Yeah, they definitely share similarities. I would say Selenis is cooler than Veil--Veil generally had pretty strong feelings about things, but mostly managed to maintain a cool exterior, although she did have a tendency toward exhibitionism. We'll be seeing more of Selenis' particular brand of cool shortly.
And that *is* a Matrixism...or at least more so than what star posted, which was really...an A*ism? :o
