** Like many laws, it can be subverted. [[spoiler: Ethan Conrad]] spent several years in the progressive Rim States (on the West Coast), gaining citizenship in the Angeline Freeport before grandfathering into a clause in Jacobsen Accords which gave him privacy regarding his genetic stock.

* TakeAThirdOption: a thirteen has two options post-Jacobsen Accords: stay imprisoned on Earth for the rest and know when and where you're going to die, or go to Mars and become a part of the workforce (as well as something of a minor celebrity). Or you can run, in which case you'll have a UN-backed thirteen-hunter (who is probably a thirteen) come after you. And you'll have a Haag bullet with your name on it.

* SuperSoldier: Thirteens, which are genetic throwbacks to early hunter-gatherers who were forced out of the breeding pool by the rise of agriculture. Several nations had programs that birthed and trained them, particularly the U.S.'s Project Lawman and the U.K.'s Project Osprey.

* {{AI}}: the n-djinns of the Thirteen universe are not [[defective AIIsACrapshoot]] in any way. They are used as spaceship pilots, powerful search engines (so powerful they can link people through many degrees of separation), and can even [[spoiler: map out the spread of a immune system-killing virus]]. Despite their usefulness, they are fundamentally alien and impossible for any human (or variant) to fully understand, despite being created by humanity.

* {{Jerkass}}: thirteens are Jerkass the Species. Navant, Marsalis, Keegan (the thirteen who extorts Ethan Conrad), implied with Ethan Conrad. Merrin [[spoiler: and his twin Onbekend]] are outright evil. Everyone thirteen but Isaac Sutherland is an ass, who is never in an actual scene. A [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold heart of gold]] may accompany the jerkass part, but it's rare among them.
