Sterilization is a common practice in the Confederacy and Avar, and was developed by the Triadic Councils as an alternative to the Arcanic Purges. It was first put into practice by The Brickard Trade Agreement as a reversible means to control orvon reproduction and prevent maternal childbirth casualties in the women who were wed to the soldiers at Brickard, however it was put into legal practice on arcanists as well after the first wave of purges. Since then, other laws have been put through to require sterilization of various groups of people in the Confederacy and now anyone deemed to have 'unfit blood' is required to be sterilized. This includes all orvon under the Brickard Trade Agreement, arcanists, slighen, and immigrants and refugees.


14th Century—The Protectorate

In 1348, the Protectorate passed into law that all slighen eighteen years or older would be surgically castrated. Physicians working at the monestaries were trained in the procedure, and by the following year, over ninety percent of all slighen in Avar had been forcibly castrated.

15th Century—The Brickard Trade Agreement

Word of the procedure traveled to Beourjen, where the Beourjen Army began allowing slighen into the military, thus granting second-level citizenship, under the condition of surgical castration. Many physicians in the BC began looking into another method of sterilization, and in 1415 the first successful vasectomy was performed. The BC immedietely switched to this method of sterilization, and began requiring it for any immigrating citizens as well.

In 1438, The Brickard Trade Agreement was signed, with Clause Three including required sterilization of all soldiers. The implication of Clause Three was that it might be amended so that the vasectomies would be later reversible, and orvon who'd served Beourjen for at least two decades could start new families in the BC. However, no progress has since been made toward this amendment.
