Smug, self satisfied, arrogant are what most outsiders would consider Etherians to be, and it would not be an inaccurate observation. The high standards of living and education has meant that Etherians have acquired quite a superiority complex when it comes to off-worlders. Get to know the people of Etheria however and your opinions may change, while they are superficially obnoxious, they have a deep respect for life and can be extremely charitable to those who need help. They have a deep seated hatred and disgust of obvious robotic and cybernetic implants, a disgust so strong they stoned the first representatives of Mars to set foot on their world.
