Welcome to the tribe of



You are a Gikoriu! Just like Nanyilẹ’s top inventors, you were gifted with a creative mind. You might be an artist, a musician, a writer, a teacher, or a scientist- whatever your job or hobby is, you approach it with great love and care, finding the magic in it. You throw all of yourself into your craft and you have an excellent eye for detail.

You are ambitious and not afraid to break new ground, thriving on the rush of making something new where there was nothing before. Because of your commitment to your craft and attention to detail, you are also able to achieve the goals you set for yourself.

Your ability to see the big picture makes you a great leader, and you are able to set a course for yourself and those around you. You are also a great multitasker, having multiple projects to keep your mind active, and are amazing at problem solving because of your ability to think outside the box and find resourceful ways to navigate obstacles.

Be sure to slow down enough to give both yourself and your projects the attention they need.

You've just discovered your tribe – GIKOIRU
But what does it mean to be a GIKOIRU? 

GIKOIRU, also known as ‘The Inventors’, is one of the seven tribes in our mythological fantasy series titled ‘The Ones Before’. Blessed with pioneering minds, Gikoirus are the innovators and most advanced tribe in Nanyilẹ. They build impenetrable structures, and are creative at their craft. Because of this, they are often sought after by Nanyilẹ’s elite for big architectural projects. Their advancement surpasses even that of Kuwogo, the ruling tribe, who make up most of their clients. Gikoirus take pride in their abilities and find great joy in using their creative talents. The Gikoiru landscape also reflects this, filled with tall buildings that are as strong as they are beautiful.They are also highly intellectual and worship the god of justice, Jawsu.
