Playing a entomear
Entomears are very mindful of other creatures, preferring dark areas and deep swamps as opposed to large cities, and well traveled roads. They don't hate other races, but are extremely cautious in all situations, females are more dominant in most entomear tribes, commonly being cannibalistic or using the males as servants/slaves. Spider Entomears or arachnomears as they call themselves, specifically eat their husbands, other colonies of entomears, and even races like humans and elves. Most races upon meeting, are surprised to see the females more 'manly' than the males, who are often distracted, distant, and act like the servants of the wives or girlfriends.
