** Actually, it used to be due to physiology, during the infancy of space travel, which is the purpose for which the Abh [[spoiler: were created in the first place]], but now with CasualInterstellarTravel, it is very much racism/classism.

* FantasticRacism: Abh and Humans. Considering that 'abh' can mean either 'part of the Human Abh Empore' ''in addition to'' 'part of the abh genetic race' this can get complicated.

** Subverted by the views of the Abh towards "normal" humans, who can become members of the Abh (Jinto/Ghintec being an example) and usually get treated equally. Then double subverted as there are two meanings to "Abh": Abh ''nationality'' and Abh ''genetic traits''. The latter are not required to acquire the former, but all (noble or otherwise title bearing) newborns including descendants of human-born Abh must have both (through pre-natal gene tweaking).Then Zigzagged as the Abh themselves tend to think anyone of the Abh nationality as their kin regardless of their genetics. For instance, they've been shown to assume human-born Abh can stand the same extreme accelerations as genetic Abh. Which they don't. Humans in general and the human nations in particular, on the other hand, squarely define as "Abh" whoever possesses their genetics. They look down on human-born Abh as defectors.

See a unique rank system; commissioned officers are for example collectively known as "flyers" and are divided into two categories, namely "flyer by His/Her Majesty's decree" (general officer) and "flyer by memorial to the trope page for details.throne" (field and junior officers). The specific ranks (with real life naval equivalents in parentheses) are as follows:

* SpellMyNameWithAnS: From Baronh to English by way of Japanese. Varying degrees of research failure and TheyJustDidntCare, depending on whether you're talking about the English anime, manga, or novel releases. As noted in CotS's entry on the trope page, the information on Baronh ''is'' out there -- [[ShownTheirWork Morioka was very thorough]] in his ConLang creation. The English phonetic spellings (like "Lafiel" as opposed to "Lamirh") are sometimes called "American Dialect Baronh" by the fans.

*** Justified in that authentic Baronh spellings would drive anyone but hardcore linguists crazy. "Lamhirh" is most closely pronounced "Lafiel"? It's questionable why authentic latin-alphabet spellings even exist for Baronh, seeing as it has its own alphabet...Then again Japanese has both its own alphabet and authentic latin-alphabet spellings. Presumably it was done to facilitate communication.

* FirstNameBasis: Jinto's unique relationship with Lafiel started when he asked her her name, something that ''no one'' had ever asked her before (being that she is the Imperial Princess, most Abh grew up knowing her face). Jinto later realizes his breach in etiquette, but Lafiel refuses to acknowledge him when he tries to be formal, so he relents. Lafiel reciprocates the gesture, usually referring to him as "Jinto" rather than "Baron Hyde" like most other Abh do.

* ShockingDefeatLegacy: The Humankind Abh Empire accumulates a series of tactical victories during the first few years of the war, and is generally assumed to be on its way to victory, until [[spoiler: The United Mankind uses the Hania Federation's territory to launch a surprise attack on Lakfakalle, the Empire's capital, which falls. The attack also claims Empress Ramaj's life, and suddenly the Empire's existence can't be taken for granted anymore.]]
