* FantasticRacism: Humans hate Keidrans (it's mutual) and can barely recognize the difference between Keidrans and Basitins.

Also, there is a timber forest and a rain forest rather close to each other (and on the same latitude line, no less). Possibly justified for the Keidrans in that they're nomadic -- so the people living in a city are the minority -- and that they've been on the losing end of a war of genocide[=/=]slavery with humanity for the past few decades. (The 6,000 population has since been {{retcon}}ned to be 36,000.)

* AltarDiplomacy: Flora (the long-lost Tiger princess) was supposed to marry Sythe (a Wolf duke) to cement their two tribes alliance against the humans, whom Trace had whipped up into a xenocidal frenzy during his EvilSorceror days. She was so opposed to the idea that the first thing she said to Sythe was "Your ponytail looks stupid" in an effort to drive him away. She eventually ran off on the way to their wedding, running splat into Trace, ''who was out to kill them in an effort to stop the alliance!'' Luckily, Neutral whomped Trace with the {{amnesia}} stick, driving his evil side underground before he could get them.
