* HistoricalVillainUpgrade: [[Literature/TheCallistaTrilogy Durga]]. Much like AaronAllston did for [[Literature/TheCourtshipOfPrincessLeia Warlord Zsinj]] in the ComicBook/XWingSeries, Crispin took a one-dimensional villain created by another author and turns him into a more complex character.

* [[RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil Slavery Is A Special Kind Of Evil:]] A view shared by the protagonists throughout the series. Han runs away from his first job as a pilot for the Besadii Hutts when he discovers that their main business is slavery ([[spoiler:freeing a slave he'd fallen in love with in the process]]); later he's cashiered from the Imperial Navy after freeing another slave from his brutal Imperial taskmaster [[spoiler: Chewbacca, who escapes to pledge Han a life debt for it]]; and specifically only accepts a job smuggling for Jabba after he's made it clear that he will never transport slaves for him. Bria and Chewbacca, being former slaves themselves, naturally share this outlook [[spoiler: which is a big part of the reason Bria joins the Rebellion]], but contempt for slavery is widespread even beyond that-Lando's way of expressing contempt for bounty hunters, for instance, is that they're "on a level with slavers." Given that the protagonists and their friends are all drug smugglers, con artists, and other "scoundrels," arguably a case of EvenEvilHasStandards.

* BadGuysDoTheDirtyWork: How [[spoiler: Garris Shrike]] meets his end. [[spoiler: Han can't bring himself to shoot Shrike in cold blood, even though he knows that Shrike is a danger to him and he's trying to make himself pull the trigger. The problem is solved for him when another bounty hunter shoots and kills Shrike, so that ''he'' can collect the bounty on Han.]]
