Ba'atezu are a militaristic race, exemplified in small part by weaponry without stun settings. They consider it an honor to serve in their Imperial Guard, and military rank greatly influences social reputation. Deploring dishonesty - and never fighting without reason - Ba'atezu are nonetheless capable of duplicity. They considered themselves deeply emotional, passionate, and even violent; not known for their charity or sympathy, they place a high value on family. Imperial Guard members who died far from home could count on their companions to transport a body part back to Myntharan.
A crucial part of Ba'atezu tradition is Ushaan, a code of honor demanding a duel to the death, with combatants pitted against one another using an ushaan-tor miner's tool. Such a fight can be called off if one combatant disabled the other enough to prevent its continuance. Though Ushaan can be called by someone to avenge a personal loss, there exists a right of substitution wherein each combatant can offer up a replacement; and married combatants can postpone duels indefinitely if they had no children to continue their claims.
Females enjoy an equal position in society, and as soldiers are as capable as males.
Ba’atezu are well known for their determination and endurance in physical combat. On Myntharan they are taught how to fight with a ushann-tor when they are children.
