* DomesticAbuse: Although it's well known that Luca and Phe fight and then make up, the arrival of the ambassadors causes Luca to [[http://www.meekcomic.com/2009/12/27/2-18/ cross the line]]. Der-Shing outright says that their relationship is unhealthy and dysfunctional on many levels. And yet, they're HappilyMarried with bouts of great make-up sex and plenty of SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments between them.

** Phe overhears Tesa's racist remark and [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome throws it back in her face.]]

Added DiffLines:

* FanDisservice: [[InnocentFanserviceGirl Angora]] is not exactly meant to be played for fanservice, and Luca's [[spoiler: sending an enemy captain to drown and/or freeze to death ''buck naked'' in the sea]] isn't the prettiest sight in the world.

Added DiffLines:

* DieselPunk: Emperor Luca's army and technology are pretty much [[TheThirties 1930s]].

Added DiffLines:

** Done with Tesa earlier as well. [[spoiler: There's no proof that she and Lethy murdered Phe. They're only suspects. Nevertheless, Luca kills her, because he just so happened to have his hands on her at the time, and because she's Carissi.]]


* TheConscience: Luca's conscience appears to him in the form of his own younger self. He's torn between listener to him and listening to The Dagre.

* AttemptedRape: The very first scene features Angora dashing naked through the woods, pursued by three men who haven't "seen one woman...for months," and are "not losing this one." She's saved by her own running skills and the interference of an angry drunk. Worth noting is that Angora appears to have no idea what they wanted to do to her.

** Suda towards Hyla, who's [[spoiler: grieving for their dead mother.]] He gives her comfort and attention when no one else does.



** Hyla in chapter five when Luca fails to show up at the promised time.



* SadisticChoice: Happens twice. First in chapter four, when Angora is forced by Tanome to choose between leaving the travelling group without a map (and dying in the jungle) or dying by spear impalement. [[spoiler: Neither happens. She and Pinter escape from her and her husband Etan.]] The second time happens in chapter five when Luca forces a sea captain to choose between SuicideBySea or InstantDeathBullet, for the crime of allowing a small Carissi boat (crewed by his friends) to sail through his territory. [[spoiler: He chooses the sea, and Suda, who silently witnesses the whole thing in horror, throws up afterwards.]]

* DivineChessboard

to:

* DivineChessboardDivineChessboard: The gods of this universe interact with mortals and influence their decisions. One is starting a war between the humans, and the other is trying to prevent it.
* DisproportionateRetribution: A Parsoi sea captain allows a small smuggling boat with a all-Carissi crew to sail through Luca's territory. Rather than put the captain on trial or investigate the matter further, Luca executes him.

* SceneryPorn

to:

* SceneryPornSceneryPorn: The author is a biologist and she ''really'' knows her stuff. The whole comic is visually stunning.


* ParentalNeglect: By chapter five, Luca has lost all interest in his children, except for training his son Suda to be a relentless leader. [[CallingTheOldManOut Rana confronts him about this.]]
