Many Telelelenes choose to go to their grave nude. Indeed, it is common for anyone who would be buried clothed, or for temples that would permit such a thing, to be suspected of low moral character. This opinion is justified by a story that once, in the far past, it was common for people to be buried clothed. But thieves would steal the clothes (sometimes the blame is placed on temples, or relatives of the deceased) and sell them. The fluids used in embalming would soak into the clothes, and the new owners would often get sick or die.
