** Connor gets this over the course of the series. In ''[=UnWind=]'', [[spoiler: he takes over the Graveyard and the care of the AWOLs who live there, but with no Christ-like undertones. ''[=UnWholly=]'' adds betrayal by Starkey, who he had adopted into his inner circle and an attempt to sacrifice himself for his followers. Most of ''[=UnSouled=]'' involves him being persecuted by Proactive Citizenry and the Juvenile Authority while fostering the burgeoning social movement against unwinding. And of course, ''[=UnDivided=]'' has his unwind and subsequent "resurrection."]]
** Lev to a lesser extent. [[spoiler: Not only is he occasionally called 'blond Jesus' in the later books, he becomes a quasi-religious figure to the rescued tithes at the Cavenaugh Mansion and gets himself shot, planning to sacrifice himself to bring attention to the evils of unwinding. He even gets 'crucified' in the first book!]]

* LightIsNotGood: The harvest camps. Between the PushingDaisies-esque decor (bright pastel colors on everything, including the surgeons' sunshine yellow scrubs) and the [[CrapsaccharineWorld sickening platitudes painted on every wall]]...it would give even Creator/TimBurton nightmares.

* BreakHerHeartToSaveHer: Connor's coldness toward Risa in ''[=UnWholly=]'' and ''[=UnSouled=]'' stems first from his disgust at his transplant and fear he'll lose control of [[psoiler:Roland's]] arm and later because he doesn't want her tagging along for his dangerous lifestyle when she's found refuge elsewhere.
