to:

* SpiritedYoungLady: She's brave, determined, and energetic, and she did bash in the head of her would-be rapist with his own warhammer.

Added DiffLines:

[[AC:General Adelis Arisaydia]]

* AFatherToHisMen: He seems one of those generals who truly inspires his soldiers.
* Expy: Of UsefulNotes/FlaviusBelisarius.
* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: Under house arrest on a false charge of treason, he continues to believe that he will be found innocent by those who trumped up the treason charge in the first place.

[[AC:Madame Nikys Khatai]]

* BigBeautifulWoman: As a [[AuthorAppeal Bujold love interest]], she's definitely not skinny.

to:

* GoodLookingPrivates: He's described as being a very handsome soldier of the Daughter's Order, to the point that Caz wonders why Betriz isn't attracted more to him.

-->[[AC:Palli]]: I, I, I... I can swear my fealty in addition to what I have sworn to your brother Orico, lady. I cannot swear to you instead of to him.
-->[[AC:Iselle]]: I do not ask for your service before what you give to Orico. I only ask for your service before what you give to Orico's chancellor.
-->[[AC:Pallli]]: Now that I can do. And with a will.

* BecauseYouWereNiceToMe: [[spoiler:Caz gave him water and defended him from a rape attempt, earning himself a vicious flogging, while they were on the galley together - all with no clue who the boy truly was until they met again over a year later.]]

* CantLiveWithoutYou: [[spoiler:He's dead, but his soul remains in his body and keeps it from rotting so long as a spiritual "link" exists between him and a living person - currently Illvin. Any injuries sustained by Arhys close up and reappear on Illvin. Unfortunately, the body is a limited vessel; there just isn't enough spirit in one person to sustain two living people at full strength. Typically Arhys is upright and in the prime of health while Illvin lies comatose, though the link can be manipulated. There's a more significant downside: he is sundered from the gods, denied his proper place in the afterlife]].

* ColorCodedForYourConvenience: Grey for the Father, green for the Mother, red for the Son, blue for the Daughter and white for the Bastard.

* HotGod: An especially attractive and manly man is said to be "blessed by the Father" - so, yes, masculine allure, virility and sexuality are also his domains. To hammer home ''that'' point, the area on the human body associated with the Father is the genitalia.

* AFormYouAreComfortableWith: Notable in that she doesn't bother to take one when appearing to a human character (he was fortunate in that his perception was altered enough to bear it). He specifically describes how he'd come to imagine her, from childhood sermons, as a "nice immortal lady" - nothing at all like the magnificent and incomprehensibly powerful being he perceives.

* WarGod: Her Order is much like the Son's, but turned inward; it pursues bandits, hunts down murderers, investigates crime, roots out corruption and defends those who can't defend themselves (such as, for example, maidens who are not trained in combat - hence their patron deity). Those who pledge themselves to the Daughter in this regard are fewer than the followers of the Son, but what they lack in numbers they make for with a certain romantic dedication.

* DraggedOffToHell: When demons escape his hell, this is the fate that ultimately finds them - and the souls of those unwise enough to entangle themselves in such forces tend to go with them.

* SatanicArchetype: His domains are disasters and chaos; "all things out of season". When calling a demon, one prays to the Bastard. Most other prayers beseech him to steer clear. When cursing, one invokes "the Bastard's Hell." Deaths by violence, accident or sickness - lives cut short - are his. He actually ''is'' reviled as a Satanic figure in some regions. He fulfils the role only up to a point, however - he may be inscrutable and his blessings hard to parse as such, but he loves humanity as much as the rest of his family. Orphanages are run by his dedicates (since unwanted children are often bastards), and unexpected windfalls are also his purview.

* MrSeahorse: It's left vague whether he's ''literally'' pregnant with some kind of [[FetusTerrible ghost-demon-hybrid]] that will eventually claw its way out of his body ([[spoiler: when his tumour is punctured at the end of the novel there is no demonic fetus to be found within it, but Caz dourly notes that the demon might just have taken its half-formed body with it as it vacated the premises]]), but he does in fact carry the spirits of a ghost and a demon within him, and they manifest physically as an abdominal tumour that makes his stomach look swollen.

to:

\n* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: She's determined to become this, even though tradition is for highborn women to be demure and passive. After a few stumbles along the way, she succeeds admirably.

* HumbleHero: To the point where it seems to be a symptom of depression. To hear Caz tell it, he's failed at everything he's ever done in his life and is just generally worthless and useless. Other characters frequently point out his praiseworthy qualities and many achievements, but he always dismisses them as irrelevant.

* CantLiveWithoutYou: [[spoiler:He's dead, but his soul remains in his body and keeps it from rotting so long as a spiritual "link" exists between him and a living person - currently Illvin. Any injuries sustained by Arhys close up and reappear on Illvin. Unfortunately, the body is a limited vessel; there just isn't enough spirit in one person to sustain two living people at full strength. Typically Arhys is upright and in the prime of health while Illvin lies comatose, though the link can be manipulated. There's a downside: he is sundered from the gods, denied his proper place in the afterlife]].

* WellDoneSonGuy: Illvin confides to Ista that Arhys believed as a boy that if only he was good enough, his father would call him to court. [[spoiler:In the end, it is not his father but the Father who calls him]].
