* HeroicSacrifice: Haskel, an Ithorian and Trasks replacement in this alternate universe, jumps in the way of a volley of laser bolts, saving Mab. It definitely doubles as his CrowningMomentOfAwesome as well, as he, after getting shot multiple times, tears a lightsaber through his arm, and seals the door behind them, so the Sith can't get past, and Mab can't try to save him.

* WallsOfText: Plenty of words, not enough paragraphs.

* CombatPragmatist : Most of the main characters seem to fight in this way: Mab routinely chops people's arms off or kills them when they're already down, Carth shoves a swoop bike into someone, pining them and burning them alive, and also shoots pieces of the environment whenever he can to cause them to collapse on people. Partially justified: because of medical technology, they have to kill their enemies quickly and in any way possible so they can't be rejuvenated: brutal dirty styles thus become prominent.



* MagicalRealism: I can't really explain it, but it seems more fantastical and odd then a normal science fiction story; it has touches of quirky strangeness: floating traveling elevators, rollercoaster train tracks, and giant business streets shaped like canyons with aliens fishing for customers.

* ThePlan: [[{{TheChessmaster}} Revan]] appears to very skilled at these. After all, this trope and XanatosSpeedChess is most likely the only way he can hold his own against the story's villain, a OmnicidalManiac that can read minds on a planetary scale. What's unique is that both his and the opposition's plans are discussed in great detail, continuously, between the characters, and reasons for every action examined and thought over- which makes the whole thing feel very realistic and natural: solutions evolve organically; they are not just pulled out of someone's brilliant ass.
** He is also, are demonstrated by Chapter Four, a expert liar. Who was this guy's master again?
