Sylvane has a series of tribes that are inter-connected family groups. The head of the tribe is a adult chief.  Male bachelors live together in a hut in the outskirts of the village. When a  man marries he may move out and starts his own tribe, usually but not always with an alliance with the tribe he left. Sometimes a man who is through to possibly overthrow the chief may be also ejected, or asked to leave on good terms if a tribe is substantially large enough (around 50 people).


At any time, a member of a tribe may challenge the chief to a fight to the death. If he wins, he claims the dead chief's position and his harem of wives. However, it is considered taboo for a son of the chief to challenge the chief since that would imply taking his own mother for a wife.
