*CompleteMonster: [[TheEmperor Emperor-Regent Nicosar]] of Azad is a master player of the [[AbsurdlyHighStakesGame ruthless game of Azad]] that determines everything in the empire's society. A [[AxCrazy sadistic psychopath]], Nicosar rules via torture, murder and brutality while broadcasting regular videos to the population with the "losers" facing mutilation, death or rape. Women are also seen as second-rate citizens, with abuse and violence towards them accepted, and any females who assault a male are summarily tortured to death. Despite his [[FauxAffablyEvil seemingly benevolent and passive façade]], Nicosar rules over the Empire with an iron fist, regularly executing any who would try to rebel against him, and [[BadBoss subjecting his own men to terrible torments]] should they cross him. When Nicosar plays the novel's hero Gurgeh, Nicosar is bested in Azad and orders his guards to massacre all the spectators, deciding if he has to go down, he'll [[TakingYouWithMe simply kill every single one of his own subjects in the process]].

** Maybe even more than that. Contact have apparently known about the Empire for 73 years. [[spoiler: Gurgeh is 60. He may have been specially genetically engineered and/or nurtured for the purpose of playing Azad. He mentions the possibility himself towards the end. SC deny it naturally.]]

* FridgeLogic: Gurgeh is nearly seduced by a couple of Azadian females, though an attempted attack thwarts this from coming to fruition. It makes you wonder how this was going to work, since Azadian females are explicitly stated to not have vaginas (these instead being present on the Apex sex).
** Without wishing to be unduly crude, they do have mouths and rectums.
** Also, they have vaginas, or at least a uterus with an opening to get to it. The Apex sex has a "reversible vagina", however that works. Presumably Azad males could have intercourse with Azad females, but maybe they don't want to. Unless there are gay Azads, or... um... whatever that would be.

** Maybe even more than that. Contact have apparently known about the Empire for 73 years. There are hints dropped that [[spoiler: Gurgeh is a little younger than this (half the age of a professor who's said to be in her second century).
