Sidenote: I’ve gotten over being sick (at least, for now — knock wood). Thanks for the well-wishes, everyone ^_^

Can Beings and humans interbreed?

No. (Though that hasn’t stopped some of them from trying.)

Do scientists experiment on Beings?

Only the ones with nothing better to do.

Are Beings categorized as weapons or as biological materials?

Depends on who you ask. For a lot of purposes they’re simply treated as pets.

Can Beings be bought and sold legally, or is there a black market?

Any dealing with the ownership of Beings is complicated by the fact that once they contract with a human, that contract normally stays in place until the human dies.

Are there conspiracies about or involving Beings?

Plenty!

What is a Being’s real form?

Any form they take is, for that moment, as “real” as they get.
