Tales from the Fallen Gate
The people of the city of Quodeth are known throughout Thule as Quodethi. They are the largest and most numerous nation or tribe among the Kalay peoples. They are not tall, and have dark hair, dark eyes, and a deep bronze or honey-colored complexion.
They are generally regarded as worldly, hardworking, and given to flowery speech and exaggerated politeness, frequently using turns of phrase such as, “Your humble servant begs . . .” or “This one has heard . . .” instead of “I want” or “I heard.” When irritated, Quodethi can veil vicious barbs in the guise of polite phrases. Among the noble class, this cloaked repartee is elevated to an art form.
