Added DiffLines:

* VillainHasAPoint: He turned to treason and backstabbing to make the poklons pay for the discrimination against the atani. The FantasticRacism of the poklons (the Moles especially) is indeed horrifying.

Added DiffLines:

* NiceToTheWaiter: He is very friendly towards Nightmare’s atani cook. [[spoiler:Not to mention that he buys crowds of slaves and sets them free]].

Added DiffLines:

* NominalImportance: He is the only atani besides Veri-Meri and Dr. Crack whose name we know. [[spoiler:Subverted, as he does nothing plot-relevant and gets killed off-screen when the vkushetses ambush the house.]]

Added DiffLines:

* InterClassRomance: Brook is a ferryman’s son and an outlaw in Radiculitis’s realm, and Squirrel is a rich poklon’s daughter.

Added DiffLines:

* TermsOfEndangerment: "My dear mole boys, you'll have to die".

Added DiffLines:

* BoomerangBigot: He gleefully sells other atani into slavery.


* CapturedOnPurpose: Brook allows himself to be captured by Left Mole's soldiers to find out more about the mysterious guests of the planet, as he sees that Alice, Pashka and Iria look like the group of be-pe that the rememberers picked up in the forest.



* ObfuscatingStupidity: Brook disguises himself as a be-pe (a person whose memory is fully wiped) to avoid detection.

detection.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Foil}}: Apart from Squirrel (see above), he is also a foil to Brook. Both of them come from outsider groups who can't fit with the current regime (the atani and the rememberers). Both work as spies and have a whole network of agents and assets in the city and the woods, and each of them has his hiding technique developed to perfection (Veri-Meri prefers HidingInPlainSight and Brook is a StealthExpert). Both are ready to do NecessaryEvil for the sake of the bigger picture. Both of them despise poklons and want to marry Squirrel. But while Brook acts for the sake of Krina's lost knowledge and the poor deluded people, really believes he can make it all better, and falls genuinely in love with Squirrel, Veri-Meri's values are centered around himself and his primary motive in pursuing the girl is her title and inheritance.

Added DiffLines:

* SuddenSequelDeathSyndrome: [[spoiler:Mercury drowns soon after being found by the heroes.]]

Added DiffLines:

* {{Foil}}:
** To her mother (it even gets lampshaded by Veri-Meri). Centipede, too, was a kind highborn girl snatched, after careful planning, by an AbhorrentAdmirer who tried to force her into marriage. However, Squirrel seems to have inherited her father’s spirit [[spoiler:and ultimately manages to run away]], while Centipede marries Old Mole and slowly gives up on her life.
** To Veri-Meri. Both are born basically without any rights, with everyone looking down on them, and a lifetime of abuse lying ahead, both struggle with the fact and desperately want to escape. But Squirrel finds friends, love and a new life thanks to her good heart and courage, while Veri-Meri makes a life for himself by backstabbing everyone who can be backstabbed and selling out everything that can be sold.

Added DiffLines:

* IShallTauntYou: He tells the Moles they shouldn’t fight Worm Thefattestone: after all, he’s related to Radiculitis, and they are minor nobles. It works like a charm.


* RebelLeader: Deconstructed. They are at war the neighboring nobles, the atani, the rememberers, and with basically everyone, and they always win because they are amazing fighters and their unicorns are fast as lightning and very clever. However, when one of their escapades goes too far (they kill Worm Thefattestone during a truce for a rather petty reason), not a single voice sounds in their defense and they are sentenced to death by Radiculitis and [[UriahGambit put on the frontline]] [[spoiler:in the campaign against the Shelter]].
