Ragnans (ラグナ人 Raguna-jin?) are natives of the planet Ragna. They are amphibious humanoids, roughly as agile as humans on land (where they spend most of the time), but they can move quicker and breathe underwater. Their main distinguishing features compared to humans are the gills that run along their necks near the shoulders, fins that extend from about the elbows and webbed digits.

They are one of the Children of Protoculture.

HistoryEdit

Prior to colonization, the Planet Ragna seemed to have little to no landmasses, so the Ragnans were mostly seabound along with other indigenous creatures around them.

After the arrival of Island Jackpot Emigration craft, the planet underwent several changes, especially in topography. It is unclear whether or not there were any disagreements or conflicts in between, but by 2067, the Ragnans have become accustomed to life with humans, Zentradi and other races that were part of the fleet.

CultureEdit

Though now used to being on land, the Ragnans still have an intimate connection to the sea. As a result, majority of them now reside in houseboats, turning them into a seafaring people.

The typical Ragnan diet consists of other sea creatures. Their main staple is the jellyfish, which also serves as a cultural symbol. Certain Ragnan delicacies may not look appetizing for some, but many have taken a liking to them.

A lot of Ragnans make their living as merchants, evident from the large number of market streets around the city. Their wares range from food to electronics and even extends to novelty items like "Ragnan Fins" which are advertised to turn anyone into a Ragnan.[1]

They take pride in their culture and exhibitions for certain practices like folk dances are held publicly on a regular basis. One notable traditional Ragnan celebration in particular is the Jellyfish Festival. This event is held during the first full moon in September when jellyfish come to the surface to lay eggs. It is said that a couple that confesses their love to each other underneath the floating jellyfish swarm will stay together for life.

In death, a miniature ship is made for the soul of the person to ride on. The loved ones of the departed drink and reminisce on a nearby coast, later sending off the soul to sea with farewells. Once relieved of sin and pain, the soul is believed to be reborn as a jellyfish.[2]
