"One for whom household honorifics is inappropriate."
Nice.  So C.N and C may refer to each other as "C-san"
and "C.N-san", reflecting their nestmate privileges.
But they both refer to "D" as "D".

The distinction of outsider vs. insider works in
English as well.

Hmmm, we have so many colorful terms for an
outsider that tries to be an insider:  impostor,
interloper, crasher, bounder, poser…   And
among birds, the cuckoo does this.
