Vilous Documentary-Ep.5: Nevreans


Nevreans, one of Tal’s most beautiful
creatures. This race of avians belong to the Eltus group of species. They have
a similar appearance to feathered dinosaurs with a distinct case of sexual
dimorphism. Nevreans are one of the three sentient and sapient Eltus who are
regarded as humans collectively or the human existence on planet Tal. When
compared to both Sergals and Agudners Nevreans have very distinct and
unparalleled differences between males and females. Both genders share smaller
and slender physiques than the other two races. Because of their sexual dimorphism
both male and female Nevreans could be considered their own species. The gender
differences between the two can often be hard to understand, because of this there
is often a misunderstanding between the species as a whole. A common example of confusion would be Nevreans have reverse gender roles compared to Earth’s
humans. This is not the correct way of understanding Nevreans even though it
may appear this way at first glance, when in reality Nevreans have extreme
contrast and unparalleled gender roles. Nevreans are oviparous
making them an egg-laying species. Because of this Nevreans do not have
a navel or breasts. If you have seen Nevreans with these features they are
considered old artwork or fan creations. Nevreans are the only species who are
born from eggs. There are several highly notable
differences in the cultures of native Nevreans and urban Nevreans, due to many historical and cultural reasons. Native being their homeland and Urban being
citizens of Gold Ring. Native Nevreans are very exclusive and
unfriendly against the other races and their culture while urban Nevreans, who
mainly live in Gold Ring are comparatively friendly towards the other
races. Compared to life on Earth, a Nev- -reans appearance has been described as
bird-like, they display many similar features to that of feathered dinosaurs.
(Having teeth and a crowned head with visibly stout horns swept backwards.)
The gender differences in Nevreans are sometimes expressed as being gender
reversed, however this explanation is an inaccurate understanding of Nevrean
gender. A part of their gender roles may Still be considered something similar
to a reverse gender in a sense, but a correct way of understanding their pre-
deposition and nature in their gender could fall under gender-neutral or
non-binary when compared to Earth’s stereotypes. Nevreans have many stark
differences but they do have common unisex features they are quite skillful
with their hands and are both generally smaller and slender compared to the
other Eltus races. Both genders love music although there is a gender divide
male Nevreans generally play the role as a musician while females are listening
and being an audience. Nevreans have a clear difference in behavior and social
activity between males and females. In their traditional lifestyle and
culture males are artistically creative they may be actors or performers in a
traditional opera in contrast females engage in pragmatic works such as food
procurement, housing maintenance and technical cooperation to maintain life.
native Nevreans have been very exclusive and isolated in their homeland of Nevrea, located in the Far West of Planet Tal. They are in a state similar to a
closed country, the native Nevreans who live in these lands have maintained
their own culture with their own race for a long period of time. The region of
Vetla has been the only exception to this. Vetla is the only region that has
been actively exchanging culture with Gold Ring even though a cultural
exchange has been established. Most native Nevreans still have no grasp on the
other foreign countries and races on Tal. Around the year 33 in the Rain
Calendar, during the events of the world war, Nevreans who had lived in the
Vetla region took refuge at Gold Ring. These immigrants would become the urban Nevreans who still live within the city. From the time Nevreans first immigrated
into Gold Ring they would be subject to a harsh and difficult life filled with
racial discrimination from the other races until the year 70 in the Rain
Calendar. These Nevreans would lawfully get their human rights in the year 70
finally joining the ranks of both Sergals and Agudners. While there is
individual variation among Nevreans, there are steadfast gender basics between
males and females. The gender differences show completely opposite and contrasting
features both physically and behaviorally, the two genders make a
balanced social system while complementing each other like yin and
yang. A person who has features comparable to both genders would be
treated as androgynous to the other members of the Nevrean race. Nevreans have a very unique romance culture, the term clean “yaoi” is
used when referring to the important and traditional culture of native Nevreans.
Because of this Nevreans generally do not have antipathy or aversion to gay
romance. Irregular individuals unlike regular Nevreans generally pass through a
difficult life as these irregularities are comparable to that of a physical
disorder towards the general gender basics of the Nevrean race. If these
individuals live within the native lands of Nevrea and follow their traditional
lifestyle they may not pass through as many difficulties because regular Nevreans
would support them and give them suitable roles and tasks. The roles and
behavior in Nevrean sexual dimorphism are often described as “being the
opposite from Humans on Earth” when grossly oversimplifying their
gender roles. This description is not accurate as the basic nature and
structure in Nevrean genders are fundamentally different from humans and
mammals on Earth, both psychologically and socially. As an example when
describing female Nevreans as “masculine” or “manly”, this makes a contradiction.
Unlike most mammals on Earth including Humans there is no rivalry between male
Nevreans. Female Nevreans do not compete with nor do they become competitive
against each other. Female Nevreans play a protective role
towards male Nevreans, attempting to guard and preserve their beauty, having
platonic love and worship them as if they were a faith rather than attempt to
monopolize them sexually. As such, females have a strong faith in the trust
of their mates and will have no issue with sharing their partners. With this
spiritual background in their culture Nevreans do not have the concept to
consider sexual intercourse as entertainment. There is little physical
affection shown by females towards their offspring as they do not breastfeed, they
place more social value on their male partners instead. The children learn to
see their parents bond as a model to follow and forge their gender identity
from observing this relationship. Loss of valued males can see a breakdown in the
social order of remaining females, having lost a partner to put their faith in
they may turn to lawlessness after losing their place in society.
Widowed females may conspire together as thieves and kill and pillage
travelers. They will have little trust for each other
united only by a common interest in their own survival. Their traditional
lifestyle values the survival of males to avoid this sort of situation from
happening. There are many characters who exist within the world of Vilous, both
fan and official. Yun Yagili is one of the more well-known female Nevreans.
she has been a long staple and example of female Nevreans. Priley, an urban male
Nevrean merchant and Vilous team member is one of the many examples of
the species beauty and has helped show the world Nevreans live in along with
their culture. Females have a raptor-like bod,y a stern look, taciturn and
serious nature. Their personality shows a strong “static” and “passive” behavior. They
are rather nervous and their personality is quite mature in nature, they are very
severe and true to their role, therefore carry on with life without freedom of
choice. Generally it is considered taboo if they
depart from their basic role. Female Nevreans have an instinctive secretive
nature. They do not share a lot about themselves even things they are
passionate about such as hobbies, due to this nature it is very easy for females
to appear weird, spooky and doubtful to the other races. Moreover their serious,
severe personality adds more negative vibes. Many of the other races have
antipathy for female Nevreans. This has caused the large-scale racial
discrimination of Nevreans in Goldring after the world war. Female Nevreans are
symbolized as shadows, the land, or yin. It means they generally stick to the
audience side in most forms of entertainment. They do not carry out
initiatives and creative activities. Urban Nevreans however depart from such
nature ever since the “Sabi no Wa” was founded. Females are also awkward at
singing and fast-talking due to the structure of their throat. Female Nevreans
have a special relationship with male Nevreans, they serve to protect males
while receiving their spiritual healing. Females enjoy entertainment such as
songs and operas that are performed by males. Entertainment from males serves as a form of simulation of entertainment because they experience vicariously
instead of enjoying it firsthand. In a sense, they experience a type of
psychological projection onto males who are treated as avatars for females.
Irregular females may have their large talons not develop in rare cases,
fragile females may be supported by other females in the native lands. Native Nevrean culture expects females to employ taciturn and
reticent behavior. Due to this, a female that speaks to anyone without having
something important to say is considered rude. In contrast, urban females may be
talkative like males because these traditional gender differences have been
eroded by life in the city. Females who belong to the “Sabi no Wah” or “The Ring of
the Rust” which is the progressive group of all Nevreans of the new generation who
are building the new future for Nevrean culture carry out and initiate
creative activities and dye their feathers vivid colors. Females in
Out Ring, (which is the organisation of bandits) are representative examples of
corrupted females. It is one of the worst situations to be associated with this
group of females with those in society who do their best to avoid falling into
their company. Males have a fragile body with adorable bird like it looks and a
talkative hedonistic nature. Their basic personality is strong and dynamic as
they talk to anyone positively. They always enjoy the idealist life while
holding on to optimistic ways of thinking and behavior. Males can be
careless due to these things, a factor that gives them a childish nature. Males
do not mind their role in life, therefore carry on life with wide freedom. Male
Nevreans can be delighted when they find things that are interesting and amusing.
Nevrean males are very much public creatures and enjoy sharing their
experiences. The other races can get a blindly good impression from them,
moreover their beautiful and adorable appearance can give overall good vibes.
Unlike females, they were treated well after they soon came to Gold Ring. Male
Nevreans are symbolized by the light, the sky, or yang. It means they are suitable
for being creators such as artists and musicians or any form of entertainer.
They positively carry out initiatives and creative activities. In their native
land of Nevrea, any entertainment such as songs, music and operas depend on
them. In Gold Ring male Nevreans brought big influences that led to a major shift
in the everyday entertainment in the entire city.
Male Nevreans are protected by females who function as a defensive wall for
them due to their careless behavior and lack of physical strength. They live
their lives the way they want to live them. This behavior naturally makes male
Nevreans spiritual healers to females. Males always play the role of the
inhibitor to a female’s brutality. Irregular males who show muted or dull
color schemes like that of females are regarded as inferior or ugly.
In the native culture they are evaluated if they are good at singing but their
appearance being treated as a form of individuality. In the City of Gold Ring,
even if such males have a beautiful singing voice, urban Nevreans only
evaluate on appearance. Because of the “Sabi no Wa” or “The Ring of the Rust”, males can work in progressive activities. Nevreans who have no abnormalities with
their health have wings that continue to grow throughout their life. Some urban
Nevrean males will cut their wings for specific jobs that do not rely upon the
need of their flying abilities. Flying is a unique ability of Nevreans, specifically
males who can glide for extended periods of time or in some cases they can even
take flight. Nevreans feature a small breastbone, the keel in the center of
their chest, similar to Sergals. Compared to the other Eltus races their bodies
are shorter and thinner. They have long thin, whip-like tails with ornamental
feathers on the tip of their tail. Aged Nevreans show some white feathers
sparsely, some may even have chipped wounds on their beaks or horns. If Nevreans
grow fat their chest will expand giving them the appearance of a pigeon’s chest.
Their beaks take up the center of their faces; the ends of their mouth have
freedom of movement while their upper beaks move around their eyes. The front
of their scalp is smoothly contoured with small swept-back “horns”. Both genders have
small horns above their eyes. Their eyes face forward while also being
comparatively big. Both genders have a voice that echoes, their natural tone
oscillates between tenor and soprano. Basically, males are higher pitched when
speaking or singing and females are lower pitched.
Both genders are excessively noisy when they quarrel, females are generally quiet
and taciturn due to their traditional nature. Nevreans lack physical strength
compared to the other Eltus races but they possess remarkable intelligence and
manual dexterity. They are skilled in precision engineering but lack the
physical endurance needed for labor-intensive mass production jobs.
Both genders have an equal role in child-rearing
however the tougher and more serious females take this most serious while
males can choose their own time to play with their children. Native nevreans feed their young through regurgitation, much like Earth’s own avian life while
urban Nevreans generally make use of commercial food preparations
though they may still feed their young through regurgitation if they
can’t afford commercialized food. As a fun fact the name Nevrean is actually an
anagram for Raven. Nevreans are generally a carnivorous species but they
will eat various seeds, fruits, nuts and berries depending on what they are able
to harvest. Beans are also a staple food. Females in particular will seek and
consume small game animals such as Talyxian mice, birds or other insects. On occasion, they may hunt and kill larger game up to the size of a deer. Males tend to prefer more tender fare like fruits and worms but their diet is overall
similar to females. While Nevreans have a clear gender difference, all Nevrean children have no gender difference until they reach the age of adulthood.
Male children have a muted gray plumage and female children have long wings that
they can use to fly before puberty. Nevrean children are born with a
gray and fluffy coat regardless of their gender. A common feature shared by all
members of the Eltus race. Unlike other Eltus children, they still keep gray
plumage even after they pass two years of age. They will not begin to show their
true colors until puberty. A female’s talons are of a slightly different shape
though this cannot be easily determined before their other gender
characteristics begin to show during puberty. In rare case, this change will
not occur at all. No difference in genders is apparent either physically or
in personality prior to puberty. This is reached at around 11 or 12 years of age.
Nevrean children of both genders may engage in a play or pretend flight. (As a
note, whether these times or in Earth years or Talyxian years has not been
decided yet. The difference between time on Earth and time on Tal has also not
been decided yet.) During puberty their sexual dimorphism begins to become more
obvious. Females will continue to gain bone, talons, beak and muscle mass, become
increasingly heavy and their flight feathers will eventually fall off
naturally to never regrow as the purpose for flight no longer becomes a usable
option. Every native female will cut off their last flight feathers as of coming
of age rite. The rite will have been finished by making an arrow with those flight feathers. Adult female vocal chord structure will change becoming unable to
make fine sounds. Due to their childhood experience they can still identify
various sounds and words and understand those deeply. Males also have a few
differences in their structure but they change and regrow
their entire plumage to that of feathers all at once. Males will undergo
a loss of bone density and their body will become relatively more lightweight
and fragile as they approach adulthood. Because of the differences in male and
female growth, females will require a diet of higher fats and proteins while
males will develop fine on their usual diet of fruit and tender animal foods.
Native Nevreans will learn rules for each gender along with strict and formed
gender roles because of their traditional culture. Urban Nevreans such as those found
in Gold Ring will have a less traditional upbringing due to their cultural
interaction with Sergals and Agduners. There exists a small number of
Nevreans in the Shigu territory but they are generally only workers and
merchants captured while traveling in the eastern lands. Nevreans would never
visit the Shigu territory voluntarily due to both distance and language. Only a
few native Nevreans, mainly males have been captured from the
Western Nevrean lands. Most workers in the Shigu clan are captured members of the
other Eltus races with combatants being entirely Sergals. Had captured Nevreans
been used in combat General Rain’s invasion and conquest of Gold Ring may
have been more successful. Nevreans are only one of the greater whole that is
the Eltus race. Tal has many of its own unique forms of life, but the story of
this world has been driven by those whose origins lie among the stars. Hey you, looking for some genuine Sergal
