Added DiffLines:

* OceanPunk: The waters have taken all coastal cities, many NewOldWest tropes are applied to the settlers of the sea, the governments are constantly trying to short-change and backstab everybody, technology has made it so anybody can afford their own UnderwaterBase (although it's not ''cheap'', hence the rebirth of the DeterminedHomesteader), and in between all of this people are being born with superpowers that allow them to thrive in the depths of the sea with ease... and said government would kill to get.

Added DiffLines:

* UnusualPetsForUnusualPeople: Zoe holds a variety of outrageously dangerous sea life (such as snakes) as pets. Her power of animal control keeps them from being harmful to her.
