Added DiffLines:
* TheDividual: Clone families are extreme versions of the Twindividual variant. Not only are they physically identical, they have the same skills, the same tastes, and the same functions in the community. With the exception of the eldest of each family (who is head of the family) and, briefly, the expedition members, people are almost never seen separately from their family units. It's implied that they can't even achieve sexual satisfaction if the entire family is not participating in the act.

* CrazyJealousGuy: Mark, especially by the standards of the clone community. What makes it worse is that they (even Susan, his girlfriend) really have no concept of an exclusive relationship.

Section Two's CharacterFocus is Molly, implied to be the clone-descendent of David's [[KissingCousins cousin]] Celia. Like everyone else in the Valley, she is a member of a clone-family, and has six clone-"sisters," all identical to her, [[ThemeInitials all of whose names all begin with "M."]] Like them, she is an artist, and her ability to accurately reproduce what she sees is the reason she is named to an expedition to the "outside world," specifically Washington, [=DC=]. She will produce maps and sketches that will help future expeditions to forage for the technological supplies the Valley urgently needs. Following the expedition, Molly finds that she has become an individual, unable to subordinate herself to the needs of her clone-family. She bonds with Ben, another member of the expedition who develops a similar problem. Their son, Mark, becomes the CharacterFocus of the third section and the epilogue.
