Ideals

Beauty Ideals

Smooth sand is considered beautiful. If a Talahdi says ones skin is like the sand of the Sand sea, they are complimenting you on your looks.

Courtship Ideals

Talahdi wander in small groups and thus matchmaking is done through a sort of annual pilgrimage whereby several nomad groups gather in a location near the great sand lake and mingle. Those who travel on the great Sand Sea and encounter one another are said to have linked their Iil (Sand Paths). In other words, they are drawn to one another by some greater force.
