Carneira, which means "first" in the Old Tongue, is a Malkieri term used to mark a person's first lover.

ExplanationEdit

This tradition dates back more than a thousand years in Malkier. Men are chosen by their carneira, while women choose theirs. After the couples' first night together, the woman hires a team of female barbers to cut the man's hair to his shoulders. He must then sit at her feet and braid it for her. This lock of hair is called the daori. If the woman wishes, she can take hold of the daori and gain advantage over the man until she gives it to his bride.

ExamplesEdit

Lan Mandragoran's carneira was Edeyn Arrel, as seen in New Spring.
