A Vibro is a slang term for a vibrator, which is a sexual massage device generally used by women. When Amanda Rosewater spoke to Kenya Rosewater about her past with ex-husband, Hunter Bell, Kenya told her, "I'm supposed to take love advice from a woman whose last boyfriend was a vibro?"

Vizu is a Castithan title, which refers to the leader or high-ranking lieutenant of an organized crime cartel. In modern parlance, it is the equivalent of capo. Alak Tarr became the new vizu of his father's illicit business practices after Datak Tarr was sent to Camp Reverie.
Volubela was an Irathient and a member of the Votanis Collective. She was the wife of the Castithan military general, Rahm Tak, and had several children with him. On Earth, both Volubela and Rahm Tak were members of the Votanis Collective. When Rahm Tak went rogue and took a "scouting expedition" across the American midwest, Volubela remained behind in Brasillia. In 2048, she traveled to the Bordeen Valley in Tulsa, Oklahoma to reunite with her husband. During a private moment, she warned him that the V.C. know about his unauthorized actions and his murderous campaign against the humans. She warned him to abandon his quest and that he should return with her to Brasillia. After a bout of love-making, Rahm Tak slew his own wife. (Defiance: Where the Apples Fell)
