* TheFriendNobodyLikes: Zulenna, on account of being arrogant and haughty, and being the only one on-board Castle Wulfenbach who gives a damn about the pecking order. She and Agatha don't get along, not helping when one of her comments when they first meet touches a nerve with Agatha.

* UncertainDoom: The last time Bill and Barry were seen together by anyone was over a decade before the story starts, fighting some madboy. The last Adam and Lilith heard from Barry, it was from a vague and garbled note shoved under their door while they were out.
