Knowledge Worth Seeking
“There are those that thing we are cursed having been given such frail bodies, but we see it as a gift. It reminds us of how precious life is, and only our little brother and sister realize this. Since the survival of our young is not easy much of our time is spent helping with the raising them in the community, while the line family takes care of the majority of the responsibility. We who are the fortunate survive have the grand gift of seeing this world, which, while it has its problems, is glorious in its splendor.”
“While growing, everyone is trained in one of the martial arts as a means to build up our own resistance to the plights of this world. Adopting the practice of little brother and sister, we have realized the importance of a name and so at 12 the child earns the right to a true name. This is when they are fully accepted as a surviving member of the community. The ceremony for all children is held during the celebration of Arkath, our protector and the one whose passion burns in our hearts and allows us to overcome the hardships.”
“As we grow, while we may spread out, our hearts remain in the petrified forest at the base of Arkath’s mountain. And we all return one day.”
