They are "nuts". Anyone with the genetic connection to Shy of the Vella Crean can be said to have at least a little crazy in them. In this case, a lot crazy. But it's subtle. They're not all up in your face about their crazy. Oh no. That would be crass. Mentioning Raiden's habit of producing half-animal offspring - also crass. Probably get you killed. Or worse, bred to him.

To be fair, Ruby did not actually bear either of these children to her partner Shy. They were whipped up in Aperture's lab, Shy making comments as GLaDOS mixed and matched the pair's genetics. Shy definitely likes them, Ruby is proud to say that she's their mother - at least in a way. That cruel streak of hers? The one she got from 'both sides' of her family? It continued on in Rin and Raiden very strongly indeed.

Both of them are remarkably precise, physically as well as verbally. GLaDOS taught Rin many unusual lullabies. Shy offered his hand at genetic engineering. No one really gave them instructions on how not to be completely scary.

They are tolerated-at-best in the Healing Den's halls, but both of them have appeared around any given Rookery or even Protectorate location at will. One place they both tend to linger is in the damp Rapture labs, though what they're brewing up in there is beyond even Melissa and Rhea's ken.


In the long run, these two threw in with their sire and helped him produce some truly incredible dragons. Not just with the donation of genetics from the dragons they'd bonded and brought along on journeys, but with their own. The Sword and Shield dragons bear traits directly from these two pairs, and are fabulous as well.

"That could have gone better," Rin commented quietly, watching recordings of the disastrous hatching that they missed thanks only to attending another event off world. "I do wish I could have been there to see it though."

"That's only because you want to listen in to their screams," Raiden said, though he too was watching the video intensely. 

He wasn't wrong. But still, they both picked apart the tableau from start to finish, numerous times
