Tenach

Article written by Uziel


Tenach is an honored position amongst the tribes of the Uigan, and is effectively someone who serves as the personal bodyguard to the Tegin of a tribe. A tenach swears an oath to their Tegin, to serve them even if it leads to their own death. In return, tenachs are allowed the use of the Tegin's yurt, as well as second choice in everything (food, horses, loot) after the Tegin, except for women. Tenachai led chaste lives, never taking women to their beds.

In the case where a Tenach fails his lord and the Tegin is struck down, the Tenach has three tasks to fulfil.

1. End the suffering of the Tegin by ending their life.
2. Take the life of the person who struck the Tegin.
3. Take their own life.
