Attitudes and Beliefs
Jiminea collect their fortunes legitimately, and see all who break the law below them. Very few know what the Jiminea do with their wealth, but they themselves are waiting for a day they call the Hatching, when the Hive Mother, the first of their kind, returns to this universe looking for the suitor with the most riches to adorn her Astral home of Gheahive.
Jiminea follow the money as it were, flocking to large cities and adventuring parties alike, with a special fondness for guild city-states because they remind them of Gheahive.
Young Jiminea often go adventuring primarily to search for riches, though their are few who seek to distance themselves for their brothers endless quest for riches and adventure for a higher cause, generally the upholding of the law.
