Species Human/humanoid
About Okuädan  Okuädan is spoken among the people of Oghep-Thut and more generally in the Okuädan-Omun in the west of the Okanydh. It evolved between 2500 and 2000 A.E, and was spoken extensively during the Rivalist Omun Period.  Okuädan evolved from  Muepeton.

A defining feature of  Okuädan is its auxiliary verb system, which involves three gerunds, four tense/aspect auxiliaries, five modal auxiliaries (and their negative forms), a future auxiliary, and two coice auxiliaries (a passive and an active) Another interesting feature is how the language handles "active" verbs as opposed to "passive" ones, that is to say verbs in which the subject is analyzed as the agent (eg. "to run") as opposed to ones in which it is analyzed as a patient (eg. "to believe").
