Two Races of Men Emerge
And so it was that Taran and Aya fled into Vaya, being forever banished from the Valley.  And they and their future descendants became known as the Benudim, which came to mean 'cursed ones' in the common language of that day.
And so it came to pass that the curse had effect on the Benudim such that they aged and some grew sick, though slow was the advancement of the evil upon their bodies at first.   And so they lived on in Vaya with their fallen parents, peopling that land which became known as "Cursed".  And the land of Vaya became feared by the Benél, for it came to be believed that Aél was a wrathful god, who resided in the Valley which lay hidden in the mountains east of Vaya.
Now the Benél were those sons and daughters of Taran and Aya born to them before the curse and before the banishment, for it was found that they and their offspring did not suffer from the curse of the Benudim.  Indeed, the Benél did not age, nor did they grow sick, though the soil of their land did grow hard, and the beasts of their realm became violent.  And the Benél blamed the Benudim for what had befallen upon their world.  And they disdained them.

Great to see another update! And an incredibly mystifying and intriguing one at that! So there’s a group of people that haven’t physically (and spiritually?) been affected by the curse, yet living in the fallen world, dealing with the consequences. Disdain is quite understandable (and maybe even an understatement). These two groups wouldn’t happen to be the “Sons of God” and the “Daughters of Man” would they? Either way, I can’t wait to see how all this come into play later.
