* OhCrap: Jardin thought humanity was prepared to take part in the war. Then he saw a space battle where the smaller of the two fleets was larger than the ''entire'' human military, and it was explicitly just a small skirmish.

** Beryl looks horrified when [[http://well-of-souls.com/outsider/outsider125.html a LOT]] of Umiak ships start showing up out of nowhere, in a location where the Loroi should have been alerted to their presence.

-->'''Talon''': [''talking about Kikitik-27''] Clicky-click is not a memorable name. They are all named Clicky-Click. The whole Shell language is naught but clicky-clicks.

* TranslatorMicrobes: Averted as the characters speak a CommonTongue and the TranslationConvention is in effect. When a translation system is finally seen in action during an enemy Umiak commander's transmission, it can only manage translations that are basically really long run-on sentences. Sort of like an alien Babelfish.

* TheRedBaron: Kikitik-27 is known to the Loroi as "The Stray." It has the distinction of being one of the few Umiak commanders known to have survived an [[WeHaveReserves attrition]] [[ZergRush assault]] mission, and it has done so at least twice. In both cases Kikitik inflicted heavy losses on the Loroi defenders, and then withdrew its forces from combat (relatively intact) when Loroi reinforcements arrived.

* ShipTease: Beryl's fascination with Jardin can sometimes come off as clingy, and she sometimes invades his personal space. In pages 116 and 117 of Chapter 2, she's put off that Jardin developed rapport and touched hands with Talon. The biggest tease, however, is a picture the author drew for Valentine's Day 2013 in the site's Outsider Insider section that had a naked Beryl kissing a surprised Jardin.

* CrapsaccharineWorld: The Loroi act very civil towards Alex and the races in their alliance, so they seem better than the Umiak. However, at least half of the races in the Alliance are only in it as a subjugated population or out of fear, as the Loroi have committed or attempted xenocide ''multiple times'' for petty, borderline StupidEvil reasons. There's a general, somewhat sinister "be nice to us or we'll kill you" tone to their interactions with others.

* StupidEvil: Some of the actions of both the Loroi and the Umiak come off as this, or at least needlessly antagonistic. Notably, when Kikitik-27 offers a peaceful solution to a confrontation that gives everyone what they want, Stillstorm's reaction is [[{{Jerkass}} to laugh at him and blow up the wreckage that Kikitik wants just to spite him]].
