* BiTheWay: Evi Isham has slept with men before, and was unimpressed. She's not certain if it's because she doesn't like men or if it's because she always had to hide her [[DesignerBabies true self]]. Diana Murphy knows she's a [[NoTranshumanismAllowed frankenstein]] and doesn't care, and Evi decides she doesn't care about Diana's gender either.


* PettingZooPeople: Moreaus

Added DiffLines:

* UnstoppableRage: Some moreaus (like Nohar) can tap into a mental state called "The Beast" which puts them under this trope, putting them in a state of animalistic rage and bloodlust that enhances their combat abilities while temporarily shutting off their sense of reason, which is why Nohar treats it as a SuperpoweredEvilSide since there's a risk of him harming friends or innocent bystanders if he's not careful. He'll willing let "The Beast" take over only when he thinks he absolutely has to and he's certain he'll only harm anyone he ''wants'' to harm.


* AnachronisticOrder: The two collections collect ''Forests of the Night'' and ''Fearful Symmetries'', which can cause a bit of confusion when Nohar references background events from ''Emperors'' and ''Specters''. [[spoiler: especially when Nohar mentions The Race and mentions having broken up with his human wife]].

* WhatMeasureIsANonHuman: This trope is in full play. The eponymous [[UpliftedAnimal Moreaus]] were created as soldiers and workers in hazardous places, and treated as expendable despite being fully sapient. This has long-term consequences, as moreaus tend to have short lifespans and are prone to all severe physical degeneration with age. Even after the wars that spawned them are ended, they're treated as second-class citizens at best and slaves at worst across the globe. The [[BioAugmentation engineered humans]] called Frankensteins are treated no better, despite looking fully or almost fully human (Evi Isham has catlike pupils for enhanced nightvision, while Mr K's skull is slightly deformed to accomodate his altered brain).

* CrapsackWorld: The Pan-Asian War left Tokyo and New Dehli radioactive craters, and the PRC conquered Japan and Taiwan. Tel Aviv was nuked by the Islamic Axis during the Third Gulf War, and sub-Saharan Africa and South America have been devastated by other, unnamed wars. [[UpliftedAnimal Moreaus]], created as soldiers, are second-class citizens at best throughout the world, and many are refugees from war or persecution. TheTroubles continue unabated in Northern Ireland. The U.S. verges on a PoliceState, with rampant political corruption as a bonus, and verges on civil war with the Moreau population. [[spoiler: and the alien invaders who caused much of this conspire behind the scenes to make it worse]]
