The Hvetshran that live in America are divided into two big clans in North America and two smaller clans in South America. They moved from Europe to the Americas through Russia around the 8th or 5th century BCE. The original American Hvetshran are most likely descendants from a clan from the Ural or Siberia that grew too big and broke off.
Migration to AmericaEdit
The group of Hvetshran that had crossed the Bering Strait to Alaska, originally stuck together. As they resided close to this passage, they were probably backed up by other Hvetshran crossing it during the following decade(s). They came from the various clans of the eurasian continent rather than just Russia or the north. After a while, the clan in North America hit numbers of around 200 or more and decided to move south, to enlarge their hunting opportunities.
When a small group of Hvetshran encountered indigenous American people during a scout, they did not instantly start hostile engagements. Since they seemed to be the only humans in near vicinity, the Hvetshran clan tried to set up a cautious but peaceful interaction. The opinions within the clan were however heavily divided by the dilemma whether or not to trust mankind.
Over the next generation, the American clan had both negative and positive encounters wit mankind. Most of the clan members had sided either for or against humans, to the extent it was unofficially split in factions. When it got to a couple of aggressive cases, the clan made an agreement to split up before the events would turn less friendly. About three-fifth of the clan moved thus back northeastwards to settle back closer to their original location.
The part that stayed with the human people was later not entirely considered to be a pure Hvetshran clan. Even though it took several centuries before mingling became somewhat common, the clan is currently very hybrid and probably does not have a single pureblood Hvetshran member anymore.
A second divide happened when the clan grew too big and part of it split up to move even further southwards, to South America, where it in itself split up into two or three clans.
