* VillainHasAPoint: Julian points out that dismissing his take on the food chain is hypocritical coming from humans, who enslave members of their own race for nothing more than a difference of skin colour.

* VillainHasAPoint: Julian points out that dismissing his take on belief in the food chain superiority of the vampire race giving them unlimited rights over humanity is hypocritical coming from humans, who enslave members of their own - after all, they're in the Antebellum South, where within one species the 'superior' race for nothing more than a difference of skin colour.has unlimited power over the 'inferior'. [[spoiler: Marsh admits he's right - [[AChatWithSatan and becomes an abolitionist.]]]]

* TheDragon: Sour Billy Tipton to Julian. He's a mix of TheIgor and a BattleButler, seeing to the day-to-day running of Julian's various fronts, venturing out into the world on his boss's behalf (mostly to abduct unsuspecting victims), and serving as Julian's guardian and protector during daylight hours.

Unlike most examples, though, he's unquestionably the physically weakest member of the villain team, being the only one who isn't a vampire.

* BadassCrew: The core crew of "Fevre Dream": [[TheCaptain Abner Marsh]], [[TheBrute Mike Dunn]], [[BadassBookworm Mr. Jeffers]], [[ChefOfIron Toby]]... [[spoiler: Sadly, they ain't badass enough to deal with the thousands years old vampire lord.]]

* BlackAndGreyMorality: Within the vampies' circle, it's stressed that many of them are not inherently bad people, but more slaves to the red thirst who kill for strength and sustenance rather than to derive any real pleasure from the act of murder. On the other hand, Julian's approach -- which essentially boils down to KillEmAll ForTheEvulz -- has many eager followers.

* CrushingHandshake: The burly Abner likes doing this as a show of strength and dominance, but finds himself on the loosing end when he attempts it on York.

* EvenEvilHasStandards: Joshua York was never what you could call evil, but he always viewed his feeding on humans as a regretful necessity. His hatred at humans that attempt to act like vampires is unbridled.

* HypercompetentSidekick: Damon Julian may be have occasional flashes of brilliance, but Sour Billy Tipton runs all his affairs to such an extent that Julian would clearly be a sad sight without the aid of Billy or someone like him. On the GoodGuys' side, Mr Jeffers fills this role for Abner Marsh.

* IControlMyMinionsThrough: Damon controls his vampire entourage through a variety of methods. Some flock to him [[BirdsOfAFeather out of preference]], others obey him out of respect and/or fear for the [[AssKickingEqualsAuthority bloodmaster]], while others do so out of tradition: it's unheard of for a vampire to oppose the bloodmaster.
** He controls Billy through FalseReassurance, evoking UndyingLoyalty. It's implied he's done this to a long line of chosen human servants in the past.

** ''Fevre Dream'' is both ominous and hopeful. It's a homophone for "fever dream," a mad vision. York wants to use the boat to fulfill his vision to unite his people, while Abner wants to fulfill his vision of defeating the fastest boat on the Mississippi.
