~ De Valtos Proverb

De Valtos is known for its influence and wealth, secured through its manufacturing expertise and extensive trade network. Within its meritocracy, positions of leadership are open to those who, through running a successful company, prove they can provide for themselves and their cohort. Within the Syndicate, the accumulation of great wealth is often the most direct path to accumulating power and taking positions of leadership. De Valtos leaders prize generosity and will publicly shower others with gifts to show the depths of their pockets and hearts.

The scions of De Valtos are focused and professional, yet charming. They highly value classical education—in the arts of diplomacy, finance, and swordplay. They seldom value wealth for its own sake, despite what outsiders may think, and will show more respect to newly built wealth than to inherited fortune. They have high expectations and are willing to spend to get or create the best; their high standard of living often surprises the scions of other Factions.

In the Farfallen Rim, the De Valtos have won the right to operate the Syndicate Core, one of the richest worlds in all the known quadrants.
