세이에스토족은 체격이 작지만 유연하고 대부분의 경우 우아하기까지하다.

세비에스토 여성들은 친절하고 사려깊지만 잔인한 것으로도 악명이 높다.

많은 세비에스토족 무역상들은 유랑민처럼 단기수익을 찾아 우주의 이곳저곳을 돌아다니며 산다.
이들이 장기적인 무역루트를 개척해 정착하는 일은 거의 없고, 엄청난 수익을 안겨줄 기회를 찾아 이리저리 방랑한다.
대반란 이후 대다수의 민마타인들이 적당히 새삶을 꾸리기위해 노력하는 반면,

이들은 육체적인 힘을 무엇보다도 중시한다. 직접 만나게 되면 좀 무섭다.
Brutor Females are in some ways opposites of male Brutors. They are dominant, persistent, and egocentric. Their grace and beauty serve to aid them in these matters.
Brutor Males are patient, alert, and determined. Their thoughtful and deliberate manner gives them great situational awareness.
The majority of Brutors have a modest background - that of working the fields, mines and factories of the Republic (and before that of the Amarr Empire). Still, a lot of them take pride in their jobs and are expert craftsmen and builders.
The Brutor clan was treated harshly while the Minmatars where under the yoke of the Amarr Empire. This strengthened their bond with their cultural heritage, the only thing the Amarrians couldn't take away from them.
The many millions of slaves within the Amarr Empire dream of escape, especially for their children. Every year thousands of newly born slave children are smuggled out of the Empire into Minmatar space, where foster parents raise them.
The Vherokior tribe is a splinter tribe from the Starkmanir tribe. The origins of the Vherokiors are actually well known, unlike the other older tribes. Some five thousand years ago a brutal Starkmanir chief was exiled with all his people. The chief led his people into the most inhospitable part of Matar and was never seen again. But several centuries later their ancestors returned to Minmatar society, much changed in appearance and manners. They never revealed the cause for this change, but took to roaming between the other Minmatar tribes in large caravans, living as merchants, healers, scholars and fortune tellers.
Vheroikior females are renowned for their shrewd minds when it comes to business and trade. Their batering skills are second to non and they possess exactly the right mixture of sense and intuition to excel in both commerce and industry. The Vherokiors have long since abandoned their wandering ways, instead opting for small-scale family-run businesses. These small establishments, often small canteens and bistros, are usually operated by the matriarch of the family.
The Vherokior male is small in stock, but nimble and quick footed. They possess an easy charm and are quite affable. While the tribal tattoo tradition is something shared by all Minmatars, the Vherokior male shamans have taken it to new heights. The mystical nature of the Voluval ritual, where the inner soul and karma of the person is revealed through a body tatoo, is exclusively handled by Vherokior shamans and the secrets of the rituals are only known to them.
The wanderlust is still strong with many Vherokiors. While most have managed to curb their lust for adventure, there are those that can never settle down in one place for long. Never at rest, the horizon holds a constant faschination for them. For there are places to be seen and riches to be discovered.
The Vherokiors have always seemed a bit odd to the other Minmatar tribes. Doubly so in regard to those Vherokiors with mystical inclinations. Vherokior shamans are both revered and feared by the Minmatars. They possess insights that can be of great help to people, but these same insights can also grant them great powers.
Walk into any dingy little eatery in Minmatar space and odds are it's owned and operated by a Vherokior. The same goes for any other small business establishment in the Republic. The Vherokiors are notorious peddlers, dating back to their caravan days. They usually run a family business and are seldom inclined to create big corporations.
