* NotSoOmniscientCouncilOfBickering: The Onyx Wizards of the Andara can't seem to agree on anything, detaining Silchas Ruin's party unneccessarily until he pulls rank and tell them where to stuff it. Decision speed isn't helped by them singing their arguments, in which they can't even agree on the tempo and -- as far as Udinaas is concerned -- they're probably arguing about the length of their robes, anyway.

* SmallSecludedWorld: The Refugium is a small chunk of primeval tundra that's been squirreled away from any outside influence hundreds of thousands of years ago. It is populated by the last remnants of living, flesh-and-bone Imass and can be reached from the the outside, but only by knowing where it is or by first traversing the icy Jaghut Realm of Death. Rud Elalle, who grew up among the Imass of the Refugium, is at first eager to see more of the outside world, [[spoiler:but changes his mind quickly when he finds out its existence is at risk and becomes just as eager to die in the Refugium's defense]].

* PrecisionFStrike: Udinaas, though wordy, rarely cusses directly, which makes the one he delivers to Clip stand out:
--> '''Udinaas:''' Go fuck yourself.

to:

* PrecisionFStrike: Right after having several people turn up univited in his dreams, Udinaas -- already plagued by sleeplessness and general misery -- demands the group move on, revealing he knows that the day and night cycle within the realm they're traversing is being controlled by Silchas Ruin's will. Clip can't help himself and inserts a quip about Udinaas being too smart for his own good and gets settled with a PrecisionFStrike for his trouble by Udinaas, though wordy, rarely cusses directly, which makes the one he delivers to Clip stand out:
who usually never curses.
--> '''Clip:''' 'You understand too much. Did you hear me, Udinaas?'\\
'''Udinaas:''' Go 'Go fuck yourself.'


Added DiffLines:

* SlaveryIsASpecialKindOfEvil: Udinaas spends the majority of ''Reaper's Gale'' discussing slavery at length. As a baseline, he abhors slavery in all its guises, but also argues that being a slave was the best thing to have happened to him. He starts out as [[HappinessInSlavery reasonably content with his lot]], but then, his 'freedom' prior to being enslaved consisted of indentured servitude on a galley to repay a family debt, while being a slave of the Tiste Edur meant enough food and shelter. Nonetheless, he goes as far as to argue that he hates all forms of inequality and slavery so much that by virtue of his very nature he would've felt compelled to rebel if he had not been kept busy scraping fish all day and that this would have affected way more people negatively than just him. When he finally ends up free and without debt, he reacts very testily to anything reminding him of his former situation and goes as far as comparing Seren Pedac's spying on his dreams to rape, assuming she was only willing to disregard his privacy ''because'' he used to be a slave and remains so in her subconsciousness.

* ResurrectiveImmortality: It has been seen in ''Literature/MidnightTides'' that Rhulad's sword forcefully resurrects him every time he is killed in battle. By the time ''Literature/Reapers/Gale'' comes around, it has aquired him the title of Emperor of a Thousand Deaths, because the Edur are now seeking champions to fight and kill Rhulad to make him stronger all over the world.

* ImmortalityHurts: Rhulad doesn't bear physical scars from his deaths, but every time he gets resurrected by his sword, his psyche breaks more and more. The results are noticed by several people around him and it is utterly pitiful.
