New Colchis: People and Culture
Abroad: How do they behave away from home?
Since the rest of the Universe is generally inhabited by sorcerers and slaves of the spirit world, Wheelies on foreign worlds tend to travel in groups, for protection and safety. Particularly religious Colchians will also sing, ring bells and perhaps dance, in order to ward off the evils that surround them.
The Spirit Time is particularly worrying for Wheelies who live far from New Colchis. Without the widespread festivities, they believe the night to be alive with evil against which they have little defence. Most religious Colchians who live on other worlds choose to absent themselves rather than face the danger.
Each World has its own Wheel, which follows the seasons in each of the hemispheres. It is therefore quite easy to avoid the Spirit Time by moving across the equator twice a year.
