I've decided to create an Amarrian character who was raised in Ammatar space. I haven't come into contact with many resources about True Amarrians living among the Ammatar aside from the fact that they hold high level policy and military "advisory" positions (all/many decisions by the Ammatar government must meet their approval before being implemented). I'm trying to come up with a bio about my character, a young Amarrian aristocrat who was raised in Derelik. Basically I'd like to know if anyone has any ideas or suggestions that can help me.

I've decided that few Amarrian holders living in Ammatar space are there by choice. Those who have chosen to live there either: a) come from families in the lower echelons of the nobility, and enjoy very little prestige and power in the Empire itself, b) have been sent to Ammatar space as a sort of punishment, c) are altruistic religious zealots who believe that the Ammatar need their guidance.

I also think that many of the young Amarrians raised in Ammatar space would tend to be more liberal than their comrades who were raised in the bosom of the Empire. They are farther from the central authority of the Empire, and thus are allowed more levity in their activities. Lacking the immense resources on hand in the Imperial heartland, it is likely that they are more pragmatic and flexible in their diplomatic and military maneuverings, being forced to work with whatever or whoever is on hand to meet their goals.

It's also likely that they are much more familiar with Minmatar culture and behavior than many of their Imperial comrades, since they are raised among the Nefantar.

Now discuss amongst yourselves, I look forward to reading your replies. Very Happy

It's a good idea.

Sounds an interesting idea. The Nefantar are now very different from their Minmatar brethren however. They have always interested me.

Good luck.

While I agree that the Holders in the area are probably more pragmatic (in general) and definitly more familiar with Minmatar culture I also see the Ammatar mandate attracting the hard-core (not so altruistic) zealots.

It's on the border of Minmatar space where fights are to be had, heathens to combat and heretics to smite. Not to mention the people that see it as their job to make sure that things are done "the right way" (ie, the Ol'fashioned Amarr way).

We're starting to see some pretty strong groupings of player corps aligning with some of the smaller factions like the Ammatar Mandate, Thukker Tribe, etc. There's been a long history of Minmatar people claiming to be Ammatar or Thukker, or whatever. What I'm wondering, is what do the Nefantar look like? What do the Thukker look like? It'd be really nice if someone from the art team could flesh out the backgrounds of some of these factions by adding some impressions of what these people are like. If the Nefantar turn out to resemble Mongol warriors or something, all those Sebiestors and Brutors playing Ammatars will feel a bit silly.

I couldn't say about the Ammatar,but the way us Thukker rp'ers have being getting around it is stating that since the thukker clans are so widespread(some don't even consider themeselves to be part of a tribe anymore),that thukker have been breeding with whatever race are in the area of the caravan at the time.So you do end up with thukker looking sebiestor or brutor.I even know one who look's Ni-Kunni Cool

We will be in touch soon, Lord Abai. The Ammatar are quiet for now, building their strength, all unified working towards a lofty goal.

We share solidarity in service to the Mandate, devoted to the Holy Empire.

(and yes, I really would like to know what nefantar would look like!!)
