Clan Liana - Deaz and Esch seem to be highlighted here, along with a slightly more vague highlight on another of the crew members - are a military society through and through, they follow a strict military hierarchy in what they do, and due to the lack of a planet to cultivate enough crops and meat to feed their growing society, they have a rationing system in place. Their fleet is unparalleled in might and size, and their military training is extensive and spectacular. A large part of the reason for this is due to Clan Liana's impressive paranoia. They are almost convinced that all other Clans are just waiting for an opportunity - which is not necessarily untrue, but evidence suggests it is highly unlikely that there is any serious threat. Due to this paranoia, there is also the long-standing tradition that no single person in the Clan Liana hierarchy who has full access to all military information at any one time. Clan Liana is known for its thirst for conquest, and with its fleet capable of laying devastation to most other fleets when ambushing, it is very rarely unsuccessful. Even when perhaps it should be using mercy - their paranoia makes them unlikely to show any.
Their military may be unique, due to the high proportion of psychics present in their population. It has been discovered that psychics who are given frequent and willing hugs are considerably more stable than those who are deprived of those things. Therefore, regular hug regimes were instituted - although only for those that were willing. However, it quickly became an exercise in team-bonding that causes the Lianan military to share a bond that can rarely be rivaled, and most members of it's active military partake wholeheartedly. Most Lianans would not even consider disobeying an order from a superior, however extreme, unless they think it is clearly against the good of the Clan, but if they do it is most often considered treason.
Lianan families are small, close-knit units. While children will often begin some form of service, be it military or otherwise, younger than most Clans consider acceptable, parents maintain a strong relationship with their children, supporting them as they need. In return, children will often ensure that their parents are well looked after, should this become required.
On the darker side of Lianan life, there is also the fully accepted practice of being able to declare children who are either expected to be psychic, or have displayed unusual powers, to be experiments (here, Esch seems to be highlighted again). This is due to the higher proportion of psychics and unusual abilities (those outside of telepathy) displayed in this Clan. However, many of the people who develop unusual abilities, if they do so at a time where they are capable of control, go to great lengths to conceal it, as they are well aware of what awaits them should they not - being considered less than human. Due to this practice, Liana also has the best understanding of how the psychic mind works, and how to defend against it. But also how to use it to the best degree to twist other people to their will.
