, what really stands out about the To'resk is their striking facial features. They have furrowed brows, strong cheekbones and noses, and most noticeably, pointed, razor-sharp teeth capable of biting through the tough leathers, shells, and scales of the creatures that inhabit the wetlands. While less aggressive hunters, preferring to cultivate or raise their food, they are patient and calculating in all things they do

Yoru ~ Tundra

Due to a unique protein in the their bloodstream that acts as an anti-freeze, the Yoru are able to survive in the frigid, arctic climate of the frozen north. The protein also causes accelerated growth, and having a height of over 7' (213cm) and a weight of over 275 lbs, the Yoru are by far the most physically imposing of the Tribes of Mann. In addition to the accelerated growth, the protein causes their skin to be semi-translucent, with a pronounced blue tint, as though they're living in a constant state of near hypothermia. The Yoru also have mane-like black hair that covers their head and back, providing additional warmth as it soaks up the sun's rays. Finally, the Yoru have small, squinty amber eyes that allow them to see in the harsh light of north. Altogether, the Yoru have a uniquely fantastical look, appearing like giants among Mann.

Mydarri ~ Saltwater Mangrove

Although known descendants of the To'resk, the Mydarri are slightly taller and darker of skin than their fresh-water counterparts. They are of short-to-medium height, with an average of about 5'4" (162cm). Having marginally more muscular bodies, male Mydarri weigh an average of 150 lbs. Presumably due to their time at sea, the Mydarri have developed a slightly darker skin tone than their ancestors, with olive or tan skin, and lighter hair - ranging from brown to red. Finally, their eyes are generally various shades of green, ranging from dark marble to sparkling emerald and can look like a black hole or a field of stars. If the brilliant colors weren’t enough, they've also grown a second lens over their eyes, allowing them to see under water, and giving them a unique, aquatic look.

Kypiq ~ Broadleaf Forest

The Kypiq tribe are unquestionably the most diminutive of the tribes, but their small size and adorable demeanor belies the true value their form affords them. With an average height of about 4' (122cm) tall, and an average weight of about 60 lbs. the Kypiq are significantly lighter on their feet than the other tribes. With their medium to olive-tone skin, and their light brown, chestnut, or auburn hair, they blend in easily among the trees of the broadleaf forest. Their most striking feature, however, are their large, sugar-glider like brown eyes which only serve to amplify their squirrel-like stereotype.

Erishe ~ Arid Desert

With an average height of about 5'7" (170cm), the Erishé are similar in height to the Neran. However, with the shortage of food and water of the Arid Desert, they remain thinner and leaner than their grassland counterparts. With a slightly more muscular build, the Erishé still average around 150 lbs. and after generations of exposure to the harsh sun have either become, or maintained, a darker complexion. In general, the Erishé have either black or dark brown skin, brown eyes, and either black, dark brown, or brown hair. If asked, they would tell you their appearance is due not to the unforgiving desert sun, but to their direct lineage to Erathor, son of Daemon and Qin of the Desert.

Brudvir ~ Alpine Forest

The Brudvir are perhaps one of the most physically impressive tribes. Sharing a lineage as one of the original Proto-Neran, they look similar in appearance, however taller and more muscular in stature. Standing around 6'3" (190cm) on average, they are tied with the Janoa as the second tallest tribe behind the Yoru. Unlike the Janoa, their height comes with significant muscle on both the upper and lower body, giving them an average weight of between 225-250 lbs. They also have fairer skin than the Neran, with pinkish undertones. In addition, the Brudvir have hair and often heavy beards ranging in color from red, to strawberry blonde, to blonde. Combined with their yellow or hazel eyes and pronounced, wolf-like canines, the massive Brudvir can be an intimidating tribe to encounter.

Hrothi ~ Moutain Steppe

Sharing a lineage as Proto-Nerans the Hrothi are similar in appearance. Typically shorter than most Neran, the Hrothi have an average height of about 4'9" (145cm), and due to their propensity for more lean muscle and bulky stature weigh approximately the same, at around 125-150 lbs. The Hrothi have fair skin with hair colors that are slightly redder than Neran, ranging from chestnut, to auburn, to bright red. Their eyes are typically varying shades of brown, ranging from light to dark, and framed by their bushy, reddish-brown eyebrows and big nose.

Owem ~ Savannah

The Owem tribe is on the taller size, standing an average of 6' (185cm) tall. They have sleek, muscular legs that make them suitable for sprinting as well as distance running. Whether you want food, or don't want to become food, the only way to achieve your goal in the Savanna is to be fast. The constant vigilance, hunting, and running keeps the Owem lean at an average of about 150 - 175 lbs. They have olive or tan skin, and like many of the hunters in the Savanna have thick blonde, golden blonde, or ash blonde hair to blend into the tall grass. Natural predators, and nearly silent hunters, if you're close enough to see into an Owem's beady grey eyes, it's probably too late.

Janoa ~ Tropical Rainforest

Members of the Janoa tribe are tall and muscular in stature, standing around 6'3" (190cm) like the Brudvir, but weighing only 175 - 200 lbs. They have a longer, more developed upper body than most other tribes, attributed to an evolutionary need to reach higher branches and move around comfortably in the canopy. The Janoa generally have olive or tan skin, enabling them to blend in better with the surrounding flora, and have developed striping on their skin from pronounced Blaschko's lines. They typically have dark brown, brown, or light brown hair and imposing yellow eyes. The combination of yellow eyes and tiger stripes gives the Janoa a wild, feral appearance.

Dras ~ Swamp Wetland

Once members of the Janoa tribe, the Dras are similar in stature. Standing a bit taller then their ancestors, the Dras average about 6'5" (195cm) and at roughly 125-150 lbs. are thinner than their forbearers. Without the tall trees to climb on, they've also become gradually weaker than their kin, making them overall taller and lankier than the Janoa. The Dras have extremely pale white skin, black hair, and gaunt faces. With deep-set circles under their striking, violet colored eyes, their features often come off as foreboding and ghoulish

Neran ~ Grassland

Thanks for this.

The Waerd, Janoa, Owem, Erishe, and To'Resk all sound so awesome. I can't wait until we get the information on them.

The description of the Dras has a rather big error in it, the Dras live in 'Swamps' but the description says their are "no tall trees", but a swamp is by definition a wetlands with trees. It seems like they have confused swamp and marsh, the latter being a treeless grass based wetland like the Florida everglades.

maybe there are small and medium sized trees, but no tall trees?

Did I read that right? 6'5" and 125 lbs ...

The Dras seem to be pale white, giant, stick figures that either live in a gloomy swamp with "small" trees or are nocturnal marsh dwellers.

Either way, they seem to be ideally suited for Goth raves, but probably need to brace themselves against the wind.

Because Dleatherus just posted above, I now have a pair of images in my head:

  1. A Dras shield wall being forced across the battlefield by a light wind.
  2. A Dras shield wall formed up in order to keep them from being burned to a crisp by the mid day sun.

Kypiq ~ Broadleaf Forest

Their most striking feature, however, are their large, sugar-glider like brown eyes which only serve to amplify their squirrel-like stereotype.

This is sugar glider.

Now I'm not sure whether the Kypiq will be adorable or straight-up nightmare fuel.

The everglades most certainly has trees, hardwoods everywhere.
