* CurbStompBattle: Alley's fight with the raiders after her family is killed is pretty damn one-sided. She gets home after the attack, activates The Tick, kills several raiders silently with her knife, then uses her fifty-caliber big game rifle to kill more raiders (including their leader as he tries to run), gets several grenade kills (complete with UnflinchingWalk), and manages to wipe out all 25 remaining raiders singlehandedly while shot several times and bleeding out. And this is ''before'' she gets a Bronze Age EldritchAbomination on her side!

It was explicitly mentioned that all the those 25 men needed to do to turn the tables on her was get two of their number back to the shuttle, and she exterminated them before they get a chance.

* BadassArmy: The Imperial Cadre. ''One'' of them takes out two dozen pirates with just a (admittedly powerful) hunting rifle, a knife, and weapons salvaged from earlier kills.

* GenreShift: The two prequel novels are pretty hard military sci-fi, which makes the sudden introduction of a figure from Myth/ClassicalMythology and shift into ScienceFantasy a little jarring.

* CassandraGambit: Keita asks Alley to explain how she survived a week in the snow with fatal injuries. Alley knows he'll spot it immediately if she lies, so she tells him the pure truth--that her life was saved by a being out of Greek mythology--and simply lets him assume she's crazy.

** Colonel McIlhenny combines this with FeedTheMole, he sends out a memo to a very small list of people saying that he expects to identify the traitor within a few weeks and then takes a vacation with no security fully expecting TheMole to attempt to kill him and prove that there is a mole. He does survive but barely.

Added DiffLines:

* BizarreSexualDimorphism: Rish females are two and a half to three meter tall mountains of muscle who are so massively built they look squat even with their height and in combat armour are individually a match for a human ''tank''. Rish males, not so much. Humans, even though they are small and weak by (female) Rish standards, consider them scrawny and puny.

* DynamicEntry: The Marine rescue force at Shallingsport announces their presence with airstrikes that obliterate the FALA troops assembling for a final rush that would have overrun and killed the last Alicia's force.


Added DiffLines:

* HeroicSacrifice: Many, as to be expected, including one by a Rish matriarch who allows Alicia to kill her, which will allow the rest of her clan to survive when they return home.
* HeterosexualLifePartners / PlatonicLifePartners: The two members forming a Cadre wing are noted to usually spend almost all their time together on duty and off, even taking leave together. Alicia and Tannis spend so much time together the latter eventually is considered another daughter by Alley's parents.


Added DiffLines:

* LastStand: At the end of the Shallingsport mission, there are 5 Cadre members out of the initial company force of 275 left standing between several hundred enemy troops and several hundred civilians, with 4 others wounded when the Marines make their DynamicEntry.


Added DiffLines:

* SnarkToSnarkCombat: Alicia, Tisiphone, and Megarea frequently get into it with each other.


Added DiffLines:

* TakeAThirdOption: Faced with a Rish clan that has been forced into a situation where they either win or will commit suicide (with nukes) before losing, Alicia comes up with a plan that involves a surprise attack on their headquarters and hand-to-hand combat with their leader, beating her and forcing her Rish subordinates to peacefully surrender.


Added DiffLines:

* UriahGambit: The Rish matriarch who was behind the Shallingsport ambush is punished several years later for the failure of the operation when she and her entire clan are sent on what is essentially a suicide assault on a human planet.


Added DiffLines:

* YourLittleDismissiveDiminutive: Invoked by the Rish by analogy when they refer to the human Emperor using masculine pronouns. Rish will refer to humans regardless of sex using female terms if they are being polite or consider the human a WorthyOpponent. Using male terms to describe anyone is considered an insult by the Rish as Rish males are small, weak, and considered generally pathetic.
