Added DiffLines:

* SkewedPriorities: The filipods are rather poetry obsessed, and tend to try and break out in overly long poetry if not forced to work on more important things, like dealing with invasions. When their Tesskan masters are mostly killed, and their human masters forced to shift away all forces and oversight, they choose to take advantage of this precious strategic time of autonomy... by hosting a slam poetry contest.

* TerminallyDependentSociety: La Familia had the good fortune to recover and reverse engineer a FasterThanLight drive lost by the Continuum and used this to crown themselves the rulers of humanity. They maintained a very careful monopoly to ensure that all of humanity's colonies would have to obey them or be cut off from humanity. But some of the outer colonies are able to rebel thanks to the help of three renegade Familia members. This dependence on the Drive is also the reason for El Imperio's war with the Continuum, since as far as they can tell, the Continuum wants the human race to give up the stolen technology or be wiped out, and the former would mean the end of their interstellar civilization.

* LaResistance: At the time of the story, the outer colonies of El Imperio are engaged in a full fledged revolution. At first, the military and SecretPolice attempt to put it down, but when the war against the Continuum and the Vinn grows very desperate, the Emperor is forced to prioritize and shift his resources towards bigger threats.

Added DiffLines:

* InsufficientlyAdvancedAlien: While they are certainly not this now, the Continuum's technological development is unusual in that, as far as they know, the Drive was the very first creation their kind invented. The Rogue Maker's apprentice finds this odd, since the Drive is a very sophisticated device.

* DisproportionateRetribution: How La Familia deals with anyone who tries to steal the secret of the Ring Drive, because that would put their supreme power in danger.

* DisproportionateRetribution: How La Familia deals with anyone who tries to steal the secret of the Ring Drive, because that would put their supreme power in danger. In a guest comic, a stranded captain is forced to activate the Ring Drive's alarms, not even to steal the secret, but due to that being the only means he had to signal the Empire. Indifferent to his plight, they arrest him for prison and possible execution.

* SecretPolice: They monitor all your communications for anything La Familia would find of interest. There is also a special branch of them called the Jinyiwei, created to enforce imperial law against dissidents among the royal family itself.

* BlackBox: The first emperor was able to reverse engineer the ring engine, and duplicate it, but he had no idea how it worked. [[AlcubierreDrive Apparently, it "pinches" space.]] It's likened to trying to flick a penny over a heavily clothed table, which could take hours. But if the cloth is pinched in the center, it only takes a fraction of the time.

* BlackBox: The first emperor was able to reverse engineer the ring engine, and duplicate it, but he had no idea how it worked. His best guess was that [[AlcubierreDrive Apparently, it somehow "pinches" space.]] space]]. It's likened to trying to flick a penny over a heavily clothed table, which could take hours. But if the cloth is pinched in the center, it only takes a fraction of the time. According to the renegade Maker, it was invented by the founder of the Continuum and pinches space by manipulating dark matter to generate a [[UsefulNotes/BlackHoles singularity]].

** The crew of the ''Machito'' take their own unique spin on a similar situation, when they decide to "test" what happens when [[spoiler:a smaller ship engages their ring drive ''inside a larger ship's drive ring''. During a Maker invasion of a human world. The resulting "significant drive event" is so catastrophic is destroys about a third of the Maker fleet while the ''Machito'' speeds instantly away]].
