* ShowTheirWork: Aside from the Empath "painkillers," the medical tools used by the healer working on Quain'tana would not be out of place in a modern field-hospita, and neither is the procedre that said healer is using to remove the corruption that has been literally plaguing Quain for days. The bits of flesh being removed as well, are all what one would find during an operation to remove a deeply imbedded fungal growth.

* BadAss: Quain'tana fits this trope, as can a few others.



** Ariel is the butt of many jokes for having been educated in the male's school, but she's still [[BadAss Quaintana]]'s [[AsskickingEqualsAuthority recognized heir]]

* DeliberateValuesDissonance: Sil'lice [[http://www.drowtales.com/mainarchive.php?sid=6094 illustrates]] the values of different species, which explain why people who are BadAss, AxCrazy, or [[KnightTemplar extremists]] are portrayed sympathetically and/or positively. Leads to a lot of debate among the readers.

** The one known instance of an exorcism (Laele'aell Val'Sarghress), while technically a success, also ended horribly for the possession victim, much to the sorrow of her mother. While clinically alive, she was left a mute, empty shell and is used as a killing machine (the fact that she was a {{Badass}} before this was probably helpful for that last detail). It's not known if she's even sentient anymore.

** Zala'ess seems to genuinely love her children, and Sil'lice, who before was shown taking joy in torturing tainted gained major PetTheDog points when she was revealed to have little twins in the form of Kau and Shala, who she named after a ''son'' who died in the Nidraa'chal war. Quain'tana's relationship with Ash'waren is also something of a PetTheDog in regards to showing that the usually gruff and {{badass}} Ill'haress has a soft side.

** OurDemonsAreDifferent: [[PureMagicBeing Demons are beings made out of nether mana]] from other realms. There are believed to be an infinite variety. Most of them are extremely dangerous, but only a small number are actively malevolent. Most demons are noncorporeal and can only interact with the physical realm via a host, but a handful of demons can manifest physically like a summon. They also eat mana, which makes fae races attract rogue demons like bug lights, and races without an aura (read: nonmagical) are safe from them unless they manifest or possess a fae. This also makes them able to shut down [[{{Magitek}} elven technology]] by eating their power source, unless hardened against demonic predation. Finally, demons can also "attach" themselves to a host through their aura; powerful demons will overcome their new host immediately, resulting in possession, while weak demons attach to their host [[SymbioticPossession in a symbiosis called a "tainting"]]. Tainting, among other benefits, mostly serves as an "antibody" against other demons that might possess the host, and thus becomes almost mandatory for summoners.

* ProxyWar: The Sullisin'rune Clan and the ruling Sharen Imperial Family were doing this using the Sarghress and the Vloz'ress respectively, especially since after being beaten by the Sharen centuries ago the Sullisin'rune are officially at peace with them and support the Sarghress,who started as a mercenary band and eventually became a great clan, to get around this. The Sharen in turn sponsored the Vloz'ress, formerly a RagtagBunchOfMisfits group of demon worshipers, to themselves becoming a great clan.

* IdiotBall: One is apparently handed to dwarves, who have terribly bad designs for man-portable cannon. They can't even handwave the over-the-shoulder cannon with AWizardDidIt, as the dwarves are explicitly lacking in magic. They also can't even manage to pull off their given role of tunnel skirmishers - their attack causes zero casualties and only minor damage.

** OurDwarvesAreAllTheSame: The dwarves are a minor underground dwelling race. Their greatest cities were supplanted by the drow, who enslaved them and took their caverns for themselves. The dwarves don't stand much more of a chance against the Fae than the other races, but are capable of giving them a bloody nose by ambushing them with cannons.
