** You last see Margarete A.K.A. Mata Hari, in France in 1916, completing the ChainOfDeals to get her [[TheCameo cameo]] by giving her the file that will apparently be of great use to her nation.... Mata Hari was executed in France 1917 after she was caught moving on some very blatant national secrets... You may well have initiated Margarete's untimely death shortly after the events of the game.

*** This taken to it's logical extreme would also means this is why Albert has no delusions of being anything other than a villain, he knows BigBad is his assigned role.

** As we find out from Koudelka (In the manga), Roger and Albert, the Emigre' manuscript's use as an ArtifactOfDoom is only it's most limited function. If you are not blindsided by the promise of power and instead take a more philosophical view of life you will instead realize that the book is a solid method of deciphering God's plan A.K.A. reality it-self, leading to ''a '''lot''''' more you can do with it than use simple spells.

** Karin has a pretty depressing fate no matter how you spin it. [[spoiler:Ben Hyuga will end up as her SecondLove and Yuri will be her son, but she has only a few short years before she meets her violent end. She also loses her memory in the process, suffering the very fate Yuri himself was trying to avoid throughout Covenant.]]

** In ''From the New World'', all of Hilda's Magical Arts are one level easier to cast (They have one less Green hit area than normal.) I'd just realized that it's because she's a few-century old vampire with so much experience. Unlike Joachim, who learns his attacks fresh, Hilda is both an expert mage and creates these attacks herself, allowing for smoother and easier casts. This applying moreso to her offensive spells though.

** Some characters like Alice, Halley, and Anastasia have rather low SP, while some characters like the vampires have ridiculously high SP. FridgeBrilliance because the vampires are used to seeing supernatural things, have lived longer, and are thus desensitized; whereas the others have been relatively sheltered. Naturally, SP Growth is them being more "Desensitized" as they become used to seeing these creatures and fighting them.

The Harmonixers always have high SP because, well, that power threatens to drive them insane so they have to get used to it.



** Halley has ESP abilities in ''Shadow Hearts'' - they're nice, but suck a lot of his MP out. This actually makes sense when you consider he's not had that much time to ''train'' his abilities and that they sometimes pop up when he is having a tantrum. (He even shouts, "Gah! I hate you! I hate you!" when using his psychic powers.)
** The Sanity Points. Vampires always have high SP because they're used to seeing supernatural creatures on a day-to-day basis. People like Alice, Halley, Karin, and Anastasia who have low SP aren't so they're getting used to seeing these monsters. They also grow as they level up; as the character of course gets more and more desensitized to the existence of monsters, so it quite ''literally'' takes more to drive them insane, likewise, the vampire's SP never goes up because they've SeenItAll. The Harmonixers always have high SP because, well, that power threatens to drive them insane so they have to get used to it.

** Anastasia's SummonMagic operates through a camera and pictures; and she can't use the SummonMagic until she attains the proper picture. This is actually FridgeBrilliance because some people used to believe that cameras would steal your soul.

** In ''Covenant'' the village that Karen is investigating has very odd random encounters: killer toys like pull-string lions, duckies and so on. It makes more sense when you realize one of the party members you get later on is Gepetto. The game never says it outright but he probably was controlling all those toys to defend the village.
