Upon coming of age, every Centaur
is given the choice to join one of the Six Clans. After a year under their new Clan's guidance, they undergo Clan-specific trials. Upon victory, they are given their earned titles and welcomed as a full member of the Clan. For most trials, death is the only way one can truly fail.
Each Clan has specific laws and tenents that each member must follow to their last breath or be banished from the Verdant Expanse entirely. As such, Clan members hold great pride in their Clan, even under threat of death.
