When it is used in civilization of Tal routinely, "Judda" is the nature that Eltus race has potentially. When they use it for an individual, they point to the specific form including a deviant beautiful person. Basically, Judda's concept is completely different from the attraction for copulation of each species as "Judda" don't mean adjective for sexual charm like "Sexy" and so on. Its nuance includes concept that is similar to "holy" if anything. In current determined canon, it is used among Nevrea and Gold Ring city. It is not sure which it came from wherever or just coincidence. There's some different concepts between Nevrea and Gold Ring. It is an object of faith in Nevrea, but it is similar to idolatry in Gold Ring.
If someone plunder or injure Judda, it will be treated as heavy crime.

Standards of Judda
General conditions of person to be chosen as a Judda;
- A whole is close to regular streamline.
- Color is gold, or rich green, or silver, or sand color, etc...
- Build is not too big.
- Fur is dense and regulated well.
- Youthful like a child.
- Have a beautiful luster.
But it is recognized by the tacit knowledge by the sense of each culture. Therefore the clear standard for it is not established. Also about the color, there is a recognition difference according to each civilization. But generally, "gold" and "beautiful green like plants with chlorophyll" are acknowledged as "colors of absolutely valuable things", due to "Green plants" that are furiously precious existences in Tal.
Judda in Gold Ring
The "Judda system" is present in Gold Ring. The Judda in GR has an official position and a specific role, and lives in Gold Ring central area where important buildings like government administration centers are found more commonly. The Judda person does not weigh in on the government affairs however, and merely acts as a public symbol of grace and beauty. Most of those who become the Judda are male nevrean, though it is possible for a sergal or agudner to become the Judda if they fulfill all requirements for such a position.
The system of the Judda can be most easily compared to the modern Japanese Emperor system. The difference between the Japanese Emperor and the Judda, however, is that the Judda has no right to governing the people, and is instead treated as a public idol and the greatest living treasure of Gold Ring. Additionally, the Judda is not a hereditary position, making the decision of who the new one is not a matter of lineage.
The official GR Judda in the modern generation is Quu. However, this will most likely be changed in a fixed period of time.
After the world war which finished in year 40 of the Rain Calendar, people took up the Judda concept with more respect and purpose due to the influence that the last of the western sergal survivors had. It was meant to serve as a reminder of how tragic war is, and why it should be avoided. However, even then the concept of the Judda does not have a specific purpose, and some hold on to it just for fun.
Thanks to the respect the Judda carries, robbers can't go near the center street of Gold Ring where where the nobles and bureaucrats live because such robbers fear the Judda. For various reasons, the Judda is able to hold this much influence even in the modern era.
Judda in other areas
The sense called "Judda" has the long history. It is a common sense in the whole planet Tal across all race. Even in the area where there is not the word "Judda", there are not big differences of the culture recognition. As a matter of course talyxians also have similar sense to it. And even primitive creatures may recognize it.
In Nevrea land that is homeland of nevreans, gender role of males had done evolution including Judda form. Therefore the role of Judda in Nevrea is slightly different from Gold Ring.
Miscellaneous Judda knowledge
In Northern sergals, there are many ones that have Judda form. Especially Leeric is representative example of those, but he suffers a loss for his personality.
That aside, General Rain willingly aims at a boys who have Judda form due to her lust for beautiful things. Moreover, Judda ones are attractive for a man-eater talyxians also.
