Insanity and Gods
Knowledge of the Feral Kin is limited. They are nefarious enough to simply be known as The Kin. They do not trade, parlay or even communicate except on the rare occasion with the Wildlings. Special trinkets and offerings may be made to attain safe travel in the Blackwood for a limited time. Though callous harvest is met with swift retribution. To those outside the Briar and Blackwood, the two cultures and their treatment of outsiders are often confused.
The Wildlings have many myths about the Kin which includes their very name, having originated from the Wildling tongue. There are tales they used to be another Tribe, Warriors that spent to much time in the Blackwood or had deep dealings with the denizens of the Wood. Others describe the Feral Kin as the Spirits of Ancient Wildling people or those Chosen to protect the Elder Tree as Immortals.
