Notorious racial reputation. Although the females outnumber the males almost 2 to 1, the larger, stronger males dominate all areas of Awaghen society & politics. The strongest males of high social standing may have a harem of 3-10 females. In these harems the females will often be no more than prisoners, let out only at the male’s whims. With all the most powerful males greedily hoarding the females, many of the lower class males are left with none. This leads to a lot of frustrated fighting and subterfuge among the Awaghen in general. Never before has a more scheming, backstabbing society been documented. Ruthless behavior that would be considered criminal on most worlds is accepted on the Awaghen Homeworld… just as long as you can get away with it. If you murder someone you don’t quite care for, you had better be prepared to take on those he is closely allied with as well. It is not common for an Awaghen to literally kill their way to the top. Those that stay in the best positions are very dangerous, paranoid individuals.
