Ayloi
Weapon, Aslan

Aliens who live within Aslan cultures may have to take part in duels with Aslan. In order that such events are fair and balanced most interpreters of tradition allow humans the use of artificial substitute for claws.

Asian collectively call such weapons ayloi, or false dewclaws. The same word is often extended to mean any knife-like weapon, since these are rare among Aslan.

They are a variety of different ayloi, such as Aloi, Eakya, Zawashi, Kalesha', Hoyeko.
