Athel

Also known as “The Spark”. Crudely this translates to sentience, but there are gray areas. It is most commonly used to describe and explain the reluctance that beings have to kill one another. A person might kill an insect, or a cat might kill a mouse, or a rancher might slaughter a cow with no reluctance or moral feeling, because the victims do not have Athel, or El-Athel.
