The Barbs are led by the warrior Zora. The Barbs are almost feral, untamed, uncultivated. At one with the natural world around them. Content to live as their primitive ancestors did, in simple huts, living off the land, taking only what they need. Their gods are the sun and the moon, and the rain that makes their crops grow.

The Barbs are the free eco people - who know herbal lore and pursue balance with nature. They control the rivers and the forests and seem determined t o extend their rule.
