Cloud of Ash
The skin appears dry and cracked, though skin dryness isn’t always to blame. Though, the truth is that no one can say what causes the Cloud.
SunIt is common for skin to scale after prolonged sun exposure. Therefore, it might have been rational to blame the violet sun. If not for the fact no other group in the Floodlands display the effects.
AllergiesAs the disease seems to be confined to those from a particular blood group. The next thought becomes that it is an inherited weakness in themselves. However, the Ash does occur in individuals far away from the Ñuñu Hills without known relations.
ParasitesBlame as fallen onto the tiny worms, mites and spongers that swim in the flood waters and bury themselves under the skin that leave the discolouring rash. But that does not explain why it would only target the cloud.
FungusFor lack of any other explanation, a fungal foundation or some other miasma capable of crossing borders as become the dominant theory for transmission. Though its unclear how it could bypass all other states in the same region.
Cloud of Ash gets its name from the constant shedding of the victim's outer layer of skin in large, scale-like flakes.

As tempting as it may be, it is heavily advised to pull the peeling skin off. Instead, allow it to slough off the body on its own.

Hosts & Carriers
Cloud population is culturally homogeneous. Any group of related individuals possess different shades of eyes, skin and hair among themselves so it can be difficult for outsiders to say whose related to who.
The cloud clans are thought of as an indisputably beautiful people. Cloud people are generally of a lighter disposition than other groups, which in itself is not odd, except that their skin carries tinges of pink, blue, grey and yellowness.Their origin tells tales during the Keanian era which describes themselves as being plainly white until the Keans introduced the colours of their world to them. Ordinarily, such a story would have been thought of as being metaphorical, but given the clans are a mix of multiple atypical colours; it is inferred that the hornkins introduced an unknown element into the environment.
Painted PlaguesIt is told that through some unknown and malevolent force, the governor of Gaioor sought to gain a kingdom of his own. And in answer, a deluge of diseases crossed over from the Cold Swamp and, one after another, laid waste to the administrative framework across the empire's cities, coastal colonies and the capital itself. In an attempt to save itself, the cizin banished those afflicted to the belly at the point of the spear. These masses of people would never be seen again.
Imperium Cloud, many people were made very self-conscious, particularly if it occurred on their hands, feet, face, or other visible areas. Later on, as the effects became less extreme in the cloud's descendants, more colour returned to the clans, albeit in a more subdued tinge than was before. The smoggy clan, however, would never recover their hues.
