Tezenelia: An Envoy To Sovehles
"Mechanids" is a catch-all term used to describe the sapient synthetics of Tezenelia. They are nigh-immortal cosmopolitans with little interest in material wealth and instead value more ephemeral things. Memories are their currency, and they take on roles that allow them to cultivate these sorts of experiences such as artists, functionaries, and servants.
Mechanid culture is composed of a plethora of different communities, each one specializing and trading in a different type of memory. Though some communities are open about their preferred 'memory type' most mechanids prefer to keep personal preferences a secret from other races because of the possibility of a social backlash that can impeded their progress. As a result, mechanids have a reputation for being just as trustworthy as they are manipulative. Asking a mechanid about their preferred memory-type is considered to be a major faux-pas.
