HAVEN: Lore (17)

“The social system of the Core is undoubtedly patriarchal. The King is the ruler, never the Queen, and the eldest son is always the heir. Women have always been a part of the Council of War, but you can count on one hand the ones that have risen to the position of Chancellor. The same happens with The Coin, where Tuneric Pecunia is the only woman who has worn the First Robe. But as you move towards the Periphery, the gender distinctions start to fade. It seems that among the peasantry the Choice they make at their Initiation is what distinguishes them, more than what they hide between their legs. One has to wonder if in this issue the uneducated are more evolved than us.”
