YMMV / Sangue Serenissima

Go To

  • Adorkable: Eliza Cortly. Mysterious, ethereal, and a total sweetheart ready to burst into giggles at the slightest provocation.
  • Complete Monster: See here.
  • Genius Bonus: Hardestadt casually name drops historical pioneers of fencing in Venice when engaging Adam. As both he and Adam know who these men are, neither feels the need to elaborate.
  • Heartwarming Moments: Eliza does not like being touched due to some of the dark things she's endured in her past, to the point where she's gone decades without brushing against another human body. When she tells Hardestadt about this as well as some of her past, she asks him to place a hand on her shoulder, leave it there until she tells him to stop, and pull away the second she tells him to. He does everything she asks. In the end, while there's some Ship Tease between them, they share a chaste hug, showing how much Eliza's come to trust him.
  • Moment of Awesome:
    • In the climax, when Eliza is being pursued by the thing in the patchwork cloak, she feigns fear and lures him into a trap where his power supply is cut off and he's rendered trapped under the weight of his eldritch mutations. She then leaves him for Hardestadt and Adam to finish off, thus defeating the monstrous Coyte while maintaining her pacifistic nature.
    • Adam giving Coyte his just desserts by sending him to eternal torment at the hands of the Ending Eye.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Eliphas Coyte crossed into irredeemable long ago by forcing his father into killing himself to seal himself to the ways of the dark arts. Though during the story itself, he crosses it by threathing to murder Eliza's young ward Julio if she doesn't come to him...and pulling an I Lied and killing Julio anyway.
  • One-Scene Wonder:
    • Blackbeard appears briefly in a flashback as an old friend of Hardestadt's from his pirate days. He mostly stands out by dint of being Blackbeard.

    • Nyarlathtoep himself shows up to pay a little visit to his treacherous disciple, in a very memorable moment with all the dramatic flourishing one could expect from him.
