Luka is the bizarre creature who appears out of the forest and leads Kala on a path to find out the truth of her people and her family.
He communicates with the individual through morphing the runes that appear in his fur. He himself is a shape-shifter and is very careful never to be seen without intending it.
He is rather cunning by nature. He is a free spirit and wanders the woods alone. However, he knows to avoid the Ghast’s and the creatures further up the mountain.
His spirited nature prompts him to tease unsuspecting tribe members with playful tricks but is careful never to interfere with the Kyr too often as not to offend the Ghast’s.
Here are some of the native creatures that are sealed away behind the gate. They each have unique abilities that help with the preservation of the forest. The Sikari have never actually seen these creatures before but they have seen old drawings and books written about them by generations long past.
They are cared for by the Sikari. It is believed that centuries ago that the herd was vast and populated the whole mountain.
The Sikari prospered as a thriving civilisation, however they became careless and allowed the herd to almost be wiped out. The Sikari were then punished and the forest consumed the cities. Later the Devoid threatened to eradicate them but offered them redemption if they could rebuild the herd then they may rebuild their society.
They are worshiped because wherever they graze will flourish with natural life.
They decorate the cattle with the same red thread in their hair as a symbol of protection and kinship connecting them to the forest.
