Cavilo is the one that stands out, for the sheer snarky
twistiness of her mind.  In many ways she's the best foil
for Miles, because she's the Anti-Miles: clever, twisty,
charismatic.

Haroche and Ezar might be more dangerous, but neither of them
has Cavilo's panache.  (Horseriver might, admittedly, but it's
in a different universe, and besides the guy is dead.)
