The Moluccas (natives) inhabiting the Southern Seas seem to share a common language, implying they likely originate from the same people but have divided into their modern-day tribes. The Shaganumbi, Maracai, and Kila have all demonstrated the same vocabulary, heard in both Risen 2: Dark Waters and Risen 3: Titan Lords. At least in many instances, the in-game words appear to be taken directly or derived from Hawaiian.
