The Anarai Clan Sanctuary

Our three heroes have found their way to the land of the Anurai Clan where they hope to find the third sacred object, the Palulukan bone.

Meticulous artisans who spare no detail in their craft, the noble Anurai are a highly resourceful clan of creators who draw on the materials around them. A masterful balance of spirit and ingenuity has set them apart as the finest craftsmen among the Pandoran clans. Wild imagination and visionary prowess guide them to scavenge the vast, bone-littered land in which they live. Both playful and musical, they specialize in fashioning instruments from the ancient bones of animals long laid to rest; skeletal remains of a Palulukan (a Thantor to The Sky People), Pandora’s deadliest creature, are the most coveted. Using these and whatever other materials they may find, the Anurai continuously invent and create beautiful objects.

As an artistic medium, bones are both practical and metaphorical. The Anurai live in a sanctuary littered with bones of ancient animals whose spirits now run with Eywa, our Great Mother. This environment fosters an attitude of genuine respect for all life, even after death. Since the dawn of time, the Anurai have carried this belief. Value of life, even in passing, is the main motivation to transform symbols of loss into beautiful works of art. It is believed that this ritual was first inspired by a call from Eywa. The deity led young clan members across a bone-littered desert. Sorrow grew with each repetitive step, passing bone after bone. As they marched into nightfall, at peak of Pandora’s bioluminescence, the clan members were suddenly one with the long-lost creatures. In this moment, these passed spirits felt incredibly alive. The need to celebrate these spirits consumed the clan to the point of epiphany. The Anurai continue to craft impeccable art with the purpose of transforming lost life into eternal treasure.

Ah, but back to our story...
