[4.3] Genetics Edit

They have relatively low genetic diversity, a fact due to the small number of people who’d first colonized Ersalor.

[4.4] Life cycle Edit

They have roughly the same life cycle as regular humans. However, they only mate during the spring, an instinct which evolved from the fact that offspring tend not to live at any other time of the year. Note this pertains to sex only; actual relationships can start whenever.

[4.5] Diet Edit

Their clothing is typically in hues of grey, dark blue, or dark green. The dark blue is most commonly trimmed with silver, and the green trimmed with gold. Their clothing typically is made of silk, with simple but curving designs.

They usually have a hood of some kind, though it is not always put up. Females often wear headscarves, though also wear regular hoods.

While the exact layering and designs have changed over the years, the general structure has always remained the same:

  • Females wear structures not unlike skirts, though they're opened at the front (not dissimilar to a trench coat), and they wear actual pants beneath. Their shoulders are often exposed, and their arms covered by extremely long gloves or sleeves.
  • Males lack the dress structure of females, and their sleeves are attatched directly to their tops. Their tops are often lengthened in the back.
