Nišé'ínu Šúráyu


Traditional Shurayu Outfits

Fashion:

There is no real difference between the fashion of men and women in Shuraya. Shurayu of both genders wear colorful and intricately-woven short-sleeved fringed tunics and multilayered robes, typically covered in floral, astral, or oceanic imagery complimented with shawls and well-crafted golden and copper jewelry, with men favoring armbands and women favoring large jeweled earrings. In official settings it is customary for Shurayu to wear tiaras and tall crowns.

Male Shurayu generally keep their hair short and gelled and sometimes slightly spiked. Female Shurayu keep their hair long and curled, often decorating it with gold flakes and flowers on holidays. Men are expected to grow facial hair, to conform to Shurayu beauty standards as well as to cover their sensitive jaws. The growth of a man’s beard along with its shape, size, thickness, and texture is extremely personal and varies from person-to-person; to have one’s hair or beard shaved off is an extreme indignity and the mark of a slave. As for body hair, women are expected to be without it, while men are expected to have it.

Other than the wearing of kohl for both genders (men usually only wearing it in the summer), makeup is rarely used outside of religious ceremonies.

Scars are looked down upon as it is believed a scar provides a conduit by which an enemy can be remembered and serves as a symbol of ownership, like the branding of livestock. Most Shurayu would not suffer the indignity of having the will of enemies marked all across their bodies and have them removed.

Once a Shurayu reaches their eighteenth year of age, their transformation into adulthood is commemorated with a ritual called Saḫápašinnu where their canine teeth are gilded with gold.


Demeanor:

The life of a Shurayu is one of immense pressure, to be healthy and strong of body, to have a large family, to toil day-in and day-out with a pseudo-religious fervor, to resist all temptations, to stay vigilant against all threats, and to reconcile their individual self with the great collective of the Shurayu. There is no other species who can live up to these demanding imperatives but the Shurayu, they are a people bred and raised for stress, for ten-millennia this mountain of responsibility has sat heavily upon the shoulders of the Shurayu, and over time they have gotten more-and-more adept at bearing it. Shurayu are not mindless drones however, many of the more tertiary imperatives of ATRAḪASÍS have been quietly shirked for countless generations, this is especially true now, as Atrahasianism begins to recede in the wake of the more relaxed way-of-life ascribed by the once-absentee Ur-Iláni.

The Shurayu are a quiet people, small talk is seen as nothing more than ignorant bleating, only expected from children and sheep, and is usually beaten out of Shurayu before adulthood. Shurayu say what they mean and nothing more, because of this, most Shurayu have often been utterly inept in socializing with more talkative cultures.

Shurayu generally eschew immediate physical confrontation, preferring first to discuss the issue. If however, the way of words is ineffective, Shurayu will not hesitate to escalate to the way of fists.

Emotionally, Shurayu come off almost entirely vacant due to their culture’s intense emphasis on stoicism and discipline, however their stoic bulwark is lowered when at home or around friends or family.

The duty of a Shurayu is their honor, and while they revere their culture’s libertine values, they are not an individualistic or culturally deviant people by any stretch of the imagination.

Thanks to their elongated vocal cords borne of their lofty heights, Shurayu possess low, booming voices, often made gravelly from a lifetime of smoking, perfectly suited to the harsh Shurayu language. When speaking English, they trill every R and carefully enunciate every word. This coupled with the calculating and philosophical Shurayu mindset had given many Shurayu the reputation of being disconcerting bores among the savage Erṣetim.

Shurayu are difficult to know and slow to trust, however, the hard-won friendships of Shurayu are unbreakable, Shurayu are a loyal people for death is seen as preferable to betrayal. In the eyes of the Shurayu, a person who betrays others lives on with their reputation and the reputation of their family by extension forever stained, and their soul eternally tarnished, whereas a person who dies honorably betters not only their own reputation but the reputation of their family as well.

Shurayu by their very nature are a reactionary and vengeful people, never forgetting a slight, and rarely not getting restitution in one way or another.

Shurayu are proud as they are tall, for each one carries a ten-thousand-year-old chip on their shoulder and regard non-Shurayu with the same attitude one would be expected of someone forced to deal with a disgusting animal unless the non-Shurayu might stand to be of some benefit to the Shurayu.

There are few things more abhorrent to the Shurayu mind than a lie. Shurayu are rarely liars, for honesty is instilled in children from a very young age and to be caught in a lie, regardless of it's purpose or severity results in a significant falling of one's social stature.


Sexuality:

Bisexuality and monogamy are standard in Shurayu society and both heterosexual and homosexual marriages are legal and seen in equal standing, the Atrahasian imperative to marry young applying to all Shurayu regardless of sexuality. Being ardently against lecherous behavior is something both ATRAḪASÍS and the Ur-Iláni agree on, Atrahasians oppose it as it violates the Tenet of Išdu and the religious oppose it as Ištar, the Love-War-God decrees sex is a deeply sacred and emotional activity not to be done lightly, as that taints the action and makes it foul. Homosexuality is respected by Atrahasians due to Atrahasian Canon stating a person is stronger when with someone they wish to be with and respected by the Illilútayu due to Ištar’s dictation that love knows no gender; besides these, there is also the more antiquated view from back when Shurayu civilization was bound to a single crowded city that homosexual couples should be revered for helping to slow the increase in population.


Gender Roles:

While men and women are treated equally in Shurayu society, gender roles are nonetheless deeply embedded within Shurayu culture. Men are expected to exemplify strength, imperturbability, diligence, and intelligence and be more aggressive. Womens’ expectations are to be supportive, act as stewards and advisors to the men, and be the main technological innovators, the latter expectation being exemplified by the fact that the vast majority of Shurayu scientists are female.



Shurayu dishes spread over Ḫuḫḫuru
Cuisine & Narcotics:

Shurayu cuisine varies from planet-to-planet, but what is universal is it’s colorfulness, fragrantness, and tremendous spiciness. Shurayu dishes typically consist of various curries, thick-stews, and occasionally stir-fried meat with sides taking the form of vegetable purees, chilis, both cooked and raw, and chilled greens. Traditional Shurayu cuisine is made of lentils, beans, tomatoes, spinach, pomegranates, cassava, chicken, eggs, fish, and lamb cooked in spiced ghee and is served on large circular platters covered by Ḫuḫḫuru, a thin honeycombed sourbread that also serves as the utensil of the Shurayu.

Meat is eaten sparingly, usually only during dinner, with the majority of a Shurayu’s calorie intake coming from a variety of slow-cooked buttery vegetable dishes.

In regards to refreshment, Shurayu favor unfiltered and unsweetened fruit juices, thickbeers, wine both red and white, along with water.

As with most things, eating is a group activity, with families of Shurayu reclining around low circular tables and eating from the same platter.

Narcotics, especially tobacco, poppies, coca, and marijuana are grown on sprawling plantations and terraced gardens, grown like any other crop which are then refined and often infused with magic to enhance the effects of the drug or add entirely new effects. Narcotics are used regularly and casually by Shurayu of all ages as they possess a steadfast resistance, though not an invulnerability, to many of the ill-effects of narcotics, a necessary adaption from the dark days when the Shurayu home island of Shuraya was an inhospitable jungle whose flora spewed foul poisons. While the Shurayu staple drugs all originate from Šurrâtar, there's an innumerable amount of new drugs being created all the time from the flora and unique compounds of the various alien worlds blessed by Shurayu hegemony. A planet’s drug harvest is the time of a great merriment and celebration.

To counteract the tar buildup in their lungs from their regular smoking, Shurayu ingest a special species of worm born of ancient alchemy called Ḫašűtu'issú which wriggle into one’s lungs and subsist solely off the tar therein, neutralizing the tar’s toxic effects within their stomachs and eventually dying and being absorbed into the user’s body once they reach a certain size. These worms are inexpensive and are sold in small tar-lined jars adjacent to smokables within most stores. It is common for high-end restaurants to breed their own Ḫašűtu'issú to accompany their house-grown smokable appetizers.

Overconsumption of anything, food, drink, narcotic, or otherwise is heavily taboo, as it violates the Tenet of Išdu. Shurayu do not tolerate gluttony.


Family:

The Shurayu family is a central part of life. It is seen as the base element to a functioning society and is therefore revered. People marry young and have many children as that is seen as one's sacred duty to their family. Ancestors are also held in extremely high regard; when a Shurayu looks into a mirror they feel pride in what they see, for they see not only their own features, divorced from the features of any other, but a compilation of the combined faces and genetic inclinations of all their revered ancestors. Shurayu invoke the names of their ancestors regularly when undertaking difficult tasks and vowing solemn oaths, and regularly pay their respects to their death-statues. Families are set in a LinkSudanese Kinship System meaning each of a person's family members possess a specific title. There is no distinction between immediate family and extended family, as it is standard for families to live close together. Thanks to the small initial population of Shurayu and their Pagrušimtum to allow inbreeding without ill-effects, incest is very common, with the entirety of the Labíráyu being the product of ten-millennia of inbreeding. In regards to inbreeding, the only taboo on it is the heavy taboo placed on intergenerational incest, which is seen as vile and disgusting, and would bring great scandal upon the perpetrating family.


Death:

Shurayu are often stereotyped as having more affection for the dead than the living due to the intense care and respect placed upon the dead in Shurayu society. Traditional Atrahasian belief says that there is no afterlife, and that the dead enter the ‘Dreamless Sleep’, where their soul sits stagnant and unconscious in an infinite void whereas Religious Belief insists the souls of Shurayu reside in the realm of their Ilu-Mušallimu located within the infinance of Ur-Kuríbadnáti once they die, with both beliefs agreeing that it is the responsibility of family of the deceased to ensure they are not forgotten. The bodies of the deceased are cast in marble in a rite called Saḫápamút, their marble bodies becoming conduits between Ur-Kuríbadnáti and Ur-Pagradnáti, placed on altar-like pedestals in family tombs regularly visited by the family’s scions who pay their respects, clean the altars, and sometimes summon the ghosts of their ancestors to receive advice or an ally to fight alongside. If circumstances prevent Saḫápamút, then the body is to be burned, outside if possible. This respect for the dead traditionally extends to warfare as well with combatants often gathering enemy dead and bringing them to the encampments of their comrades under the white flag in a ritual called Šalamtámartam and in the days of cavalry, Shurayu horsemen would either go around corpses or carefully move them out of the way to avoid trampling them.


Music & Dance:

Music is the medium by which the Shurayu best express themselves, the way by which the stoic mask of the Shurayu is removed, for a time. Shurayu have an acute emotional reaction towards all kinds of music, the normally stone-like countenances of the Shurayu wetting with tears, their still, poised bodies dancing, jumping, and moving to the beat. It is unclear if this reaction is innate or learned, but it is certainly universal.

Bét-Zammárúti are centers of community and treated with a temple-like reverence, for they have been the preeminent venues for Shurayu to relax and take a break from the strenuous demands of the ŠIPÁR ATRAḪASÍSI since time immemorial. At the end of every week any given Bét-Zammárúti can be seen at full capacity with countless Shurayu enjoying whichever bands are playing, singing along, dancing, and indulging in smokeleaves, soaking in the sounds and vibrations and letting them coax out the repressed emotion and stress built up from of the past week.

Shurayu music is as emotional and raw as the reactions to it, with poetic and well-crafted lyrics, delivered by deep raspy voices and powerful riffs, it heavily features guitars, zithers, drums, and metal horns. Shurayu music can range from low-and-slow ballads to sway one’s body to, to mournful melodies that get even the most hardline of Atrahasians to sob, to energetic songs that’ll get a whole room singing and dancing.

Dancing is generally a group affair, with the simplest and most popular dance being the Ḫiga, where it’s participants join hands and dance in an open circle, the movements of the circle dictated by the leader in the front who waves around a colorfully-tasseled sword with their free hand. Shurayu dance is known for its fluid hip movement, shimmied shoulders, hypnotic arm movements, and seemingly arbitrary foot patterns as the dancer twists and twirls to the tempo of whichever music is playing.


Sports & Fitness:

Sports are an important aspect of Shurayu culture with divisions and leagues existing from the smallest of towns to whole star systems. The most popular sport by far is Šeḫṭumasappum, a timeless sport where two teams of players try to throw a ball into the other team’s elevated basket. Capturing the attention of all, sports are treated as a light-hearted matter by its fans. While it crushes to Shurayu to see their team lose, there is no lasting bitterness and the only spectator ‘rivalries’ that exist are feigned feuds persisted for the sake of tradition and fun. As the playing of sports is a Zakűnayákútu activity, players have their name, number, and team logo painted onto their skin.

Fitness is a staple in the daily life of a Shurayu. It is instilled at a very young age by parents and schools alike that regular exercise and a healthy physique are important in order to live a happy, successful, healthy, and moral life, along with a way to cope with stress, and that shirking exercise and being out of shape is immoral, disrespectful to one’s self and family, and engenders a weak mind. Martial arts is a mandatory part of the curriculum in all schools and is seen as highly important for the proper development of Shurayu in the interest of instilling confidence, reducing the chance of violent interactions, and promoting health and discipline.


Dueling:

Dueling has always been a legitimate way to redress grievances between two people in Shurayu culture. It is an ancient rite devised by Ištar, predating even the ŠIPÁR ATRAḪASÍSI, rare due to ATRAḪASÍS’s discouragement of internal conflict, though even he conceded blood must sometimes be spilled to end a feud. A duel must happen outside under the shade of a nut-bearing tree, a plant of Ištar, in the nude so that no secrets may be concealed, and with each person dousing themselves in incense oils so that each participant may feel the embrace of Ištar in such a perilous event. The duelists wield a falcata in each hand, or in some cases two straight daggers. There are two types of duels: Mútašgagi and Salámašgagi, the former being a duel to the death for severe grievances and the latter a duel to submission for more minor disagreements.


Recreation:

It is said that to follow the Teachings of ATRAḪASÍS is to temper one's soul and bring happiness and pride to one’s heart, but that does not negate the great stress incurred from following such teachings. Among the Shurayu there is a quadrumvirate of recreation known as the Erbet Mussa'íturabű: Music, Sports, Narcotics, and Art. These are the four popular past-times of the Shurayu and therefore comprise a great deal of any given Shurayu’s freetime. Within the cities of the Shurayu can me found several Bét-Zammárútú, Bét-Ṭúbšírú, Bét-Qatárú, and Bét-Nikiltú, levacious houses filled with Shurayu eagerly unwinding from their heavy lives.


Names:

The oft-long and intricate names of the Shurayu are well-thought and deeply meaningful things. A typical Shurayu has six names, five of which are given to them upon birth. One's first name is their Níbillutu, the name shared with all those in their family, Second is a person’s Níbatalittu, given to them at their birth by both parents, a vision for how their parents wish for their child to grow up to be, used as their personal name for their entire life. Third is one’s Níburabű, not given to them once they reach legal adulthood, but once they reach age twenty. It is given by a loved one and describes the personality and/or appearance of the one it is given to and serves a mainly ceremonial purpose. The following names are all given at birth and serve primarily as easy ways to identify basic information about a person. One's Fourth name is their Níbuwálidu, a combination of their parents' Níbatalittú. Fifth is one's Níbukakkabu, a combination of one's order of birth and which month they were born on, and lastly is one's Níbumátu, which denotes their place of birth.


Magic:

Shurayu are magical beings, and magic permeates all levels of Shurayu society, infused with virtually all technology, and playing a part in the daily lives of all. Despite this, relatively few advance their magical skills past the fundamentals learned in childhood as the development of one’s magical prowess is an extremely expensive, personal, dangerous, and difficult endeavor, but those to do manage to train and excel with magic are called Multépišú and held in high-esteem, often holding many high ranks in the military and civilian government. The most powerful group of mages is the enigmatic Great House of Mánišutuš whose fortresses dot many dimensions and mirror the wills of their constructors, standing as impossible monuments in defiance of reality and whose iconoclastic mages follow only their own egos, their coffers filled with the plunder of countless dimensions. There are five tiers of magical ability:


Healthcare:

The Shurayu have an advanced private healthcare system comprised of several small-to-mid-sized companies under the strict supervision of the government. Annual checkups and physicals are standard for Shurayu, but besides that, going to a clinic or hospital is seen as a last resort, with Shurayu not wanting to risk using medical supplies unnecessarily. In regards to mental healthcare, it doesn’t exist whatsoever. In all of Shuraya’s history, mental illness has never been understood nor treated, just a source of shame quietly hidden behind closed doors. Following like a trail of invisible fire behind the immense violence all along the astral frontier has come a mindplague called Tuquntumuḫḫu infecting many of those caught in the violence, inducing episodes of rage, intense sadness, stress, anxiety, and hallucinations. There is no currently known cure but to expel it through one’s own force of will, which very rarely happens, leaving many mentally crippled for the remainder of their lives.


Architecture:

Like with most things, the Shurayu style of architecture has never changed. Over the millennia the scale and building materials have grown larger and grander, but the general motif has remained the same. Shurayu buildings are large for largeness's sake and are usually squared and constructed out of stone and blue-glazed bricks, with rosettes and designs of local animals and people spread throughout. Shurayu buildings have high, arched ceilings and flat roofs which people often use to lay on and bask in the light of the pale moon(s). Shurayu are avid gardeners, and local plants can be seen on lush terraced gardens, spilling down gracefully over walls. The entrances of large or affluent buildings are often guarded on either side of a pair of marble Lamassu statues which can be animated with a spell.


Modesty:

The treatment of nudity in Shurayu culture is highly contextual and circumstantial. The Shurayu believe nudity comes in three forms: Zakűnayákútu, Maskunayákútu, Erűnayákútu. The first and only publicly acceptable form of nudity is that which is expected. Fitness, sports, and bathing, public and private are seen as inherently naked activities, the first two due to the belief that a healthy physique born of hard-work and good-breeding is something to be appreciated and taken pride in within the proper venues; to be clothed during such activities is considered strange. The second is nudity that is unseemly, which is any non-sexual nudity that does not conform to the activities stated previously, this also includes the nudity of children, which is never to be seen in public in any context. The third form of nudity is nudity which is sexual, ATRAḪASÍS and Ištar both agree sex is a private matter and to commit it publicly or in a way that purposefully attracts the attention of others is unacceptable.

Hygiene:

Hygiene is extremely important to Shurayu, with buildings and streets being kept clean just as their bodies are. A cold shower is taken in the morning to help wake the body and a hot shower is taken at night to help lull it to sleep. There is a robust public-bathing culture with every Shurayu city possessing a number of Bét-Narmaktú possessing many amenities lacking in Shurayu homes such as steamrooms, filled with patrons chatting and bathing. After showers and baths, Shurayu cover themselves in a variety of plant-based oils called Piššata, which hydrate the wearer's skin and produce a long-lasting and minute natural scent that nullifies body odor. The specific blend of one’s Piššata just like with beards, is highly personal and varies from person-to-person. Besides this, it is customary for a Shurayu home to have a sink in it’s entryway where guests are obligated to wash their hands before touching anything.


Festivals:

The Shurayu year is chock-full with festivals, from Atrahasian ones celebrating the births of important scholars, various morals, and historical achievements, to Religious ones, celebrating the Gods and things they represent. The largest and most important festival is Isin Tašríti, held on the first of Nisánu till the seventh, commemorating the Birth of Shuraya, and with it, the beginning of the new year.

Of the seven days of Isin Tašríti, Úm Šapáli is the most beloved, as it is the day the incumbent Šar becomes the ritual embodiment of the government and as they are humbled and reminded of their place in service of the people, so too is the government they lead.

First, the Šar is marched shoeless and undecorated, adorned in naught but a plain black robe by the nation’s ten most senior Ḫá'iṭánú out of the Dašarum-Lá-Šanán and up the steps of the Nuḫar-Šúráya, a great ten-tiered ziggurat crowned by two iron statues of a man and a woman standing together, representing the people. Upon reaching the temple’s zenith, the Šar is stripped naked by the Ḫá'iṭánú, and is as such stripped of all pretense, secrets, and haughtiness, their body public, stark, and honest as the government is mandated to be. Next, the Šar prostrates themselves before the statues of the man and woman and speaks to them without script nor rehearsal, promising them their leadership up to then has been honest and fair, and assuring them it will continue as such, and affirming their submission to the people of the nation. After the small flesh-representative of the government makes their affirmations to the great iron-representatives of the people, the Šar walks to the center of the zenith with the Ḫá'iṭánú surrounding them in a circle. After this, a conch is blown by a citizen chosen at random at the foot of the temple, heralding the most beloved part of the ceremony. After the conch is blown, all ten of the Ḫá'iṭánú bear down on the Šar, ruthlessly beating them for a minute, if any of the Ḫá'iṭánú are perceived to have “gone soft” on the Šar it would cause great scandal, damaging the reputation of both the Šar and the Ḫá'iṭánu. If after the beating the Šar is teary-eyed, it is celebrated as a good omen. After the beating, the Šar’s bruised and bloody body is marched back down the steps of the Nuḫar-Šúráya, where a semi-circle of ten Mušallimánú cast a healing spell on the Šar and adorn them with a white robe. With a rejuvenated body and a pristine robe, the Ḫá'iṭánu disperse and the Šar walks the two-mile journey back to the Dašarum-Lá-Šanán alone.
