to:

* ToServeMan: In her early days, this creature (long before she became known as Zevanna Agha the Old Witch) preyed upon the ancestors of today's Khadorans.



* FantasticRacism: Iosans in general tend to be extremely xenophobic, while members of the Retribution are even more so.

to:

* FantasticRacism: Iosans in general tend to be extremely xenophobic, while members of the Retribution are even more so. They especially hate the skorne, their ancient enemies, and human magic users, for the timing of the Rivening just so happened to nearly coincide with the time Thamar made her deal with the infernals to give humanity the Gift of sorcery.

* DecliningPromotion: She declined a promotion to potent when offered, not wishing for more responsibilty and scheming, and knowing that doing so will further Morvahna's agenda.

* AndIMustScream: All skorne that do not get exalted or chosen by an exalted to be its revered companions (that is, the majority of them, including all non-warriors with very few exceptions) will, upon death, be flung into the yawning Void to experience endless pain and agony and inevitably go mad.
* AppropriatedAppellation: When the elves still ruled much of central Immoren, before the Abyss was created, they called the primitive skorne godless. The skorne took it as a compliment, in the belief that the elven gods pampered the elves, making them weak and dependent on the gods.
* {{Cyclops}}: The one-eyed, large, brutish cyclopes are one of the most common warbeasts used by the skorne.
* EyepatchOfPower: Skorne extollers ritually cut out an eye and replace it with a device called Oculus.
* FantasticCasteSystem: All skorne have a caste which largely defines one's role in skorne society. The skorne castes are, in descending order: warrior, worker, slave, and outcast. Typically a character’s caste is determined early in life, but some skorne belong to castes other than the one they were born into.
* FantasticRacism: Skorne tribes used to raid the elven empire of Lyoss long before the events of the game, and the enmity continues to this day. For this reason, Makeda chose Ios as the target for her invasion.
* HordesFromTheEast: The skorne originate in Eastern Immoren, and come to the western half of the continent for one purpose: conquest.
* LivingStatue: Skorne ancestral guardians and immortals are statues animated by the souls of the exalted and their revered companions.
* NayTheist: The skorne know that gods exist. They just don't have any of their own, and view worshipping gods as a weakness, and in fact, held the Iosans' dependence on their gods against them for several millennia before the current storyline.
* TheNothingAfterDeath: Skorne philosophy does not include an afterlife. Avoiding this fate is the goal of ''hoksune'', earning enough glory and prestige through battle to deserve preservation in a sacral stone so the warrior may advise future generations.
* TortureTechnician: All skorne paingivers are masters of torture.
* VertebrateWithExtraLimbs: The titans and mammoths used by the skorne have six limbs each.
* WarElephants: Titans (which can be described as small, four-armed elephants) and their larger cousins, the mammoths, are widely used as warbeasts by skorne warlocks.
* WitchSpecies: Unlike the other races, all skorne have the potential to use magic in the form of mortitheurgy. As a result, in the RPG, in contrast to characters of other races can only have an ARC stat or take magic careers if they have the Gifted archetype, skorne non-Gifted characters start with an ARC stat of 1 and can take magic careers as long as they meet the prerequisites (the only exception being the Extoller career). A skorne character with the Gifted archetype is either a particularly powerful individual or one who committed early to the study of magic.

* TheVirus: Some grymkin possess the power to transform others to become like them, spreading their nature like an infection.
* YourWorstNightmare: The physical bodies and essence of the nightmares are a reflection of the deepest, most secret fears of the Defiers.

* WalkingTheEarth: The Wanderer wishes to walk wherever he pleases and regards the Wall as a constraint to his freedom.



* UnPerson: Immorese history records Cinot as the first great Menite priest-king and never even mentions the Heretic. In truth, Cinot was only the Heretic's student, and much that is credited to Cinot should be cast at the feet of the Heretic instead.

* HazyFeelTurn: Goreshade eventually leaves Cryx and comes back to Ios to serve the Retribution, becoming known as Lord Ghyrrshyld the Forgiven.

The thoroughly evil undead elven vampire can proceed to rejoin his only slightly less evil cousins in destroying all humanity.

* TimeAbyss: The Defiers are nearly as old as civilisation and the Gifts of Menoth themselves, and the oldest grymkin are only slightly younger.




to:

* {{Delinquents}}: Menoth’s laws place parents above children, and they were expected to devise and enforce petty rules about what was acceptable and what forbidden, what could be done and what shouldn't. The Child hated these laws because they prevented her from doing what she wanted for no good reason at all. The Child chose to be defiant and would not obey.



* BreakTheBeliever: The Heretic was the first priest-king who spread civilisation and Menoth's word. Then he saw that Menoth was not a just god: Menoth did not punish the wicked, nor did he reward the selfless; the god rewarded only obedience, punished only defiance. From that point forward the Heretic refused to wield his power in Menoth’s name.

* UnPerson: Immorese history records Cinot as the first great Menite priest-king and never even mentions the Heretic. In truth, Cinot was only the Heretic's student, and much that is credited to Cinot should be cast at the feet of the Heretic instead.

Added DiffLines:

First of the Defiers, the Child wants nothing more than to play and not be told what to do. Accompanied by her companion, Dolly, woe upon the fool who tries to take her grymkin 'toys' away or tries to harm her. Only the Child decides what she gets to do—anyone else who tries will be ripped apart like a broken doll in a fit of rage.


Added DiffLines:

The last of the Defiers to spurn Menoth, the Heretic is a self-styled god who rebelled against his creator. Believing all are able to become divine, he fashioned himself into a paragon of his own distorted virtues. Now the Heretic wishes to dethrone the God of Man and free all of his creation from his laws.


Added DiffLines:

The King of Nothing wants nothing more than to be left alone. Rejecting Menoth’s desire to see humanity band together, the King of Nothing wishes to have no part in society. Having been cast down as a Defier, he rules over an empty, barren wasteland. And like any good king, he desires to see its borders expand.

* AxCrazy AxCrazy: He does not take prisoners, he just butchers entire towns.



* TheFriendNobodyLikes: Most of the Khador army hates him and only puts up with him because of the Empress wants him around. And with good reason, not only did he kill his own men when they tried to restrain him from killing that surrendering garrison, he wipes out entire settlements rather than accepting surrenders, something Khador does not want as it will make the people they conquer more opposed to their rule.



* GlassCannon: Has the highest focus in the game and a very strong spell list, but she dies just easily as you'd expect a teenage girl to.
