lan and bussan

It is lan for the Medusa of Cazhaak Draal to petrify. There is little moral distate for the freezing of non-intelligent creatures or non-medusa humanoids, though a medusa who is constantly using their deadly gaze for small slights or trivialities might be seen as lacking in restraint or finesse. Still, almost no medusa would shun another for petrifying a lesser being in a fit of pique or annoyance.

It is seen as akin to assault for a medusa to petrify another, but it is relatively easy to reverse and thus is an annoyance and a reason for a personal grudge rather than a serious crime.

It is bussan for medusae to destroy other medusae, especially those who have been petrified. Destroying a statue created by another medusa or a minion of another medusa is practically theft. Destroying petrified beings - even those petrified by creatures other than medusae and, therefore, much more difficult to reverse - is discouraged by medusa society, feeling wasteful and slightly taboo. Arranging statues of foes, enemies, and even hapless bystanders as tasteful home decorations is, however, not at all frowned upon and, in fact, quite encouraged by medusa society.
