* UpperClassTwit: Ferbin, although he is a relatively benign example, simply being not very intelligent but not at all malevolent. Although to be fair, the circumstances he's in are WAY beyond anything he's practically capable of dealing with.

Added DiffLines:

* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler: All 3 siblings die due to the Iln Machine (although it's possible Djan could be brought back from back-up). But Sursamen is saved, and Holse returns to the Eighth level as Special Circumstances agent, along with the funds and means to improve life for the Sarl]].
