* HumanoidAbomination: The Witches of Khauran; they are born from some ancient curse that bedevils the royal family, marked by a red crescent-moon shape on their chests. [[OneGenderRace Always female]], they have an instinctive knack for foul sorcery and dark rites, compounded by a total lack of empathy and intense hedonistic urges. This is why the royal family kills the the Witches at birth, for if one were to live, she would be compelled to usurp control of Khauran and would subsequently ruin it in pursuit of her own endless desires for selfish indulgence and perverse pleasures.

* WhamLine: Conan wants to lead the Zuagir to liberate Khauran from Constantius. Olgerd argues that Constantius's mercenaries are too strong for them to defeat.

-->"Not if there were three thousand desperate Hyborian horsemen fighting in a solid wedge such as I could teach them," answered Conan.

-->"And where would you secure three thousand Hyborians?" asked Olgerd with vast sarcasm. "Will you conjure them out of the air?"

-->[[spoiler: "I ''have'' them,"]] answered the Cimmerian imperturbably. [[spoiler: "Three thousand men of Khauran camp at the oasis of Akrel awaiting my orders."]]

-->"''What?''" Olgerd glared like a startled wolf.
