Pelmarco and Niahla’Sen claim we need to return to Torheem. Dawn and I would rather travel west. However, I reluctantly agreed with the others. We’ve hardly recovered from our trip to Nazada, and our supplies are gone. I asked if it was acceptable to just go to Mazin for supplies, but I don’t think anyone wants to stay in that town long enough to replenish our supplies. The Red Exemplars are going to Torheem anyway. They saw the sword Pelmarco brought back from Nazada, and want to have their own weapons and armor forged in a similar style. We could also consider going almost due north and somewhat to the west to reach Sehol, but that’s twice as far away. We’ll eventually need to head west anyway, but it’s better if we first replenished supplies.

I think Dawn’s greatest concern is being around so many people. After spending years by herself, she finds it difficult to associate with just one person. I almost expect her to run off just to be alone again.

So what all makes a Huvudet different from the average person? I think I mentioned previously that they generally have darker skin. Regular people have such diversity, but the Huvudets are less diverse. They’re all very similar in skin tone, which as is their mythology, is almost gray, the color of dawn and dusk, the difference between night and day. Everything about them, including their eyes and hair, takes this grayish hue. They are also just a little shorter than the average person is. One thing I noticed when I saw my first Huvudets near Puv’l Ewoy was they do not appear as many illustrations in libraries depict them. I think whoever painted those images never saw an actual Huvudet. Many illustrations depict Huvudets with one or more strange features, including pointed ears, claws, bird feet, and many other features found on animals. In reality, Huvudets are very similar to us in appearance, with notable major differences being their coloration and size.
