174. The Hunt of the Ut-Jor! Prominent patrician, Septum Anande (father of the Senator Oman Anande), and his entourage, are killed in Iridine by a party of barbarians known as the Ut-Jor. During a leisure hunting excursion, the senator had killed a Rain Elk, one of the Ut-Jor’s animal guides, near an Ut-Jor village, prompting the retaliatory hunt.

Overview
The Ut-jor are a tribe of peoples who live in the Blackroot Mountains.
The beliefs of the Blackroot tribes are that if a person has no name, they have no soul. Hence, if a person commits a great crime they are robbed of their name and therefore stripped of their soul. Sometime in the past, a member of a Blackroot tribe committed a terrible, terrible crime and not only was his name taken away, but he was sent into exile. From his descendants come the Ut-jor tribe, a tribe of people with no names and no souls. As a result from having no soul, these people do not fear death and therefore manage to do extraordinary feats of courage.

These people believe that it is their eternal punishment to be without souls. Therefore, it is a great offense to give one of them a name, or even a nickname. The Ut-Jor have even been known to take such offense to "being named" that they would go as far as kill any person who insulted them in such a manner.

Being a rather uncivilized group of peoples, the Ut-Jor (much like the Parcines and other barbarian tribes) worship what they see around them, in nature.

Their love of animals was seen in the 174th Year of the Republic, when a prominent patrician, Septum Anande (father of the Senator Oman Anande), and his entourage, were killed in Iridine by a party of these barbarians. During a leisure hunting excursion, the senator had killed a Rain Elk, one of the Ut-Jor’s animal guides, near an Ut-Jor village, prompting the retaliatory hunt.
