About Atruozan The language is spoken by magical vampires with a close-to-nature culture (in my personal Earth AU).

It is also the official language of the polar country of Translira on Sahar, which lines up with the colder and arctic environment the magical vamps that speak the language are in my personal AU.

It is extremely fusional, with most grammatical weight placed on the extensive morphology.

Fun facts about  Atruozan :
-Overall word order is S > O (explained down below), and the overall word order is generally free otherwise
-All statements must have S before O, because when O precedes S, the statement becomes a question
-Very rigid pronoun preclitic order that goes directly before the verb unless asking a question
-Mostly head-inital, with a quite rigid adjective order containing 11 "slots"
-"Predicative adjectives" are placed after the noun, with the "to be" verb following it
-Has 12 noun cases
-Existance of a Construct State, rather than a Genitive case
-Has 6 (or, depending on how you count, 8) pronoun cases
-Reflexive and Reciprocal constructs are expressed through use of a pronoun "case"
-There is an Imperative pronoun
-Pronouns decline for the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 5th and Internal persons
-Nouns and their adjectives also decline for 4 genders: Masculine, Feminine, Animate, Inanimate
-Plurality is only distinguishable in speech for Determiners (Articles) and Verbs
-Nom-Acc alignment
-Trill and dental heavy phonology
-5 verbal moods and a maximum of 8 tense-aspects, comprising of 3 degrees of past remoteness
-An extremely morphology-heavy grammar

It is in no way complete, but I am currently making a proper up to date documentation of the lang here. Anything on it that contradicts with the cws documentation overrules the latter (except phonology, which I need to transfer over) : Atruozan documentation.
