this was the traditional funeral rite of the Sullustan people. It was presided over by a crypt master, and followed a rigid protocol for honoring the deceased. Individual mourners were brought forward to honor the dead based on their social standing and their relationship to the dead. After the crypt master placed a layer of seamweld on the tomb wall, mascs were invited to place a transpariblock into the wall that sealed off the deceased's coffin. Fems then used a weld-rake to smooth out the mortar. In this way, the coffin was sealed into the crypt, yet was visible to future visitors. In general, immediate family were first to place transpariblocks, followed by children living outside the family, warren-clan leaders, blood relatives, closest friends, and corporate representatives of SoroSuub. The final transpariblock was placed by the highest-ranking individual in attendance, who was also required to deliver a brief oration that contained one word for each year of the deceased's age. This was not a eulogy, but a message to the mourners from the speaker's heart.
