- Angst? What Angst?: Caius d'al Cazarosta. His mother was executed, he never knew his biological father and almost everyone he's ever known save a tiny few have treated him like something unpleasant they've stopped on. You won't hear him complain about it however.
- Moral Event Horizon: The MC's callous sacrifice of his men in pursuit of the ransom money near the end of the game in chapter 10a is one viewed as such both in-game and out.
- Stoic Woobie: Cazarosta's mother was executed for adultery when he was born, adultery which he was the product of, and as a Deathborn, is constantly looked down on by the rest of civilian and military society regardless of his considerable talent as a soldier. In the final battle, he loses an eye and is horribly scarred, but he never once complains about his circumstances and for the most part, refuses to show any emotion over them.
- Guide Dang It!:It is hard to get a perfect ending in the first installment without being lucky or having a guide at your side. The first thing you could be messed up is in the initial stats build, where there is no hint for the player that you will need to have a strong stats and a weak stats. Having good relationship with both Elson and Cazarosta is hard, and you could possibly make Cazarosta your potential enemy. In the middle scene, the quests in Fort Kharan can be challenging without a strong trait, making the extra plot useless and frustrating. In the end, the situation of the final battle suggests that left the battlefield is the most logical option. Unfortunately, doing so will be equal to desertion.
