Half Kabardey thanks to my mum, and i feel like an Avsar thanks to my patrilineal heritage.
Qabardei dwell the plateaus of Circassia(Caucasus) and known for their code of "nobility" and militarism. They have social classes and very loyal to them.They consider themselves the most civilized,kind,generous and brave people of the world (:
Also, they're famous for the beauty of Qabardei girls.
Avşars, the only tribe which still remembers its name, is one of the 24 Oghuz(Western Turks) tribes who established Turkish rule in the middle east and europe. Ottomans were "Kayı" and Seljukids were "Kınık", and Avşars established "Karamanoğlu" Duchy and Afshari dynasty of persia.
After collapse of Karamanoğlu Duchy, Avşars lived under Ottoman rule but they refused to obey emperor's rules. They still,even in 2010 believe that they were the rightful successors of the Seljukids. So, they became outlaws, their guerilla warfare against Ottoman empire lasted for 300 years. And Avşars still is well known for their courage, fondness for a fight, and rebellious nature. Their ballads and battle hymns are still remembered, such as "The order(firman) belongs to the Sultan, mountains belong to us!"
They still remember their tribal name, unlike other tribes who now call themselves simply "Turk". This is because of their outlaw nature, they refuse to be "ordinary".
Qabardei were easily defeated by russians coz they refused to apply sly tactics in battles and also thought that fire arms are dishonorable. They attacked with cold steel towards cannons and guns. Their obsolote codes now caused them to be sent into exile.
Avşars lack the ability of uniting. they always divide things, even they're divided among themselves.
