An Imperfect Circle
The City of the Dead where the Order of Embalmers takes the honored dead of the Scavenger Land and beyond. Sijan has existed as a city of tombs since the earliest records of ancient times. Some say the depths of Sijan lead mortals into the Underworld and allow the spirits of the dead to enter Creation.
The Funerist Order
The Funerists of Sijan travel the River Lands tending to the proper rituals to put the dead to rest. They know all the proper rituals to see the dead into the Underworld and to ensure hungry ghosts do not rise. The truly honored dead, or those who's families pay, are embalmed and transported to the catacombs beneath Sijan by funerary barges that ply the tributaries of the Yanazee.
