* CrystalDragonJesus: The Redeemers are blatantly like Christianity while obviously not the same religion, the subtlety of which analogy is perfectly captured by the fact that their object of worship is a Son of God who was hanged. The briefly touched details of their schism with the Antagonists makes it further clear that the Redeemers correspond to Roman Catholicism and the Antagonists to Protestantism. The Redeemers are also a distillation and exaggeration of everything that was ever wrong about the church. A [[{{Jesus}} Jesus of Nazareth]] is actually mentioned in the novel, but the most we hear is that someone at least thinks he played the role of Jonah in the story about being swallowed by a fish.

* LowFantasy: So low it's not even certain there is ''anything'' fantastic in the whole book. Only a couple of things suggest it -- the sweet-smelling substance recovered from inside a tortured young woman's body doesn't seem like a natural thing, and Kitty the Hare appears to be not exactly human. Of course, if Cale's mentor is right about him, that's certainly a fantasy element.

* Adorkable: Vague Henri is a lot softer than his comrades [[JerkAss Kleist]] and [[TheStoic Cale]], genuinely sees the latter as a friend, can get embarassed quite easily, and is the kindest of the trio about Riba. Considering the kind of environment he was raised in, and [[CrapsackWorld the world they live in]], this is enough to make him invoke this trope. It doesn't stop him from kicking some ass when the situation calls it.
