Cedar-rin live in the area of the Lake of Vin-selessa near the great trading roads of the Lacessian Way and Vaganian Way. They build large stone cities of complicated design, and then abandon them for reasons which are not clear. They are large bipeds, with skin protected by tiny scales, and both males and females have horns curling down from the backs of their skulls, though of slightly different shapes. They have a third gender, called drones, and are believed to have a non-verbal method of communication. They hire out as mercenaries and guards in family groups.
