Once the warrior Tasiver Tod was beset by a hungry oswagi. She thrust her sword blade down the gullet of the beast and managed to slay it, but when she withdrew her sword she found her gauntlet had been chewed through and she had lost the skin from her fingers. From that day forward a close call is often referred to as escaping by the ‘skin of your knuckles.’
The term “aggressive sword” is used among the Muvari and other of the Martian Tribes to describe someone with a fighting temperament; someone who possesses bangstry (the skill of masterful violence); a person who will challenge another to duel with little or no provocation or someone who can always be found in the forefront of battle.
