I have them as something akin to Samurai, seeking perfection of the mind, the body and the ethic. Their whole order is modeled after a Shogunate (with a few flairs to show certain directions the specific Ultimate has taken) with the fraternity itself being fluidly structured as opposed to a rigid hierarchy to promote tactical efficacy. I loved the Ultimate ideal so much I've even written out quite a bit of mysticism and history behind them, they have to be my favorite faction presented so far.

Ah, may I interest Monsieur in a reputation repair service? Reliable, discreet and with an option (outsourced to ultimates) for retribution?

But my comments are based only on the faction crunch; if it's chauvinist of any kind, that's the Ultimates (or, as I suggested, the crunch inaccurately reflects them).
Yerameyahu wrote: Yes. That *could* mean that Uplift egos are okay, but Uplift morphs are 'failing to advance to perfection'… unless you simply haven't had the chance to upgrade. Or… not. :) I love the way everything contains multitudes.
