Probity's species is an unnamed species from an unnamed planet that was once engaged in a civil war.
They are human-like with two different skin colors: pink and light blue.
The different colors of this race are at war with each other. They had a statue of their leader, who is deceased, and the color had worn off, making them unsure whether he was red or blue.
This species shake hands differently with one another; while the Reds shake with their right hands, the Blues shake with their left. Ben found out about this when he tried shaking his right hand with the Blue Leader (who thought that Ben was siding with the Reds as a result), degenerating negotiations with each other.
This species' currency is different for Reds and Blues, with the Blues using hand-cut or polished jewels in their payment transactions, while the Reds use refined precious metals, like gold.
At first glance, the war is a merely civil war. However, the purpose and/or reason for the war itself seems to change the deeper one seems to delve into it from an outsider's perspective:
- It is first shown that the combatants are trying to defend their territories from encroachment by the opposition. This makes the war closely affiliated with a Cold War in nature.
- It is later revealed that both the combatants aggressively debating over the color of their leader Zavin, whose only statue from the time period left had its paint chipped off over the course of millennia.
- Afterwards, it is discovered that both the Red Leader and the Blue Leader are only fighting as a distraction from their races' bad economy.
As a result of the above, neither military leader would consider signing a peace treaty with the other until Ben took matters into his own hands. While he was able to intervene in the heat of battle as Way Big, he accidentally knocked over and destroyed the statue of Zavin. This would convince the Red and Blue armies to unite as a single Purple army and declare war against Ben, forcing the team to leave their planet.
