* InstantSedation: [[spoiler: Tinsel is apprehended with a tranquilizer dart. We get one panel of her being hit, the next panel has the shooter saying she's down, and then next time we see her she's already unconscious.]]

When the Indigo sisters are “distracting” the shock troopers Mardi Gras-style.Gras-style in Volume 2.
** Also, the Prelude arc where Grunn gives up on "pants."

Added DiffLines:

* ElectiveMonarchy: In Andurana the position of Viscount is popularly elected rather than hereditary or appointed like in real life. The history also notes a period in the city-state's history where it was ruled by a king whose title was passed among the "High Houses" prior to the democratic revolution.


Added DiffLines:

* FantasyGunControl: Gunpowder was never invented, rather the shock troopers use spring-powered projectile weapons. And said "Springers" are very tightly controlled.


Added DiffLines:

* SchizoTech: The presence of powers and flora or fauna with strange abilities has resulted in an odd mix of technologies. Flexible touch-screens exist alongside beast-pulled carts and telepads.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Teleportation}}: The city has a system of telepads that connect the different districts and the central tower. They actually use a floating squid species with the natural ability to teleport though, [[spoiler: and were invented by Scinter, which got him arrested so the city could seize the technology. So naturally he built his own network for the resistance.]]

Added DiffLines:

* TrophyChild: [[spoiler: Tinsel]] conceived Namah in order to blackmail the Viscount with an illegitimate child, whom she left on his doorstep.


* SceneryCensor: When the Indigo sisters are “distracting” the shock troopers Mardi Gras-style.



* SecretRelationship: Lilith's father, Viscount Calah, had one of these. It resulted in Namah, so he can be forgiven.

Added DiffLines:

** Sabbaton is the melting pot of the city, where the cultures of all seven districts mesh and collide. It is also the hub of commercialism and consumerism in the city. This district could possibly be compared to modern-day North America.

Added DiffLines:

* HumanoidAbomination: Nabonidus is fairly humanoid for a Nightmare...

Added DiffLines:

* ParanoiaGambit: Kalei vows revenge on Stacephanie after the latter tampered with a boy's love letter to Lilith.
-->'''Kalei:''' You were right Jen... Not only is psychological warfare insidious, it's easy!


** The setting is Lilith and Namah's Prelude. Tinsel is walking through a very large room, with several bickering politicians a little to the side of her path. She detours ''right into the center of the crowd'', only to lament that she's "busy", and walks off. And considering her usual wardrobe choices, [[FetishFuel the latter word in this phrase is decidedly appropriate.]]

* FiveManBand:
** TheHero: Mace
** TheLancer: Whip
** TheSmartGuy: Lilith
** TheBigGuy: Bast
** TheChick: Namah
** The roles of said FiveManBand are arguable at this stage in the story. Not perfectly defined as of yet, but one thing is certain - Namah is ''definitely'' not TheChick. Lilith is more suited for the duties associated with TheChick, Namah seems to be alternating between the roles of other characters depending on the plot points.
