*HolyCity: There are two key ones that factor in the story.

**Shimeh is the second holiest city in Inrithism for being a site of key scriptural importance for Inri Sejenus. It's often a point of pilgrimage for Inrithi. Reconquering Shimeh becomes the object of the Holy War declared in the first trilogy. Shimeh is also a holy city to the Fanim because the Cishaurim keep their holy tabernacle, the Ctesarat, maintained within Shimeh.

* EstablishingCharacterMoment:
** Cnaiür is introduced trying to give sensible strategic advice to his fellow tribal leaders, but they mock and ignore him. This establishes Cnaiür as a skilled warrior and hints at the shame that stalks his every step.
** Anasûrimbor Kelmomas is introduced pretending to play like a normal child near his mother, but secretly torturing a beetle and feeling kinship with a statue of Ajokli, god of deceit. This reveals Kelmomas as a secret EnfantTerrible and establishes his link to Ajokli.

* BarbarianHero: Cnaiür is a deconstruction of this trope: he comes from a tribe with Mongolic customs who are obsessed with war and pride themselves on being pure and hardened by the difficulty of their life on the Jiünati Steppes. Cnaiür even looks like ConanTheBarbarian: he has black hair, blue eyes, and pale skin. However, rather than being a heroic counterweight to the corruption of the Three Seas and the Inrithi civilization, Cnaiür is even worse: he is insanely paranoid, cannot understand why the Inrithi soldiers bring prostitutes along as part of their campaign ([[DeliberateValuesDissonance when one can just rape the native women of the land one conquers]]), is on the constant brink of a murderous rage, and [[spoiler:ends up working with the Consult]].

* WellDoneSonGuy: Sorweel is a posthumous example, given that his biggest fear is not living up to his late father's expectations.

* MamasBabyPapasMaybe: [[spoiler: ''The Judging Eye'' reveals that Seswatha may have been the father of Anasûrimbor Nau-Cayûti while having an affair with Celmomas's wife, Suriala.]]

* AwesomeButImpractical: When besieging Shimeh, Eleazaras delights in using his full strength to rain destruction on the city, pulling down massive stone buildings as he marches through the streets, but his fellows warn him that he's exhausting himself before any of the primary Cishaurim have even taken the field.

* NoGuyWantsAnAmazon: Saubon reflects that he prefers striplings to large women, but will make an exception for the leading Swayali witch in the Great Ordeal because of her exotic red hair.
