The Slave Market of Raej

Centered in the capital of Raej, Kemet, the Slave Market is a sprawling complex. Vendors that sell fruits and souvenirs are sandwiched between the vendors of human flesh. Prices range from expensive for a Landen to ungodly expensive for a member of the Blood with Dark Jewels or Dual Castes. A place where money rules there are certain rules to the Slave Markets that are to be followed.

  • Death of a slave is punishable by a fine. Multiple deaths of slaves, especially children, can see a slaver's ability to sell at the market revoked up to and including the execution of the slave owner. The death of any Queen slave calls for the immediate execution of the slave owner and possibly those who work for him or her.
  • Punishment of a slave cannot result in maiming or permanent injuries. Typically a slave is beaten where clothing can easily hide the bruises.
  • All slaves being sold must be washed and well kept. This only applies to those slaves being sold in the public markets, especially in Kemet.
  • Children cannot be sold as pleasure slaves. There are many ways around this rule though.
  • Native Raejians cannot be made slaves against their will unless they are repaying debts, which requires documentation. The implication of this rule is there are many free persons taken as slaves by merely being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

There is a veneer of civility to the markets that doesn't wholly encompass the trespasses of men and women selling flesh like objects. In ancient times, before the Purge when Askavi ruled, the markets were a dangerous and deadly place where one in three slaves were killed before sold. When Odji Khaldun reinstated slavery, over a decade ago, he did not return to the practices of the Eyrien overlords but instead attempted to make the market viable and civil.

The Slave Market is run by the Head of the Slave Markets but reports still to the Territory Court and Merchant Council. While the Court is typically very hands off about the Market, if any laws of the Territory Court are broken they may step in overruling the Head of the Slave Markets. The Merchant Council is responsible for day to day enforcing fines and permits for selling slaves, they take a cut of this job as well before the profits are sent to the Territory Court. Any breach of the above rules results in a fine for the slave merchant.

One can't forget though, what happens behind closed doors out of the eye of the public is, as ever, a matter between a master and slave.
