|How different would Pagus' life be if he was born an albino?|
|Just think what it may have been like if|
Pagus was Albic.
There are a couple of these species that I've come across so far: the Jhana and the Albic Qsiti. The Jhana are a very primitive species living in the wilderness. They wield various weapons, can use magic, and dress in simple garbs. Meanwhile, the Ablic Qsiti are an albino offshoot of the Qsiti species, somewhat lizard-like creatures who normally integrate well into the society of this world, yet their albino brethren have chosen to shun their counterparts, and the rest of society as well, usually living in subterranean regions like caves and dungeons.
Both of these races are obviously fairly advance, certainly to the point of developing their own societies, using magic, forging weapons, and the like. Hell, the Jhana even have shaman, which suggests at least a basic form of religion within their culture. These people may not be commanding mighty Remnants, or building grand metropolises that people from around the world will want to visit, but they still show all the signs of being a functional society of sentient beings, certainly significantly above that of a wolf or a vulture. Yet here people are, chopping them up, rummaging around their corpses, and helping themselves to whatever bones, goo, and the like they think may be useful.

|Rush and the gang massacre some|
The whole practice just seems so macabre. I'd be fine with something more traditional like hunting for wolf pelts to make a cloak, perhaps killing a raptor to make a bone spear, maybe using manticore guts for some sort of potion or elixir. The Last Remnant's society just takes things way too far, hunting the Jhana, Albic Qsiti, and other races as well in order to use their innards for various concoctions. Does labeling them all as "Beastmen" act as a means of othering these creatures, making folks feel not so bad about the atrocities that they're committing?
|Organ harvesting time!|
Anyway, enough of chopping up sentient beings and making off with their innards. Next update, it's Nagapur, side quests, and, well, harvesting sentient beings because I need to upgrade my sword... Until then! \(^_^)y
