By the time Miles reaches maturity, the male Vor of his generation outnumber the women by ''three to one,'' leaving many members of even the High Vor scrambling to find a suitable bride.

* MamaBear: Cordelia, especially in ''Barrayar''. In ''Gentlemen Jole and the Red Queen'', Cordelia is extremely overprotective of her new daughter to the point of leaving her nanny in tears, thanks to her never having a ''healthy'' baby. She eventually gets better.

** At the end of ''Captain Vorpatril's Alliance'', [[spoiler: Ivan and Tej, to backwater planet Ylla rather than Lazkowski Base. Ivan rapidly uses his administrative skills to turn his "exile" into a two year honeymoon in paradise.]]

* YetAnotherStupidDeath: Lazkowski Base on Kyril Island (AKA Camp Permafrost) gets a lot of these. The record for the most original and idiotic death goes to the guy Miles found wedged in a drainpipe, having drowned trying to save his cookie stash.
