The Ankars are a matriarchal society. Only women are allowed to lead or hold positions of power and leadership. Men are usually slaves and prisoners of wars that are executed after serving their purpose. Any male sons are similarly sentenced to death, with the women trained from an early age to fight. The Ankars also have priests to conduct these rituals and occasionally fight on the frontline, wielding huge swords, but little armor. They’ve been in Perisno for many years and never wander past their territory located in the Tolranian forests. Orders like those of the Eagle and Wolf Knights view them as abominations that must be purged. Due to their location, they frequently clash with Tolrania and Tolranian Outlaws inhabiting the forests alongside them.
Aegea was still very young when the the Ankar matriarchy decided to crown her their rightful Queen. Due to a close friend being killed by Tolranians, she despises every Tolranian whatsoever. Fielding the greatest of all Ankar armies, she is on a personal vendetta against Tolrania and everybody despising the Ankar Matriarchy. This has already lead to several conflicts and crisis, even near defeats against an Tolranian army. Only due to Elvary intervention by Queen Arwen, was the Ankar army saved from total defeat and destruction. While the reasons for the sudden Elintoran support are unknown (possibly to gain an potential ally in Elintor's seemingly endless wars against the Tolranians), Aegea displays deep gratitude towards Queen Arwen, and tolerates Elintor's sovereignty. This is most noticeable on the equipment and armor of Aegea and her elite household troops, the Ankars Matriarch's Guard, who both wear elven helmets as a gesture of sympathy and respect. Queen Aegea is hostile towards the player at the beginning of the game, even if becoming an elven vassal or mercenary.
