Though still few in number, the Amanin of today are a stark contrast to their once enslaved, oppressed, and exploited ancestors. Having burrowed and wiggled their way across the galaxy, members of the stubbornly determined species now fill the ranks of merchants, warriors, and even heads of state. The primordial need to seek revenge against their ancient oppressors still runs strong however, and has ultimately resulted in the creation of the paramilitary group known as The Hive. Largely uninterested in the ever shifting political landscape of the galaxy, members of The Hive are a neutral group focused on their own growth and prosperity. The group serves as a safe haven for any and all Amanin who share the values of freedom, independence, and a commitment to protecting and preserving the ancient Amani traditions. It is also both shield and spear against any force that threatens the Amani way of life.
