** Near the end of ''Woken Furies'', Kovacs realizes that [[spoiler: Todor Murakami is really not on furlough and doing him a favor by helping him storm Radul Segesvar's compound to rescue Sylvie, Virginia Vidaura, and the others, but is actually part of a covertly deployed Envoy team tasked with keeping an eye on/neutraizing the Quellists]] right after he hits Kovacs over the head and then shoots him with a stun gun.

* PhotographicMemory: Envoys are conditioned to have perfect recall of everything they experience. This comes in handy for Kovacs plenty of times over the course of the novels.

* PreMortemOneLiner: Right before Kovacs [[KilledOffForReal kills]] [[spoiler: Reileen Kawahara]] with a grenade in ''Altered Carbon'' he quotes a Quellist Black Brigade guerilla who blew herself up while being interrogated:
--> That's fucking enough.\\

Added DiffLines:

* OtherMeAnnoysMe: The younger copy of Kovacs from ''Woken Furies'' drives the older Kovacs nuts for many reasons, not limited to his attitude, the fact that he's working for the Harlan family, the way he disrespects the older Kovacs... The fact that he's literally a copy of Kovacs from 200 or so years ago when he was a young Envoy gives this shades of IHatePastMe as well.

--> When they make an Envoy, do you want to know what they do? They burn out every evolved violence limitation instinct in the human psyche. Submission signal recognition, pecking-order dynamics, pack loyalties. It all goes, tuned out a neuron at a time; and they replace it with a conscious will to do harm.\\
