Default Re: Not sure if this has already been asked/answered somewhere, but...

D. M. Domini: None of that necessarily precludes homogeneity. IIRC, there is evidence that in a merge, some strength is 'lost' (used to maintain the merge). It's a common enough system, after all.

granath: Actually, Afra was T-3 at the start of the Hiver War. ( nitpicky pedants for the win! ) Also -- if I'm remembering correctly and some strength gets dedicated to the merge -- that would figure.

Quasi-off-topic: That would also go a long way towards explaining why Damia's catalytic Talent was such a prize -- (some of) the extra strength would essentially "offset" the strength lost naturally to a merge.
