Somnancy Bleakhearts Ethnicity in Ethnis | World Anvil

Somnancy Bleakhearts

So many people shun us, deem us dangerous and filthy. We are either turned away or cast into the lowest echelon of society.   Not The Somnolent. Our holy leader gives us hope, gives us a chance to be helpful.
— Somnancy Bleakheart


BleakHeart as a Kind fall under prejudices among the Banners. Despite their powerful magic, their infection with Selschaeus (Dark Unity) can make them a dangerous time bomb to some.   Many Banners make immigration for Bleakhearts a complicated process, denying them entry unless they are already sponsored or placing them under constant surveillance. The only Banner that always opens its doors for the Bleakheart is The Church of The Somnolent.



The Embrace of the Somnolent

The Somnolent has taken many actions to embrace and entice the Bleakhearts to live within the Somnancy; dedicated mental care, specific job roles suited for their purpose, and bans on Bleakheart discrimination.   One of the largest moves the Somnolent personally took was to allow and hire Bleakhearts to join the ranks of the Angels. This ultimate units came with the highest honors, and so by taking on Bleakhearts, the Somnolent proved that they were able to achieve anything within the Church.

I have to say, this article was simply horrifying yet beautiful at the same time. After reading up on the bleakhearts, this article feels like an amazing supplement to complete an already amazing article. I love the fact that just like other articles about the 100 days challenge, this one manages to be short and beautiful at the same time with its atmosphere and formatting. Congratulations and keep up the great work guys!

Bleaks are probably my favorite sapien sophont. This makes me think of a tale where a bleak enters another banner or migrates homeworlds and there might be a fun short piece in the trials and triumphs of a pilgrim bleak longing and looking for a place to call home.   Also looking forward to reading on more historically notable Bleaks when those come about.
