The Grassrunners are a recurring tribe that appears throughout the Breath of Fire series. Unlike many other tribes that share a common culture and homeland, grassrunner is instead a catch-all term used to describe the various tribes descended from a common ancestor, this includes such tribes as the Wolba and Woren.[1]


Grassrunners are distinguished by their animal-like characteristics, which vary based upon the individual, and can mirror the traits of such species as dogs, foxes, rabbits, tigers, and wolves. Since the Wolba and Woren tribes are included under the umbrella term of Grassrunners, it's possible that other types of Grassrunners such as those with fox or rabbit-like features also possess distinct tribal names, which have simply not been revealed yet.

In combat, Grassrunners seem to favor long-ranged weapons, such as crossbows and guns, as the only playable Grassrunner character who uses a close-range weapon is Scias.
