* ThePigPen: The Depression isn't far enough in the past to qualify as an example of {{TheDungAges}}, but many of the working class (particularly the carnies and the attendees at various functions) are covered in dirt and grime, due to living in the "dust bowl," in extreme poverty, without indoor plumbing. At least two minor characters also die of "dust pneumonia."

** When he goes full bore evil, Justin's fairly affable ("Blessed are the meek? Hah, how banal."). Unless he's angry, when he barely changes his tone or expression yet is suddenly ''terrifying.''

* OnlyChildSyndrome: A justified case, as outlined in [[SeriesBible the Gospel of Knauf]]. According to this universe's rules, only the eldest male child of an Avataric family can become his generation's Avatar, but giving birth to an Avatar is such a traumatic experience that it renders the mother permanently infertile. Hence, Avatars can only have older female siblings, and they have a disproportionately high chance of being only children.
