* HateSink: All three bosses, as the title implies. Harken's a sociopath who treats his workers like slaves, Julia's a rapist and (as the sequel reveals) ephebephile who likes taking advantage of her patients while they're under the effects of laughing gas and Bobby is a sleazy, disgusting hedonist with an overinflated ego.
