* UnresolvedSexualTension: Two interesting examples in which someone is attracted to someone who represents or manifests a part of themselves--a darker part of themselves that they have issues with. The [=UST=] in both cases represents a part of themselves that pulls at them, but which they think it would be wrong to embrace.
** All the way through ''God Stalk'', Jame and Bane seen on the verge of SlapSlapKiss. He's Jame's ShadowArchetype, and her attraction to him is symbolic of the darker side of her own nature, which draws her, but which she is determined not to give in to.
** Jame and Torisen's [=UST=] is symbolic of Torisen's struggle with self-acceptance. The story plays with the idea of twins as {{foil}}s, mirrors, other halves of each other. They have a ''lot'' of issues--Torisen's fear of Jame, jealousy of her, and fear of his own attraction, among others. One of the biggest issues, though, is that Jame is Shanir, and more importantly, so is ''Torisen'', but he denies it. She reminds him of this, and that's what ''really'' bothers him--much more than how this trait is present in ''her'', but how it's present in ''himself''. He can't be her lover until he accepts her--and he can't do that until he [[IAmWhatIAm accepts himself]].

* ZeroPercentApprovalRating: Played straight with Ganth, because his reign ended with him getting huge numbers of his own people killed, and then getting upset and running away like an angry toddler. Everyone who's alive to hate him today had family who was killed in that battle. Otherwise, it's mostly averted with the present lords--which kind of implies that Ganth might be a bit of a case of HistoricalVillainUpgrade.
** The current lords have followers with a mix of opinions on them. Torisen is trying his very best to be a good lord, but he's very aware that HundredPercentAdorationRating is impossible because it's not about being a good ruler, it's about whose interests you serve--and no matter what he does, half other half of the Kencyr are going to hate him. Meanwhile, despite the EnemyCivilWar, many Randir are ''fanatically'' loyal to Rawneth. None of Caldane's Kendar really seem to ''like'' him, but they are basically loyal to him. His Highborn family members tend to either ''love'' him or ''hate'' him.

They are also both masculine or androgynous after a fashion, making them a BifauxnenAndLadette duo.

While the series is sometimes incredibly gloomy, it is also, at times, hilariously funny. {{Bathos}} is used, and both the author and her characters manage to see [[BlackComedy absurdity in even the darkest places]], and Jame, always a very physical heroine, is a rich source of {{slapstick}} physical comedy as well as wry thoughts.
