Culture, History and Legend
At Rivenleaf University, one’s attire signals many things. Robes, armbands, and waistbands all come in different colours which communicate rank and specialisation.
A sulphur armband and a pale jade waistband, for example, would be worn by a novice at the university, where knots on the armband spell out a student’s specialisation. Waistbands are also practical – they can be used to hold knotting and sketching material – and there is a tradition of adding a daily stitch to one’s waistband at the end of every school day, to mark one’s progress.
As for the official uniform robes, the senior students wear sulphur such, whereas junior students wear marble.
