I've always wondered why, what with all the astonishing medical technology available in the future, Silaran remained disfigured. Some have speculated that he might have refused treatment in order to wear his disfigurement like a badge, which certainly makes psychological sense.

But the thought has also occurred to me that in such a stratified, hierarchical society, a mere domestic servant simply might not warrant expensive reconstructive surgery - he's not important enough. I'd say that those of privilege, with a high rank in society, and military troops would probably enjoy automatic priority when it comes to any sort of medical aid - military served first, they need to be "repaired" so they can function again and return to their duty; ordinary citizens second. And the privileged could certainly buy priority treatment for themselves or family members. Any thoughts?
