The Hesch are taller than we are, and all of them that I have seen have black skin and feathers, and long, thick bills which they clack loudly when they are displeased – which seems to be often. Their clothing is formed from broad strips of gauze – sometimes black, sometimes dark green, sometimes a combination of the two. Their long legs and clawed feet go bare.  Gredin had an unfortunate encounter with their head trader, Nitikikani, at the Traders’ Market, and we are facing stiff consequences as a result.
