Added DiffLines:

* MythologyGag: Jokes about the ghastly [[IndestructibleEdible Danaka Yoruk bars]] continue from the parent series. It turns out the Syndics can't stand the things either. One character palmed off the entire supply that they'd taken from a captured Alliance unit to an ISS unit. Since the snakes never came back, they apparently were either killed by the Alliance or killed by eating the Danaka Yoruks.

* NeverFoundTheBody: [[spoiler:Morgan]][[spoiler:Morgan]], invoked by name and averted in that [[spoiler:she]] didn't ''actually'' die until the next book. And then died in a very public way.

Added DiffLines:

* LikeAWeasel: CEO Boynes has a tendency to keep coming back and switching sides.


Added DiffLines:

* PragmaticVillainy: Iceni and Drakon are not exactly good and honorable, but moving towards that ideal is pragmatic. Brutal dictatorship led the Syndicate into chaos. Taking over neighboring star systems takes efforts and ties down troops, while making allies means more resources to fight the common enemy. Giving freedom and civil reforms means greater worker productivity and much less chance for assassination.

Added DiffLines:

* InappropriatelyCloseComrades: It's mentioned that the Syndicate Worlds put restrictions on relationships, but that these rules were often broken. Given the nastiness of the Syndic system, however, the breaches were often a case of either SleepingTheirWayToTheTop or SexualExtortion rather than actual romance. And then there's [[spoiler:the incident with Drakon and Morgan]].

Added DiffLines:

* FauxAffablyEvil: ISS CEO 'Happy' Hua, whose friendly appearance and demeanor has tricked many a person into telling her incriminating things about themselves and others in confidence, which she then exploits ruthlessly.

Added DiffLines:

* FullCircleRevolution: Drakon and Iceni are going out of their way to avert this, but there are times when they find themselves seriously considering acts that were typical Syndic behavior.


Added DiffLines:

* UnusualEuphemism: Some Syndic terminology. One common example is that people are not killed, they are 'Subject to Life Termination'.

** Morgan and Malin. To the point where Drakon asks Malin if they're involved. Malin reacts with a tremendous amount of disgust to the question, enough to convince Drakon they aren't.
