Home of the Ciples
Conflicts with HanalundThe ciples and the Hanes have had their disagreements for as long as anyone can remember. This also means that the Ilk-nean High Council and Hanalund often don't see eye to eye on all matters. Through time, they have had conflicts over deforestation, who owns the island and who should get to live on it.
In control of their beloved homeThough Hanalund has tried to claim ownership of the island many times, it is not under the control of Hanalund, but is rather controlled by the Ilk-nean High Council. The High Councul is a group made up of the Ilk-nean Elders who lead the Ilk-nean Faith. The council acts both as religious leaders as well as a government for the ciples.
The damage the hanes managed to inflict on Alinage in so few days was devastating. It took us years to get the nature of the island back into shape. We will never forget their heinous actions, and we do our best to ensure they're not able to do it again.
The ciples are always on their toes when it comes to the hanes. They are well aware that they are a target and therefore they have a special force trained for defending their home from those who wish to harm it.
The overgrown islandFollowers of the Ilk-nean faith worship the Old Fae known as Teldrinne. The ciples believe that she is watching over them and Alinage, because she created both the ciples and their beloved home. In the eyes of the ciples, the island is a wild safehaven where animals aren't hunted for sport but only for necessity. Plants are left to grow instead of being burned away or chopped down.
In harmony with natureCiples see both nature and the island as being sacred, and therefore they're against actions that could harm their beloved home and the animals and plants that live there. The island stands in stark contrast to many parts of Hanalund were many trees are planted and chopped down for lumber.
Nothing will ever be as beautiful to me as Alinage, both the plants, the animals and the people mean the world to me. It is my home and it holds a special place in my heart
Non-human inhabitantsThere are quite a few small furry and feathery creatures living on Alinage. There's a wide array of smaller birds as well as a few bigger ones. House sparrows, Tree sparrows, Marsh tits, Hawfinches, great spotted woodpeckers, robins, greenfinches, blackbirds, wood pigeons and starlings are all to find on the island. Also pheasants can be seen running around between the trees. Hedgehogs, mice, red squirrels and Bredtean Melpins are all inhabitants of Alinage as well. Nothing bigger like foxes or wolves live on the island, which makes the Bredtean melpins the apex predator on Alinage, like on many of the other islands in Kanden.
A people who live in Hanalund and on the isle of Alinage. They're against the way of living commonly seen in Hanalund.
