Heroes of Midhgardhur
The Rys are essentially transplanted Sviar with an admixture of Vylgar and other cultures and words. Even their names are sometimes foreign-sounding to the people of the North, with names like “Ivan,” “Vladimir,” “Vladislav,” etc. (See Vylgar for traditional names).
The Rys have adopted many customs from the Vylgar and Vendar, including clothing that is brightly colored and gaudy by the standards of the North. From the Ningul, some eastern Rys have adopted a mounted warrior tradition known as the Kazaki.
