Unfettered Ones are individuals who went through the rites of the Loresraat but decided to devote themselves to a single mystery of the earth, rather than becoming a Lord. Once given the Rites of Unfettering they were freed from all responsibilities of Lordship and allowed to carry out their devotion alone. Due to their solitude many rumors have grown concerning them.
Some say that some of the Unfettered have learnt the secrets of dreams, others great healing arts, others can talk to animals and call them when in need.
Those who wish to become an Unfettered One must undergo the Rites of Unfettering, the lyrics go as follows:
- Free -
- Dream that what is dreamed will be:
- Old eyes clasped shut until they see,
- And sing the silent prophecy -
- And be -
