โ€œBeen lost since the death of their master, cloakinโ€™ themselves in mourning garments and the like. Not much more than parasites now; cling to whoever would take โ€˜em. They deal only in shadows and whispers. That ainโ€™t much in the way of currency.โ€

โ€”Tawil, Gleam Upon the Waves

“The spot had a more substantial appearance than other locations on this deck. Its walls were solid bulkheads, and it had its own door that led into a dark interior. The sign above was neon, the glass twisted to illustrate in blue glowing tubes a creature that was a hybrid between bat and bird, paired with an ugly horseโ€™s head. The glass was animated to give the bird-thing a herky-jerky appearance as if it was in flight. A white fabric sign below read โ€˜Lovatโ€™s Oldest Operating Coffee Shopโ€™ in red Strutten letters.”

“Lifts rise and fall through Lovatโ€™s superstructure constantly. Because of their size theyโ€™re pretty slow, but it beats climbing the stairs between levels. Hundreds of them whir, hum, and clack their way along, passing between floors, carrying passengers and cargo up and down. The public city lines usually run inside the massive pillars that hold the levels aloft, though those arenโ€™t the only hoists in the city. Lifts of all shapes and sizes owned by all sorts of interests run day and night. There are express lines and extravagant lifts for the rich. There are lifts for cargo, and for school children.”
