* LoveMakesYouDumb: Bryan is aware that his passion for Mercy is blind and self-destructive, but he chooses not to care.
--> Beguiles my heart, I know not why,
--> And yet I love her till I die.



* MeaningfulName: Lots of them, since many characters are references to mythology. Also played for irony with Felice, whose name means 'happy' and who is ''very much not''.

* ButtMonkey: Tony Wayland, oh so much. This guy just can't catch a break [[spoiler: Until the very end]]. Of course, this is to be expected given that he is a not so subtle nod to the mythical [[Literature/WaylandTheSmith Wayland Smith]].

* TheFairFolk: The Tanu and Firvulag, who match well to the Seelie and Unseelie Courts respectively, the Tanu representing the tall and beautiful archetype, while the Firvulag the darker, more goblin-like side. Most of the named exotics correspond directly to members of [[CelticMythology the Tuatha de Danaan and the Fir Bolg or Fomor]] -- Nodonn/Nuada, Lugonn/Lugh, Pallol/Balor, et cetera.

The time-travelers arrive to discover the Pliocene is already inhabited by a dimorphic race of aliens ('exotics'). The exotics, who have fled their home galaxy because of religious persecution, are marooned on Pliocene Earth as well. The exotics have difficulty reproducing on Earth, and so have enslaved many of the humans in an effort to overcome this problem, interbreeding with the more robust humans and influencing the legends of CelticMythology and TheFairFolk.

[[JulianMay Julian May's]] Saga of the Exiles tells the story of human malcontents who leave the Literature/GalacticMilieu, a [[TheFederation Federation]] of six allied psychic races including Humanity, and travel via a PortalToThePast to the Pliocene Era of Earth's history 6,000,000 years ago. The past is not quite what anyone expected.
