* OurDragonsAreDifferent: in the Tree of Swords and Jewels the plot is driven, although fora long time it's not clear, by Nathair Stheach, imprisoned under the roots of the titular tree, who Arafel stated to guard against. He's been driving the conflict, manipulating the Drow, and breathing distrust and poison in everyone's ears, to set him free.

** Invoked often in the Dreaming Tree, where to know a name and call it three times is to call or bind the one it belongs to. Arafel gives the children the name of a water horse, who aides them during the final battle.

Her real name is actually "C.J. Cherry," with no "H" on the end. This was added by her first publisher, who felt that "C.J. Cherry" did not [[AsLongAsItSoundsForeign look exotic enough]] to grace the cover of a science fiction book.

* PregnantBadass: You ''do not'' piss off a pregnant iduve. The hormones turn their natural strength and viciousness UpToEleven, and they become wildly unpredictable even by the standards of their own kind. When a clan ship's leader is pregnant, other ships avoid them like the plague.

*HappinessInSlavery: In ''Hunter of Worlds'', Isande and all the other noi kami are essentially slaves to the iduve--while they're allowed to live mostly as they see fit, disobeying an iduve is unthinkable, there's no way for them to leave, and nobody does anything if a pissed-off iduve kills one of them (unless the dead nas kame happens to be a favorite of another, more powerful iduve). But most of them seem happy and content, and Isande looks down on Aiela for being world-born, finding her own ancestry of service to the iduve far more impressive than his important politician father.

* ManofSteelWomanOfKleenex: Played with. Iduve are much stronger than every other species in the setting, but when they engage in pleasure-mating they're usually able to keep themselves under control and it's not a problem. However, Margaret treats Tejef like her equal since she wasn't raised to be a nas kami, so he sometimes gets the urge to respond to her as he'd respond to an iduve woman--ie, violently and with his full strength, since iduve having sex beat the crap out of each other first and during. He's able to repress it but he has to get away from her first.

* DysfunctionJunction - ''Finity's End'': A boy abandoned by his family to the plight of an addict mother for two decades. ''Tripoint'': A boy raised by an abusive mother, the product of rape and kidnapped by his father's ship. ''Union'': A woman raised to be her own clone and having to fight off her own predatory sexuality and deal with the raped clone of a man she wanted to rape... twice, while growing up. If there was a happy family in her universe, Cherryh killed it with fire.
