Circassians live by one rule: Loyalty. Honor is preserved by loyalty. Circassian men believe ones honor is his wife, loyalty to her is keeping ones family name to the highest standards. Circassians pride stems from their honor and the protection of family, making Loyalty the base of their beliefs. Circassian loyalty is an unbroken code. Honor, protection, and pride are all pillars of family beliefs yet all depend on loyalty to make each pillar stronger.
