A ryb is the more respectful word for teacher used at the Great Ga'Hoole Tree. It is a title given to any owl who teaches a chaw at the Great Tree, and is also used in their names. Examples of this include Sylvana and Elvan, two rybs who are often reffered to as Sylvanaryb and Elvanryb respectively.
