Too many holdings have been lost in recent years, too many lords killed, their people rendered homeless. […] The only choice for many of us is to become yondri-gon, threshold-dwellers, in the house of some lord who often makes us pay our way by leasing us out as warriors, craftsmen, or scholars. Some of us go for years without seeing the threshold we supposedly occupy or gaining any pledge of eventual acceptance there.
– Marc, God Stalk, "Chapter 8: Voices of the Past"
Yondri-gon is a Kens term meaning "threshold dweller". More commonly known as yondri for short, they are Kendar that only have a temporary place with a Kencyr house.
