The Oncan people are one of the many cultural groups conquered by the Saigar Khuvanate but allowed to retain their cultural independence. The Oncan culture first appeared around 300 H.D. and quickly gave rise to a series of great city states which formed a loose alliance, though occasionally warred with each other off and on.
Each city state was ruled by a combination of military might and religious leadership, the Oncans practicing the first forms of Tulanism, worshipping above all else the Child of Flame, and making offerings to the lesser spirits of the sky, underworld, water, and wind.
The Oncans built vast stone cities with astounding architecture, engineering, and design and were a wealthy agricultural people. They were eventually conquered during the reign of Hadis-Khuvan Khula and incorporated into the Empire.
Oncan Culture TodayEdit
Today, the Oncans still retain much of their cultural heritage, including their language (Oncan) and their writing system (Hozatul), along with their Tulanite faith, which has grown to be a widely popular religion, especially among the Zagari and Ushalese people.
Oncans are generally considered a fiercely independent, though simultaneously loyal people, who value personal freedom above all else. They tend to be ambitious, clever, and haughty. In addition, they tend to exhibit a sense of superiority towards the Tairese due to an old history of rivalry between the two groups.
