Sansis Culture & Language

Thanks to Mark Rosenfelder’s Books

Dear cheryl, what the hell is a “Pan”?!

Pan are a Human-Like species.

They have 3 sexes: Male, Female, and Neuter. Sexes are not linked to gender (there are a LOT more genders), and changing sex, or gender, is well seen. there are also Pan with characteristics that don't fit in the 3 sexes.

most females don’t have breasts

They have horns of different types, depending on species.

Their hair is generally long, and provides hit protection.

Their body is hairless.

They have hooves, not feet.

They have human(-ish) hands.

These can be mixed. For example, one of my characters, Claire, is 20% Demon, but another one, Aadlak (the resurrection Pan) is: 18% Demon, 20% Angel, 10% Deer, and 4% Cat.

On Magic:

Magic, for Pan, is just a normal part of their lives, using it for crops (waterbending), cooking (fire generation), sleeping on weird places (pain removal), et caetera.

It is an obligatory subject in most schools.

Some (waterbending, fire generation, and soil fertilization) usually need (not too frequent, but not too infrequent) practice.

note that some are frowned upon, due to them being against the identity or free will of others, those being sexbending another person, or hypnosis, although self-defense hypnosis is taught at schools. (due to the rise of hypnosys knowledge, some use it recreationally)

Countries and Cities of Sansis.

Sansis is an union of 5 Countries, hence the name (“sans” = 5, “is” = country)

the countries (in joining order) are:

  1. adafis
  2. ozedis
  3. insis
  4. sliazis
  5. gujis

here’s a (badly drawn) map:

if you’re using a screenreader, I’m gonna do my best to describe this:
adafis and ozedis are sandwitching insis and sliazis.
Adafis has 3 islands.
Ozedis has one.
Sliazis has a huge island in the north (like denmark and greenland)
Gujis is an island in the middle of nowhere.

Etimologies (in proto-sansis/bumblas):

eventually -iss (modern: -is) turned into a word to describe countries.


Traditional Pan music is played using a reed instrument similar to clarinets called “Chijwoshales” (lit. “blow-sing stick”), a ukelele-like one “wom” (lit. “singing hair”), and a taiko-like instrument called “techar” (lit. “hit skin”/“hit membrane”)

(the instruments described above)

a “recording” (with an EW GOLIATH Taiko, Banjo, and Duduk instead, since those are the closest I could find) can be found in

Biography of a random Pan:

Biography of Ojan:

Ojan was a neuter Pan (12.15% deer, 6.5% demon, 1% cat) born in northern Sliazis, at the point where you’re not sure if it’s Sliazis or Insis. Their Parent (who was neuter, and 24.3% deer), Miin, and their Father, Boons (13% angel, 2% cat), gave them the name Ojan, because the village they were born in was full of leaves (Ojan comes from oldSansis “osa-nu”, leaf child). Ojan strayed away from their parents very early, which was seen as an accomplishment.

Early childhood:
Ojan went to school willingly, since it’s better than human schools, and they taught how to not get scammed while bartering, some basic coin (rocks, to teach) commerce for dealing with foreigners, andsome magic, which Ojan quickly got good at. Ojan had a small group of friends, called Shajan, Anaklun, and Ilovon. Ojan wore a skirt (zhinyojachar) and a tanktop-like shirt (kaadojachar), the typical attire, both made of black wool over leaves, and got trusted more easily, due to skirts being a symbol of innocence. Ojan got severely harmed at the age of 8, which made their friends take them to the healer, Aadlak, in the mountain of Adafis, at it’s highest point, the nearly unpopulated village of Panajukyesh, andOjan got healed quickly, but the face of Aadlak stayed in their memory. Ojan started growing their own crops at 12

Ojan completed school at 14, about the same time as their friends, Shajan, Anaklun, and Ilovon, and they all decided to work on the crops together. As Ojan grew, their curiosity for places out of Sliazis did so as well, so they decided to go to Ozedis, to a beachside village, and started learning how to fish. They were not too good at it and decided to continue with agriculture in their new town, but Anaklun became really skilled at it. Shajan and Ilovon, both trying to be Cooks, Started using Ojan and Anaklun’s ingredients to make food, and teamed up with them. Ilovon started learning how to play the Chijwoshales. One day, they accidentally cast a genderbend spell on Ilovon, but Ilovon, who had never properly learnt magic, really liked her new Female form, and decided to stay that way, not telling anyone thatOjan accidentally did it, instead saying she did it herself, so Ojan wouldn’t take the blame.
As their friendship grew, they grew tighter together, and sometimes hlatu-ed each other, as friends do.

After becoming an adult, Ojan decided that they wanted to mate, and decided to do so with the friend that they most helped, that being Ilovon. Ilovon, at first, was confused as to why, but she accepted, and she impregnated Ojan (the person who asks to mate gets impregnated, regardless of sex) When the baby was born, Ilovon and Ojan both tried help it be more independent, with success, which meant they could be with their friends again.
Ojan’s life was normal from then.

Ojan passed away at 90 years old from old age, and due to it being a natural cause, Aadlak refused to revive them, which caused great sadness to their friends, but they managed to move on, and all(separately) died, some months after.

Biography of Aadlak:

Birth and Childhood:
Aadlak Barhen was born in the unforgiving polar desert of Panajukyesh, where she practically only studied magic, as she had previously shown difficulty with that, and she studied until she could fly, but Aadlak was resillient, and she studied and practiced until she could cast resurrection. As an only child, she didn’t have anyone take care of her, so she strived on her own. Her parents died very early.

Word spread of the healer of Panajukyesh, and she started offering her services in exchange of food. She quickly became popular.

Adulthood (present day):
She learned to collect food from the few existing trees, and stopped charging for her services.

The language

see amirom in the langs page


yes, there was such a thing. it's derived from proto-sansisian. it's not really defined, since most people just use Sansisian

everything is pronounced like in the IPA, except for h (x), b (v), and l (ʎ)

it uses SOV order.

it uses no markers, everything is guessed from context

the -u in verbs is there by influence of Sansisian, it serves no real purpose.

stress falls on the 1st syllable
