Added DiffLines:

* HiddenVillain : Although she isn't mentioned until the Ravenor series, Lilean Chase of the Cognitae is almost an overarching one for the entire series. Eisenhorn spends a great deal of time trying to track her down, unsuccessfully.

* {{Badass}}: Several. Harlon Nayl, both Betancores, Eisenhorn himself has moments (to the point where a ''SpaceMarine'' is scared of him), Cherubael, Commodus Voke, Brother Guilar [[TookALevelInBadass takes a level]], and Librarian Bryntoth (implied).
** For non-40k familiar tropers, a "Librarian" in 40k is a genetically engineered super-soldier with the power to tap into a primal chaotic force in battle. "Librarian" is their day job.

* {{Spinoff}}: Interrogator Ravenor, a supporting character in the ''Eisenhorn'' books who was pretty much developed from a [[ChekhovsGunman namedrop]] in the ''GauntsGhosts'' series, later became the protagonist of his own novel series. ''Eisenhorn'' itself is a spinoff of the ''TabletopGame/{{Inquisitor}}'' GaidenGame to ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'', and the first novel was released concurrently with the game itself.

* ContinuityNod: Inquisitors Heldane and Literature/{{Ravenor}} both appear in Abnett's earlier ''GauntsGhosts'' novels. Titan Princeps Hekate (from the Graphic Novel series ''Titan'') is also mentioned in ''Malleus'', albeit as an old man near retirement, which was a pleasant surprise for fans, as his own series by that point seemed to have ended in a HeroicSacrifice.

The first book, ''Xenos'', starts with Gregor Eisenhorn and his crew pursuing a heretic in a seemingly routine task when they uncover a mysterious artifact bearing the preserved mind of the heretic Pontius Glaw. In the subsequent investigation, Eisenhorn and crew find themselves embroiled in a heretic group's plan to contact aliens for a demonic text.

* TheChessmaster: Both {{Big Bad}}s fall handily into this. Eisenhorn himself flirts with the trope; in many ways, he is like a Cold War spymaster, only with PsychicPowers and a [[ImplausibleFencingPowers way with a sword]].

Added DiffLines:

* HonorBeforeReason: Eisenhorn on a several occasions, most notably [[spoiler: honoring an agreement to build a new body for the dangerous heretic Glaw]] and [[spoiler: rebinding Cherubael into a new daemonhost just because he couldn't stand the fact that he'd been manipulated into returning Cherubael to the warp.]] Both end up biting him in the ass in a major way.

** Also, Aemos twice mentions Tyranids in passing, while {{Ravenor}} would reveal that both stories took place before they were named or (officially) encountered.
