Charr names are fairly flexible. Most start with a sharp or strong sound though like Rytlock or Kalla. Males continue with the sharp sounds such as the T and K. Females have softer sounds throughout the rest of their names such as 'alla'. There are plenty exceptions to these rules though and are more like recomendations.
More importantly is the charr's surname. This is a mix of two different words and is used to identify the charr with their warband. One word will be a word shared by all members of their warband. The other word is one that the charr picks for themself, usually a word they feel defines them in some way. The order of these words must be the same for all members of a warband, however different warbands can use different orders. Kalla Scorchrazor is from the Scorch warband while Rytlock Brimstone is from the Stone warband. All members of Kalla's warband will use Scorch for their first word while all members of Rytlock's warband will use Stone for their second word.
Charr have a lifespan thats nearly the same of a human, sixty to eighty years. However they are a race of warriors and charr who die of old age are rare to see as most die on the battlefield.
Charr reach maturity significantly faster than humans though. At age one they are fairly independant and sent to fahrars. At age fifteen they are considered fully grown and are usually soldiers by that time.
Partents: The mother will usually stay and nurse a charr until age one. The father is only involved if he chooses to be.
Mates: Charr will occassionally mate for life. However most charr will mate as a recreational activity, or to further their legion and or lineage. Charr who stay with one partner are rare to see, although it does happen.
Warbands: A charr's warband is their family. They are raised together as soon as they enter the fahrar and form close ties with one another. Some may become mates, others may form deep sibling connections. Regardless, a warband is like family to charr and they stand with eachother no matter what.
Chain of Command: Something all charr are taught to follow and respect. The lower ranks will accept and follow orders given by their superiors. The most common chain (from order of lowest rank to highest) is: Gladium, Soldier, Legionnaire, Centurion, Tribune, Imperator, and Khan-Ur.
Charr are divided into four legions. Iron, Blood, Ash, and Flame. The Flame Legion is the main antagonist legion. The remaining three are not a single military unit, but they do have an alliance with one another.
Iron: The legion of engineers. Iron Legion uses advanced, industrialized weaponry. This legion is commonly seen fighting with siege weaponry.
Blood: The legion of warriors. Rather than known for firepower, Blood Legion is known for its soldier's combat prowess. Instead of heavy weapons, they fight with sheer strength and numbers.
Ash: The legion of assassins. They are just as deadly as the other two although use much subtler tactics. Ash utilizes soldiers as spies and scouts. They believe in ending a war before it begins through assassination.
