A native

Natives are the people that the player commands and are required to activate totems, passages and other structures. They are referred to in canon as "The Men" to distinguish them from "The Breath", but this wiki will refer to them as "Natives" to distinguish them from the male gender. They are based on traditional African and Pacific native tribes. Currently there are 3 types of natives: Men, Women, and Elders.Natives wear unique mask that are able to produce complex sounds through their instruments ,strong enough to repel oncoming elements such as water and lava.When near a totem , they are often heard playing music and sometimes chuckling.
