For history of these people, see Tuaram History.

Religions

Its main religions are Muk Zuas and Ma Tu. Muk Zuas has a large pantheon of gods which can be followed by anyone, though their current king -- called the nanohe -- usually has gained the favour of a particular god or goddess at the start of their rule. Ma Tu is closely tied in with the authority and validity of each king, known as a tzoil.

Neither religion utilises anything in the way of specific religious sites, as they are so closely tied with their governments. Priests of Muk Zuas are called Kejoka, and priests of Ma Tu are called Anari.
