The Laruba Ruins are the site of the former village of the Laruba tribe in Prehistory. For years, the Laruba people hid out in the forests on the western side of Pangea. They were content to let the people of Ioka Village and others fight off the Reptites.
Just before the coming of Lavos, the Reptites then attacked Laruba Village, burning it to the ground and hauling many of their people off to Tyranno Lair. This led the Ioka chieftain, Ayla, to assault the Reptite keep and slay their leader, Azala, just before the keep's destruction by Lavos.
The Laruba is known for riding the swift Dactyl. Controlling this wild species of avian is a secret that is only shared among the Laruba.
Their color pattern strongly resembles the one from the enlightened ones from Antiquity. It is possible to speculate that they are their progenitors, while the Ioka is progenitors of earthbound.
