Added DiffLines:

* AmicableExes: You and your ex-human lover, [[NewOldFlame though you can get back together if you want]].
* TheAtoner: The PC has some guilt over bringing their human lover beneath the waves, since doing so trapped them there forever and brought about the ruin of their relationship.
* DealWithTheDevil: The whales are willing to use their magical abilities, but you always have to give them something in turn. They're more AmbiguouslyEvil than truely evil, though. [[spoiler:[[SubvertedTrope Except no, they really are evil.]]]]
* GildedCage: The mermaid city ended up being this for your human ex. Sure, they'll live forever, and sure, it's underwater and that's very neat, and sure, there's lots of neat activities and parties...but they can ''never'' return to the human world, and they can't leave without being escorted by mermaids.
* HiveMind: The squids belong to one.
* IJustWantToBeFree: Some mermaids are of the opinion they should break free from service to the whales, potentially including you.
* ImmortalityHurts: The only way to kill a mermaid is to starve them to death, which takes centuries. Anything else--being stabbed, shocked, ''eaten alive''--won't do the trick. Since mermaids are embroiled in an eternal war against squids on the whales' behalf, it kind of sucks since there's no hope of escape.
* ItCanThink: The injured squid you discover is capable of talking independent from the squid hive mind.
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: [[spoiler:The entire race of mermaids is under this.]]
* ManipulativeBastard: [[spoiler:The whales. They approached humans and made them tempting bargains, but left out the tiny little detail that accepting it would cost them there memories. When the humans accepted and were transformed into mermaids, their lost memories were replaced with memories of eternally promising to serve the whales, effectively becoming a race of slaves.]]
* OurMermaidsAreDifferent: They're immortal, have no actual genders (just picking one to identify by) and look nothing like the beautiful sirens of lore, having blue skin, green or purple hair, black eyes, and sharp teeth.
* SapientCetaceans: The whales are somehow able to communicate with humans, and have magical abilities that can do almost anything.
* {{Transgender}}: Finn actually considers himself a transgender woman named Faye, and came below the service because she hoped the whales would change her physiology. [[spoiler:They can, but it will cost her her memories of her life as a human.]]
* WhoWantsToLiveForever: A very prominent theme of the game is whether the costs of the mermaids' eternity--having to live in service to the whales, having to follow a very strict set of rules, slowly losing your memories due to natural decay--are worth the benefits.
