* BelligerentSexualTension: Subverted in ''Midnight Robber''. Tan-Tan's parents had a love that people described as "so sweet it's hot", but eventually turned into pure discord without the sweet. Tan-Tan's father killed her mother's lover in a duel and fled with his daughter, and then things got worse...
* BizarreSexualDimorphism: ''Literature/MidnightRobber'' has the douen, natives of the PenalColony planet New Half-Way Tree. The males are lizard-like, and can speak fairly well. The women are more bird-like, with feathers and a beak which limits their ability to speak human languages--which is why most humans aren't aware they're intelligent, let alone the same species.



* PostScarcityEconomy: In ''Midnight Robber'', most of the human worlds, including the planet Toussaint where the book starts, have automation which frees people from the need to work. Some, like the Pedicab Guild, insist on doing so anyway, but for the most people, arts and leisure are the main activities. This leaves Tan-Tan and her father Antonio totally unprepared for life on the remote PenalColony world of New Half-Way Tree, where hard work makes the difference between life and death.

Added DiffLines:

* DivineParentage: In ''Sister Mine'', Makeda and her twin sister Abby are both children of a god by a mortal woman, but Makeda, unlike her sister, didn't end up with any divine powers at all.
