** Interestingly, it's implied in ''War in the Heavens: Hegemony'' that the worlds in question did "change hands" a few times, but Humanity remained in its designated areas out of fear for provoking a war with the Vau. The Vau, for their part, see no reason to raise a fuss if it doesn't bother the Hegemony's citizens and patron races.

* NiceToTheWaiter: Most of the Noble Houses hold some form of this as an ideal, but what that means varies between Houses and individuals within the House.

** Apart from the minor houses (of whom some have a distinct cultural feel, while others are too insignificant) there are also Vuldroks (the Space Vikings), Kurgans (the Space Caliphate, another kind of Space Arabs mixed with Mongol elements), and Zuranists (a kind of Space Gypsies and SpaceJews mix). Alien races are usually [[OurElvesAreBetter Space Elves]] and/or {{Noble Savage}}s.

* {{Pacifist}}: The vast majority of Amaltheans follow the old rule of pacifism, despite one Dark Ages Archbishop who abolished it as a rule. What form this pacifism takes depends on the Amalthean; some are [[ActualPacifist Actual Pacifists]] who would never raise a weapon in their own defense, while others are [[MartialPacifist as willing to defend the weak as to heal them]].

* ScienceFantasy: In general, the vast majority of the game is theoretically sci-fi, but it's portrayed with fantasy trappings. Psis aren't just trained minds, they're sorcerers; the family's ancestral sword is a wireblade; cyborgs have replaced part of their body with occult magic, and the sacred jumpgates represent the light of the Pancreator. Then you get into theurgy, Antinomy and other occult factors that are straight-up magic...but even then, there's some hints that they're just another expression of humanity's potential. In short, Fading Suns is as fantasy as you want it to be.

* ScrewTheRulesIHaveConnections:
** The most blatant example is the concept of "extreme penance." Clergy, nobles, and guildsmen are exempt from the Church's rules forbidding technology; it's just the serfs who need to live in the Middle Ages, because the elite take on the damnation caused by technology so they don't have to.
** The Church tries to ban psychic powers from everyone except Penitents, but the nobility's response to that rule has been a giant middle finger. Each House has a sect of Dervishes, or psychic warriors, in their services; the Hazat Dervishes are the most famous and numerous, and the ones who give the name to the entire concept. The Church wisely doesn't press the issue.

* OrderReborn: The Favyana are a tradition descended from the Phavian Institute of the Second Republic and dedicated to much the same ideals, but the original Institute had disintegrated centuries before the modern group was established. Most people in the know think that the link between the modern group and the Institute is tenuous at best, and the Favyana are just claiming a model and a legacy.
