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.
Complete Monster: Dereath implicitly caused the downfall of the preceding Lord Fardew and discredited and displaced anyone else who could have taken the job. He also unrepentantly engineered two deaths and framed Volle and Streak for the murders. When confronted over the deaths he brags about having also engineered the death of Volle's first love, Xiller, in the first book and confesses that he was planning on killing his accomplice as well. What's more, the only reason he targeted Volle in the first place was because Volle rejected his sexual advances.
