- Alternative Character Interpretation: Are Hunter and his crew Anti-Heroes or Villain Protagonists? Is Almont a Big Good or a Corrupt Politician? Is Hacklett prior to crossing the Moral Event Horizon Too Dumb to Live or merely Born in the Wrong Century? Are the character's final fates in the epilogue merely examples of Dropped a Bridge on Him or long overdue Karmic Deaths?
- Magnificent Bastard: Hacklett really, really wants to be this, but does not quite make it. Cazalla, with his status as The Dreaded, and his wide successes in fighting pirates, and his outwitting of Hunter at several instances, could be considered this.
- Moral Event Horizon:
- Hacklett and Scott collectively crosses this when Hacklett allows Scott to rape Emily.
- Cazalla has crossed it a long long time ago, and probably does not even care anymore.
YMMV / Pirate Latitudes
