Road of Scholars
- Griots: who can call upon the songs to recall history at a certain point in time.
- Witching Doctors: the traditional healers and mediums to the spirit world.
The First Griot is said to have "paved the road" while learning the primordial histories from the Sphinx, Nofdeti while under the Learning Tree. It is said that the only way that the First Griot could memorize the histories was through song. Nofdeti enjoyed his song so much that he *invested* his song with some of the magics of the the Faeroahs and it became known as the First Song. The First Griot was able to teach these songs to others and was able to write song for Makonnen and that song has been added to with each emperor that has come after, becoming known as the Song of Chiefs.
The initiated start they rite by swear to all the Orishas of knowledge and are blessed under the Learning Tree. Griots must prove that they have learned the five songs and work the magics of the Song of Learning that ingrains the knowledge of the of the mystic into the blood of the witch doctors. Before a iniate can become a witch doctor, they are given a message to convey to someone in the spirit-world, they are then taken to a stone slab and are given multiple cuts over their body. A griot will stand over them and sing the the Song of Learning putting them into a trance and transporting them into the spirit world. There they are met and tested by their ancestors to prove they are a vessel strong enough to handle the knowledge being sung into them. Those that are rejected by their ancestors are violently kicked out of the spirit world and those that are said to have survived are often crippled by the experience.
