Isn't taking advantage of people's good qualities what the Flying People
do in "The Waif"?  Sort of the opposite of the inhumi.  But I'm just
throwing that out, because I don't understand "The Waif" (which is why I
didn't answer Dennis/Endy's query), and I probably don't understand lots
of BotSS either.
