** Nemes, when phase shifted, shows invulnerability second only to the Shrike. Even a laser measured in the gigawatts (stated to be the full energy output of a warship at TeamTaylorTechnology levels) does little more than seal her in.

* FantasticReligiousWeirdness: A very heavy theme throughout the series. In the first two books, religions have gone through some Changes. The Roman Catholic Church for example, is almost dead, and have made Jesuit philosopher Teilhard de Chardin a saint, integrating his teachings heavily into the Catechism. Judaism, With Isreal destroyed, has "lost it's significance". And while many communities exist, the whole practice has become [[ReplacementGoldfish like a theme park]], according to Sol at least. A syncretic religion called "Zen Gnosticism, [[BeenThereShapedHistory created in part by Martin Silenus]], has evolved out of what was Christianity and Buddhism, and is apparently the most followed faith in the Hegemony. And Islam has become something called "High Islam".

* AllHailTheGreatGodMickey: The Templars and the Voice of the Tree appear to worship [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Muir John Muir]], a major proponent for the preservation of American forests in the early 19th Century. A book by Muir is found among Het Masteen's possessions after [[spoiler:he is apparently killed by the Shrike.]] The Templar's devotion to Muir vaguely resembles that of Literature/BraveNewWorld's adulation of Henry Ford as a god-figure in the future.
