** Subverted in that Don King has told Caesar he was planning on having him mentor the new heir because Caesar's experience and skill were valuable despite the personal disagreements between Don and himself. While he does see Caesar as a symbol of the previous, non-royal way of doing things, and originally planned to disband him outright the next time they had a serious disagreement, he ultimately cannot bring himself to do so and instead orders him locked up.
** Finally played straight when Don King gives him a choice between BlindObedience or execution.

* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: Narrowly averted, at least directly. Don King can't simply disband his chief warlord, especially one as successful and popular as Caesar. Were he to do so, the Loyalty of all units under his control would take a massive hit. Instead, he's been trying to [[UriahGambit kill him off by sending him on suicide missions,]] but Benny suspects that his continued survival hints that he may have a role to play in Fate.

Added DiffLines:

* ParentalNeglect: Thanks to his refusal to acknowledge his impulsive mistake, Jillian immediately starts off on bad terms with her son, Albert. She does feel a strong urge to check on him and know how he is doing, but never does so directly, only getting it second hand from Vinny. Albert feels neglected and unwanted as a result.

** In Book 3, she starts figuring out that Charlie got Gobwin Knob to sign a contract that prevents Gobwin Knob from hurting her, making her battles delightfully easy as Gobwin Knob units are literally left with no choice but to let her croak them.

* FallenAngel: One of the many rumors about him claims that he is a fallen Titan. In an attempt to scare everyone into ceasing their wars against Gobwin Knob and joining them against Charlie, Parson plays this rumor up, claiming that he stole the Arkendish and fled to Erf to hide, build up resources, and overthrow the other Titans. While Parson himself doesn't actually credit this story (he's deliberately and blatantly ripping off Satan), a number of characters have mentioned that there actually is scripture to support it, giving himself to have a credible motive while distancing himself from Toolism.

** Carnymancy is technically Fate magic, but as Parson put it, it's probably actually "The magic of rigging the game". He's the first character from Erf to argue for the existence of Free Will, though it's hard to tell if this is something he has a unique perspective on due to his discipline or if he was pulling a con-job. This could make him very dangerous, considering Parson was summoned by Fate magic in the first place, and he seems to have made it his goal to stop Parson from achieving his destiny.

Added DiffLines:

* GallowsHumor: Tondelayo hates Charlie's jokes, because his jokes are always about something hilariously awful when things go wrong.
