The Ritual of Coadunation is a Shen tradition where the placenta of a newborn is consumed by the eldest living member of the paternal line. This ritual is meant to symbolically join the two families and is especially significant because the Shen are strict vegetarians and abhor eating meat. This is the only time it is considered acceptable to do so.
