Ikolinians (Ikolinian: Ikalewnesirge, Thaaft: Ikolinirag) are a Fals ethnic group of Saftian descent, that inhabit the city of Ikolinis and its vicinity. The group is a subset of Ikolians that emerged in the 14th century and grew increasingly distinct as Ikolinis became an influential city. Due to their historical political influence, Ikolinians have a diaspora that extends across both the Fals Empire and the Fáknir Republic, although these individuals are increasingly assimilating into their surrounding cultures. Ikolinians natively speak Ikolinian, a dialect of Ikolian, but unlike Ikolian which has been largely supplanted by Thaaft, Ikolinians have mostly retained their language, with Thaaft in use as a secondary language.
