A type of belt, generally worn over the shoulders and made of dog leather, used to harness and holster weapons. Most commonly used with swords, many baldrics in Nasheen look more like harnesses, with a sword sheath and two dagger sheaths at the back and gun holsters at either hip. Many are custom made by their owners to suit particular weapons and fighting styles. It is common for women to take the personalized baldrics of those they have bested. (org. Latin. balteus https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baldric ) . From GOD'S WAR: Though sex between two men was not only discouraged, but illegal, what passed for sex between women was actively celebrated, and Nyx used sex as freely and easily as any other tool on her baldric.
