Yildivans and Lugals are related like modern homo sapiens and Australopithecus.
Shivaru is a wealthy, progressive, middle-aged Yildivan, experimenting with ranching as a supplement to hunting, his advice sought by others.
Cherkez is Shivaru's gnome-like chief Lugal.
Shivaru, Fereghir and Tulitur question Per on who has sent him to Cain.
Tulitur and Bokzahan return to buy guns, leaving fifty male Lugals until payment is complete.
Kochihir is an adult son of Shivaru, captured when the Cainites attack the camp.
Gumush is also captured.
So far, we have six named Yildivans and one Lugal, although the Lugals greatly outnumber the Yildivans. I have begun to note the names because they recur in the text and I do not necessarily remember who they were.
