    Married to a God

    Brides wear simple, but distinctive, clothing and hairstyles as part of their a monastic environment and from where they interact with the broader community they were assigned. Their most lavished adornment is a headdress made from local resources which is meant to make it easier for the normally foreign-born brides to integrate; while still enforcing their higher status. With complicated results:
    1. common boys consider them elegant but stern
    2. common girls consider them foreboding and authoritative
    3. common men consider them distant and forbidden
    4. common women consider them entitled but reliable
    5. some brides consider themselves family to the Son of the Sun
