Playing a naive and honest Minbari this campaign has reminded me that I play a lot of liars. They aren't all bad people, but lies and secrets are a major part of who they are. Certain genres seem to almost require this. World of Darkness requires monsters to pretend to be people to avoid mobs with torches and pitchforks and assault rifles. Infinite Worlds, Shadowrun, and most supers settings all have lies, cover stories, and secret identities built into their themes.
 
It has been a little problematic with my Minbari when I start musing about which lie I'm going to tell and realize my character wouldn't lie. A Pakmara did not eat my homework, and I have indeed seen your laptop full of encrypted secrets.

It has been fun though. What is the worst thing I can say right now? Oh yeah, the truth...
