Mercedes: Look, I am sorry, but we graduate in Three weeks. It's time we at least start pretending that we are adults. I hate my old man just as much as you hate yours. But there are less juviline ways to get revenge. Date a black guy or something. Mann: This isn't a game for me! I liked Girls since I was four!
Shout-Out: Her surname, "Zamyatin", is one to Yevgeny Zamyatin, author of [[Literature:We|We]], the novel which directly inspired both Huxley to write Brave New World (although he denied it), and for Orwell to write 1984 (in a review of WE, Orwell called Huxley out for it)
Big Bad: Subverted. She's' built up as a recuring villain and with her minor army of amazons she looks to be a real threat. Then some ex meth-addict puts an ax into her head.
Straw Hypocrite: Depending if you believe her stories about her being able to defeat world-renowned chess champions at 13 but having been banned from public competition because she was a woman or not, she may be this. But she definately plays it straight by applauding the death of the male gender for the way they oppressed women and twisted feminine virtues against them when she does exactly the same thing. It gets worse when you consider her cult-like emotional manipulation of many women who were victims of abuse or rape, making her no different than the men that hurt them.
As Long as It Sounds Foreign: The depiction of this Jewish tradition/superstition is correct, except that "Alter" is the male form of "the old one", the female form would be "Alte".
It Runs in the Family: Being a soldier runs in the blood for her family. Her grandmother operated behind enemy lines in the Israeli War of Independence, and her grand-mother was a member of a all-female Battalion of Death during the Russian Revolution.
