* CityofWeirdos: The Budayeen is full of bizarre characters; From the terminally tripping Bill the cab driver, to Laila the old shopkeep, to the Black Widow Sisters (Three different Dominatrices from three different races that also do a little goon work on the side) Marid sometimes comes off as comparatively normal

* TheDon: "Papa" Friedlander Bay is a classic version, with a strong sense of honor, and strong religious beliefs--which don't stop him from having a hand in most of the organized illegal activities in and around the Budayeen.

The ''Marîd Audran'' series (sometimes known as the ''Budayeen'' series) is a {{Cyberpunk}} adventure by Creator/GeorgeAlecEffinger, set in the late 22nd century[[note]] (Audran was born the year 2172 by the western calendar, and is about 25)[[/note]] where UsefulNotes/{{Islam}} has risen to dominate world politics. Most of the stories are set in the fictional middle-eastern RedLightDistrict called the Budayeen, which AntiHero Audran calls home. The Budayeen is loosely based on the French Quarter of Effinger's own home town of NewOrleans. The series features cheap-and-easy brain plug-ins: "moddies", or personality modules, which have become one of the primary forms of entertainment, and "daddies", add-ons that provide specific skills like languages or technical expertise.

The series inspired a video game, ''VideoGame/CircuitsEdge'', which stars Audran. There was also a Budayeen supplement to the tabletop role-playing game, ''TabletopGame/{{Cyberpunk 2020}}''.

* HighTimesFuture: It's never made clear whether the drugs are actually ''legal'', or if the cops simply don't care what people do to themselves in the Budayeen. Nevertheless, drugs flow like water in the series. Audran is constantly taking speed ("tri-phets") or opiates ("sunnies"), which doesn't always mix well with his heavy alcohol consumption. At one point, when he's given a ride in a police car back from the station, he buys some pills off the cop who is driving.

* ElectricInstantGratification: Discussed and averted. When Audran gets a brain socket installed, his doctor explains that he's gotten an advanced version with some experimental features. One of the features he ''could'' have gotten was a direct wire to the pleasure center, but his patron decided that Audran would be too likely to abuse the privilege, so instead he got a wire to the ''pain'' center.
