My Hylotl's viewpoints: Humans: Nice enough, but need to learn patience. Also, would you learn to rehabilitate your criminals instead of littering the universe with them? It sets a bad precedent when so many first-contact situations with humans are with offworld penal colonies. Apex: Pity the common Apex, so oppressed they often don't know it. The Miniknog and Big Ape can kindly go drown in a muddy puddle though. I do admire the sleek lines of their more advanced stuff, even if the standard issue possessions are painfully tacky. Avian: Willing sacrifice is one thing, coerced sacrifice is another. Hylotl present their faith and allow others to participate, or not, as they choose. I find I have little stomach for how Avians attempt to force the worship of Kluex upon others. The Grounded are excellent company, however - though I do worry when they ask about me being edible. I get enough of that from the Florans, thanks. Glitch: Stop calling me "fish" - and not all of us are as clueless and tactless as Hiraki, please try to realize that. That said, the goldwork furniture in your castles is fantastically intricate, if a bit overstated. Mind swapping techniques some time? Floran: Hylotl are vegetarians. You are not off the menu. Continue to threaten me, and I will demonstrate one of the seven-thousand ways to make a salad out of freshly-chopped vegetables. What's that? I'm supposed to be a peace missionary? Well, peace through superior weaponry still counts. Novakid: It'd be nice to not have to re-introduce myself to you every single time I meet you. In addition, next time you discover you can do something, consider whether or not you should. Seriously, you're as bad as Hiraki, and I don't think I could deal with an entire race of Hirakis for long without going crazy. My Glitch's viewpoints: Humans: Envy. The freedom I obtained recently is something they've had for so long that they take it for granted. Horror. Their practice of incarcerating their criminals is almost worse than being re-purposed. Apex: Sympathy. The degree at which their thoughts are controlled by their Miniknog reminds me of the hivemind. Would that they could free themselves from their oppression as easily as we. Avian: Frustration. Please stop preaching about your crazy bird-god to me. I do not have a beak, or feathers, or wings; the only way I'm going to fly is via rocket propulsion or anti-gravity. I do not care about Kluex one way or another. Hylotl: Discomfort. It's concerning how much more attention they pay to how I was made rather than who I am as a person. Confusion. They claim to love peace, but they are openly antagonistic towards the Florans. Resignation. I suppose it's mutual though - the Florans themselves are antagonistic to just about everyone but us Glitch. Floran: Summation. Pretty to look at, but poor company. Exasperation. Most have the intellect and conversational skills of a wrecking ball, and are somehow even less subtle. Begrudged optimism. At least they don't go on about stabbing us like they do every other race. Novakid: Infuriation. If I have to repeat myself one more time for their benefit, I'm going to blow an aggression inhibitor. Aggravation. They're endlessly curious about everything, but have such short attention spans that they never actually learn anything. As a result, they tend to get into everywhere and everything, and have no concept of tact.
