Soujo Jyaon (Rules for the Dead)

These are the various burial practices that are used in the Poku Saeruo Degonjo.

Return to the Clan

This is the most common method used by the Qaktoro for disposing of their deceased. The body is taken first to a Siama Ruo'sa (Divine Room), and the final prayer for the dead is performed. Then the body is taken to a Ânamus norjopa (Recycler) where it is broken down into its components to be reused by the clan.

Occasionally, a Punla (Family) may request what they wish the remains to be used in.

Return to Siamaka

This is the most common method used by the Tula for disposing of their deceased. The body is taken first to a Siama Ruo'sa (Divine Room), and the final prayer for the dead is performed. Then the body is taken to a Ânamus norjopa (Recycler) where it is broken down into its components to be reused as nutrients for the plants.

Serving with Kotoz Mui

This is a more rare form of disposal, and is naturally more costly. Only Qaktoro belonging to the Tavi Fua Jael (Blood Tooth Sect). The body is taken first to a Siama Ruo'sa (Divine Room), and the final prayer for the dead is performed. Then the body is is placed into a sealed container and towed by a HS-AF1-1c Meqpâ'a Gulvisa (Prowler Fighter) and launched into the sun.

The Kept Fallen

The last method is only available to members of the major Ruoka (House), and even they restrict it to the Ruoka'ta. It became available when Tabak'ka became available in 229 CY (YE -490). On Tabak'ka a special dome was erected. Its interior is a lush garden that is carefully maintained. The area is dotted with structures called the “Vaults of the Dead”. They are essential mausoleums, and are decorated with carvings of scenery from Otâgolisoy (Birth world) that hold significance for the Ruoka'ka.

The body is placed in a coffin constructed out of Mâqitua'tomin (Transparent Light Metal), and filled with a gas that preserves the body from decay.
