The drifters are a nomadic group of horse-breeders who reside in the grasslands of Pasyvier in Korias, Tysan. They are the best horse trainers in Athera and are distantly related to the High Kings who ruled before the rebellion, which explains their clan-like speech patterns and the townsmens' attitude towards them.[1]
