* BackFromTheDead: Who or ''whatever'' burst out of that coffin in the first few pages, her build looks suspiciously like Vane's. [[spoiler: Over the course of ''many'' flashbacks, were shown that Vane had some form of debilitating sickness, that gradually got worse until it killed her - only for Hunter to perform some ritual as she died, causing her to resurrect in fiery splendour,.]]



* CameBackWrong: [[spoiler: Hunter did... ''something'' to Vane that caused her to rise from the dead as a fiery, burning being.]]



* GrayAndGrayMorality: Bordering strongly on EvilVersusEvil. Vane is a borderline VillainProtagonist with ruthless tendencies and comitting many morally questionable actions (ranging from gradually turning her faithful steed into a mechanical abomination to [[spoiler:shooting a boy and his dog]]), while Hunter is a reckless thief with little concern for collateral damage or human lives. At the same time, though, both are given sympathetic attributes, and their conflict is definitely not at all simple.

As they battle across the frontier, they take advantage of every object, person, or animal which might help them to achieve their goals. And neither of them seems to care much about the collateral damage they cause during their confrontations. This is ''not'' a good thing for the other inhabitants of TheWildWest.

* AntiHero: Vane is one [[UnscrupulousHero ruthless]] heroine, if not an outright VillainProtagonist, given how so far she's caused more death and devastation than good in her quest to kill Hunter.
* AntiVillain: Hunter, who is quite an [[AffablyEvil affable]] and [[NobleDemon nice]] person... if you ignore his disregard for human life and property, as well as pettiness.

* CrypticBackgroundReference: The first chapter, "Lookback", is built of these. It juxtaposes Vane and Hunter's first meeting with their present day meeting, complete with near-identical poses and almost devoid of dialogue or explanation. Vane's name doesn't even come up until halfway through the next chapter.
