Though few records of early inhabitants of the Neruvian Islands exist, it is believed that the first settlers immigrated to the eastern-most island from the eastern peninsula of the mainland. These settlers are believed to be the Neruvi Tribe, a people organized into approximately 15 clans, from archaeological evidence found on the mainland, though little is known about them after they immigrated to Neru.
The Neruvi were a primitive and technologically backwards people. They hunted for their food and wandered, not settling to farm, as they believed it was against their Gods' wishes for them to remain in one place. When hunting could not satisfy the tribe, they raided small farming settlements...that is, until the arrival of the Cuusi, a dominating people and blood enemies of the Neruvi. The Cuusi were significantly more advanced than the Neruvi and were backed by strong agriculture and leadership. Not knowing how to respond to the growing prominence of their enemies, the Neruvi fled in shame to the nearby island they called Sortstrand (Black Beach). There, they encountered a climate significantly different than their own. Instead of vast forests, they found rolling hills and flatlands. The differences were so significant that they found it difficult to hunt enough to feed the entire tribe, so, they were forced to settle into farming, a decision that, supposedly, shook their social and religious belief systems. Religious objects relating to them have been found off shore, supposedly tossed there after periods of unrest. Ancient villages believed to have been built by the Neruvi are still in existence and are preserved by the Neruvian government.
Evidence of their spread across the island can be classified into three stages: Initial Shock Settlement; Gradual Expansion; Exploration. It was in the Exploration stage that they discovered the central island, for which, they had no name. After a few decades, some of the tribe split off to settle the central island. It's settlement took significantly less time than that of the easternmost island and, when the westernmost island was discovered, it took even less time to settle than the central island.
