Suri

In the past book, Drake called Cass a suri. She took offense to it, and it started a big fight between them. It was explained a little in the story as to what it really was. But I figured I’d go into some details about it.

A suri is a derogatory term used to indicate a telepath who is constantly spying on people. For Cass this is mostly unintentional.

AJ did a little bit of digging to find an appropriate slur. There were a few different things we looked at before deciding.

Suri in Japanese means pickpocket. So an apt idea for the term.

It’s meant to be a slur that hurt Cass but wasn’t a known word to the world at large. Something that went straight for the chest. And it did it’s job.
