* FantasticRacism: The Bad Bloods were a street gang who took in Blade as a child and ended up bitten and turned by him. Although they seem to be ordinary vampires (they are not daywalkers) and hate Blade, they are shunned by the other vampires and called "mongrels". The only way for them to join a vampire house is to do something very useful, like bring in Blade. Additionally, members of the House of Leichen are VegetarianVampires, who view other vampires as unenlightened savages and refuse to deal with them. They also rarely allow vampires of other Houses into their safe houses and headquarters, claiming that they smell bad from drinking human blood. Chase even warns Krista to avoid buildings with Leichen sygils.

Added DiffLines:

* YouHaveFailedMe: Played with. When van Sciver meets Tucket Moffet, an architect remodeling the Conclave building, the latter regrettably tells him about delays with the work. Marcus seems amiable, then violently [[NeckSnap snaps Moffet's assistant's neck]] and warns Moffet to not fail him again. During their next meeting, after the work is finished, van Sciver apologizes for his actions, but Moffet is simply glad it wasn't his neck.

** Subverted with Tucker Moffet, an architect who is hired by van Sciver to remodel the Conclave building. When Marcus meets with him to give him his reward, there is a tiny pause where the audience thinks he will kill the architect. In fact, Marcus gives him a familiar girl for his pleasure.

** After being turned, Krista is warned by Chase not to go into any of the vampire safehouses marked with the glyph of the House of Leichen, implying a hostile relationship. It's likely that Chase simply didn't want Krista (a freshly-turned vampire who still has reservations about drinking human blood) to join them.

It's likely that Chase simply didn't want Krista (a freshly-turned vampire who still has reservations about drinking human blood) to join them. It's also possible that they would turn her away, even with daylight approaching, resulting in Krista's death.

* ScaryBlackMan: Blade is a (rare) heroic example. Steppin' Razor, as well as the rest of the Bad Bloods, are the more proper examples.

Added DiffLines:

* IHateYouVampireDad: A variation. Chase was turned by her husband Frederick, who then went VegetarianVampire and joined the House of Leichen. Chase refused to give up drinking human blood, and they divorced. She still resents him for abandoning her (although not for turning her).
