* ComputerVoice: Ship's computers speak with a female voice by default. A male character who spends long stretches of time with no one but his cat and his ship's computer changed its voice from the default, because apparently hearing a female voice made him stop at whorehouses too often.

* IKissYourHand: In the first book, Baron Manjari makes a point of actually kissing Acorna's hand at her social debut instead of miming it as expected. [[spoiler:He's just dosed her with a contact poison applied to his lips (he wipes them clean immediately afterward and [[CarryingTheAntidote takes the antidote]], claiming it's his daily medication). Too bad he didn't know about Acorna's ability to neutralize toxins]].



* MysticalWhiteHair: Acorna has white hair and is a human-unicorn hybrid, with healing and other magical powers through her horn, though the whiteness of her hair stems for her people's tendency to go white after spending large amounts of time in space.



* SacredLanguage: One planet considers Acorna a god because she speaks the native tongue of ''her'' people. They had been visited many ''many'' years ago by [[spoiler:Aari and Grimalken]], and their priests had miraculously picked up the language in a single visit.
* ScienceFantasy: Played with. Acorna looks like a "unicorn girl", complete with a horn on her forehead, unearthly beauty, and the power to purify water and air. Except she's not exactly magical: she's an alien, and the setting is basic science fiction with spaceships and interplanetary travel. Then it is revealed that her species is genetically-engineered by aliens who combined their own DNA with that of unicorns they rescued from Earth.
