* VillainSong: “Lord Nafaryus” and “Three Days”.

to:

* VillainSong: “Lord Nafaryus” and “Three Days”.Days" for Nafaryus.
** To some extent, Prince Daryus has "A Tempting Offer", as it sets up not only his motivation, but also how far he's willing to go to get what he wants.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Leitmotif}}: Several of the characters (like Faythe and Gabriel) have their own individual themes that reoccur in various guises throughout the album. Heaven's Cove also has its own theme in Act II. Some characters are represented through certain styles as well, like Nafaryus being represented with more classic genres like tango and dixieland.

Added DiffLines:

* IronicEcho: A musical version. The bagpipes section at the end of "The X Aspect". The melody reprises "Brother, Can You Hear Me?" and plays right after [[spoiler:Arhys decided to betray Gabriel and bring him to Prince Daryus.]]

Added DiffLines:

* NoNameGiven: Despite being a major character in the album, Daryus is never once named. Made even more ironic when in "A Tempting Offer" he asks for recognition from both Arhys and Xander.


* BigBad: Lord Nafaryus.

to:

* BigBad: Lord Nafaryus. Counts as a NonActionBigBad as well, as the most he does personally is give the three days ultimatum and state his dominance over everyone with his royal guards. [[WellDoneSonGuy His son Daryus,]] [[TheDragon on the other hand,]] [[SadisticChoice is a much more]] [[WouldHurtAChild active threat]].

Added DiffLines:

* EvilLaugh: [[https://youtu.be/sOi_F5Fl5c8?t=112 "You only have three days!"]]
