Thilians are indeed fond of their bodies, but not as deviant as the Anodians. Here we see the anodian empress, Liphymeki, and her loyal
attendant, Peluzipha. They are performing a popular and respected ritual called "Abdominal Allegiance". It is performed when the volunteer
is devoting herself to protect and serve her chosen mate. It is a proven phenomenon that Thilians who have formed a such allegiance with
ther mate will sense if she is being faced by an imminent threat.
The procedure is carried out is when the becoming protector gently moves her head towards the most distended part of the abdomen and
nuzzles the belly. She keeps her face partially buried in her belly for some time until she sinks into an affectionate trance which bonds her
senses with her mate. To make a proper allegiance, her belly should be filled with a rememberable meal. Like cinnamon rolls, for example.
And this will the protector begin to taste in her mouth when her face have been buried long enough in her belly. When this have been sensed,
the protector is now able to feel and tell when her mate is in need of her.
The ritual can also be performed multiple times, and it should be if Peluzipha is going to properly attend to her master.
