I will show you how a true warrior fights!
— Rakyat warrior

The Rakyat are the indigenous people of the Rook Islands, a group of islands in the South Pacific. The Rakyat are a very insular, isolationist culture, with few outsiders being allowed to join the tribe and even fewer becoming warriors (a Liberian named Dennis and American Jason Brody are notable exceptions).

The Rakyat first made contact with outsiders in the 15th century, when Lin Cong, a Chinese commander under warlord Zhang He stole a treasure ship from Zhang He, invaded the islands, and enslaved the Rakyat. Lin Cong forced the Rakyat to build monuments in his honor, however, his island empire fell when Zhang He returned and defeated Lin Cong's forces, aided by the Rakyat, who rebelled against Lin. The next invasion of the Rook Islands took place in the 18th century when the British colonized the region, who set up phosphate mines in the area. The British again enslaved the Rakyat but were forced to flee the islands after the phosphate deposits were depleted and the Rakyat rebelled.

As of the early 21st century, the Rook Islands were taken over by modern pirates led by Vaas Montenegro and Hoyt Volker. While most natives of the islands had grown weary of war and simply wanted to live in peace, the Rakyat believed that they were the rightful rulers of the islands and that their deities would send them a sign to take control of the islands.

This sign came in the form of Jason Brody, an American tourist who was captured by pirates on the islands. Brody escaped captivity, only to be found by Dennis, a Liberian man who had been inducted into the Rakyat. Dennis aided Brody in his attempt to rescue his friends from the pirates, eventually convincing Rakyat leader Citra Talugmai to induct Brody into the tribe.

With Brody's help, the Rakyat retake both the northern and southern Rook Islands from the pirates. After Brody kills Volker and rescues his friends, he returns to the cave where his friends were hiding to find them kidnapped by the Rakyat. Citra tells Brody to kill his friends and stay on the island.

Expert's Opinion[]

The Ulars won this battle because of the superior firepower of their weapons, as well as their better logistics and training, which allowed them to over come the brute strength of the Rakyat and even the pain tolerance gained through the use of drugs.
