* CripplingOverspecialization: Not immediately obvious, but sometimes all the magic power in the world won't help if you don't level up things like ''decoration''.

** This is however a partial subversion: [[spoiler:Elodie's father doesn't actually activate the crystal and become a Lumen until Togami expresses interest in a Lumen battle, taking on the mantle only to save his daughter.]]

Posted above.
** Elodie can send an assassin to take out [[spoiler:Arisse]], should she either screw things up with the nobles or [[spoiler:unwittingly help cause the death of Adair]] and receive reports that [[spoiler:Arisse]] is attempting to start a civil war.

** Despite supposedly being available as an advisor, Elodie's father, the King Dowager, never provides help to his daughter with any of the problems that get dropped on her. Civil war? Silence. Inventions that would greatly advance Nova's power? Silence. Execute your family and be an all-around brat? Pout. [[spoiler:Until the end, if Elodie never gets her Lumen gem, where he willingly fights for his daughter with HIS lumen gem.]] In fact, he can make things ''worse'' - he gives Elodie the idea to ramp up punishments if she's scared about plots against her (which she can then gleefully enforce), and can dissuade Elodie from taking Julianna in, based on highly circumstantial evidence. By "dissuade", we mean "possibly throw her into the dungeons for life".

** If you choose to court the affection of the Duke of Sedna, then he appears to be charming and courteous in every way. If, however, you're too blunt in telling him that you have no interest in marrying, then he'll raise tariffs on the border, making things quite difficult for your people. Even if the two of you are on good terms, getting engaged to Adair will result in him doing the same thing, despite him and Adair not seeming to have anything to do with each other at first glance.

* DeclarationOfProtection: In his engagement path, Talarist will give one to Elodie under certain circumstances...[[spoiler:or rather, he will give one ''about'' Elodie ''to'' the Novan court, to shame them for showing supposedly showing less loyalty to her than him, a foreigner. Nobody appreciates his input.]]

* MyGirlIsNotASlut: Banion can play the DoubleStandard in the trope against Elodie at the Ball, in some circumstances. There's no dishonor on him for implying that he's been having sex with an underage girl, but the barb is pointedly aimed to upset Elodie by essentially calling her a slut in public and get her to react. If Elodie can handle it calmly, she can deflect the issue without losing face. Alternatively, if Elodie is engaged to Talarist and invites him to the ball, ''he'' will deny the accusations if he doesn't think Elodie will ([[StopHelpingMe whether she wants him to or not]]).

Their epilogue specifically states they “never gave up their affection for each other”, I see no reason to interpret it differently. Where does your indication that their marriages aren’t marriages of convenience?
* RomancingTheWidow: Attempted by a number of women with Joslyn, the King Dowager and Duke of Caloris. He's generally uninterested, but may still marry again to produce a heir for the duchy (since Elodie, as queen, can't also succeed him as the Duchess of Caloris). * RomanticTwoGirlFriendship: [[spoiler:[[SchoolgirlLesbians Elodie and Briony's relationship]] is temporary, and both marry later in life, with no indication that they're fake marriages. They do, however, remain close friends.]]

** The background figure King Latimer, whose "gathering light" led to the growth of the Novan empire, shares his name with a [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hugh_Latimer Protestant martyr]] who was burned for heresy and whose FamousLastWords also involved light.

** To the point of TheDevThinksOfEverything if you [[spoiler:suss out the fact that Lucille is a lumen]] and send a spy to gather info on who sent the assassins. Your spy will be irritated that you had found this out earlier, and Elodie will claim it slipped her mind.
