Dominance Orientation Balanced
Telrakans are the dominant group in Telrak.  They are non-dominant in Merochas, Belaquin, and Malyk. Aspects Preservation
Telrakans are notoriously fractious, but typically have strong extended family bonds.  Telrakan communities often consist of only one or two extended family clans, and where two or more families have combined to form a community, there is significant inter-marriage between the families.

Custom and Lifestyle Status and Family
Symbols and Arts Clothing and Decoration
Telrakan garb varies, but a typical farmer dresses in a linen jerkin and trousers, low boots or sandals, a wide-brimmed hat, and possibly a light wool cloak or robe in cool or wet weather.  Telrakan women typically wear linen blouses and skirts, sandals, and wide-brimmed hats or head scarves.

Wealthy Telrakans ape Belaquini, Malyki, or Merochasan styles and forms.  Current trends favor Belaquini styles through most of Telrak, although the northern and southern border areas invariably favor Malyki or Merochasan fashions, respectively.  

Telrakans who reside in neighboring lands often adopt the clothing styles of those lands permanently.

There are a few distinctively Telrakan clothing styles, but these are typically confined to laboring-class attire.  These styles can also be found among laboring-class Telrakans residing in neighboring lands, especially for semi-formal attire worn at feasts or weddings.

Religion and Magic Historical Notes
Telrakans favor the deities Natup and Daedo.
