Shiloh provides examples of:

  • A Father to His Men: According to his former partner Barrett, Deputy Knox is one of the few high ranking officials that genuinely cares about their subordinates and will always have their back. This is later proven true when he and Callahan find the gravely injured Barrett and assures him that he'll make a cover story to hide the truth of what happened in order to protect Callahan from any colony officials who might make her "dissappear" for knowing the truth about demons.

  • The Chase: The series starts with Sawyer and Ollie running after Charlotte Perry. Following that, the entire first season turns into a longer and more harrowing chase when the police officers go after them.

  • Deal with the Devil: Ollie made one with the praying mantis demon when he was a child, and the whole gang has one of a different kind with The Highwayman.
