* PostHumousCharacter: Played with. Elena Aguirre is used as one for one-sided DeadPersonConversation purposes, but Marsalis's mind simply latched on to her face when his CryonicsFailure marooned him in space, he never met her after she was [[HumanPopsicle thawed]] on Earth, and she may be alive and well elsewhere for all he knows.
