Religion & Culture
Although miece are typically monotheistic worshipping Copi'Bara, they will also pray to the Chosen Few. Miece are very pious and passionate creatures who hold old world traditions in the highest regards. The Partidoquinze is the celebration that all miece women have when reaching the age of 15. Maneirado Guerreiro is the rite of passage all miece men must complete before they are considered men. A miece man cannot marry unless he has successfully completed the Maneirado Guerreiro, and failure to complete it by the age of 20 results in the miece man being labeled 'Proscrito'. He then must cut off his own tail and is excommunicated from the clan.
