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.
Genius Bonus: Rossiu's mother is named Hobelis; though familiar with philosophy (or certain tropes) will probably realize that this is a clean reference to Thomas Hobbes, trope namer of Hobbes Was Right. It's made particularily clear as flashbacks confirmed that Hobelis, while much gentler and kindly-spoken than the trope namer, had the same cynical perspective as Hobbes himself, as confirmed by the author himself in review responses.
