Ikran People of the Eastern Sea
|Behind the scenes|
The Tayrangi Clan, also known as the Ikran People of the Eastern Sea, are a coastal Na'vi clan known for their ikran riding prowess, similar to their sister ikran-flying clan of the north, the Kekunan. They utilize this to fish for aquatic creatures in the Pandoran ocean, diving in a fashion similar to the Terran cormorant fish, then flying back out. They have a deep knowledge of the air and sea, including underwater migratory and feeding patterns. Because of this activity, the Tayrangi have strong swimming skills and have a reverence for the larger aquatic predators they come across.
The members of Tayrangi clan are independent spirits, untethered to convention and unburdened by even the strictest of Na'vi clan rules. A Pandoran Research Administration personality quiz highlights their notable traits as being unconventional, eclectic, adaptable, and progressive.
During the battle at the Tree of Souls, the clan is led into battle by a Ikeyni who is painted red in a war paint, portrayed by Alicia Vela-Bailey. Ikeyni is the clan's leader. They are summoned by Jake Sully as Toruk Makto, and assist in the defense against the Assault on the Tree of Souls. Many of them die during the battle, but manage to destroy several of the RDA's vehicles.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Until 2019, they were only known as "The Ikran People of the Eastern Sea", a term Jake uses during the first film. The promotional website for the Avatar sequels lists several clans, including a picture of the clan from the film with the name attached.
