The humans of Arunia, except the Adeshians, believe in Ascension. Ascension is a funeral tradition where bodies are taken to the top the Valond mountain and burned to ashes while a Valond priestess stays and prays the entire time the body is burning. Once the ritual is complete it is said that the person's soul raises to the sky and becomes immortal to watch over the people. However, this ritual is only performed on chosen kings and queens because the journey the top of the mountain takes months, and only certain priestesses are allowed to perform the ritual. The last ritual was performed when Queen Kathleen died.
The journey to the top of the mountain is called Valar.
Adeshians believe in Neema, the goddess of heart. They believe in absolute equality and freedom, and that the soul is free of boundaries.
Humans have varied names: Derenians have French, Adeshian have Spanish, Valondians have English.
