Noantri World: Keilians

Here's another page from my abandoned Noantri history. This panel is about the Keilians, an ethnicity of Noantri that gave up modern technology and ways to live in a medieval style, including feudalism and brutal clan and gang warfare. They carry on even in modern cities governed by more advanced ethnic groups. Around this time of year the Keilians hold a great festival, with parades, street performers, games, vendors, feasting, and drinking. Tourists visiting Keilian areas love it. But outside the tourist zones, the Festival is an opportunity to work out the vendettas which have accumulated over the year. After the festivities are over, the non-Keilian police authorities go around the city pulling the dead Keilians off the streets.
