Description (Specifications)[edit]

Vargr were drawn here by this newer Imperial region around Deneb. Gvegh and Aekhu influences overlap in Gvurrdon Sector, while Aekhu and Ovaghoun cultures mix in Provence.

History & Background (Historical Linguistics)[edit]

Attitudes along this frontier are marked by sharp contrasts regarding religion, morality, patriotism, violence, and honor. Inconsistency from world to world is about the only thing that is consistent. This region also differs strongly with the inner Vargr regions around Lair in that change is constant and real, consistently breaking from set patterns, and more than any other region.

  • Family bonds tend to have greater importance than pack bonds within the Aekhu region. Siblings (sukagrra) often maintain life-long associations, especially when they're littermates (kagrra).
