* GoodColorsEvilColors: A character with red hair is ''almost'' always Good in Chesterton. Less frequently, BlondGuysAreEvil, especially if the blondness looks somehow artificial gilded. However, this novel subverts this with the honourable protagonist Syme (who is blond) and the antagonist(?) Gregory (maybe), who is red-haired.

"''To abolish God!" said Gregory, opening the eyes of [[KnightTemplar a fanatic]]. "We do not only want to upset a few despotisms and police regulations; that sort of anarchism does exist, but it is a mere branch of the Nonconformists. We dig deeper and we blow you higher. We wish to [[AboveGoodAndEvil deny all those arbitrary distinctions of vice and virtue, honour and treachery]], upon which mere rebels base themselves. The silly sentimentalists of TheFrenchRevolution talked of the Rights of Man! We hate Rights as we hate Wrongs. We have abolished Right and Wrong.''"\\
