- Jerkass Woobie: Kleist's parents gave him to the Redeemers when he was very little, and life with them wasn't much easier than in the Sanctuary.
- Nightmare Fuel:
- Cale meeting Riba for the first time. She's trapped in a torture table, and her friend is being gutted and dissected alive by a Redeemer next to her.
- The whole life in the Sanctuary counts as this. Being subjected to Training from Hell, overly cruel punishments for every little mistake they commit, and aware that they can die at any moment due to the hardships faced, and being taught that once they do die, they will be eternally punished in hell, in the afterlife.
- Stoic Woobie: Cale, having learnt to not demonstrate any kind of emotion and blindly obey the Redeemers as long as he is in the Sanctuary.
