No more alien than Doc Savage, or any number of other melanin-rich 
characters of literature.  But Inire should have some obvious nonhuman 
feature to be considered a "cacogen," particularly in a metropolis where 
visible bionic limbs are commonplace and people with animal heads are 
merely unusual.
