Book of Law, The
the source of the Singing Mountain clan's basic tenets. The book was created by Allya to describe the ways in which the women of Dathomir should use their power. Foremost among the laws is the tenet, "Never concede to evil." Over time, other women leaders and even other clans modified the book for their own use. If a woman ever broke the laws Allya created, she was exiled from her tribe. The woman could be given a chance to rejoin her group if, after three years in the wilderness, she agreed to once again take up the laws in the book.
