And if bulk of the casualties ended up being on the Tau side, the Imperium would gladly do the same thing. The Imperium-Tau agreement isn't so much an alliance as it is a ceasefire until their mutual enemy goes away.]]

** In another story, a rather bored scribe is supposed to be writing the minutes of a rather dull meeting. Instead (clearly never thinking anyone would ever actually ''read'' said minutes) he eulogises about Colonel Kasteen and in particular the way the light sets off her red hair.

* LadyLand: According to Vail, women are considered superior on Nusquam Fundamentibus. Indeed, the command echelon of its first Imperial Guard regiment, the planetary governor, and the past few generations of planetary governor are all female. The senior Magos from the Adeptus Mechanicus is one of the few males to hold a position of authority on the planet, as it's a part of the Imperial government. The Imperium trains female Commisars specifically to deal with this sort of regiment.

* StayInTheKitchen: The female members of the 597th, including their Colonel, get this from a Tallarn regiment in ''The Traitor's Hand''. It gets gender-inverted in ''The Last Ditch'' when the [[LadyLand matriarchal]] locals are extremely matronizing to the male officers; even Cain has a hard time being taken seriously, and the Governor makes several comments suggesting he and Major Broklaw are just there as Colonel Kasteen's eye candy.

* StayInTheKitchen: StayInTheKitchen:
** In the first book, this is the attitude the male soldiers of the pre-597th amalgamated regiment have to their female counterparts after the two regiments have been merged. Even Broklaw has this attitude towards Kasteen (at least partly because he resents her being promoted above him on a technicality). Cain naturally spends the first act resolving this.

* RugbyIsSlaughter: Cain was a keen [[CallARabbitASmeerp Scrumball]] player at the Schola Progenium and states that the only team that could regularly beat the Commissarial cadets was the [[AmazonBrigade Sisters of Battle]] cadets--not because they were better players, but because they seemed to be under the impression that the aim of the game was to hospitalise the entire opposing team.
** Beije never did well at it, possibly because he was enthusiastically tackled by everybody whether or not he had the ball.
