There is no real social stigma attached to suicide. A 'mercy draught', a painless and quick drug that causes death, can be administered as deemed necessary by the Healer, their Master, and the patient. However, the Healer should if possible consult with the patient and offer counselling. If the patient cannot be consulted due to incompetency/insanity or unconsciousness, it is up to the Healer and their Master. The Lord Holder may not become involved as it is a private matter. Suicide is expected, but not actively encouraged, when a rider loses his dragon.


Bodies are buried in rock cairns or under stone tablets so as not to leave the body exposed. The preferred method of burial is cremation. Sea folk usually have solemn sea burials for their dead.
