Added DiffLines:

* LoopholeAbuse: The interrogation/torture technique "fusion" makes a human/plant hybrid who must follow orders. Usually, they're docile, but strong-willed people retain some part of their personalities, and if they aren't explicitly told not to attack their captors, guess what they'll do?

* AlternateHistory: The Weird's history is significantly different from the Broken's. For one thing, their version of North America has multiple kingdoms the size of a few states, like the Republic of Texas.

* BerserkButton: Spider can't deal with being scalded since his abusive father dumped boiling water on him when he was a child.



* FantasticRacism: Changelings are widely viewed as vicious, inhuman monsters. In some countries they're strangled at birth; in others (like William's home country) they are forced into hellishly abusive academies from infancy (if their mothers even care enough to hand them over to the government) and then drafted into the military.



* VoluntaryShapeshifting: Jack is a lynx changeling, and [[spoiler:William]] is a wolf changeling. Since changing in the Edge takes several minutes and is quite painful, Jack has to learn self-control to not react instinctively and change when presented with a threat.

* WasOnceAMan: The Hand magically alters some of its agents to be killing machines. The problem is that the amount of magic needed warps them so totally they're not human anymore and makes them so incredibly vicious they have to be babysat to make sure they don't do something like ''eat the target''.
**There's also an interrogation technique called "fusion": a human and a specific type of plant are forcibly joined, to make a hybrid that has all the human's memories but is unable to lie or disobey a direct order. [[spoiler: It happens to Cerise's mom.]]


Added DiffLines:

* WouldHurtAChild: Spider. Particularly changeling children.

bayou, and Cerise Mar, who's just become head of the poor but land-rich Mar clan after the mysterious disappearance of her parents. It turns out that they have common cause--William has been employed by the Weird spy agency the Mirror to retrieve a valuable journal before the Louisianian Hand can, and guess who the Hand kidnapped in order to get the journal first?

Added DiffLines:

* AbsurdlySharpBlade: In Bayou Moon, the Mar clan can all do this by extending their flash along the edge of their blades. It's called the Path Of The Lightning Sword and never fails to be badass in it's use.


Added DiffLines:

* BornLucky: Kaldar Mar has this as a natural magical talent, being able to do some fairly incredible stuff, so long as it's a bet. For example "I bet you a kiss I can reach your porch without you shooting me"
