Ginger Lewis and Wanderman are a good example. Abigail Hearns. The entire Zilwicki family.
Also, Weber shows how Honor's originally crew have grown to be forces in their own right. When they die, you mourn along with her.
And he does it with the antagonists, too; Tac-witch Shannon Foracker being a good example. I'm thinking the Mesans are going to curse that name for centuries.
It's a fun Universe to visit.
(Wouldn't want to live there, though.)
