Urban Hvetshran is what hvetshranologists call Hvetshran individuals that do not live in their clans nor wander around, but that decide to reside among humans - not necessarily in a city: a town or village, or even a hide-out close to human settlements counts as urban in this case. Whether or not the specific Hvetshran chose to live this way or not is out of the question.


Physical disadvantageEdit

This case is mostly a shift in attitude from wanderer to urban. Hvetshran who hit puberty or who are old of age get difficulties with hunting all on their own, and live off human's effort. However, most of them stay out of densily inhabited areas, since this would be too dangerous.

Interest in mankindEdit

Some Hvetshran take an interest in mankind as an exoticity or a species to identify with. Being accepted by humans sometimes might even be their desire, they might prefer human partners over Hvetshran, or they just feel a need to get to know that other culture better.


Even though Hvetshran do not usually punish their clan members with exile, a fair number of urban Hvetshran have left their clan because of the social pressure they felt, as if they were a burden to their clan members. This can be because they disagree with the spirit that lives in a Hvetshran clan, because they are disabled, because they prefer to remain single.

It also regularly happens a Hvetshran is unable to adapt to clan life or even find a clan to join, because of his or her background or past. This happens also in the case the individual is a hybrid, half Hvetshran and half human or any other combination, or when a full Hvetshran has not been raised in a clan environment. 



A barrier a lot of Hvetshran will have is that of language: with a clan background, they are not familiar with human languages, which are often completely different from Hvetshrenu syntax and grammar. Even though body language is easy to take over, a first concern would be to understand the human vocabulary, which is much harder to pick up.

This however goes the other way around as well. When urban Hvetshran want to fit back in the Hvetshran clan, is the language. When a Hvetshran has been raised in an urban environment, they might not pay attention to the gestures when trying to learn Hvetshrenu, or when they are not raised in Slovakia, they might not even understand Khujmül.


Due to very changing conditions, urban Hvetshran's expected life span varies wildly: having the risk of getting caught and killed, a lot of them die before the age of fifty; on the other hand however, those who manage to hide decently and maintain more luxury than clan Hvetshran have, may live well over eighty or ninety years of age.
