Spee’At society has always been one where intrigue, subterfuge and deceit are a way of life. A Spee'At who is not well versed in the arts of conspiracy and trickery is one who is not long for life. Anonymity is not only favored, but it can be a useful survival tool. For this reason, Spee’At disdain clothing and other distinctive body ornamentation. A well camouflaged Spee’At is a happy Spee’At. They prize secrets and thus are usually mistrustful of anyone who uses psionic abilities, especially Telepathy.
The females hold all the power among the Spee’At. Only the most exceptional of males have a chance of advancing in the Spee’At hierarchy. The matriarchal Spee’At government oversees the population encouraging what could be called ‘controlled paranoia’. Spee’At live their lives watching the shadows, wondering who might be plotting against them, and in turn plotting against those they see as a threat. A preemptive strike is always seen as preferable to being forced to defend oneself. In combat, the Spee’At will nearly always attack first if they think the possibility exists for conflict. A quick and final resolution is always seen as desirable in combat. Since 303AE, the Spee’At have been the most steadfast of allies to the Aquillan Imperium.
