Sociology and Culture
Human culture highly values innovation. While corvicians value learning for the sake of learning, human culture rather pushes to put knowledge to use. As such, humans and those that they trade with are often on the cutting edge of technology.
Humans are, as a whole, an insular culture, with xenophobia a common issue in their dealings with other races. Because of this, the most valued innovations are those that strengthen military might; weapons manufacturors are highly prized among humans.
Utilitarian as ever, human names are a descriptive title followed by a monosyllabic name. Names frequently begin with soft consonants, and end with a double x or z.
Examples: Mindmolder Gloxx, Truthseeker Jaxx, Scrolltender Flixx
