In Waejir, when a child is born they are brought to the nearest temple of the Mother Goddes, Silat, and inspected by a priest of priestess. If the child is found to have defects such as malformed limbs, weakness, or other obvious signs of impairment, they are given to the temple to return to Silat. There is no dishonour in turning over a child in this manner; it is considered a post-natal miscarriage. Some of these children survive and are raised by the temple as orphans called the templeborn.
Most templeborn join the clergy proper when they come of age, but they are under not obligation to do so. If they leave they will have to contend with the greater society's attitudes towards malformed and broken people. A life outside of the temple would not be an easy one.
