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.
Designated Hero: In story example. Exoda is disgusted with the behavior of a "hero" who comes to Shina Dark to fight Exoda but disrespects the woman sent there.
Squick: Exoda is visibly upset that someone sent him a pre-adolescent girl as a sacrifice. He essentially adopts her.
The Woobie: Oh pretty much everyone. Christina is a contender for first place as she spent four years being poisoned while secretly using her knowledge of herbs to keep the poison from outright killing her.
