* DeliberateValuesDissonance: All aspects of Igbo tradition are presented in story, including things such as the subjugation of women and killing of twin babies. The English themselves are portrayed as holding the imperialistic views of the day. While there is one missionary, [[GoodShepherd Mr. Brown]], who tries to work peacefully with the Igbo, he gets replaced with [[TheFundamentalist James Smith]], who goes out of his way to provoke conflict with the non-Christian Igbo.
