The ruemel cloth is a long scarf, typically of silk, with weighted coins on the ends. It is a symbol of the Children of Kina faith, and most followers wear it. In the hands of the Deceiver cult, it is a deadly weapon of assassination by strangulation.
Within the Children of Kina mythology Kina is said to have used a ruemel to strangle the unwary demons she stalked in the early days of the universe. The faith encourages polychromatic scarves and strongly discourages single colors- black MOST strongly- as they are seen as unlucky. The Deceiver Cult often use monochromatic ruemels, with black being reserved for senior members of their sect.
