Role throughout the seriesEdit
Breath of FireEdit
In this game, the term "Forest Clan" is used to refer to a tribe of nature-revering hunters. The Dark Dragons drive them from their homelands in an attempt to coerce them into giving up the Ring, a magical artifact in their clan's possession. The Forest Clan respond by building a new town, Tantar, deep within the woods, which serves as a sister city to the human settlement of Tuntar. The towns enjoy a harmonious relationship, including intermarriage between their people. While Forest Clan may specifically refer to Tantar's canine inhabitants, the game's dialogue also leaves open the possibility that it refers to the collective inhabitants of Tantar, which also include humans and Iron Ogres. The canine segment of this population are depicted as muscular, yet lithe, with slender faces and prominent ears. While their fur is most commonly brown, their chief's is blue, which later becomes their dominant fur color in Breath of Fire 6.
Breath of Fire IIIEdit
Two members of the Wolba, Gary and an unnamed co-worker, appear among the workers at the Dauna Mine. Gary is crippled during an encounter with Ryu's dragon form and re-surfaces years later at the mine's
