Condor and Vulture tribals often seem to be similar- their totems seem to be quite similar, but Condors are more Eorzean than the Meracydian namesake of their sister tribe. The Bloodfeathers did not have much interaction with other tribes, partly due to isolation, and partly because of their zealous nature. They seek to emulate their totem as much as they can, prizing traits that exemplify similarity to their totem.
This is what, inherently, makes Bloodfeathers very different in how they choose their Nunh. Females often compete intrasexually for the right to mate. Their combat prowess, flexibility, strength, endurance, and ability (magical and/or physical) are major attributes that contribute to the female pecking order. Males have their physical skills considered second to their ability to child rear. Over generations, males are societally pressured to do camp chores such as cooking, child care, etc. Emotional labor also falls to males, who often act as the mediator between huntress fights, preventing conflict escalating to serious injury. This serious empathy also comes with a plague of problems, addressed later. A Nunh exemplifies this “nest-rearing” trait, and a fight between a Tia and Nunh is usually for show only. If the Tia loses, there are cases where tribe huntresses and elders overrule and depose the old Nunh. An outside who beats the Nunh may also be killed for trying to invade the nest and having none of the traits their society bred for a male to have.

Aspects That Stand Out:
Many cannot pronounce the hisses in standard Miqo'te language, they lack the ability to make catlike sounds
Herbs that alter sex hormones are common, feminizing males and masculating females
Outside of tribal lands, many hide their tribal traditions, due to past backlash due to many seeing it as “disgusting”

Bloodfeathers remain sexually dimorphic, with males larger than females. Surprisingly, condors have a similar dimorphism, and are the largest of their kind. Seeking to emulate their kingly size, Bloodfeathers have increased in average size since their founding. Some of their most surprising changes were their sharper senses of smell and digestive system. Compared to other tribes, Bloodfeathers have stronger versions of both, able to sniff out decaying carcasses as well as eat them safely. Stiffer tails are a result from a mutation that weakened tail muscles governing lateral motion, making Bloodfeathers' tails less likely to do sweeping motions. And, purring noises are rendered impossible due to a loss of rigidity in the larynx. The other half that causes their inability to properly pronounce normal Miqo'te vocalizations is simply cultural.
Just by nature of being an isolated clan with very little influx of members, it's a given that some traits are more often seen than others. This can be Ginger-colored hair as well as heterochromia. Skin color always tended to run a gamut between all shades, a medium brown tone being most common, but drift did not remove dark or white tones from the range of skin colors. However, after the Calamity, many members lost the tans that darkened their skin, shifting average tone of skin to a lighter color. Constant cloud cover and a need to stay indoors to be safely warm is what keeps many from developing tans again.
Female-identifying members are notably much more muscled and will sport short hairstyles. They have much more scarification tattoos as well as warpaint, signifying their accomplishments and standing within the tribe. Traditionally, face, shoulders, forearms, and leg flanks were scarified, with any of aforementioned regions being painted. With Coerthas' biting cold, traditional fighting and gatherings have been adapted to be performed indoors or in deep summer, when a huntress can safely brave the weather to show off her tattoos and paints during ritual. Extensive tattoos are seen as a sign of inner strength and tolerance, and males are not really expected to get extensive scarification tattoos, opting for more complex paint markings. Extensive paint is masculine, while scars are more feminine in their culture.

Creation Legend
New Land, No Totem
The Condor clan has its own take on how their totem came to them. When Miqo’te spread into Eorzea, the T tribe settled into Coerthas. Before the Calamity turned it into the tundra it is today, it was a lush highland area, sporting a few different types of prey and predator as well as a bounty of different herbs and edible plants. Being hunters, the summer and fall that the T tribe had arrived in were productive. Yet, they did not find an animal who decided to become their guide in the lands, a protector and patriarch. The spiritual leaders were at a loss, but they were thriving.

Then the winter struck, suddenly and with blizzard after blizzard. Prey froze to death, and huntresses were at a loss. The bounty of their new home stopped, with no way to pass the snowed-in mountain paths. Starvation times began as the winter deepened, prey hiding from the bitter cold. Some froze, others grew weak with hunger. And yet, the only animals that seemed to be thriving were the condors of the region, picking at the frozen corpses until they were too fat to fly. It infuriated the huntresses, to see the buff and blue birds leisurely picking at corpses.
“How dare you!” A huntress shouted at a group picking at a sheep for the third day in a row, “We work to get our food, and you simply sit and eat the dead!”
The birds stopped their feasting, looking at the huntress with glassy eyes. Then all then cackled in unison. “Girl,” one condor began, “You do not know the laws of the land. We thrive because we do what we must to survive. You die because you cling to what worked for you in a land that is not yours now.”
While the huntresses were still at a loss for words, the condor tossed a leg of the sheep towards them, relatively untouched by scavengers. Gingerly, the woman who led the outburst picked it up, taking it to the fires. It was the first substantial meal many of the clan had.
The next day, the huntresses sought out the condors, and fell prostrate before them. “Birds, we have wronged you. Help us survive in this land and we shall revere you.”

OOC information for YOU

Below is useful tidbits should you ever be interested in trying to attack/spar with Kiri. Please note that I am very open to gore and violence and am not beyond having my character sport an injury for days to weeks on end. However! Dismemberment, permanent damage, and even death needs to be spoken about prior in vivid detail/discussion before anything will ever occur IC.
Teir 1 Combat: An old Tier combat system from Cheetah/Yahoo Chat days. This system is something I grew up using and enjoy thoroughly. This system uses detailed paragraphs (I don't expect 4+ paragraphs) to explain actions that are being placed in combat. It uses a roll system which the person playing the attack will roll and the defender will need to roll higher to defend. Critical hits are welcomed in this system and often are considered if the difference between rolls are over 700 (using ingame /random rolls)
Designated Personal Systems: Everyone has their own system for group combat RP which they themselves made or they made for their Free Company. I am open to discovering, learning, and uses all kinds!
Slider Scale: While I do not mind a slider scale of abilities, I would very much like to limit my usage of this system in any roleplay.
Freeform/Honor System: I will only acknowledge the honor system with people I trust or know won't be literal jerks in RP. I will often request the basic roll system (See t1) for fights with people I do not truly know but am willing to Freeform/Honor system it if you can prove you are not going to just Naruto/Bleach up the fight as well as avoid EVERYTHING thrown at you, even within less then an inch of the attack.

OOC NOTES

OOC INFORMATION

Player Note
I have a very clear distinction when it comes to OOC/IC. They must remain separate at all times if we are to RP together, especially on an extended basis and I reserve the right to end interactions should this be impeded upon. I've been burnt heavily by people mistaking IC care and OOC friendship and attention with romantic regard and honestly I don't wish to go through another such debacle once more. If my character dislikes yours that does not mean I hold the same sentiment. If my character loves yours that does not translate to me feeling the same for you, though I might feel a platonic equivalent. I am not my characters and they are not me. Respect this and we shall get along famously.
Personal RP Limits
I don't have very many hardcore limits honestly as I feel consequences must be adhered to when RPing any character regardless of whom they might be. However there are a few exceptions to this and they are as follows.
I will play Almost anything that isn't described below.
I won't play Death, Rape, Maiming, ERP only Plots. I don't mind romance but it needs to be earned and respected. Do not try and force your character on to mine. If I feel this is the case I will quickly end the RP and speak with you OOCly to either correct the issue or end the RP connection between the two in a faithful manner both parties can agree upon.
Disclaimer
Little Tidbits.
If you're ever uncomfortable, tell me! I don't bite! I can get pretty into RPing out consequences however and while I do my best to make sure permission is had and everyone is comfortable I'm not perfect. If you have a problem speak up.
This is a broad statement for all my characters, but I have a hard limit of at least two months before I'll allow my character to enter a relationship. A good friend mentioned their own rule regarding this and I greatly respected the idea of it, so I'll be putting it into practice myself. I've been burned far too many times by hasty RP relationships and want to make it clear from the get go so there is no misunderstanding. If your character is trying to romance my own, be prepared for it to take awhile.
