The Mothkela dwell within pyramid-like structures. Their people are a superstitious and religious lot, often believing in meditation to receive mental healing. Their wings are bioluminescent capable of gliding, penetrating darkness as they specialize in wielding light magic to imbue their wooden weapons and projectiles with arcane energy. Their religious structure is ancestral worship; they believe that when one dies, their soul goes on a 3,000-year journey; if the bodies are not mummified, the soul will become lost and become a djinn or nefarious apparition, haunting the locals. They mainly trade coffee, sugar, as well as milk from the production of their cattle. The milk comes from a giant sloth species they herd across the thick growths of their jungle homeland. While primitive in many areas, they have extensive knowledge pertaining to the use of alchemical reagents for healing properties; it is said they can even restore severed limbs through an elaborate ritual.
Within their culture, a larva hits adulthood at 14 years of age, in which case they look to the moon cycle and stars to determine their role within society. The Mothkela believe that all life originated on the moon and that the evils of this world are due to their kind not being able to perceive the dark side of the celestial body. Whenever the tribe has a severe loss in battle, plague, famine, or drought, they will sacrifice the hearts of willing servants to placate the lunar mother. They are a warrior culture, preferring spears and wooden axes as they find that the sacred barks of their jungle seem to amplify their light better than weapons of steel. Their political structure is matriarchal; men are seen as warriors and toilers of the jungle. In contrast, women run the economic, spiritual, and political spheres of their society. They are the most loyal and oldest member of the Verdant Dynasty.
