'''''[[http://www.impurebloodwebcomic.com/ Impure Blood]]''''' is a fantasy webcomic featuring Roan, an enslaved gladiator known as The Abomination, who is not entirely human and is given a chance to escape by joining a quest. Caspian, who masterminds Roan's escape, is in conflict with most of the powers that be in their world, including his own father. Meanwhile, Caspian's associates Dara and Elnor have agendas of their own.

%%* TheCaper
%%* {{Chiaroscuro}}: During an underwater escape.

* CoolAirship: Another sign of the vaguely dieselpunk aesthetic.
* CoveredWithScars: Roan
%%* CuttingTheKnot
%%* CrystalBall

%%* {{Cyborg}}
* TheDandy: Caspian, who is almost never seen without his top hat, vest, coat and cane, even in a desert.

* DudeWheresMyRespect: Roan, all the time.
* DynamicEntry: Dara boards a sinking boat by jumping out of a zeppelin, sliding down the mast until she can catch a loose halyard and swinging down to the deck.
* EmbarrassingNickname: Can't get much more embarrassing than "The Abomination", especially when you've done nothing to deserve it.
%%* EmbarrassingRescue

** GlowingEyes: hidden behind OpaqueLenses.
** KaleidoscopeEyes: They default to blue, however...
*** RedEyesTakeWarning: They switch to red when she's angry.

* FantasticRacism: Against anyone with Ancient blood, hence the title.

%% {{Flashback}}
%%** FlashbackCut
%%* FlawExploitation
%%* AFriendInNeed
* FruitCart: Played straight as Roan's last obstacle during his escape.

%%* HarbingerOfImpendingDoom

* HighClassGlass: Caspian
* IGaveMyWord: Roan swears on the blood of the Ancients, and Dara's not letting him forget it any time soon.

%%* InfractionDistraction

%%* IronicEcho
%%* IsThatWhatTheyreCallingItNow
* ItIsDehumanizing: Caspian initially makes a point of referring to [[HalfHumanHybrid Roan]] this way. He gets better as Roan earns his respect.
* ItsAllAboutMe: Caspian, at least until he meets antagonists that are even more self-centered. The rest of the Watchers are even worse.
* IWarnedYou: Caspian tried to tell the Watchers, but they just wouldn't listen.
* JustInTime: Roan makes it through the city gates just as the sun comes up.

* KnifeNut: Elnor carries enough throwing knives to take out a whole birthday party's worth of city guardsman.

* LastOfHisKind: Roan believes that he's the last until he meets others. Dara [[spoiler:(who, like Roan, is a half-blood)]] is searching for the last pure Ancient.

* LegCling: Mac to Roan -- then, it's in the middle of the fight, and they are after her, not him -- she's trying to hide.
* LeonineContract: [[http://www.impurebloodwebcomic.com/Pages/Chapter001/ib005.html Here]].
* LetsSplitUpGang: Elnor holds off the guard and Dara takes care of the gatekeepers while Roan makes for the gate.
* LittleStowaway: Mac stows aboard Mithlin's zeppelin on the way back to Turien, though she's not little so much as immature.
* LoopholeAbuse: Elnor arranges with Caspian's father to get herself and Dara wounded as a way out of her contract.
* TheLostWoods: Where Roan was born
* MadeASlave: Roan's backstory. He wasn't born in captivity, and he did not volunteer for his lot in life.

* TheMedic: Elnor, believe it or not.
* MessyHair: Elnor again, and it always covers one eye.
* MuggingTheMonster: Attacking Caspian is unwise.
%%* MundaneUtility
* MysteriousPast: Roan and Dara. Neither of them like to talk about it.
* TheNoseKnows: Roan smells Dara's approach.
* NotEvilJustMisunderstood: Roan is hardly the remorseless killer "The Abomination" implies.
* NotSoOmniscientCouncilOfBickering: The Watchers can't agree on any course of action, which led Caspian to strike out on his own.
* OddShapedPanel: used for action scenes.
%%* OedipusComplex

* OnlyTheKnowledgableMayPass: Roan is quite agitated to discover Dara knows Ancient secrets like the blood oath.
* OpaqueLenses: Dara uses them to hide her GlowingEyesOfDoom.
%%* PaintingTheMedium
* PaperThinDisguise: As if Roan's incredible bulk didn't make him stand out enough already, he has to spend some time walking around in [[http://www.impurebloodwebcomic.com/Pages/Chapter005/ib030.html this]].
** Lampshaded later when another part-ancient tells him that most people are willing to ignore such differences if you give them an excuse.
* PhlebotinumBreakdown: All Ancient-based technology is gradually failing.
* PinkElephants: Escaping through the city, they pass a drunk who may have seen something that wasn't there.

* PostVictoryCollapse: Roan collapses after he makes it out the gate.
* PowerGlows: Especially when it's Dara's eyes.
* {{Precursors}}: The Ancients.
%%* PrimalFear
* ProfessionalKiller: Elnor is an assassin, though she's currently contracted as Dara's bodyguard. She finds this tedious, as killing someone is much easier than keeping them alive, and Dara is an ExtraordinarilyEmpoweredGirl raised by warrior monks that doesn't even need guarding.
%%* ThePromise: See IGaveMyWord above.
* PsychicPowers: Dara has them, although the full extent of them isn't yet known.
