Who are the signature baddies of 3E?

The dude fighting Revana in the antagonists chapter is a Liminal. When you're already harvesting other people's limbs, why stop at just two?

Just so, although "dozens" is more of a lower bound. Creation is very large and very old, and once-mortal things are often unnaturally long-lived. It's not unreasonable for an area interesting enough to host an arc in one's home game to be home to several idiosyncratic entities.

Indeed. This is what I was (broadly yet reductively) trying to convey as "weird thing in Creation".

That's a really great thing for the game to emphasize off the bat, but I don't see it as granting poor Mist any special status, himself.
Oh, it doesn't! Except in whatever corner of Creation he happens to be in, of course. Exalted are rare, and supernatural entities who cannot measure up to the might of the Solars can nonetheless have quite an impact in their absence.

I am kind of going through that series again off and on and finding bits like how Simu seemed pretty much utterly unique in the setting as a half-dead demon-touched gender-shifting magical person like (s)he was. Or the half-souled pair from the first book. Or the Keba (I think that' sthe spelling) who learned magic, got stuck on a rock and nearly blew up the world out of hate. Or the flower-born lady.

Just all these weird, alien and bizarre things about, each which canve have a story to it and in such a wide world, all easily seen as myths or lies if you tried to tell someone about them unkowing of it.
I find the comparison flattering, as I'm a huge fan of the Flat Earth material. I binge-reread the whole series while working on the core book.
