The Aideenan believe the dead have influence over the living and take an active interest in the conduct of their descendants. Lineage plays a significant role in society.

The fruit of the Ambrosia Vine is the only other known natural source of an enzyme produced by an Aideenan woman’s body chemistry. The enzyme permits heightened psycho-sensory abilities in the gender. Distilled Ambrosiadyne, when injested, can increase the brain’s psycho-sensory capabilities and is used in ritual to evoke visions and other paranormal effects. The drug is addictive. Production is strictly controlled by Faith and illegal except for use by the Order of the Oracle. It has no effect on the male of the species.
