* {{Foil}}: To the Templars. In addition to their origins as once part of the same society, force is the go-to method of both societies rather than subterfuge, they are big on hoarding magical artifacts and both are fans of old-world ThemeNaming. The difference is the Phoenicians have no cause, they are OnlyInItForTheMoney. It irks the Templars on a fundamental level to see a society so like themselves but who will whore out everything they are and have for a Swiss Bank transfer.



* StupidEvil: As the lore entries observe, while factions like the Big Three are putting their age-old conflicts on hold so they can prevent the Filth from destroying the world, the Phoenicians are still carrying on with hoarding artefacts and trying to backstab the other - even when it's possible that they might just have something potentially world-saving to offer the others. Worse still, they're not only assisting [[spoiler: Lilith and the vampires]] but according to "From Carthage To Cairo," [[spoiler: they're still allied with the Atenists even while the equally mercenary Kingdom have taken steps to distance themselves from the cult]]. And perhaps worst of all, the events of Issue #9 reveal that [[spoiler: they helped track down and deliver the Filth-device used to kick-start the Tokyo Incident.]]

Added DiffLines:

* {{Foil}}: To the Dragon. Both are cult-like organizations made-up of mostly splinter cells who only work together due to sharing the same philosophy and who see their agents purely as a means to an end. One of the differences are that while the Dragon adapt to free-will to remain in control, the Morninglight actively break down individuality.

* VirtualTrainingSimulation: The Sunken Library is equipped with a highly sophisticated virtual reality suite commonly used for training Council operatives; known only as "The Room," it can replicate environments and enemies alike in perfect detail. In "The Venetian Agenda," earning the Council's permission to access Tokyo requires an extended period of training by this method.

method. [[spoiler: For reasons unknown, Anansi Technology have their own version of "The Room" set up in Orochi Tower; it's not known if the technology was directly copied from the Library's model or if they developed the tech in the first place.]]



* ProperlyParanoid: He advises you not to trust anyone at all. In any other story, this might seem a little extreme, but as he points out, his suspicious demeanour is very justified given the state of affairs the Council and its allies are embroiled in. Plus, [[spoiler: the Phoenicians have bugged his office and have an entire taskforce keeping an eye on him.]]

A Morninglight follower and former medical student, Alina was one of a group of fellow cultists and potential recruits taken on a spiritual retreat to the Carpathian Mountains by Adrian Zorlescu. However, the Transylvania Morninglight have all fallen victim to a cascade of disasters, and Alina is no exception, having ended up stranded in the Shadowy Forest. Not knowing the area, unable to complete her work for the Morninglight and faltering in her beliefs anyway, she has decided to simply wait for death. Of course, in the meantime, she has a lot to say about the cult...

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Confronting you in the Illuminati Archives, he refrains from killing you because he knows that you're capable of returning from death. As such, he just knocks you out and leaves, sealing the exit behind him; more to the point, he doesn't expect this obstacle to hold you forever, and only bothers because it stands a good chance of slowing you down long enough for him to finish his work.

Added DiffLines:

* FantasticDrug: On top of all the mundane drugs he indulges in, Che will occasionally make use of a rather unique designer drug - but only on very specific occasions. [[spoiler: The "drug" is actually ''a live spider,'' and according to John, it's used as an alternative to viagra - presumably because the venom induces a RagingStiffie on top of all the other unpleasant symptoms. It worked well enough at the Dream Palace, though Che apparently looked dangerously close to suffering a heart attack.]]


Added DiffLines:

* HookersAndBlow: A logical conclusion to his wilder evenings. [[spoiler: Particularly his visit to Kaidan: as well as screwing hookers two at a time in the Dream Palace, he also indulged in mountainous quantities of drugs - a good deal of which was shared with John as part of the corruption gig.]]

* RedheadedHero: Though she spends most of the issue hooded, she's clearly a redhead. [[spoiler: Unfortunately, the hero part is all a sham, and her true identity as Lilith is quickly revealed to be both a FieryRedhead and an EvilRedhead.]]
