The Kaivani see sorcery, military power, and the creation of goods and services as mediocre methods for attaining power. For members of House Kaivan, the truest mark of power is the ability to buy and sell whatever and whomever you want. To that end, their trade is money: usury, shareholding, banking, and gambling enterprises all serve to fill their coffers. The House uses this income in a variety of ways, from legitimate purchases to outright bribes.
Kaivani pride themselves on their fortunes and the economic might of their House as a whole. To show solidarity, all adult Kaivani maintain similar appearances within their respective gender: males trim their beards into tight goatees, while the females wear ostentatious patterns and colors of makeup. Both genders wear their hair short in distinctive patterns, and frequently adorn their hands with complex tattoos indicating their general standing within the House. Their contribution to the arts is no less ostentatious, and the Kaivani frequently face fines when admission to their operas costs too much for the average commoner to afford.
