I like that a lot. I think because of their ability to fly and general ideology on life they would be quicker to unify between hives. I also think a massive barrier between themselves and how their portrayed to the other races will be language. With no vocal cords or even the ability to make noise out of their proboscis or breathing siphon their language is based entirely of of pheromones and vibrations. This combined with their uncanny nature will severely limit any attempts at diplomacy. Another interesting thing in irl mosquito larvae is that they are the same size or bigger than the adults, as well as much heavier. These mosquito people larvae, although much less intelligent (maybe not even sentient yet), could be an interesting extension to the mosquitoes militaristic capabilities. Maybe even though the average Mosquito-Folk's combat ability is poor, their young could be proficient in combat underwater. This could be interesting to see how the mosquitoes would react when they have the upper hand in water based combat considering they were kind of forced into their liberal ideology due to their stature especially if there are are going to be any water based races. This could also be an interesting tree of technology finding ways to maximize the time spent in larval form while also being well fed and prepared. (sorry I took so long to reply). Below is an image of a real mosquito larvae.

Maybe there would be a more developed/beefier form of mosquito people that are more well equipped to parasitize other things that can fight back. They would be like 5-6 feet tall and have a much shorter proboscis, about 1-2 feet long depending on the size of the mosquito. They would probably be a big part of the bastardization of the smaller mosquito people even though they are much rarer than normal mosquitoes. irl mosquito larvae are water born and eat algae, also mosquito larvae are the same size if not bigger than adult mosquitoes. So maybe they would have a lot of their primal agricultural advancements built around breeding pools. I'd also just like to say that it's really cool to be able to do this. If this game turns out, I think it's going to fill a niche a lot of people are looking for. It's just cool to be able to suggest things one on one to the developers of this game that has a decent chance of getting really popular.
Technically they would be able to parasitize sentient creatures but because of the way they are built it is not a reliable food source on a mass scale. I imagine they were kind of forced into this ideology by their frail body structure and super long proboscis that kind of gets in the way (they don't really have the core strength to do any efficient attacks with it). Their only redeeming quality is their excellent flight and dexterity. It's has been an uphill battle for them for their entire existence, and the only way for their survival is absolute unity and making no enemies. In warfare they rely on traps and siege weapons and if that fails they rely on sheer numbers, coupled with the fact they make their homes on cliff faces, they are usually not attacked by other races. Please tell me if you have any changes or adjustments. (:
They are 1-2 feet tall and live in massive hives on cliff faces. They mostly get the food required by sucking on wild animals and eating tree sap. Most hives are an incredibly liberal and open society that is tolerant of many, however they are treated with disdain by many races because of their uncanny resemblance to the much hated lesser mosquitoes.
