Just a quick question, are there any Huana in-game that isn't an aumaua? I'm just curious since I haven't seen any at all in-game. I'm also planning to make an orlan with a Deadfire background and I want to know if it'll fit nicely with the setting.

I don't remember seeing any, though they are described as "primarily" aumaua. As I recall, if you pick the Deadfire background it sometimes assumes you're Huana regardless of race

I read there were pale elves, dwarves, and orlans amongst the Huana in a Wiki but, I've never seen them anywhere. I guess I'll just assume there are for now.

Because the Huana are so racially dominated by aumaua and there's no procreation in mixed race couples, I imagine its hard to keep the non-aumauan population up within the Huana.

I never saw one. Unless you count non-aumauas that live in Neketaka. But I never saw anyone referring to them as Huana.

 

My character is an elf from the Deadfire and sometimes people notice that. They never called me "Huana", but Queen Onekaza, for example, refers to me as a "countryman" or "one of our people":

Cool. I guess I'll go with the Deadfire background and see what's up. The Huana is comprised of multiple tribes after all. Since they'll be close to the White that Wends, there could be tribes further down south that got dwarves and elves among them.

We don't see all of the Archipelago in the game (Naasitaq is further south from the map, for example). So it is possible there are other groups that include different races.

 

If you are not an Aumaua but come from the Deadfire, just assume you lived in another area or visited Neketaka once. You'll even know their language.

I believe that Naastiaq dwarves make totaly different culture, hence they are not Huana. I think the problem is that the game tries to treat same way "country" or place of origin, as cultural affinity. Still, Archipelago seems to be highly Huana dominated (as natives). However, while they theorethicaly hail from Old Vailia, I would say that we can treat also the Principi as native "culture". Naasitaq and other (boreal) dwarven societies make for another separate culture, but we don't have (sadly) much of access to them (aside of one northern (?!) island of some cultists) - before release of the game I was hoping, that we would be able to visit Sagani and her family. ;)

I was 99% sure we would see Sagani in Deadfire. Maybe they didn't see anything interesting to do with the character. She did end up living happily ever after in most of my PoE1 games.
