Description (Specifications)[edit]

Notan Taledh was a Darrian Law-Giver and Philosopher. Also known as Taledh the all-wise

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Derir Lipit and Yikan Yikan had laid the basis of Darrian Philosophy, but Notan Taledh synthesised this into the rule that:

‘Animals live by predation but men, because of their intelligence, live by production. Thus, a man who lives as a predator is living as an animal and not fulfilling his true nature as a man. Men may use the lower animals for labour or for food but cruelty to them is not allowable. No man may prey upon another man.’.

He also created the Taledh Code which was comprised of three parts:

  • the definition of crimes,
  • the definition of punishments and
  • moral guidance for determining the fitting punishment for each crime.
