Anemophilans

The Divine Wisteria plucked with his finger a comb so delicately carved and painted with flowers. The final touch was brushing his hair free of a tangle; when the deed had been done, he held in his arms a child.

Creatures created first hand by Wisteria and resemble some depictions of angels, but have a few differences; they sport bug wings and triangular nimbus. They're capable of some plant magic and practice magick of the Fray. Though they look human, this is only the guise of the moonlight, under the sun, they show their true forms.

The Anemophilans have a very simple diet: nectar, jelly, fruit, and scavenged meat. Their eating role as scavengers are important to their belief: the cycle of life is perpetuated by consumption of the body, which they feed to birds during funerals. So even though Wisteria is their main focus of worship, birds are also believed to be minor gods. Alongside other religious rituals, they have invented wish machines, sacred instruments that act as a vessel for Wisteria after his passing.

And this is how they structure jobs:

  • Shrine Keepers: maintain the shrines and give offerings to gods.
  • Scribes: their job is to research magic and using it to build technology.
  • Nurses: in charge of childcare and teaching.
  • Doctors: like humans, they're in charge of caring for the sick and injured.
  • Foragers (discontinued): in charge of collecting food rations from the Horizon.
  • Cultivators: in charge of growing food produce.
  • Maintainance: they're in charge of building, repairing, and cleaning the city.
  • Crafters: a catch-all term of manufacteurers for goods.

  • They speak a language different from any on the Horizon named Floriography, to humans: it resembles a combination of programming languages and characters resemble arrows. Since they are given by Wisteria himself, names are seen as sacred and given pronounciations and characters unique to the language.

    Their main performing arts are puppet theatres and dance, and their music mainly composes of chimes, bells, and synths.
