Chaka

A Chaka is a strip or band (usually of fine leather) marked with many chop-mark glyphs. Normally chaka are worn as a belt or more commonly over one shoulder. The Chaka is used to display the accumulated honor of the wearer. Each glyph is given as a mark of honor. Marks are never given for trivial reasons as the glyph stands as a testament that the giver holds honor with the receiver. If the chaka owner commits some dishonorable act, all who have given him testament share in his dishonor. Razzian society is quick to judge one by his friends, the chaka makes this an easy task. The first glyph will identify the owner of the chaka, all other will be set below or beside it. The is a tradition of replacing a chaka at the beginning of each year. There is often frantic posturing to gain access to important people in hopes that they will bestow a chop-mark glyph.
