\n* YouKeepUsingThatWord: 'Lycanthrope' comes from the Greek ''lykos'' for 'wolf', and ''anthropos'' for 'human'. It's a little bizarre to have it used for all manner of were-species.

** Anita is happy to execute vampires for crimes they had no choice in. Initially, she is very hesitant to kill humans who have definitely committed horrific crimes.
* DoubleStandardRapeFemaleOnMale: Anita repeatedly uses the ardeur to force men to sleep with her or give sexual experiences by proxy. There are multiple occasions where Anita chooses to delay until she has no choice with someone unwilling or outright rape people for the sake of convenience. London, in particular, screamed and begged for her to stop. This is not always entirely Anita's choice: The ardeur can act as a metaphysical date rape drug on all parties involved and having a metaphysical hunger for sex creates a great deal of pressure. However, every time Anita uses the ardeur to do that it is always treated like a normal, consensual sexual encounter.

It's suggested that she's also backing work against a three-strikes law that slates any vampire caught in three crimes for execution, whatever the crimes are.

** Richard Zeeman is straight as an arrow, to the point of borderline homophobic, and originally, it was an issue that he tried to learn to deal with as he ascended in the pack. After his CharacterDevelopment, he suddenly decided he was bisexual and was perfectly fine engaging in four ways as long as Anita was present to get her rocks off.
** Damian gets a similar plotline in ''Crimson Dreams''.

** And of course Anita herself [[spoiler: having sex with a woman]] in ''Bullet''. She has a few female lovers now, although given all the men she's tied to metaphysically, it's potentially justified. Each such link means you get a bit of the other person you're tied to; it's quite likely she picked up an attraction to women from one of her men - or even first female lover Jade as the bond formed.
