* GrayEyes - Marc, of the cold and strong-willed variety. [[spoiler: Unifex often likes to have gray eyes in the bodies he creates for himself as well.]]

Added DiffLines:

** Unification itself is being forcibly imposed on all of metapsychic humanity. Opting out is not an option, and nonpsychic humans are to be phased out.

* TangledFamilyTree - Mostly because of the incest. Don is Denis' father, and thus the ancestor of the Dynasty, but he's also the father of Annarita Latimer, making Teresa his granddaughter, and she marries Paul. [[Paul is also the grandfather both ways of Hagen and Cloud.]] There's a family tree printed in each book. It gets complicated.

* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Subverted: you'd think "Jack the Bodiless" was a name for a terrifying villain. Actually, Jon's a freakish mutant [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin without a body]], but he's also a [[NeutralGood saint]] and utterly devoted to the welfare of humanity, even if he's not specifically part of it.

Added DiffLines:

* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler: Fury and Hydra are dead, but so is Denis, and the best and brightest of the Remillard family with him. Mental Man has been destroyed, and Marc rendered infertile and sent into Exile. The Rebellion is broken, and humanity will survive and achieve its destiny, but that means that all of metapsychic humanity will be forced into coadunation whether they like it or not, except for Rogi, while nonpsychic humanity will be imprisoned or killed if they won't get with the program, or else left to slowly die out.]]


* AssimilationPlot: Metapsychic humanity is to be evolved to "coadunation," in essence an altruistic racial unity, though not a HiveMind. Ordinary humans without operant abilities are allowed to remain separate so long as they don't become recidivist criminals, though the definition of "crime" is continually adjusted downward; those who won't get with the program are exiled, imprisoned, lobotomized or euthanized (and exile later stops being an option), and nonpsychic humanity is being slowly bred out. Operants are brought into coadunation; after the end of the Metapsychic Rebellion, there's no option B except for [[spoiler: Rogatien Remillard, who is allowed to remain the last Metapsychic Rebel in exchange for services rendered]].

Added DiffLines:

* BigBadEnsemble: There are two separate threats. One is Fury, who is [[spoiler: Denis' split personality]] and is largely out to wreck things, particularly the Remillard dynasty. The other is [[spoiler: Marc Remillard]], leader of the Metapsychic Rebellion and creator of Mental Man, who is out to prevent the forcible coadunation of humanity [[WellIntentionedExtremist by any means necessary]].
