Pirates of Skyview
Honor and Status
Amongst the Flatlanders, breaking through the Great Barrier Storm is considered a high honor, and earns the moniker of ‘Sunbreaker’, for finally being able to see and feel the like of the suns unhindered. Such a moniker is meaningless to Skylanders, obviously, and can often be a target of scorn or hatred by residents of the Hollows.
Many religious orders view it as a divine experience, and charter pilgrim ships to take their devotees through the deadly storm at great risk.
Some Flatlander and Uplander noble houses even require their principle members to be Sunbreakers to gain key positions.
