*Calling Name:  This is a relatively short name that will attract the attention of the dufiro across vast distances.  It is like requesting a meeting. The Dufiro is not compelled to answer.  It is considered rude amongst dufiro to use the calling name casually since once spoken the dufiro's attention is briefly taken.  This leads to what non-dufiro races might consider a nervous tick, as the dufiro might pause briefly in a conversation when the name is spoken millions of shadows away.

*Binding Name: This name longer then the summoning name but is nearly always included in the tome.  It is the Name that must be used to bind the dufiro to an item.  If used after a bargain has been struck the reading of the name is simple.  If the binding is unwilling the dufiro will fight it from its summoning circle and it often is a battle of wills, psyche, and powers, to bind the dufiro.

===Summoning===
The writing of tomes is a vitally important cultural element of Dufiro society.  If the crux of Dufiro society iis advancement then the tome is the sign a dufiro wishes to advance. A ritualist with the tome may study it till they can intone the name perfectly to summon the dufiro.  A dufiro will have a summoning book for each race though summoning a dufiro with a tome for a lesser race of its path is dangerous.  Think of a Tome as their business card.  Think of the tome as a resume. 
 
 
 
A tome will include many things. It will include all 4 of their names.  It will include the powers one might gain by binding them.  It will include their adventures.  It includes their unbound powers.  It may inclue their equipment.  It may include food and drink prefferances and preferences of many different kinds as clues for what to offer them.

===Reputation===
As can be seen the races of the Dufiro are potent creatures as allies, enemies, bound willingly or unwillingly. Their reputation is usually very important since it may lay heavily on their chances of being allowed a Race ritual.  It reflects on their offspring and attracting mates.  It may effect their admittance to various associations.

Lastly, it tells how reliable and trustworthy they are.  Threatening a Dufiro's reputation is a serious matter.
