Tribal History:

Once the Blood Wings were the warband of the Bright Eagle tribe of the region. With the failure of their leader to produce a female heir the tribe fell apart and the militant Blood Wings sought and took over of a portion of the lands once known to be Bright Eagle with the blessings of the Mortal Voice in Myleah they were given Cloudforest and the surrounding lands.

Blood Wings had existed before its refounding by Emanaia and Salbellis but never in the form it would take. They wouldn't just make a temporary warband but a permanent one. The Blood Wings wouldn't just be guards on the borderlands and chase raiders when the season called for it. They take the fight to those that would violate Bright Eagle lands and Jechran itself. Their first battle was no more than seven teenage warrioresses and in a surprise move engaged a gnomish raiding group that trespassed into a Bright Eagle orchard. It is said it was over before it started. As arrows flew from all directions cutting down the raiders. From that moment and over the next seven generations the Blood Wings maintained their grip and repelled raiders from Tyedu and Galdos; at times aided other tribes that called upon them to strike back against those that raided them. Sometimes even going into Tyedu itself to send the message and remind them to stay on their lands.

In the seventh generation of the Blood Wings, the Blue Foxes and their allies The Circle launched a series of attacks and at Thick Trees on the border of Jechran raided the rear encampment. In a series of counter-attacks by the Blood Wings against the great combined forces were successful in the beginning. At Frozen Creek, along the extreme northern border, the Blood Wings were wiped out. What few that did survive sought out other tribes to join.
