The Vivem
A group of natives that made their home in Teyman long ago.  Easy to distinguish due to their appearance, they are known to work as jewelers or dancers primarily.

I just saw the film Ladybird [Give it a watch, it's great] and I just realized there are next to no great teen movies anymore. The best one before Ladybird was Me, Earl and The Dying Girl and that was a full three years ago. And then three years before that, we got the heartwrenching Perks of Being a Wallflower and then three years before that we got Easy A which has the makings of a frigging John Hughes classic. Is that it now? Are we going to only get one great teen movie every three years now?

Because just a few years ago this wasn't the case, Sure teen movies were going down the crapper with stuff like American Pie [ugh] but we got some future teen classics such as Mean Girls, Juno, and Superbad  The genre was winding down but we didn't realize because we thought the same thing in the 90's when we got crap teen films back then we also still got classics that we watch today and don't get me started on the 80's we all know that was paradise for teen movies, strengthening the trend that had been growing in the 70's and probably started in the 60's with the fantastic Rebel Without A Cause

I think that was the film that really set off teen cinema, that gave it a place. Because of this, the following decade started to release films more aimed at teenagers, perhaps most memorably American Graffiti [or maybe I just recall that one the best because it's Dad's favorite movie to watch when he wants to complain about how much cooler life used to be] or the successful movie musical Grease or one of the first mixtures of teens and horror, Carrie.

Then the 80's. A golden era for pop culture and a golden era for teen movies, This was the time of the Brat Pack, the time where Molly Ringwald ruled, the time we first heard the name 'Tom Cruise', The time where John Hughes was in his prime, It's been over
3 decades since The Breakfast Club first hit theaters and yet it's the go-to coming of age film still, We got real charmers like Ferris Bueller's Day Off and real dramas like The Outsiders and really strange creations like Weird Science. We got dangerous with Risky Business, We got stoned with Fast Times at Ridgemont High, We danced along to Footloose, We binged on Heathers-like it was chocolate because it was the dark comedy we desperately needed after dealing with the scars of public education.

The trend continued in the 90s with classics such as Clueless, 10 Things I Hate About You, The Craft, Pump Up The Volume and Dazed and Confused [The latter two are frigging masterpieces btw] but throughout the late 90's and the early 2000's started to become simpler and wind down as attention for teenagers turned to tv rather than to the movies. So maybe it's no surprise that truly great teen movies are hard to come by. I just hope that maybe we'll be on an upswing in a couple of years and the next great time of teen movies will nab us in the ass.

History: The beginning of Teyman was a dark time, a very dark time. Once it was a bare, barren land ruled by a veiled man and his veiled wife who never showed their faces, not even when they were burned alive in their castle. One thing all Teymans know about them is that they only knew one way to live: Through pure hate.

Nowadays the story of the Veiled Spouses are merely bedtime stories to tell scared children but one single thought of them will drive the cold feeling of a knife into your ribs for in those times, if didn't matter if you were male, female, white, black, brown, some form of creature or other wise. you could risk their wrath with one wrong move.

If you were a person of color, a creature of the land, deformed or disabled, poor or homeless, supported almost any form of religion that they disapproved of, part of the LGBT spectrum, unwed or a warrior of the opposite gender, [The Veiled Man hated female warriors, The Veiled Lady despised male warriors] supporter of equal rights, or if you just happened to look a way they didn't like, you could be tortured, maimed or killed without a second thought.

It was the Underworld made flesh until came brighter ages...the Millennium of Heroes.

As though a seed sprouting into a flower heroes arised, The Scarlet Sword, The Great Builder, Valonka the first Warrior Woman, The Knivemen, The Three of the Streets, The Pure Maidens, The Dark Orchid, The Knight of Princesses, The Sailor who could Swim, the Knight of Ale and Bones, these are legends whose stories will never die. For they and countless others defeated the Veiled Man and the Veiled Lady and gave Teyman the freedom it badly needed. They united behind a new leader, whose name and gender has since been lost to history but in a historic council they ordered the very thing that every single true Teyman wanted.

Equal rights. The downtrodden were given freedom, protection and homes. Racism, pedophilia, rape and all crimes became outlawed. any type of Religion was free to anyone, The LGBT were given the rights they had been denied, the deformed and disabled offered a place at the table. Women and Men were treated equally and the creatures were treated like any other citizen of Teyman. Heroes and Heroines continued to sprout and their stories are told in the form of tales to the generations that followed. Things are quieter now but every now and again one for the songs and stories come about.

Customs of Teyman: The first ruler created The King's Bench, a council of 50 or more so lords, ladies, knights, warriors, merchants and seasoned men and women who have come to the attention of the court to advise the king. Unless of course the eldest child of the royal family was a daughter for the Teymans will follow a queen just the same as the king and thus the King's Bench will become the Queen's Bench.

The Teymans have gold as currency but while one may work or fight for gold, fighting for glory or the feeling of sisterhood or brotherhood is far more common. Many men and women are eager to prove themselves legends whether they practice with a weapon or bake bread for a living as history and lore are seen as education and proof of the glory that follow Teymans everywhere.

Individual customs are far from unheard of in Teyman. from personal customs to the customs of various companies and battalions, it is the custom of the axemen that when a male or female chieftain falls, their spouse succeeds them. [Lagertha is an example of this] 
The Guild Knights
Samman, Monal and Castor are new Teyman legends. Each belonged to a different guild in their youth but befriended each other and offered their swords to many quests and wars.
