* MartyStu: Ashinji -- he's gorgeous, even by elf standards, a great warrior, beloved by all (with two exceptions: his JerkAss brother and an AxCrazy fellow slave/gladiator), and, eventually a powerful mage. Balancing flaws? What flaws?
* MoralEventHorizon: Take your pick with Sadaiyo: [[spoiler:trying to rape Jelena just to spite Ashinji]] or [[spoiler:setting up Ashinji to be ambushed by the Soladarans.]]
