While reading the GoG, I saw that in Umathela, the malkionist are mostly Sedalpists. And this is very close to the Talar on the Brithini (cannot carry weapons) Also, In Talur, there is a sect of 'Daughters of Manena'. In the Britini Society, the Menena is the woman's caste. Is it just 'luck' or is the link between the 2 cultures stronger than I thought?
if I simplify a little, Umathela is Malkion/Orlanth (Orlanth mainly on the battle field) and Fonrit is Chaos (or Chaos friendly). The conflict is territorial (as in the Season wars), but also religious? Is Fonrit seen as 'Chaos' for the Orlanthists? (a little bit like the Lunar were invaders but also 'Chaos related'). the Slave (Fonrit) vs Freedom (Umathela orlanthists) is obvious. Is there Uroxi in Umathela? Because there is not big Chaos nest close by (except maybe Fonrit)?
In GtG p.625 there's a depiction of the Household of an Umathelan Merchant-Captain. His wife, described as a Kormarkan noblewoman, wears a headdress already used by Iberian women 2,000 years ago, as the one from this stone bust: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lady_of_Elche But instead of drawings and pictures of old sculptures, I have also found pictures of real women incarnating that old goddess.
