* AngstWhatAngst: WordOfGod says that Elyon is indeed suffering from PTSD or some related condition as a result of her brotherís betrayal.
* EvilIsSexy: Jade, who has never been much into admiring boys, thinks that Phobos would look handsome in the eyes of many girls in her school.
* MoralEventHorizon: If Kur having shapeshifters burned at the stake ''isn't'' a clear crossing of it, doing the same to (by then 5 years old) Miranda's (human) parents and ''[[ForcedToWatch forcing her to watch]]'' does the trick.
* RootingForTheEmpire: Many fans of the story have become more sympathetic towards the Knights of Vengeance than the Guardians or rebels. This must have been due to Jade's presence and the heroes' [[NiceJobBreakingItHero actions]].
* StrawmanHasAPoint: Kur's rabid mistrust and hate of the Guards is understandable, when one considers that they were enemies for years, and they only switched sides during the FinalBattle with Phobos.
