Rules and Traditions
Hera Aega has numerous rules and traditions. Their known rules and traditions are, the members of this tribe when they've reached the right age undergo a sacred ritual called Talpas. Markings made out of wood extracts are placed on the sides of their foreheads if they haven't undergone yet the sacred ritual. After a member has successfully accomplished the ritual, they will have to cover half of their faces when there is a presence of a man. If a member's mask is removed while there is a presence of a man regardless of the race, their faces will turn black and white and they suffer extreme pain as if being burned. When male soldiers or a messenger from Etheria come to their tribe, they put on a piece of black cloth to cover their eyes. They also have a another rule, that they cannot let a man who has seen their tribe live. The members of this tribe are forbidden to marry but they can conceive a child with a man as that is the only way for their reproduction. If the baby is a girl they would keep the baby and raise it to become one of them. The founding members of this tribe lived by their belief that "Men are the key to their strength, but they are also the key to their weaknesses." and that became the foundation of their rules and traditions. This belief of theirs was greatly shown when Odessa fell in love with Ybarro. The Heran disobeyed all their rules and went against their traditions just to be with Ybarro proving that belief to be correct.
