"On Akkadia the Pu'aliuai the blood flower, is both beautiful and strange. It is fairly common throughout the islands of Akkadia. If you look at the flower, the petals always seem to be only on one side. How that came to be is a story and it starts like this.

It is said that N'ialani was a beautiful woman of high rank within one of the Guild Houses. Easily to be selected as the next mother of the house. She fell in love with a lowly farmer but it was not to be as her Guild Mother had other plans.

The farmer knew what fate beheld for the two of them, and so he picked the most beautiful blood flower blossom for Ni'alani for her hair but before giving it to her, he tore it in two pieces. One half he said he would keep ever on his person to remember her. She vowed the same.

Even the nearby plants were saddened by the scene, and the very next day they began to bloom with only half of their petals in honor of the separated lovers. Too this day though the blood flower, the Pu'aliuai, still only grows with petals to one side in remembrance."
