* {{Biotech}}: The Lyrinx are masters of this due to their fleshwarping arts.

to:

* {{Biotech}}: The Lyrinx are masters of this due to their fleshwarping arts. But despite being able to create new life forms and biologically-based magitek items, they hadn't gotten around to being able to cure a dangerous fungal infection.
* BiologicalWeaponsSolveEverything: Averted, the Old Humans discover that the Lyrinx are vulnerable to fungal infection and so they try to bombard the Lyrinx underground cities with it. There's not enough fungus to go around and it's easy to contain the infection if detected early enough, so tens of thousands were infected instead of the whole species. But the idea that the humans were attempting to eradicate them, so alarmed the Lyrinx that they mobilized everyone to wage an extinction war on humanity.


Added DiffLines:

* KryptoniteFactor: The Lyrinx are an unstoppable threat to the humans, but they do have some weaknesses that had been exploited. They fear deep water and can't swim, there's a fungus that is deadly to them but doesn't harm humans, and a sufficiently loud telepathic broadcast will knock them out. [[spoiler: It's the mindcry, when weaponized, that defeated the Lyrinx]]


Added DiffLines:

* TookAThirdOption: [[spoiler: Rather than force a truce or exterminate the Lyrinx, Tiann transport them to the forest world of Faellem.]]

* EldritchLocation / DeathWorld: The Void. This is an other-dimensional nexus that is hostile to life and constantly undergoing change change. Only those creatures capable of regular physical adaptation can survive there for long. For an idea, the mighty Charon race were reduced to 100 survivors and othe Lyrinx were originally human but had to use magic to convert themselves into sphinx-like beings.

Added DiffLines:

* BigDamnHeroes: Averted, after getting captured by Jal-nish, Irsis thinks that Tiann will come up with a plan and fly into the rescue like she always does. Tiann had instead left the area completely and retired to be with her father. Irsis winds up getting decapitated.


Added DiffLines:

* TheMagicGoesAway: At the end of Well of Echoes, Tiann fears that the Secret Art's power is too much for any one person. So she globally alters the Nodes that powers the Secret Art, thus cutting off the power for the people and machinery that uses it. This comes to bite humanity back in the ass.


Added DiffLines:

* MilesGloriosus: Grand Commander Orgestre is the head of the remaining human military forces in Well of Echoes. He loves parading about in military regalia and proudly wears his many medals and accolades on his uniform. Only...he's never been in active service before, he bought his commission as a way to keep out of the frontlines. When he's faced with the possibility of fighting the Lyrinx for the first time, he constantly argued against taking the offensive against them and after a major setback, he leads the retreat while having his underling General Troist do the rearguard. But when the Lyrinx are decisively losing, he's the first and loudest voice to advocate their extinction.

* ClockPunk: The level of technology is a mix of Dark Ages Europe and the intricately geared, magically powered clockwork mechanisms. So primitive flying machines exist alongside people using crossbows.

* CrapsackWorld: Especially under the Scrutators and Lyrinx invasion. Basically the invasions are so devastating that Old Humans face extinction. So much of humanity has been coerced into factory work, fighting on the front lines or becoming a human brood mare.

to:

* KnightTemplarKnightTemplar: The Scrutators in their effort to repel the Lyrinx, spare no human in their goal of defeating the invaders whether it's sending thousands to their deaths in battle or dragooning available women into being brood mares. [[spoiler: It turns out to be a big lie, the Scrutators council had long resigned themselves to the idea of not defeating the Lyrinx, instead their efforts have turned to doing what they can to keep power and indulge themselves.]]
