Monkey Luddites are citizens of Darwinist countries who are against fabrication or uncomfortable with fabrications. The term Monkey Luddite does not apply to Clankers, who are expected to dislike fabrications. Many Monkey Luddites consider fabrications to be blasphemous, and dislike them even though they benefit their countries. Deryn notes that Newkirk's mother is a Monkey Luddite, and some of the other middies joke about this. Deryn teases Newkirk about his skittishness around fabrications several times in Leviathan.
