*** To be fair, it's already made pretty clear in ''Blood Omen'' that [[spoiler:the Unspoken IS Hash'ak'gik. All we discover in Defiance is that he's also the Hylden Lord.]]

* SenselessSacrifice: Moebius claims to have made this thanks to Raziel sparing Kain:
-->'''Moeius:''' I can accept that Kain has murdered me, Raziel. As the Time Guardian, I foresaw that incident long before it occurred. And I take some small comfort in the fact that Kain remains the sole survivor of his vile breed. But you have single-handedly made my sacrifice meaningless.
** Of course, Raziel shuts him down immediately, having had enough of his manipulations.

** In ''Blood Omen'', Kain's quest really kicks off when he visits the Pillars of Nosgoth and talks to Ariel. In the end, he returns there to fight [[spoiler:Mortanius/The Unspoken]] and purify the Pillars once and for all.

An action video-game series by Creator/SiliconKnights and Creator/CrystalDynamics, ''The Legacy of Kain'' is set in the dark, gothic world of Nosgoth and its [[OurVampiresAreDifferent unique vampires]]. The series follows badass {{Anti Hero}}es, [[NameOfCain Kain]] and Raziel. Kain is a [[MagnificentBastard Magnificent]] SociopathicHero interested in conquering Nosgoth with a vampire army. Raziel is Kain's right-hand vampire who he has killed and turned into a wraith, and sets about trying to kill Kain to avenge himself. It turns out Raziel has the power to ScrewDestiny, and from there we get into time travel. Thus, from ''Soul Reaver'' on, all the main characters, including Kain, take turns playing GambitRoulette with [[CosmicPlaything Raziel as the ball]], hoping to [[UnwittingPawn trick him]] into changing history to make things better for them. Along the way, there's a ProphecyTwist or two, loads of {{Magnificent Bastard}}s, [[FloweryElizabethanEnglish faux-Shakespearan dialogue]], and many chances for [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential video game cruelty]] as you decide how to dispatch {{Mook}}s in the most fun and gruesome ways you can think of.

* BewareTheSuperman: The presence of supernatural powers is very much a bad thing in this series. Most humans with magic abuse their power at the expense of the commoners, most vampires see humans as food, but the worst are the [[OurDemonsAreDifferent Hylden]], [[spoiler: who are responsible for the curse that caused vampires to have to feed on human the first place and want to KillAllHumans for no reason other because they just don't like them.]]

* GenreBlind: Raziel invokes GenreSavvy in ''Defiance,'' as he's realized by now the only thing he can trust of literally every other named character is their intention to manipulate him. He even calls some of them out on it. Unfortunately, he's unable to out-scheme them, and does not account for the possibility that his active defiance may be part of someone's plan (it is.) To make matters worse, the ''one time'' he is approached by someone with better intentions than anyone else, Raziel is driven to insane paranoia by a partial demonic possession and lashes out.
* GenreSavvy: Upon entering a room with a pair of demonic-looking statues standing motionless to either side of the entrance, Kain observes: "These statues were singularly inanimate. I knew better than to assume they would always remain so."



* MistakenForGranite: {{Lampshaded}} by a GenreSavvy Kain, who notes, "These statues were singularly inanimate. I knew better than to assume that they would remain as such."

The fate of the franchise at large is unclear. ''Defiance'' ended on a cliffhanger, albeit with most major plotlines resolved. A sixth title, a direct sequel to ''Defiance'', was cancelled mid-development and the parent companies that own the series have shown little interest in reviving it again. Kain and Raziel have also appeared as bonus characters in ''[[Franchise/TombRaider Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light]]''. In 2013, ''VideoGame/{{Nosgoth}}'' was announced as a team-based free-to-play multiplayer game based in the years after Kain tossed Raziel into the Abyss in ''Soul Reaver'' before Raziel emerged from the Underworld, and involves humanity's final attempt to wipe out the vampires and escape their subjugation. However, in 2016 the game was canned, once again leaving the future of the series ambiguous.

In 2015, the odds of there being [[http://www.gamespot.com/articles/new-legacy-of-kain-on-ps4-xbox-one-and-pc-has-5050/1100-6432040/ a sequel was "confirmed as "50/50.""]]
