Namely, [[spoiler: Rize Kamishiro is an escaped BreedingSlave that was destined to be raped and forced to bear children to her own biological father, [[TheHunter CCG]] chairman Tsuneyoshi Washuu. Her half-brother, Furuta, turns out to be a {{Yandere}} that wants to replace their father, marry her, and use her as his personal BabyFactory]].

This exploits a specific primal instinct-based sex taboo, and is specifically based on the equating of breaking taboos with evil. When averted, this is presented as EvenEvilHasStandards. The latter can and does come across not as a mere ValuesDissonance, but as outright {{Hypocri|te}}sy, resulting in a BrokenAesop. Many cultures have world/humanity {{Creation Myth}}s involving [[Mythology/BrotherSisterIncest divine incest]] (and human incest, if the myth involves a few early humans giving rise to all of humanity), highlighting a moral dissonance between the primal and the religious.

It's not immediately obvious though since Debilitas's creation was even more botched than Riccardo's own, though Debilitas does not yet seem to be suffering from any degeneration.
