** When confronted with a need to quickly knock someone unconscious, Agreus head-butts him, certainly a fitting way for a member of a half-goat species to conduct himself.

** The Republic of the Burgue is clearly inspired heavily by London in the Victorian period, from clothing to technology. Being a republic, it's governed by a parliament very similar to unified version of the UK's Parliament. The Burguish flag looks similar to the Union Jack, albeit in darker colors.

Philo even reads a "[[ScienceFiction scientific romance]]" about people going to the moon, something that grew prominent in the late 1800s with books like ''Literature/FromTheEarthToTheMoon''.

* CrystalDragonJesus: The Martyr, portrayed as a hanged man in religious ornaments, basically fulfills the role of Jesus in Christianity to this world. There's even a curse, "God's noose", matching our world's "God's wounds", or "zounds". The physical prayer motion is a circular hand movement evocative of a looped noose, instead of crossing themselves in the shape of a crucifix. The monks in the orphanage even wear a rope tied into noose around their necks instead of a crucifix.
* {{Cult}}: The Faun sect, who whip themselves in the streets, sacrifice human bigots and try to kill the Chancellor while worshiping a mysterious figure they call "the Hidden One" (deity or something else is unclear).

** Agreus is a rich Fae, who moves into the rich neighborhood otherwise populated entirely by humans. Despite his wealth, they still look down on him and feel he doesn't deserve to live on their pedestal. Adding there's some subtext-Agreus is played by a black actor while (most) of the human swells are played by white actors, helping to paint a reminder for the viewer. His human neighbors are aghast to learn there's no law against it.

** Burgish people follow a man called "the Martyr" who they frequently invoke (who's depicted as hanged) and seems pretty similar to Jesus. Faerie meanwhile have a "Saint Titania", who shares the name of a mythical fairy queen (plus the idea of saints may mean it's similar to Christianity as well). The place Ritter Longerbane is laid in state seems very much like a church, and there is organ music in the background. There also seems to be the concept of Heaven, Hell, angels and demons, as Agreus and Imogen discuss the symbolism in a painting he's recently purchased.
** Some of the Fauns also are part of a religious sect which engages in self-flagellation as the Medieval era saw. They have a holy book and provide charity for poorer members of their people in a manner akin to many churches too. In their case, it takes a darker turn as the sect turns out to be bent upon a violent anti-human revolt. Fauns also have their Haruspices, female clerics named for Roman ones who prophesied the future by examining the entrails of sacrificed animals, especially livers (which comes up in the series).
