Lilie does not, by default, contribute to conversations unless she has a strong reason to do so or is directly addressed, and she doesn't have the blunt affect or bitter tone. I would describe her interest in daeva arrests and imprisonment as a Project, not a Value. She does also think somewhat negatively of the cultural attributes of daeva and thinks this makes them behave badly (she's, uh, not great at statistics, I guess) but she doesn't design her whole life around getting them whipped into shape, that's just the capacity in which we saw her. She did not have a terrible childhood either.

"Champions".

Plus some expansion of that noun phrase I haven't thought of yet for the bitter part.

"clique" as a general term was suggested in IRC

I get where are you coming from, but they feel more like... the generals that command the champions? »_»

Are you looking for a name for this specific set or a general term for the type of thing the set is?

for the first: adherents, advocates, hierophants, expositors

Is cluster not the right feeling for the group name?

I am looking for the first thing. "Cluster" seems fine to me.
