[12:08] Felicity Coronet: “I felt her left thigh. Most girls are branded on the left thigh. Perhaps this is because most Owners are right-handed.”
[12:08] Felicity Coronet: “The brand, then, as one controls the slave, may be easily caressed. But her left thigh wore no brand. Her right thigh, too, as I soon noted, did not wear the slave mark, nor did her lower left abdomen.”
[12:08] Wendy Jelasco whispers: Sawubona Rave
[12:08] Felicity Coronet: “These are the three standard marking places, following the recommendations of Merchant Law, for the marking of Kajirae, with the left thigh being, in practice, the overwhelmingly favored brand site.” Fighting Slave of Gor Page 312
[12:08] Felicity Coronet looks to Bali and smiles
[12:09] xSakeenax Resident: look sup to her En
[12:09] Felicity Coronet: It is in that spirit that we seek to mark property of the Wa Ngao Taluna tribe this day.
[12:09] Felicity Coronet: First Girl, make the girl Bali ready.
[12:10] jasmine Chiantelle takes the girl firmly by the arm and leads her to the wooden posts which will secure the girl. Tying each arm, then each leg, the girl is fixed in place and will remain motionless.
[12:10] xSakeenax Resident: looks nervously at her sis
[12:10] jasmine Chiantelle: strips the girl of any covering and reveals the naked beauty which is the girl bali.
[12:11] jasmine Chiantelle takes the silks and folds them neatly palcin to the side
[12:11] jasmine Chiantelle: The girl is here and made ready. she is stripped of clothing and restrained firmly My En’.
[12:11] xSakeenax Resident: takes in a deep breath
[12:11] Felicity Coronet nods and continues
[12:11] Felicity Coronet: While branding with a hot iron is customary in the cities and various brands burned deep into the flesh of property, We choose to mark tribal property with a “knife brand”
[12:12] Felicity Coronet: “Rather like a tattoo, an appropriate design is cut into the thigh of a slave and a colored powder is rubbed into it.” Explorers of Gor page 330.
[12:12] Felicity Coronet: “This day, I will fulfill the task of bestowing the honor of the Wa Ngao Mark of Ownership upon this girl.”
[12:12] Felicity Coronet: Drawing a finely-honed tiny blade, made especially for the task, She steps toward the girl.
[12:13] xSakeenax Resident: takes a breath trys to stay calm as she sees knife
[12:13] Felicity Coronet: Having given deep thought to both design and location She presses Her hand again the outside of the girl’s left thigh, pulling the skin taunt so the skin may be cut with great precision.
[12:13] Felicity Coronet: With this dagger, I shall mark this girl so all she meets will know property belonging to the Wa Ngao Taluna tribe.
[12:13] xSakeenax Resident: holds her breathe
[12:13] Felicity Coronet: She begins to cut the girl’s skin. Slowly She cuts small curves which interlock in design.
[12:13] Felicity Coronet: A small trickle of blood marks each cut.
[12:14] xSakeenax Resident: feels the sting, tearrs fill eyes as proud but pain looks at talune and determined not to cry
[12:14] Felicity Coronet: As She works the blood is wiped clear momentarily with rep cloth and then returns with each stroke of Her dagger.
[12:14] Felicity Coronet: Gradually the design of the mark begins to reveal itself
[12:14] xSakeenax Resident: feels pride
[12:14] Felicity Coronet: Carefully as She works, the symbol of the Wa Ngao Taluna tribe, a Triquetra appears on the girl’s thigh.
[12:14] Felicity Coronet: It is a unique mark long used by the Wa Ngao is found nowhere else in Gor.
[12:15] xSakeenax Resident: a small tear trickle down cheek
[12:15] Felicity Coronet: 1st Girl . . . hand Me the powder
[12:15] jasmine Chiantelle offers En the jar of orange Powder
[12:15] xSakeenax Resident: looks at the crest of tribe and feels so happy and proud as the stinging carries on
[12:15] Felicity Coronet takes the jar with orange powder in hand
[12:15] Felicity Coronet: “With the small knife She gashed my left thigh, making upon it a small, strange design. She then took a powder, orange in color, from the flask and rubbed it into the wound.” Explorers of Gor page 330
[12:16] Felicity Coronet: Satisfied that the cuts have made the mark She wishes, She step back and takes a small vial from Her pouch.
[12:16] Felicity Coronet: Mixing it with the powder from the jar
[12:16] Felicity Coronet: Contained within is a powder made from the same rock used to make the arrowheads which defend the tribe, mixed with a reddish hue from dried larma.
[12:17] xSakeenax Resident: feels the heat from her thigh but still will not allow the tears to fall
[12:17] RavanaTheMean Cobalt sheaths their bow
[12:17] Felicity Coronet: Slowly and with deliberation, She applies the powder to the mark still red with the girl’s blood.
[12:17] Felicity Coronet: The contents mixed with the powder have the ability to stop the bleeding and impart the color which will mark the girl for life
[12:18] Felicity Coronet: Wiping the finished work with rep cloth, She steps back so the Tribe might see the finished work.
[12:18] xSakeenax Resident: feels immense pride as she looks at her thigh
[12:18] Felicity Coronet: “On her thigh, of course, was her brand. Even without the Tribe’s collar, the brand would clearly mark her slave. The collar marks the girl as slave and commonly identifies the Owner. Too, it is generally visible. The knife brand marks her as slave, an emblem of bondage to the Tribe.” Prize of Gor Page 352
