The Exiled are former Kin, stripped of their status for actions threatening the safety and well-being of the Vardan. Typically this is caused by actions threatening the all-important neutrality so central to Vardan survival, although Clans may also exile their members for any reason including a failure to follow safety procedures or an inability to put the needs of the Clan before their own. Exile is considered the greatest imaginable punishment, stripping a Kin of both their Clan and the protections of Vardan society. It most cases it is also intend as a temporary status, to be removed once the Kin in question agrees to correct their errors and abide once more by the laws of the Vardan Council and their Clan.
To be Exiled is to be declared no longer Kin, stripped of one's place within the Vardan. In a social society built around the collective, where "we" and "us" and used in all but the most intimate of conversations, this is a heavy blow and a punishment not taken lightly. To be Exiled is to become singular and alone, and expected to fend for one's self in the vast universe.
