HhoLevari are an adaptable, metamorphic people renowned as courtesans, diplomats, and negotiators. They are the quintessential social chameleon, figuratively and literally. Physical love and affection are a big part of the HhoLevari life. Aspects of pure hedonism and general pleasure are what the people are known for. One Human ambassador described a full body massage by the HhoLevari ambassador as "Absolutely pure bliss... the best two hours of my life." The HhoLevari follow a large pantheon of deities, most of which involve some aspect of wellbeing and pleasure. The queen of the HhoLevari deities is ShenSharae, The Mother of All Pleasure. Her doctrines involve the "spreading of the principles of goodness and pleasure to all beings." The HhoLevari are very open and liberal minded. Their way of life has put them at odds with several other species over the years, most notably the Borria. The conflict between the Borria and the HhoLevari lasted more than 430 years (on and off), with the Borria seeking complete genocide. It was only through intervention of the UA that the HhoLevari society survived. The Borria government withdrew their application for membership to the UA over the incident.

The HhoLevari government is one of ancestral monarchy, with the genetic lines of the rulers going back centuries. The only way one can go into politics is by being born into a political family, or by marrying into one. Arranged marriage is very common among the HhoLevari, and a powerful man or woman may have a harem of both males and females.

Example of HhoLevari metamorphic ability:
As the man watched, the sultry alien woman dropped off a drink for one patron seated on a grav-stool at the bar, and then walked over to another. As she began to make some flirtatious overtures to the customer, her skin visibly lightened, and her long, straight hair turned from pale blonde to a wild and fiery red. Her already generous bust visibly increased two cup sizes, and her hips rounded to a much fuller appearance. The patron smiled in response. The man then realized that the woman was a HhoLevari shapeshifter, able to change their appearance intuitively to whatever those they dealt with responded to in the most positive fashion. The barfly paid her for the drink and added a hefty tip. One of the HhoLevari's now emerald green eyes winked in the man’s direction, as her hair smoothly darkened to glossy jet black. A Dorogo then grunted loudly in passing, getting the HhoLevari’s attention. As she focused in his direction, she took on a plainer, gray-drab appearance; her eyes became black pools, hair pale. She pouted at the Dorogo and turned away. Dorogo were apparently too alien for the HhoLevari’s empathic talents to be quite as effective.

Personable and helpful, often flirtatious. Very smooth and charismatic.
