Child of the Feather
according to the religion of the Cosmic Balance, families were required to have children in pairs, in order to help maintain the balance of the galaxy. Under the Rule of Feather and Bowl, each pair of children was given an aptitude test during their teenage years, with the more-promising child being given a white feather. Then known as a Child of the Feather, the teenager was allowed to remain in the Bakuran society and received educational funding from the Zanazi. This balanced out the relative poverty experienced by the Child of the Bowl. However, the Child of the Feather could look forward to living in relative poverty in the afterlife, thereby ensuring the continued balance of the galaxy.
