The Selka invaded Braided Shore several generations ago but very little is known about them. Most of what folk in Braided Shore know about them is based on what they barter with. They bring spices and cheese, for example, but it is unclear whether the raw ingredients and seeds are Selka in origin, or if they simply use what Braided Shore provides.
Selka in Braided Shore often love the smell of wood, which might – at least for very old Selka, or those who have arrived recently – come from a sense of homesickness. Cedar wood and cedar wood perfume come from the Selka homeland, for example.
Selka are generally secretive about their appearance, and hide underneath oversized dresses and gloves. They all have the same eye colour, which is an intense and vibrant cinnabar. The fact that they are smaller in stature than Asken folk sometimes makes others mistake them for children.
If you find something made of glass in Braided Shore, it is most definitely of Selka make. The sand in Braided Shore cannot be made into glass, and no one but the Selka has brought it there.
