adding some tropes
to:
* TheSnarkKnight: Not as much world-weary as [[SamaritanSyndrome the only one who can be counted at to do what needs to be done, and do it right]]. * TerrorHero: She can do it... Some strategically placed blood, a suitably scary [[MasterOfIllusion illusion]] and lots of bloody-minded attitude can get Emily quite far.

Added DiffLines:
* TheChampion: What Lady Winter is grooming him up to be. He despises the thought [[spoiler: until it turns out he's supposed to be the Champion for Emily]].

Added DiffLines:
* TheFettered: What he really is, despite all his worries about slipping into the Hunt.

Added DiffLines:
* GoodThingYouCanHeal: ''Bloody'' good. Part of the Winterhound package. * IAmAMonster: [[ChronicHeroSyndrome Emily]] sets out to help him become a person again.

Added DiffLines:
* MrFanservice: Frequently [[ShirtlessScene shirtless]]. [[DarkAndTroubledPast Horribly traumatized]] into [[TroubledButCute moral fears-fueled emotional insecurity]]. In short, a girly fantasy personified.

Added DiffLines:
* RealMenCook: [[ThroughHisStomach A mean steak, to be exact]], but that's what you get [[ChefOfIron when Texas raised you]].

Added DiffLines:
* TheWildHunt: One of the Winterhounds. When he gives in to the Wild Hunt in him, he gets ''scary''.

Added DiffLines:
* FanOfThePast: Gives the vibe, in love as she is with the "primitive" world though she's not actually from the future. * FreeLoveFuture: Comes from such a world, which causes some tension between [[InnocentFanserviceGirl her]] and prim and proper Emily ("You mean you want to sleep BESIDE him, not WITH him?").

Added DiffLines:
* SpaceClothes: Very shiny. She loves dressing-up, though.

* ShoutOut: Astro Gal and family are defined by references to [[TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks Golden]] and [[TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks Silver Age]] comic books. Her powers (invincibility, flying, and super-senses) are directly taken from Franchise/{{Superman}}, the origin story is more or less that of the ComicBook/FantasticFour, the combination teenage angst and high-schooler disguise recalls ComicBook/{{Spider-Man}}. Various other superhero signature lines are bandied about in the prose and dialogue, and [[{{Expy}} Expies]] of other superheroes appear in flashback or are mentioned in dialogue.

A runaway from {{the British Empire}} (consisting in this case of (at least) all of Western Europe), Gilbert worked as an Honored Calculator for Gearhaus Industries. After designing a device which would allow one to navigate across the ocean without disturbing the kraken, he realized it would be used to further the Empire's expansions, and promptly decided he'd [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere had enough of his servitude]] and left for the Americas, taking the [[NoPlansNoPrototypeNoBackup prototype device]] with him so the Empire couldn't abuse it.

* BlessedWithSuck: Quite literally, as it's due to her grandmother's blessing that Emily can't remember spells; she has to copy each spell by hand for each time she wants to use it. [[spoiler:Of course, this is because humans reciting spells BURNS THEIR BRAINS OUT.]]

Added DiffLines:
* SatelliteLoveInterest: Arguably, Nel's two defining traits are her talents with Glamour (as noted above) and her endless devotion to Una.

* HalfBreed: While never explicitly stated but in the PrintBonus chapter a00, [[spoiler:Emily has Faerie blood in her, which is why]] she has Insight, a rare trait only Faeries have, which is passed down bloodlines. [[WeirdnessCensor In order to keep her sanity]], she deliberately stays away from figuring out why she as a human would have Insight.
