UrRu Coat

UrSu the Master's coat.

The urRu Coats were garments worn by the urRu, resembling a cross between a coat and a saddle blanket.[1] The coats were fashioned by urUtt the Weaver, who modeled them on the Tree of Life.[2] They were fashioned by a system of knotting threads, which formed patterns representing the wearer's thoughts,[1] as well as acting as a record of the wearer's past. When an urRu died, the coat would become brittle and collapse, having lost all the thoughts within its weaving.[2]
