* Badass: In his first viewpoint passage, the Troll recognizes that her fighter (the [[SoleSurvivor last one]] still chasing the remnants of his squadron, ten members of which she killed herself) has performed exceptionally since the battle began. He automatically acknowledges that she is what his masters call a "[[TheSymbiote cralkhi]]" - that is, one of "the humans his masters inadvertently created for their own downfall" - and that she is an extremely dangerous foe. This just makes him [[BloodKnight want to kill her]] [[OmnicidalManiac even more]].

** [[spoiler:The Troll thinks he killed Ludmilla ("[[TheSymbiote the cralkhi")]] from the point that he blasts her fighter to pieces in low orbit. A major element of the story from that point is that her existence must remain a secret because the only weapon on the planet that can reliably destroy the Troll can only be fired by Ludmilla, because it's hardwired to her DNA. They could still use strategic-grade nukes (there's actually an F-18 Hornet overhead on standby during the climax, being flown by an extremely freaked-out pilot who has not been informed as to why he might be ordered to destroy half of North Carolina at any given moment), but if she is actually able to pull the trigger there's a much better chance of not killing a few million innocent bystanders.]]

* SoleSurvivor: Ludmilla and the Troll are the only survivors of a pair of StandardSciFiFleet battle groups that spent about a month (subjective time, at least, considering that they spent most of that time traveling at relativistic speeds) wiping each other out both before and after they [[TimeTravel went so fast they went back in time]]. [[spoiler:The Troll is unaware that Ludmilla survived for most of the book, however, because he thought he had killed her when he destroyed her fighter over the Atlantic. He only learns of her survival when she activates her blaster during the climactic final battle, an instant before she blows him to hell.]]

if the bits in Ace Pilot aren't a spoiler, then neither is this.

This just makes him [[BloodKnight want to kill her]] [[OmnicidalManiac even more]].
