These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Jerkass Woobie: Alleria. She has suffered much, including the loss of her brother and the devastation of her homeland, but she brings a great deal of that suffering on herself after she Took a Level in Jerkass and began on a self-destructive crusade of revenge against the orcs.
Tear Jerker: Khadgar calling Alleria out on the person she's become. The worst part is when he tells her that she's throwing her relationship with Turalyon away, and when he points out that he, being a prematurely old man, will never be accepted romantically by a woman his (actual) age.
