The Ankars are matriarchal society and only women are allowed to lead or have positions of leadership. The men are usually slaves and prisoners of war who are killed after their uses are spent. Any male sons are also killed, and the females are trained from an early age to fight. The Ankars also have Priests to conduct these rituals and sometimes fight on the frontline, wielding huge swords but little armor. The Ankars have been in Perisno for many years and have never wandered past their territory, in the Tolranian Forests. Orders like the Order of the Eagle and the Wolf Knights think they are abnormal and need to be killed. Because of their location, they fight frequently with Tolrania and the Tolranian Outlaws inhabiting the forests.
