Add a spoiler tag.
* DigitizedHacker: Marcus Wall becomes this in ''The Albino Knife''. His extra power just makes him more sadistic and unhinged, wreaking havoc across the galaxy as well as drawing his enemies into a trap.

* BilingualBonus: In Swedish "spets" means tip or point, and "död" means "death". In the series, a "spetsdöd" is a weapon that kills things by shooting them with pointy darts.

* InVinoVeritas: Pen teaches Khadaji Pubtending alongside his Sumito lessons, both for its practicality (A good pubtender is always in demand across the galaxy) and this trope: -->'''Pen:''' Ah, but it is a perfect job for a priest, even one so un-priestly as I. Consider: who has a better opportunity to see people with their masks lowered than a pubtender? Men will confide things to you drunk they wouldn’t tell a brother when sober; stoned women will reveal secrets they’d never speak as pillow talk while straight. More than one pubtender has come from the ranks of practicing psychologists-or gone there from some bar.

Fix a couple of typos.
* OneManArmy: Khadaji, quite literally. He spends six months hitting Confed troops on the planet Graves with spetsdöd darts loaded with Spasm, a muscle-contorting chemical that ties them in knots for months, and claiming responsibility in the name of the Shamba Freedom Forces. Only when the first of his victims comes out of the coma does he reveal himself to the local garrison commander. And then darts ''him'' with Spasm for good measure.

* ImprobableAimingSkills: Played with. The Matadors are all very good shots, but Emile Khadaji's legend as "the Man Who Never Missed" had a little help from Khadaji himself. He kept a hidden box of spetsdöd darts from which he replenished the few misses he ''did'' make, so that when the shit eventually hit the fan he'd become a legend. (The caption on the page image is a paraphrase of something he said to a Confed officer in ''The Machiavelli Interface''.

* MartialPacifist: The Siblings of the Shroud are a largely pacifist order. However, they're all taught [[FantasticFightingStyle Sumito]], and are very *very* ''very'' good at it.it. They're also pragmatic about killing when the order itself is in danger. Threaten to destroy the order because they won't give you what you want? Your flitter is likely to have a mysterious engine failure and crash in the middle of the ocean.
