-Oricenta ​highly ​value nature and will do everything in their power to show their respect. Oricenta are expected to grow up honing their knowledge and abilities to find a worthy elementalist to serve as their Companion. It is one of their main goals in life, and when they lose a bond with one elementalist,​ they were expected ​to move on to find another. Fortunately,​ finding a Guardian is not enforced to avoid weaker bonds by rushing the relationship,​ but it is very much admired. Oricenta who do not have a Guardian will still be expected to do their part, either by healing nature that is being harmed, helping ​the occassional elementalist, or by being home and contributing to their own society. ​+Oricenta value the importance of nature and will do everything in their power to show their respect.

 Death is a respectable path for oricenta. When one dies they are considered to have become one with nature. They have completed their cycle, being born from nature, then returning to nature to be used as resources. Oricenta funerals are large, vibrant, and happy, with them admiring the dead for giving themselves up to be used once again. Negativity towards the cycle and death is considered extremely rude. Death is a respectable path for oricenta. When one dies they are considered to have become one with nature.

-Oricenta are compelled to trust and serve elementalists.

Oricenta ​are compelled to serve elementalists. Both Oricenta ​and elementalists ​are drawn to each other and tend to warm up to each other faster than they might someone else.

 == Elemental Bonding == == Elemental Bonding ==
  
-If an elementalist and oricenta feel like they have a strong enough connection, an oricenta can bring their elementalist to Ilada to bond together. ​This will make the elementalist the oricenta'​s Guardian and the oricenta their Companion. ​Any commands the Guardian gives will override any other commands and there will be a constant and mild empathy effect. Both the Guardian and Companion ​can mentally call to each other. This call can be comparable to having a strong feeling ​that someone needs you and knowing where to find them. They can also tell where the other is without sending a call. If a Guardian and Companion decide the bond is not working out for them, they can return to Ilada to get it broken, immediately removing all of the magical effects. ​Oricenta can only bond with elementalists ​that can control at least one of the same element they are.+If an elementalist and oricenta feel like they have a strong enough connection, an oricenta can bring their elementalist to Ilada to bond together. ​The elementalist ​will become ​oricenta'​s Guardian and the oricenta their Companion. ​Oricenta ​can only bond with elementalists ​that control at least one of the same element they are

Line 498: Line 505:
 Oricenta place family as one of their most important values. They generally live in households with around 15 to 20 people, that includes both blood relatives and family friends. Oricenta who live in small families are considered weird and quietly judged. Those who live alone are frequently often questioned and considered an outcast. They are assumed to have done something bad to make them leave their family, or worse, their family leave them.  Oricenta place family as one of their most important values.

-The reason oricenta ​live in such large families ​are because it is easier ​to take care of their kids and homeschool ​them when multiple families are taking care of them. Young oricenta are prone to extreme bursts of magic and not knowing how to control their instincts. Having multiple adults to be there to watch and control a child is very important. Oricenta who want to be parents are required to take a year-long course teaching them the basics of parenting and what to expect with their child and all oricenta Types (the latter being a refresh of mandatory courses from childhood). After completely with satisfactory grades, they can have as many children as they want, though they are heavily encouraged to retake the class around every one hundred years to refresh their memory.+Other than needing a lot of physical and emotional affection, Oricenta ​live in large families to easily ​care for and homeschool ​for their children.

 If no legal guardian in the household has taken those courses or has but is not available (work, traveling, school, etc.), the child will be taken away and put under the care of an orphanage. At least one available adult member of the household has a year to complete the course to gain custody of their child back, and if they fail the course, their child will be up for adoption. The guardian can retake the course and afterward test as many times as they please, and if their child is still available once they succeed, they will be able to get their child back. This is all a very rare instance, as the vast majority of oricenta households have multiple members who are available to care for the child, and their need to learn often brings them to take those courses with enjoyment (sometimes without plants to have a child or adopt). The oricenta can then give over or share legal guardianship later on once the parent took the test. If no legal guardian in the household has taken those courses or has but is not available (work, traveling, school, etc.), the child will be taken away and put under the care of an orphanage.
