Cultural Overview

The Qulani live primarily in sub-subterranean caves and tunnel complexes. The resource scarcity of such an environment has shaped their culture into a close-knit community, where mutualism and community property is the norm..

Origins

The Qulani were once surface dwelling Treahni, but have shifted away from their earlier roots to adapt to their chosen environment over the millennia spent underground.

Geography

The Majority population of Qulani live in the Darlom Mountains. A smaller population migrated to the Sildar Mountains after a historical split between to major clans many centuries ago. A single clan of Qulani dwell inside the slopes of the volcano Shar-Bol on Ra Hiem in Iskander. Small insular communities can be found in Treahni towns near their respective mountain territories.

Scarification

Given the tactile component of most Qulani art and communication, Instead of adorning themselves with make-up or tattoos, they practice textural scarification. Small bumps, and ridges of raised scar tissue serves as a decorative and personal expression of the individual. Such decoration is often on the face and head, although more intimate markings may adorn the neck, arms, legs, chest and back.
