Found in coastal villages along the Silver Sea, the Sifa clan was one of several Gelfling clans that existed on Thra before they were exterminated by order of the Skeksis. They were skilled fisherman and sailors, but very superstitious. Explorers by nature, the Sifa were competent in battle. However, they truly excelled at survival, which they attributed to the magic charms they always carried with them. Rumor had it that one could drop a lone Sifa on a deserted rock in the middle of the ocean, and return a year later to find that he had not only survived, but built a home and started a family. According to SkekNa the Slavemaster, the essence of the Sifa aided in longevity.
