* SevenDeadlySins: most of the Houses embody at least one of these, and sometimes more. Zethu and Astyanath are Pride, Riethii is blatantly Lust, Sturrach obviously has strong ties to Wrath, Lictat is implied to be Envy, Carthenay is Avarice, Haimon is Sloth, and Oblurott is predominantly Gluttony. (Glabretch is the odd one out, but then that happens a lot with them.)

Added DiffLines:

* WrittenByTheWinners: According to the official history, demons came into being when the First Fallen were corrupted. They absolutely were not the result of bestiality by the First Fallen, Lucifer never existed, and more importantly, demons certainly did ''not'' [[TurnedAgainstTheirMasters rebel against the Fallen]] - such rumors are heresy. Note that every demon knows the Luciferine Heresy and nearly all believe it - but admitting that would undermine the Law of the Covenant and put Infernal society (and the positions of the nobility) in peril.

Added DiffLines:

* DeadlyDecadentCourt: The lower Circles of Hell are pleasurable to the point of sybaritic, but it's still Hell. Instead of the constant open warfare practiced in Upper Hell, you get backstabbing, seduction, possession and [[IGaveMyWord Covenant]] manipulation. It should be noted that these circles are the ''most'' dangerous part of Hell, not the least.

* MassiveRaceSelection: Nine breeds of demons, plus humans, half-demons, [[FallenAngel Fallen Angels]], the damned, and possibly oddballs like the Abhorei.

* VestigialEmpire:
** House Sturrach conquered half of Hell under the leadership of the original Sturrach, but they haven't been quite the same since the Battle of the Ash Ghosts. They're still the mightiest army in Hell by a long shot, but the lands that Sturrach conquered in the War have mostly been lost and they're now kept on a leash by Carthenay, who make sure that they don't get enough iliaster to really fuel their war machine.
** House Zethu was the next House looking to take pre-eminence in Hell, but the heart of their power was based around cities and industry. With the Breaking of Oaths and the revolt of the Free Cities, their powerbase has just broken free from them, and they're currently in total disarray.

* SolidGoldPoop: A Carthenay mutation is called "Shit Gold." Technically, the coins in question can be produced from any orifice, though.
