Simvan Monster Riders
DeeBees who are semi-nomadic and ride on giant fire beetles. They have ongoing tensions with the North American Indians, not least over their cannibalistic practises. They consume their own dead, seeing them as just meat.
However, they have their own code of ethics and semi-nobles. They respect people who show strength and stand up to them. They have a natural affinity with wildlife and can bond to any exotic mount through their empathic connection and their learned abilities to tame animals and monsters.
