* TheEvilsOfFreeWill: The Fae are considered an example of why free will is so important, being a ServantRace bound to rules and laws that no longer make sense, and completely aware of it.



* LackOfEmpathy: The Fae, at least the Unseighle. Quentyn gently picking up the body of a bird the Fae Prince had slain tips the King off that he's not one.



* ServantRace: The Fae.

to:

* ServantRace: The Fae.Fae were created as one, but their creators are long gone.


Added DiffLines:

** Raccoonans are this to a degree as well, with many believing them to be Fae.

[=TotQ=] borders between a humoristic adventure comic and a more dramatic story about Quentyn's maturing and the problems he faces due to still being a young boy, with stronger emphasis on the serious side as it has progressed. The comic is also notable for its writer's tendency to convey his religious and political views through it, though these traits have decreased over time and transferred into other mediums. At its best, the comic works its themes into an imaginative fantasy allegory, much like Creator/CSLewis' ''{{Narnia}}'' novels, and it constructs a deep world that helps alleviate these problems.

* BarefootCartoonAnimals: Some Racconans and other non-human races don't use shoes at all, but many do much of the time. It varies from individual to individual. Quentyn uses shoes most of the time, especially in more recent parts of the comic.
