* ParentalFavouritism: Nina's mother favoured her older sister Marisa over her. [[spoiler:It turns out that Nina was always the favourite child, and her mother tried to keep her in the dark about the magical world to protect her. In fact, when the condition was imposed upon Gloria that the moment either of her daughters became aware of the existence of the paragons one of them would be forcibly initiated as a paragon, Gloria chose Marisa specifically to keep Nina out of it.

* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: The more Nina learns about the Paragon cabals, the more they sound like warring Mexican drug cartels. A superficially glamourous, heavily secretive world of warring cliques that treats everyone not a part of it with utter contempt, hoards power for itself, and runs through the distribution of a heavily guarded, crystalline substance that requires an unknown (but hinted to be ghastly) process to accumulate. According to the police detective, these cabals are responsible for more than four hundred innocent deaths in the past year ''alone'' (it is all but stated that if you belong to this society, sooner or later you ''will'' become a murderer) and ten years of it has turned Nina's warm, caring mother into a cold, ruthlessly unemotional figure who seems to think that constantly gaslighting her daughter and obviously ruining her life in the process is actually doing her a favor, and that letting her daughter in on the paragons' existence would actually be far worse than setting her up to potentially die without a family, homeless and alone. (And she may even be right!) Basically, there are no good guys in this world, and the longer you are a part of it the worse you become. The contrast between Nina's memories of her mother and how she acts in person are, to say the least, jarring.

* TearJerker: Gloriana's confrontation with Nina in her throne room is one hell of a tearjerker. After the Verdugo Earthquake, Gloriana basically sold her soul to bring Nina back to life and to prevent her young daughters from following her into the hellish life of the paragons. Now, ten years later, one of those daughters has been dragged literally kicking and screaming into that world and must soon fight in a magical war in which she will be badly outmatched and in which, thanks to the other daughter's actions, her Cabal might well lose. Meanwhile, said other daughter- whom she rescued from death itself- is standing before her screaming her head off, laying out in excruciating detail how Gloriana's selfless actions have ruined her life, and is firing off spell after spell in an attempt to kill her own mother because she is utterly terrified of her and thinks of her as a monster.

* [[DaddyHadAGoodReasonForAbandoningYou Mommy Had A Good Reason For Abandoning You:]] Subverted and played with. While Nina's mother did actually have the best possible reason for abandoning her and faking her own death ([[spoiler:she was forced to agree to it as a precondition for having Nina literally resurrected from the dead]]), the total collapse of Nina's family as a consequence, as well as her family's habitual mockery of Nina for her (entirely accurate) insistance on believing that ''something'' happened on the night of the earthquake and that magic was real utterly ruined Nina's life. Alcoholism, drug addiction, and an early grave were the most likely outcomes of the life she condemned Nina to live a fact which does not seem to have registered with her or made her reconsider her [[spoiler:post-resurrection]] conduct toward Nina in the slightest. Even worse, when Nina discovers the existence of the paragons ''completely by accident'', which immediately initiates a chain of events that leads to the [[spoiler:intended-to-be permanent disappearance of Nina's own sister, whom Nina now relied upon to survive thanks to being reduced to such a lonely, isolated wreck]], Nina's mother ''tries to erase Nina's memory of her sister's very existence.'' For all intents and purposes, Nina's mother is the big bad of the series, because she absolutely refuses to acknowledge that her (admittedly selfless) deal has led to catastrophic consequences that can no longer be avoided, and that continuing to gaslight her daughter for the sake of protecting her is utterly destroying her.
