Umm, well, much like any good secret society...
Gypsies only treat other gypsies equally.
They have two names, a Gypsy name, and a name for profane use. An outsider can never know a Gypsy's true name, but I haven't asked (nor would I).
They use masks in healing, and in magick, but I can't vouch for all of them being into that.
Basically, their code of ethics is, you MUST always treat Gypsies fair, and you have to take advantage of non-Gypsies in any way available (I guess
the belief is, if they were to show kindness, the Gypsies would get taken advantage of, or be deceived themselves).
So there you have it, take out the word Gypsy, and you wouldn't know what bunch of elitists we were talking about!
note: the word Gypsy, and the root 'Egypt'ian. Damn 'Gyptians.
