** This is true for any enemy of Mother Church, especially after Clytahn had over ''two thousand'' people tortured and killed in Zion for being part of the Reformist movement within the church or merely related to them. No exceptions were made for women and children.

* SaintlyChurch: The Church of Charis under Archbishop Maikel Staynair.

to:

* {{Sabotutor}}: The ''Holy Writ'' is accurate in its descriptions of a wide range of phenomena. However, it presents this information in such a way as to discourage people from questioning things too deeply by attributing the affects to the miracles and wrath of the Archangels. For example, it describes requirements for proper sanitation, but the sicknesses that result from not meeting those requirements is the wrath of Pasquale.
* SaintlyChurch: The Church of Charis under Archbishop Maikel Staynair. It pays lip service to many of the Church of God Awaiting's tenets, but stresses the individual's relationship with God has gradually phased out reverence to the Archangels. With Staynair at the helm, the Church is a powerful force for good, even if it is based in the false religion Langhorne and Bedard created.

In the face of extinction, the human race played a last desperate gamble. They secreted a fleet away to terraform and colonize a new homeworld and prepare for Round Two. To remain hidden long enough to make sure the Gbaba wouldn't find them, those in charge of Operation Ark decided that on this new world, humanity would abandon its technology, so the Gbaba couldn't track them down by their emissions.

* AccidentalTruth: Clyntahn and the rest of the Group of Four claim that Charis's schism with the church is the result of a long-term plan by Shan-wei worshipers in Charis to subvert the authority of the Church of God Awaiting. Considering what the church sees as demonic, and the tools Merlin brings to the table...

** Prince Nahrmahn of Emerald and his wife Princess Ohlyvya were betrothed at a young age, and eventually ended up falling in love, much to their mutual surprise. (And benefit, as the practically-minded Ohlyvya tempers some of Nahrmahn's... more volatile characteristics.)

When a spacefaring humanity discovered evidence that a hostile alien race was likely to try and annihilate them, they spent the next ten years preparing for the inevitable war.

** The best example is Nimue, already a name from ArthurianLegend, going by Merlin and naming Cayleb's sword Excalibur. The names of almost every ''seijin'' are Welsh. Not even necessarily Welsh names, either.

Added DiffLines:

* NavalBlockade: Both sides try this against each other. The Church tries to do it through politics, which falters because too many ports are dependent on the Charis trade for survival. Charis simply sinks or captures every ship flagged to a nation working for the Church that they can find, and since they have a bigger navy than the rest of the world combined, they manage to make this work.

* WhamLine: "That's why I'm speaking to ''you'' about it... [[spoiler:Ahbraim." Aivah to Merlin, book seven.]]
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: The fraudulent Earl of Hanth, who had a major storyline in ''Off Armageddon Reef'', and was last seen heading to Zion in ''By Schism Rent Asunder'' in order to be "the only legitimate Charisian noble to declare for the Church" has vanished completely. No mention of a ship sinking, of being killed simply for being a Charisian, or of making it there either to be tortured by the Inquisition, or to actually be part of their plans. We don't even know if they just ignored him or not.

** Grand Vicar Erek is apparently such a nonentity in Church politics that when [[spoiler:Duchairn]] launched a coup and took control of the Church, the book doesn't even bother mentioning what happened to its previous nominal head.
