FredVegas GURPS Extravaganza
The Aeretic are a small species, less than 1.5 meters. They very much resemble Earth birds in appearance and share similar traits. The males have brightly colored plumage of varying colors depending on region of origin. The females have similar coloring, but muted, without the pronounced head ridges or plumage.
The Aeretic are a Matriarchal Oligarchy, ruled by the leading females from the major clans on their homeworld. Many of their diplomats, soldiers, and merchants are male, allowing the females the ability to govern with a rigid class system. This seems to please everyone, and Aeretic are rarely displeased or insubordinate about their situation. The males where clothing, but loosely, the females do not. Both genders wear lots of jewelry, especially things that have long chains.
