The Mask-Maker

The Mask-Maker Emlic Nasir Abbumahn

A central part of the valdurian culture is the mask and cast system they rest upon. The mask maker is the person in charge of making new mask molds used by the state for the population. while most people of means make their own mask to stand out. Everyone is given one at birth.   Apart form making the molds, the mask maker can choose to make new mask to fill holes in the hierarchy. This however is not something done lightly and has to go through the Emperor and the high preist of Illamin.   The current Mask-maker: Milander Kalihafa is pushing to remove/replave the Rat mask. This is having the noble cast of valduria up in arms.
