About Zondulen
Zondulen, a daughter language of the Jizhar, spoken across most of Sintren, and in some parts of Mez and southern Konalapi.

Thousands of years in the making, the Zondulen language is as diverse as the people who speak it, ripe with idiosyncrasies and flavor across the Sintren cluster. Most dialects and accents have diverged far from the original Jizhar,. For many who speak Zondulen, especially in the eastern and southern parts of Sintren, the Jizhar is scarcely recognizable as an ancient form of their native tongue.
But there is one place the language has stayed frozen in time, preserved by the hostile environment of a two-thousand-year war.
With little influence from the rest of Auntcarroo, Suhar's dialect of Zondulen is believed to be the purest form of the Element's Language, still alive and well, with the Jizhar seeming little more than an exotic accent. Learning it is said to open a world of spirituality and understanding.
