Arenema typically hurl themselves into the unknown with little thought for the consequences until they arise. The Arenema instinct to "leap without looking" often leads them into danger that they sometimes cannot escape from, for all their tenacity. Arenema are an ambitious race, driven to achieve their goals to a far greater degree than any other race, This ambition can lead them to acts of great cruelty but it can also lead them to greatness. Their ambition also makes them impatient and prone to self-deception.

The self-reliance and bravery of Arenema makes them tend to be a hateful pious races that put their faith in the gods

After several failed genocides the Arenema race eventually decided to leave after manufacturing a device said to be capable of transporting their entire race to a different dimension. their civilization hasn't been seen since and only several thousand remain. The knowledge of their people has become one of the most sought after secrets in the world.
