Aliases: Elessan, Eless, Elesmate


A term for a primarily moirallegic partner, with a secondary sexual partnership involving a close emotional connection or bond of some sort, that is not identified or identifiable as any other relationship time, and very often is inherently tied to the sexual intimacy involved. Intended as parallel to varin as queer-oriented but not queer-exclusive, more descriptive, and potentially less allonormative alternatives to “moirail with benefits.” Elessas make up elessanships and very often experience elessanic attraction to their shendi-partners.
