Description[edit | edit source]

Items in italics are quoted directly from the game.

The line of succession in a Huana tribe is malleable to change. One trend remains constant - Mataru warriors possessing strength, leadership, and wisdom make a natural choice for rangas. The Kahanga diverged from this pattern centuries ago. Instead of choosing from accomplished fighters or hunters, the Kahanga look to the most intellectual and tactical Mataru-born.

Recent Kahanga generations have embraced this uncommon practice by favoring ciphers in their leadership. Some believe the development to be in reaction to the spread of foreign influence in the Deadfire, but the tradition stretches farther than most credit. Onekaza II, latest of the cipher rangas, seems determined to not be the last of the cipher rangas as she clings to diminishing Huana sovereignty in the region.

Rising where other tribes floundered, the Kahanga are praised for keen political maneuvering and endurance in the face of relentless trials. All that remains to be seen is how much one cipher can endure.
