Tritons in our current game world are the merchant race. VERY early in their history their guardian deity Leviathan mandated a universal law: "A Contract is Sacred"
A few hundred years later, the triton people clarified with "A Verbal agreement is also a form of Contract"
A few hundred years after THAT, they once more clarified with "A Contract is an agreement free of deception or omission"
Now we have 3 Triton groups. One that believes in the collected works of the Triton Code (Lawful Good merchants who act in good faith whenever possible), one that believes only the "First Word" of the Deity are valid (Lawful Evil opportunists, think Ferengi from Star Trek), and one that effectively told Leviathan to screw off (Neutral Evil, Usually pirates).
The DM has already approved the basic code of conduct, so I'm just trying to make it look nicer. Wording, structure, ideas on other subgroups (like maybe constitutional lawyers?), etc.
