I think they will be kind of nervous to try the experiment, considering.

I am guessing that Cycle people (Cycleans?) are externally shaped just like regular humans, but do they have internal reproductive organs? Are there such thing as babies with "birth" defects or siamese twins and the like?

The internal parts are all there, they just don't see use. (I think maybe females don't menstruate, too.) Any congenital condition that is caused by circumstances in the womb (such as: being geeshed up next to another embryo and sticking) does not occur in Cycle - so no twins of any kind, no chimaeras, no fetal alcohol syndrome or whatever.

are babies related to sex at all? like, if two people somewhere have sex a random baby will appear somewhere on the planet at that time/some what later? (but if so, it'd be pretty hard to tell...)

Nope, sex on Cycle is free of baby-related consequences. It's possible that the number of babies sprouting depends loosely on existing population, but it doesn't do so in nearly so clear a fashion.

How does the world react to homosexual relationships? I'd assume that because relationships are wholly removed from babies they'd be more accepting, but bigots are not known for being rational.

We haven't been operating under the assumption that Kib and Aydanci had any problems, although it may vary regionally. (Since babies aren't involved there's no strong reason to expect any prejudices to be in favor of heterosexuality, anyway.) You may assume that Lapis is a civilized sort of place in most respects; several generations of Bells and Adarins have chosen to live there.

Are people appereances "random" like natural Daevas?

Servantmaking can increase the inteligence of a animal?

People in Cycle have more clustered traits than daeva do. Daeva traits like nose shape and eye color and so on are totally uncorrelated; in Cycle that's less true (although still more true than it is other places).

Servantmaking doesn't increase the intelligence of an animal, but it doesn't rely on the animal's intelligence to make it follow orders.

How complicated/sofisticated the orders can be? Can a pet servant count? Are they using the creator's intelligence?
