As a counter to the default whiteness of fantasy at the time, Liavekans are dark-skinned, as are the indigenous S'Rian people on whose older town the city was built. A same-sex relationship is central to some of Dean's stories, and the city has multiple religions, but also atheists -- no easy feat when the various gods regularly take an interest in human affairs." --Elizabeth Graham, NPR
