The original homeland of the Easterners is Bolon, now in northern Xurno. The Easterners began to spill out of Bolon in the -600s, but exploded onto Eretald and the Xengi plain in the -300s, conquering the Meťaiu and Wede:i people, respectively.
Most of the Eastern languages are fusional and nominative-accusative, but share few other typological features. The protolanguage was most likely consistently head-last (SOV, AN, GN, OP). The Čia-Ša languages are largely isolating, and so different from other Eastern languages that some linguists place them coequal with the other four branches-- that is, they consider Čia-Ša and Eastern to be sisters of an Eastern-Čia-Ša superfamily.
