He’s just been [[{{Blackmail}} hired]] to find The Word of Kemmler, the personal spellbook of a powerful necromancer, which is also being hunted by any number of Kemmler’s apprentices and, really, anyone who would want to unlock the secrets of powerful necromancy--including a spell that would allow the caster to become a demi-god by devouring the spirits of the dead.

* UsefulNotes/WorldWarOne: It was Kemmler's fault, apparently. He spent over a hundred years preparing the foundations of it.
* UsefulNotes/WorldWarTwo: Kemmler sided with ThoseWackyNazis to turn the war into his own personal undead playground. The White Council sided with the Allies, and were finally able to [[DeaderThanDead punch his ticket]].

** Knights of the Cross have a tendency to miraculously show up exactly when and where they are needed, usually attributed to God manipulating coincidence to make things happen just right. While he is being tortured by Liverspots Harry muses that this is exactly the sort of situation where his friend Michael or another Knight of the Cross would come out of nowhere to save him. Michael does not suddenly appear to save the day [[spoiler:but unexpectedly, Butters does. Hmm...]]

* {{Deconstruction}} : It's made clear that having supernatural sexual appeal ''that you can't turn off'' isn't nearly so great when you can't live off the family fortune and are trying to hold down a minimum wage job. Thomas keeps getting sexually assaulted by his female co-workers and/or fired.

* WeaponsOfMassDestruction: The Red Court use [[spoiler: [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sarin sarin gas]], which legally ''is'' a weapon of mass destruction,to attack the White council hospital in the Congo]].

* HopeBringer: [[spoiler:Harry's dead father acts as this to his son, coming to him to help him after Harry needed to consult Lasciel to save the day and Cassius' death curse. On the former, he tells Harry that what he did doesn't make him a monster and he still has freewill to choose another path. On the later, it was a bad curse because ''everyone'' is alone when they die, but that doesn't mean he will be alone up to that moment and won't be alone after he does die]].

* ChekhovsClassroom: Harry tells Butters a few things about zombies, including [[spoiler:how Grevane has some from the early 1900s and would made them stronger than any of the fresh kills he made. Now, with Sue being millions of years older than even the oldest undead or spirit, she is the top undead]].
