Ok so, Ssiv’s parents are Serval the catperson and Severance, who I haven’t designed yet. They sort of represent the two different “sides” of the Synthesis attribute, with Serval liking the idea of merging things together sort of “AND” style and Severance preferring to accent the differences between things for a more eclectic approach sort of “OR” style.

Serval leads the Ocellated, and Severance leads the Variegated. The Ocellated has biotranscendents, people like technotranscendents but with living things (Katzenkämpfers if I use them are probably a sub-class of BTs). The Variegated I don’t know much about yet but Severance definitely works with Arbiters as Arbiters’ independent, in-control-of-myself thing really fits their philosophy.

Severance is probably gender zed, maybe femzed. Either way I imagined them having a similar off-white heavy-weight cape to the one I imagined Karkira with when he switches to “Karkir”, so I guess nondescript heavy capes are a thing associated with gender zed. Serval has like a small amount of serval-like spotting on their body so I think Severance will have dramatic rough-edged stripes on them but probably on some kind of equipment/accessory rather than their body since their whole thing is not merging things the way Serval does.

Serval could have some kind of AND symbol and Severance could have some kind of OR symbol.
