* InspiredBy: WordOfGod says that ''Chalion'' was inspired by the history of Spain during the ''Reconquista'' period, specifically Isabella of Castile (Iselle dy Chalion) and Ferdinand of Aragon (Bergon dy Ibra). If you're familiar with the history of the period, this inspiration shows: most of the major characters and many of the events have real-life counterparts -- including some events you'd think couldn't possibly have parallels.

* MadeASlave: Cazaril comes home fresh from the [[GalleySlave galley rowbanks]] at the beginning of ''The Curse of Chalion''. And it had been so bad that after being freed, at first he starts weeping at the slightest cause. Yet his protecting of a fellow rower plays an important part in ending the curse.

* SatanIsGood: Well, [[SatanicArchetype the Bastard]] is more akin to [[NorseMythology Loki]]. He may have a rude sense of humor and assist in the occasional (justifiable) murder-suicide, but his church runs orphanages and is largely responsible for the enlightened views of homosexuality that most of Chalion's world has.

*** Technically, it's only ''attempted'' death magic which is forbidden. If you succeed, it's a literal miracle of justice. But you're still dead. (And your corpse still needs to be burnt before sunset)

*** Technically, it's only ''attempted'' ''attempting'' death magic which is forbidden. a crime - it's essentially attempted murder. If you succeed, it's the theology of Chalion rules that you have been granted a literal miracle of justice. justice by The Bastard, one of the Gods. But you're still dead. (And dead, and your corpse still needs to be burnt before sunset)sunset in case something else takes posession of it. [[spoiler: Unless you're Cazaril, that is, who is deeply uncomfortable with the implications of his survival.]]
