They're deliberately not set up to be Better People. Yes, they're special
and magical; no, this doesn't mean they're morally better. (This is one
of just many ways Her Ladyship is engaging with some of the common ideas

A lot of Book One could be read as "Lakewalkers are Special and Better";
special they most definitely are, but better they are not. Book Two is
where we find this out.
