Duke Match is the grand arbiter of matters of shame and guilt in Barb Aria,
and head magistrate of the territories emotion-based judicial system. It resides by the peaceful isolated northern border.
It gathers the cumulative guilt from the citizens of Barb Aria and imbues it into his wooden body. When it has had too much he self-immolates,
burning away the population’s self inflicted pain. For a while it's spirit stands strong and clean, until he needs to reconstitute and start the process all over again.
