Unique Characters

Everyone likes talking animals. ‘Final Contact’ has a ferret with an AI brain, and most of my — not yet published — near-future SF stories have human/animal genetic hybrids of some kind, because people are sure to start building them as soon as they’re technically possible.

Not sure about unique, but my favorite character is probably Russ, the legless… actually, I’m not sure what he does other than hang around on an anarcho-syndicalist space freighter and pretend to be doing something useful so he can hide from his wife. I kind of think of him as Yoda, if Yoda was drunk and had no Force powers and his wife had cut his legs off.
