High Cant
Of the three native tongues of the Haedrasian people, High Cant is the most revered and guarded. The tongue of the holy texts of Haederas, High Cant sees use only in religious chronicle and ceremony, and in the craft of storytellers who prefer the beautiful and nuanced details of the tongue when composing poetry, or relating the ancient tales of the Haedrasian people. While outsiders assume High Cant to be similar to Cant, due to a shared alphabet and sound, it is in fact quite distinct - having both vocabulary and conventions entirely its own.
