* DesignatedLoveInterest: With the exception of Althalus-Emmy, all the romantic unions are handwaved or done off-screen in the span of two paragraphs. The most ludicrous was Andine and Elial, who passed from being obsessed with killing him (he slaughtered his father in blood frenzy) to love him desperately in the span of two weeks, after being chewed once by Althalus and Gher, because he wasn't really at fault but the person who contracted him as a soldier. The rest are not better.

Added DiffLines:
* BeautyEqualsGoodness: All the heroes are beautiful, strong, wise or great. All the villains are deformed, ugly, scarred and smell bad. Without exception, if a character is described in negative adjectives, they are minions of Daeva.

Added DiffLines:
* InvincibleHero: The Villains are, to a T, incredible stupid and incompetent compared to the heroes and in the over Five different war fronts, they never, ever so much as put a dent into the heroes plans [[spoiler: the closest was when Perka nearly killed Eliar, cutting the heroes from the doors, and yet their armies were slaughtered over and over and over again with barely an effort]].

Added DiffLines:
* NegativeContinuity: With Dweia appearance. The first time she was described as otherworldly beautiful, a level of perfection that left all the heroes speechless and was obviously beyond mortal ken. All her other encounters with mortals (Arums mostly), her beauty is unremarked by anybody or treated as any other woman in her real form. This is never explained in anyway.

Added DiffLines:
* SlaveryIsASpecialKindOfEvil: Averted. While Althalus would prefer to die and the mines are considered the ultimate form of evil, most of the characters are indifferent to slaves or are quite ready to profit from it with war prisioners (Ghebel and Kalor).
