Mythical/historical character from Prydaen history. Cemsiat was a Prydaen Hunter who broke the law of the Triquetra by killing Tagol. His story is portrayed in the book "Without my Pride". Tradition holds that the song "A Mother's Lament" was written about Cemsiat by his mother.
Cemsiat was condemned by Demrris to walk the lands alone, never again to feel the comfort of the Pride. Since that time, any Prydaen who slays one of our own is considered his kin and also labeled "Cemsiat".
