Methu, Clan of the Hammer
Clan Methu (MEH-thih) is generally looked down upon by virtually all other Var. The Methu are not known for having any particular skills or powers, and are considered to be rejected by Priddyn. They do not share the same tie to the Earth as the rest of the Var do, and cannot use magic at all.
They are generally laborers, miners, blacksmiths (Though not often weaponsmiths or armorsmiths), rank and file soldiers, and other low skill jobs. The Methu generally resent the two clans possessing some measure of innate magic, the Anweledig and the Caregan.
The Methu tend to be of average height and build for Var, but have white or light grey hair even as youngsters, and a pale fleshy skin tone unusual among the ruddy and stone-like Var.
They tend to be less affluent than other Var, so dress as best they can on a budget, without any particular pattern or preference. They also dont put any special emphasis on facial hair, and the menfolk wear or dont wear a beard as they see fit, though lambchops are somewhat common amongst them.
The Methu can be somewhat petty; they've been looked down upon for so long they've become a little overly sensitive about it and demand recognition for every minor accomplishment beyond the norm.
As a Clan they are always trying to win more acceptance and sometimes they go about this by bringing up the mistakes of other Clans, which of course does not endear them to the other Clans.
The Methu Ceidwad is chosen by vote among the Methu elders. Any Methu older than 250 years can vote for the Ceidwad. A new Ceidwad is chosen when the current Ceidwad dies, steps down, or is becomes unpopular enough or senile enough that the elders decide to declare a new election.
