History and background
Shankida was settled by the Ziadd early in the eighth century, the society is self-sufficient, and most everyone is single minded and self-opinionated.
Indenturing is common on Shankida; all children are owned and must work their way to freedom by repaying society for their upbringing and education. Those that do not achieve freedom (about 40%), remain indentured for their entire lives. The penalties for abusing indentured servants are fairly severe, and culturally mistreating servants is viewed as a mental disorder.
