The Northern GrassWings live on an island west of the Ice Kingdom. The island is unknown to the other tribes of Pyrrhia. The island entirely steppe/tundra, and this environment has affected the GrassWings' evolutionary history, culture, and society greatly.
Northern GrassWings range from dark yellow to light green in color. They have a blade-like tail which is used for cutting down especially tall grass. They have relatively blunt claws. They have forward-facing horns. Their scales are thick, and armor-like so that they can withstand rams from grazing animals. They are large and sturdily built, which allows them to survive the cold of their island.
Northern GrassWings can withstand cold temperatures as well as heavy impact. They can also survive extended periods of time without water. If they go without meat or animal products for too long, their digestive system will strengthen so that they can digest grass. They have keen eyesight.
Different clans of Northern GrassWings live differently. Most herd grazing animals, but some only hunt them. They make musical instruments out of their prey or butchered livestock, including bone flutes and pelt drums. Northern GrassWings live in clans, those that herd livestock leading their animals to grazing pastures. Some Northern GrassWings keep birds of prey and foxes as pets.
The khan/chanyu of the Northern GrassWings is Steppe.
The Southern GrassWings live on an island southwest of the Northern GrassWings', also unbeknownst to the mainland of Pyrrhia. Their island is a vast savannah, and their habitat has had a great effect on their evolutionary history and culture.
Southern GrassWings are similar to their Northern neighbors in terms of physical attributes. The main difference is that the Southern GrassWings are smaller and more streamlined. Their tail blades are also sharper than their neighbors' to the north.
Southern GrassWings are also similar to Northern GrassWings when it comes to abilities. They cannot withstand cold temperatures as well as their sister tribe, nor can they go as long without water. Their scales are somewhat fire-resistant
Unlike their sister tribe, Southern GrassWings live in families rather than larger clans. They do not herd grazing animals, only hunting them. They also make musical instruments out of their prey.
The chief of the Southern GrassWings is Gazelle.
