Although some mythological sources claim that the Man with Feathers was a half-man half-bird, but it is much more likely that The Man with Feathers was a man who always wore a robe made of feathers.

There are many versions about the legend of the Man with Feathers, but all tales about the Man with Feathers agree that the Man with Feathers was a descendant of the royal family of the Zempachi kingdom Kihan Kuka, and all tales generally agree that the Man with Feathers led a group of people running away from the the Zempachiland(the land where the Zempachi peoples once lived), faring east by a sea.

In the legend of Nanarulamuts, the Man with Feathers was the first king of the Kingdom of Nanarulamut, it is believed that all kings and queens of the Kingdom of Nanarulamut are descendants of the Man with Feathers, legend has it that he saved a group of slaves, leading them runnning away from a tyrant, having an adventure on the sea where he killed a giant monsterous fish and finally arrived the estuary of the Fish River.
