* Act of rebellion. The cat was her ''own thing'' - everything else in her life was dictated or granted by her parents, but acquiring the cat was something Dren did all on her own. Elsa took the cat away for no good reason, except to say "I'm the one in charge; you can't do things without my approval" - and giving it back later basically says "You can have this now, because ''I'' have decided to grant you the privilege". Dren's response means: "Yeah? I don't even ''want'' it anymore".

* Listen to the last thing that Elsa said before Dren impaled the cat. "It's nice to have a pet." Dren's not stupid. She realises that Elsa is keeping her as a pet more or less in the same way that she herself wanted to keep the cat. She's directly challenging her own dehumanization at Elsa's hands.

to:

** For an animal that size to maintain its body temperature in a cold environment like that purely through metabolic action, Dren would need to consume enormous amounts of food- far more than was shown- something close to or exceeding her/his body mass every twenty four hours.



Why did Dren kill the cat? She seemed so enamoured with it and was heartbroken when Elsa took it away, so why'd she suddenly do a 180 and impale it with a PsychoticSmirk on her face?

* HumansAreSpecial. For a lot of people, anything that even smells like an experiment on humans is an ethical line that they don't want to cross.

** Because that isn't a specific error message for human DNA failure. It's an 'Add-Your-Own-DNA-and-Name-It' message. Basically: the machine tells them whether or not the combination was successful or unsuccessful, they put names to the DNA for logging reasons. In example: Monkey Ginger DNA Hybrid #---- - Unsuccessful. They just plug and play the names to specific DNA sets they've put together, the program doesn't automatically note that the DNA added to this batch is human.
