*** Of particular note is a quest that requires activating a series of ritual circles by clicking on about a dozen runes in a specific order. Aside from one circle that is (thankfully) on a wall, pretty much any angle that allows you to see the whole circle at once will also cause some of the hitboxes for runes on the far side to overlap, making accurately clicking on the right rune much trickier than is truly reasonable.

** Perhaps played with, since Solomon Island apparently went to hell around Halloween (jack-o'-lanterns and other decorations litter the houses and other buildings). The shadows under her eyes are a bit dark to be biological, and the blood around her mouth is a staple of Halloween costumes. Given that no one else on the island (still living) is covered in anywhere near as much blood as she is, it's possible that she had just prepared an amusingly prophetic costume for the holiday.

** Issue #11 brings the Tokyo arc to an end with [[spoiler: a massive assault on Orochi Tower and a second confrontation with Lilith, during which her true nature and plans are revealed - she's a First Age human turned HumanoidAbomination through a marriage to a FallenAngel, intent on HijackingCthulhu with the Gaia Engines and the Morninglight. Then, just as it looks like Lilith might be ready to make an alliance with you and maybe force the Filth out of Kaidan, the Nephilim swoop in and carry her away. Good news, you end up with new powers as a result of your choices in the original story mode. Bad news, the Black Signal is free from Tokyo, the only person who might have a plan to stop the Filth is gone, and Samuel Chandra AKA The Angel Samael is pissed at you for getting his wife kidnapped - and has you framed as one of the Tokyo Bombers for it.]] The wham is doubled for Dragon players: [[spoiler: the Child has matured into a teenager; Bong Cha is dismissed as Voice of the Dragon and memory-wiped; finally, the new Voice of the Dragon is Daimon Kyota, signifying a ''massive'' change in approach for the Dragon. Finally, this major victory for the Dragon has sent the leadership of both the Templars and the Illuminati into an uproar as everyone involved is trying to blame each other for allowing this to happen. The Templar Old Guard unless Pit and Pendulum to [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown punish]] Sanacc for not anticipating the Dragon's movements while also warning the player that their rapid rise in the ranks has the entire Old Guard on edge. Meanwhile, the Talking Heads are ''very'' disappointed in Geary and the Illuminati player, and given that their failure in Egypt is still being held against them, its clear that they're now on ''dangerously'' thin ice.]]

** Lilith, who is TheDreaded to the point her name triggers an evolutionary panic attack within humans.
** In Issue 14, Sonnac mentions that King Solomon is given credit for far more things than one man could accomplish.

* OurGeniesAreDifferent: Fire Jinns; quite apart from not living in lamps or granting wishes, they're a ProudWarriorRace of elemental spirits who utterly despise humanity- to the point that it got them banished from the world. They're not entirely malevolent as, up until fairly recently, love for their former home kept them from trying to take revenge, but as of the beginning of the game, this truce is over.

** Toyed with so, so much. One mission intro has another Bee receiving orders, standing there in awkward silence just like the PC. For Illuminati players, at the end of the first major zone KG will sarcastically say "high five" and your character will raise their hand, but she just stares and says, "Seriously?"

*** The [[ManBehindTheMan power-brokering]], [[ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney Ultra-capitalist]] '''[[OneWorldOrder Illuminati]]'''. The Illuminati way is to seize control, no-matter who you have to take out to get it. As for their approach to civilians, at least the Templars have a certain degree of compassion for the inhabitants of Kingsmouth: the Illuminati are almost entirely without sympathy or compassion. On the upside, violence is a last resort; it's preferable to use blackmail, bribery, and backroom politics to achieve the Illuminati's goals.
