“Every city has its own customs, and Tabat is no different. They grow from and are shaped by the circumstances around them, the history and the geography and what is plentiful or scarce, which exert a much greater influence than any individual ever will, even the Duke.”
Cat Rambo, Beasts of Tabat

“Next to him stands a Water Human wearing one of the elaborate canvas suits held up with a clockwork frame that allows him, or her, to survive in the open air. The machine is like a tank with legs. Plates of glass affixed in the sides allow glimpses of the Human inside, colored blue and scarlet like a singing bird, with stripes of turquoise, black, and mottled gold, a profusion of fins and frills like drowned fans. Not for the first time, I wonder how one water-based race has managed to define itself as Human while all the rest are considered Beasts. That must have taken some fine-grained negotiation.”
Cat Rambo, Beasts of Tabat
