* AnimalWrongsGroup: The Saints are this trope on the scale of a star nation, though their leadership is later revealed not to believe their own rhetoric.


Added DiffLines:

* EcoTerrorist: The series features these as the villains opposed to the Empire of Man. They're an interstellar empire of environmentalist extremists who are a StrawmanPolitical nation for the authors.

** Several Mardukan poisons are shown to not work on humans, and vice-versa. One poison, which to Mardukans is tasteless, tastes like rotten fennel to humans. Another poison fails much, much harder-- it inspires the doc to check other native chemistry that's not food-related, which leads him to discover an effective ''dietary supplement'' for human biology, ''saving'' the lives of much of the expedition by stretching out the dwindling supplies of manufactured supplements they need to survive on the partially-indigestible Mardukan diet.

Another poison fails much, much harder-- it it's not only harmless to the humans it's meant to kill, but meditating on its failure inspires the doc to check other native on the chemistry that's not food-related, which of other inedible local species.

* HeroicBastard: The titular prince, [[OverlyLongName Roger Ramius Sergei Alexander Chiang MacClintock]], after [[TookALevelInBadass he took multiple levels of badass]]. He also develops into the other type of bastard, the literal meaning already applicable since the Empress had never married his father:
-->'''Sgt. Catrone:''' Order received and understood, and I will comply. You bastard.\\
'''Prince Roger:''' That I am. Literally and figuratively. The last bastard standing. The flag of the ''Basik's'' Own wears a bar sinister proudly.

* TheEmpath: Phaenurs, a race of centaroid-lizards whose abilities make them {{Living Lie Detector}}s. They are one of the only races never to engage in physical war or have never engaged in cannibalism.

* NestedOwnership: D'nal Cord [[IOweYouMyLife owes Roger his life]], and later acquires a life-debt of his own when he saves Pedi Caruse from pirates. Prince Roger has a good laugh at the latter, noting that D'nal's OhCrap reaction when he realizes Pedi's culture has life-debts exactly mirrored his own after he saved D'nal.

* BrainsAndBrawn: Krindi Fain is a bright, up-and-coming laborer-turned-soldier who is tagged for command pretty much from the start and is also hand-picked to sit in on at least one critical weapon-design project. His right-hand Mardukan, Erkum Pol, is huge, even for a Mardukan, prefers to fight with tables or a plasma cannon he appropriated from a human tank, and responds to any and every question with "Yes, sir!"

** Roger at one point mentions in passing that he intends to introduce Mardukan barleyrice to the rest of the Empire, since it is more flavorful and nutritious than the equivalents grown elsewhere.

** Pedi Karuse. It falls behind both her ({{lampshaded}}) FieryRedhead personality and being a {{Badass}} as a defining trait for her, but she's the ''only'' fashion & makeup loving Mardukan (since most came from cultures that didn't wear clothes), and she's the only woman of any species to qualify on the team as well.

** Prince Roger takes ''several'', and goes from being thought of as a pompous LongHairedPrettyBoy to {{Badass}} [[RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething warrior prince]] over the course of the series, mentally toughened up by [[DeathWorld Marduk]] as he treks across it to get to a spaceport so he can return home.
