Psychologically and societally, Eyebolts are very orthodox, with uniqueness and creativity being frowned upon. In the Agita-controlled Root Hall, this is taken to the extreme, with bureaucracy permeating everything. Eyebolts refer to the thinking of creating and imaginative thoughts as 'Weirding', which is illegal in Root Hall. Eyebolts' antennae give them the ability to detect the psychic imprints left by creative thoughts. The Anti Weirdness Squad, an organization backed by Agita, has been founded by the Eyebolts of Root Hall in an attempt to crack down on Weirding. Weirders have likewise formed a Weirders Liberation Front.
Eyebolts are Arthur's report to Yasmine. What the report doesn't mention is that Eyebolts are not unique to the Basement but exist elsewhere in the Known World. They are uncommon enough that few humans have met one.in
