Ethically I see it as good on the surface - give humans another chance! - but deeper down it's kinda messed up? They're bringing a child into the world as the only of her kind, into a place where a lot of people think her kind should stay dead. Also, what about the failed attempts? Are they making things that live short, painful lives? Or ones that do survive, but grow up knowing they're the failed byproduct of an attempt to make something else? Basically, intentions aside, any kind of toying around with creating sentient life is bound to have some really creepy implications

First implication being that the people who do it honestly believe it's their right.

I can answer some of those questions!! Yes, the failed byproducts are still alive but they're kept away from the world - Most of them look like normal hybrids but have some kind of internal issue due to unnaturally blended biology. And yes, they do live with that knowledge.

And yeah, Chim definitely would feel alone if she could comprehend what she is and such.

I think that's a good analysis!!!! Yeah!!

Yep~
