}}The '''Oina''' tribe is the native people of the [[Kamui]] region of [[Nippon]]
'''Oina''' are native people from the land of [[Kamui]]. They have the unique ability to change into wolf forms, and also have enhanced senses. For some reason, they wear animal masks over their faces. They are based on the [[Ainu]] people of Japan.

==Description==
The Oina have always lived in Kamui. They live in a village called [[Wep'keer]], which is close to the Ezofuji mountains. Two hundred years ago, the [[Ark of Yamato]] crashed into [[Laochi Lake]] near Wep'Keer, releasing the many demons inside. [[Lechku and Nechku]] probably took the appearance of altar statues, until they came alive and were sealed away by a brave Oina hero. The Oina are also protectors of [[Yoshpet]], the forest of deception.

Particular Oina involve in the game's story, which are: [[Oki]], [[Kai]], [[Samickle]], [[Kemu]], [[Tuskle]], and [[Lika]]. The other Oina in Wep'Keer either provide information, sell items, or provide a small sidequest.
