@Radix: Wasn't arguing with you, sir. But there are quite a number of minor races (hylek and skritt for starters) that are not one-dimensional. BTW, by one-dimenasional I mean "everyone in their culture acts the same (more or less)" - e.g., the largos are all assassins. The reason this harms the potential of beign a playable race is because each playable race has a division of culture - for humans its heritage and background (noble, commoner, street rat), charr have their legions, norn have their spirits, asura their colleges, and sylvari their cycles. Tengu have their four houses, but largos have not.
They have the "Concordat of the Tethyos Houses" Not sure what that is but it does indicate that there are multiple houses in their government (theocracy maybe? Concordat sounds religious) so they aren't a one dimensional race. Charr are all considered soldiers and belong to respective legions and the Tethyos Houses could be something similar.
