The spiritual leaders known as the Flame Seers are valued for their preservation of the Thalerith’s oral tradition, however they are not related or connected to any particular god, nor do they claim to be divinely guided. They often serve as spiritual guides in the day to day struggles of the Thalerith, leaving theology matters and worship to the priests of a given faith. They dress in fire-tinged light robes, and even scar their pale skins with fire burns. Most Thalerith, even as a nocturnal culture, have developed a somewhat bronze skin. However, those that undergo the initiation of a Flame Seer often grow as pale as the whitest of sands, and the oldest of Flame Seers are known for losing their regular sight at very advanced ages. The Flame Speaker serves as the leader of the Flame Seers.
