Caste System

The upper and lower castes of Twi’lek society rarely mixed in social settings. The lesser castes stayed within the confines of poorer communities, choosing to keep to their own while the more noble castes busies themselves with political intrigues and/or amassing more wealth. The only instances in which the two might mix would be anything surrounding the Temple, as it is a central driving force within the Twi’lek culture.
