* HeirClubForMen: Only male blood relatives of the Ritter family can become Schattenjäger, and since Wolfgang dies with out issue, Gabriel comes to realize he's the end of the line[[labelnote:*]]In fact, Wolfgang kills himself precisely ''because'' Gabriel completed the ritual and became a Schattenjäger: he was only keeping himself alive because he was the last of the line, and now that Gabriel is able to carry it on, he's too old to keep going]]. ''Blood of the Sacred, Blood of the Damned'' drops a few hints about the tension between his feeling of obligation to produce a male heir and the fact that he's not really interested in having kids at all; ''Temptation'' states it outright.

Added DiffLines:

* LandPoor: Schloss Ritter has fallen into disrepair since the family's fortunes have waned in the past two centuries. The current owner, Wolfgang Ritter, only maintains five rooms, and lets the rest of the castle fall into disrepair because he can't afford to keep it up. He is also mentioned to be severely behind on paying the property tax. [[spoiler: After the first game, Gabriel inherits the castle and uses the money from his book and what he stole from the Voodoo Cartel to pay the back taxes and being repair and restoration work.]]

* MoonLogicPuzzle: The infamous [[http://www.gabrielknight4campaign.com/cat_hair.php "cat hair mustache" puzzle]], which Website/OldManMurray used as an example of how adventure gaming killed itselfe. [[spoiler:You must make a fake mustache to disguise yourself as a man who doesn't have a mustache (after drawing one on his ID) by scaring a cat through a hole you've rigged with tape and then affixing the stolen cat hair to your lip with maple syrup. 'Cause that's what makes the disguise ''pop''.]]

** Actually, [[spoiler:the "get a fake mustache to disguise yourself as a man without a mustache" thing makes sense in a way, since Gabriel and Mosely look nothing alike, but having a big moustache on both the man and the photo can well cause a casual observer to think "yep, same guy". As to how you get it and how you attach it to your lip...]] no excuse.

* NotSoDifferent: Although it isn't commented on (and could possibly be a case of AccidentallyAccurate), Ogoun Badagris (one of the patron loa of the Gedde family) is strongly associated with St. George (the patron saint of the Ritter family) in American Voodoo.
