* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler:The final battle ended with Savedra having to watch Ginerva, who she became friends with, kill herself rather than be possessed. Niko watched his father die, unable to do anything. Isyllt watched Kiril and Spider die, had lost Forsythia's ghost, and because she let the king die to be by Kiril's side she broke her oath and lost most of her power, leaving her without a job. In the end she decides its too painful to stay and leaves the country with Dahlia.]]

* ObfuscatingStupidity: Varis, Savedra's uncle. He wears gaudy close, aggravates others, and acts in a manner that belays his intelligence. [[spoiler:Which is why few suspect he's the one attempting to kill Mathiros.]]
* OurVampiresAreDifferent: The ''vrykoloi'' are vampires who live in catacombs beneath the city sewers, by ancient treaty with the Crown. While classified as spirits possessing the dead, they have some similarities with the [[LooksLikeOrlok "Nosferatu"]] school of vampire appearance, being fairly ugly to human eyes; they're yellow-eyed, pale, deathly skinny, with fangs, bat-like ears (often pierced), and a face only somewhat human-like. They can move impossibly quickly when they choose to, making fighting them difficult; silver, however, is a weakness. They shun sunlight mainly because of sensitive eyesight, as well as wanting to avoid notice; their treaty requires them to be discreet. They drink blood, obtained through willing or paid donors or from preying on the poor and helpless, and the venom they have make them unwilling to fight back. Isyllt classifies them as demons, but they are apparently all once human, somehow infected or converted; there are two ancient vampire elders (both female) named Aphra and Tenebris who rule their society.
