Gran-air, the first group of runaway travellers, included people of various social background and races.
According to the official citizen ranking table of Yüv,
the society was split into following classes:

High Upper
Middle Upper
Lower Upper

High Middle
Lower Middle

High Lower
Middle Lower

Marginals and outcasts were not considered as a rank and thus ignored by official statistics and census.

Major Races populating Yüv as of year of koor epoch:

There's a tense moment between Viroka and Nax in the Women Camp, when Nax's disciple Asin"Li runs into Viroka's tent and interrupts her while she was talking to the other women.
Maniiv gets furious and she rises her hand to slap the girl on her face, knowing that Nax is watching them.

"...get the grip and keep your distance"
Those are the words Nax had once said to young Haromin Viroka, back to their Haeleges life in the 7th Round.

Naghill came to talk to Hoza and was met by his 9-year-old daughter,
who was excited to see her and ran to hug her with wide-spread arms, happily screaming, and was punished for this "inappropriate behaviour":
she gave her a sound slap and told her off in her cold, stern manner, with a desired effect - Romi didn't talk or touch Nax.
This incident wasn't left unnoticed by Romi's mother. Maniiv saw the scene and confronted Nax, as fierce as a mother protecting her cub could be.
From that day on she refused to stay in the same room with Naghill and avoided her, warning her that if she ever lays her finger on Romi, there'll be a duel and there'll be blood.
They remained distant until the Dallan Has (The Great Fire) festival, when Llava's arrival had helped to break the ice between them.

Hello, my name is Viroka and I'm an alcoholic and a sociopath.

I'm Hyffes, hi. I'm a deviant misanthrop in permanent therapy.

Hello, my name is Fern and I am a gambling addict. And a BDSM enthusiast. And I have sexual morals issues.

Good afternoon. My name is Atega and I am a workaholic with latent anger control problems.

Hi, I'm Sandaraen, and I'm awesome.
Sorry. Seriously, I don't have problems. I'm just here to support my mates.

I'm Varae and fuck off.

High-Level Girars seek retreat in their azeel"ms,  personalized virtual spaces where their creators can either isolate their Yahs or escape to in their bodies.

Fernollg's azeel"m

An antipode of her worst fear (emptyness and silence):
everything dear and close to her, an old panel house full of people and noises, laughter, chatter in communal corridors and kitchens, kids running around.
Everything's annoying and irreplacable.
Trap: dream in a dream in a dream (the victim confuses numerous realities, each of them contains clues to one another).

Naghill's azeel"m
From inside it looks like an ancient temple built of grey stone: tall ceiling disappearin in the dark, 
broad columns, a praying stone right under a narrow hole that lets a ray of bright light fall onto cold marble floor. 
Trap: visual tricks and illusions, driving the viewer insane.

 Llava's azeel"m

A deep autumn forest among the mountain peaks,
serene and smooth mirror of a pond within stoney shores. The path leads to a meadow with a wooden platform on it; the platform is separated by tall bookcases from a sleeping spot in the open air, on the front side there's a low tea-table with a pot and cups on a wooden tray. a large tin pot boils some water on a portable burner.
Trap: a swamp.

Keranomu's azeel"m

It's his own "teahouse", an exact copy of the "smalltalk chamber" he used to have in Haelegaes. 
It is a dark place with a slow-spinning caroussel of gazebos that look like giant flowers hanging upside down.  inside of each there's a table top and cushions, hidden by a thick curtain; such car can intake no more than three persons.
Trap: squeezing walls.

Hjotennir's azeel"m

High above the ground, miles and miles up away. Windy heights, bridges and passages connect flying rocks and mountain tops in the crystal sky.
Trap: endless fall...up into the sky. 

Maneev's azeel"m.

White sandy shore,  grass, a dark strip of forest seen from afar, the road running from the beach to the far hills. A tiny cabin standing on the shore, like a chubby bird standing on long thin legs. It has got windows facing each side, except of the Eastetn side which has a door. 
Detailed description of the cabin's inside is given in the chapter about Resurrection, when Fernollg gets into this azeel"m to gather memories of Mavi.
Trap: flood.
