Language: Pedwyrran (universally used as Slang)
A Ped is a person hailing from Pedwyrr. Specifically, it is a casual term, one to be used to refer to people (when within Pedwyrr) or to a friend, neighbour or close relative. In more polite conversation, it is customary to use the terms Pedwyrran or Ped-Pagan (when discussing matters of faith).
Elsewhere in the world, the term is used also as a racial slur (the differentiation being held in tone or context). It is considered especially rude to continue referring to an acquaintance as a Ped once names have been exchanged.
