Goodbye, Cruel World!: Daylen leaves a suicide note revealing his identity as Dayless before he leaps off the edge of the world at the start of the book. He intends to return home and destroy the note after he regains his youth, but is too late to stop a local farmer from sending it to the papers, forcing him to concoct a story about being Dayless the Conqueror's son for when word gets out of Dayless being alive, leaving everyone to think that Dayless's Bungled Suicide actually succeeded.

Rape as Drama
 Shadow of the Conqueror / int_12dd1d4c
comment
Rape as Drama: There's enough rape to give Game of Thrones a run for its money, at least relative to length. Let's see, there's: Four-hundred and twenty-seven incidents by Dayless himself. That's victims, not counts: the general pattern was once every "fall" (day) for about a month, bring in a new girl or two, and repeat. Several different rapists he lynches during his stint as a vigilante. He finds some more later in the book, and Lyrah is more than happy to join in. The sex slavers of the Maraven, who took the opportunity to "break in" all fifty of the girls before the planned sale. Tuerasian law has a rather appropriate and agreeable punishment for male rapists: Public castration. How female rapists are punished has yet to be elaborated on.

Bloodless Carnage
 Shadow of the Conqueror / int_135b9977
comment
Bloodless Carnage: Downplayed given the nature of the medium making it such that the author normally wouldn't need to clarify the fact that wounds bleed, but there is one notable exception. Daylen at one point catches a man in the act of raping a little girl (revealed immediately after to be the man's own daughter), and so magically enhances his strength in order to perform a barehanded castration on the prick. Given the nature of the scene and the fact that erection in humans is achieved by inflating the penis with blood, one would expect a grisly and detailed description of High-Pressure Blood. In fact, no blood is mentioned at all.

Phlebotinum

comment
Phlebotinum: Two, which together power all the setting's Magitek: Sunstone, a brightly-glowing rock. Darkstone, a pitch-black stone that, when in complete darkness, is immovably anchored in space (even if it's hovering mid air), such that no force or weight can move it (a large tectonic deposit of this mineral being what keeps the setting's continent, Tellos, from falling). If a non-uniform light of sufficient strength is shone on it, however, it will move away from the light, it's momentum depending on the size of the sample of darkstone and the brightness of the light. If however you get the light source to physically touch the sample of darkstone, then it follows all laws of gravity and Newtonian Motion for as long as the contact is maintained.

This causes a panic attack, immobilizing her for a couple of minutes as every one of her interactions with him is given a Cerebus Callback. With some help from Ahrek and Cueseg, she recovers quickly enough to join Ahrek in going for some Revenge.

Tempting Fate: In his journal, Daylen notes that he'd do everything differently if he had another chance, and "If the Light truly wanted to punish me, it would curse me to live." He later decides that his long quest is his own fault for wanting to make amends and be a hero again, because the Light seemed to accept his offer.

Master Swordsman: Daylen was always a passionate duelist, and attained the highest possible rank—Grand High Master of the Sword. His abilities atrophied a bit in old age with the weakening of his body, but his newfound youth brings them back to their peak. What startles him is that Ahrek also attained the same rank, with the golden mark to prove it.

Her reaction makes him instantly regret this, and he apologizes by the next page.

Wrong Context Magic: Daylen's abilities with both sunforging and Lightbinding are well beyond anyone else's, allowing him to do things like sunforge darkstone or stack four bonds of light at once. His sunforging comes from him being just that good at it, but his Lightbinding powers seem to have to do with the way he obtained them, which might not be the same process as the Vigil of the Archknights.

Alternative Calendar: Because days and nights last for several decades at the least, everyone measures time by "falls," the time it takes for a distant object called the Plummet to reach the bottom of the endless sky and be sent back to the top. These falls are subdivided into times based on the Plummet's position, such as "high," and "low." Word of God is that the amount of time a fall lasts is, coincidentally, 24 real-world hours.

I Owe You My Life: The girls that Daylen rescues from slavery aboard the Maraven are all intensely grateful to him, however he tries to hide it, with Sharra the most expressive about it. Sain is initially a Defiant Captive, but his attitude towards Daylen improves by orders of magnitude after Daylen uses his sunforging abilities to undo the sunucles that Blackheart used to hold Sain and his mother captive. During the climax, Daylen goes out of his way to save Lyrah from the ambush that the Dawnists prepare with their Depleted Phlebotinum Shells. While it certainly doesn't make her forgive him, it's a major factor in reducing the apocalyptic levels of well-deserved hate that she feels for him, to the point where she returns the favor and saves him when he falls off of the Bloodrunner.

Framing the Guilty Party: Dayless is such a known guilty party that most of the crimes committed by other people during his reign are shifted unto him, including things that were actually a matter of dispute between knife and sword making guilds.

Crapsack World
 Shadow of the Conqueror / int_21d70919

Crapsack World: Where to begin? The world is periodically wracked with apocalpytic, extinction-level Nights that see the Shade and mass famines wipe out most of the world's population; every man, woman, and child needs to vigorously train with weapons in preparation for when humanity is inevitably on its last legs again; Hamahra is under the toe of a brutal industrial elite with slums everywhere, the poor barely making enough money to sustain themselves as they're endlessly worked in the factories; the preceding governmental systems were an evil aristocracy and a communist empire; warfare has grown so deadly and widespread that tens of millions were slaughtered over the course of the Dawn Empire; Sky Pirates and Human Traffickers make themselves rich off the suffering of people they rob, pillage, enslave, or blackmail; the only concerted effort to improve the world and end the Shade forever resulted in the creation of the aforementioned empire and countless deaths; the Archknights are locked in a Forever War with the Shade and can barely find time to help the people who desperately need them, and when they actually do, there's so much rape and murder in the major cities that they can never hope to help all of the people who are being attacked and brutalized at that very minute. Tellos is an immutable Crapsack World that offers no escape from endless brutality and conflict, and the closest thing to The Chosen One is a reformed Evil Overlord who spends his time viciously slaughtering the lesser monsters of the world.

How Do I Shot Web?: Daylen, with his newfound Lightbinding magic: He's able to rapidly figure out the basics within two chapters of even getting the ability, but it's a slow trickle from there on out, due to him not being able to get a mentor until late in the book. Even then, there's a lot of information about Lightbinding magic that won't be revealed until future installments.

Daylen also figured out how to create a Fantastic Nuke by sunforging darkstone, something that should be impossible.

Agony of the Feet: Daylen ends up accidentally exploding his feet early on when an experiment with altering his mass goes wrong. Daylen's snarking during his interrogation pisses Lyrah off enough that she crushes a couple of toes on one of his feet. Daylen responds with indulgent approval, regenerating the damage, thinking that it was Worth It, and joking that all he's suffering is "a little pain in the ass." This is, of course, a good example of what Daylen is like in the "juvenile playfulness" phase of his wild mood swings.

Thankfully, Ahrek is at hand to both heal the man before he dies and to give Daylen a well-deserved tongue-lashing. After this, Daylen admits how reckless he was and is a lot more careful about using his strength against people who don't have his kind of powers.

Double Standard: Rape, Female on Female: Averted.

Bad Boss: Daylen got into the habit of disposing of any underling who failed or annoyed him when he was Emperor, and he still has traits of this. After killing Blackheart and pressing Sain into service, Daylen punishes any infraction with backhands, punches, and broken bones (taking advantage of Ahrek being nearby for the latter), while threatening to kill him if he leads them into an ambush. He seems to be moving away from this, though, as he repays Sain with interest after the mission by giving him Blackheart's ship and considerable fortune.

Historical Hero Upgrade: Zigzagged. The Dawnists, being analogues to Neo-Nazis minus the racism, give one to Dayless the Conqueror. Unlike Hitler, Daylen actually had done several quite heroic deeds before he came to power, which one of their leaders points out. The rest are seemingly content to cherry-pick and exaggerate the good aspects of Daylen's reign. Daylen did in fact make enough significant improvements in the state of affairs while he was in power (many of which are even still in place by the time of the book) that had these been the only notable aspects of his reign he'd probably be remembered as the hero and reformer the Dawnists see him as, but the simple fact of the matter is that his sins as head of state were just so bad as to completely eclipse what good he did.

The One Thing I Don't Hate About You: Lyrah hates the air that Dayless the Conqueror breathes and the ground he walks upon, but him saving Highdawn from total destruction still impresses her.

Alien Sky: or horizon, rather. When Daylen sits on the edge and looks out, it mentions how, due to the vertical Wrap Around effect of the setting, he can see copies of the same distant clouds stacked on top of eachother. Played straight be the fact that the same Wrap Around effect meaning that looking up gives you a view of the underside of the very Floating Continent you're standing on.

Killed to Uphold the Masquerade: Defied. After finding out that Daylen knows how anyone can become a Lightbinder without a Heroic Vow, Lyrah becomes determined to force him to join the Archknights or else execute him, so no one will learn the Archknights' secret. After Ahrek tears into her over this, she admits that killing or drafting him just for his knowledge isn't just, and settles for following him to make sure he doesn't let anything slip, instead.

Ancestral Weapon: Sunucles, including weapons, are magically linked to the person who's blood was used to forge them—but there's a small chance that the link can pass to their eldest child when they die. Daylen uses this as an excuse for why he's linked to Imperious. The existence of his bastard children, all of whom are older than he physically appears to be, is one of the clues that tip Ahrek off that Daylen isn't who he appears to be.

Stress Vomit: Daylen nearly gives in to his sexual hungers when Sharra comes on to him, but then realizes that he's essentially taking advantage of a sexually abused girl who thinks she has no other option ... just like before. He becomes so disgusted with himself that it makes him throw up everything he'd just eaten.

Broken Ace: Daylen, due to having both the experience of age and the vigor of youth, excels at a number of things: swordsmanship, mathematics, engineering, sunforging, Lightbinding, flying, and military tactics. He's also a former Evil Overlord whose empire collapsed when the entire world declared war against it, and who is currently ravaged by the soul-crushing guilt at the epicenter of the story's Dysfunction Junction.

Cavalry Betrayal: Dayless had an alliance with the nation of Lourane when he was waging his wars, and the two were on course to split Tellos between them. However, Dayless wanted to conquer all the world, and so eventually betrayed Lourane in this manner. This backfired on him, as it led to Lourane forming an alliance with their longtime enemies in order to defeat Dayless and destroy the Dawn Empire.

If You Kill Him, You Will Be Just Like Him: In the end, the reason why Ahrek not only spares Daylen's life, but also forgives him. Just before Ahrek delivers the killing blow, Daylen contemplates how similar their stories are, and how ultimately it was Daylen's hatred of the aristocracy that fueled the fury behind his atrocities as Dayless. Daylen channeled that hatred towards evil deeds, and Ahrek towards helping people, but the same hatred was there in both. To rid himself of that hatred, lest he be destroyed by it as Daylen was, Ahrek embraces his family's killer as a changed man and a friend.

Luminescent Blush: Played for Drama. Lyrah notices Daylen staring at her face when he realizes that she's a Broken Bird and questions him about it. Desperately fishing for a lie, Daylen tries to cover what he was really thinking about by saying that he was staring because she's beautiful, remembering belatedly that this is one of her trauma and berserk buttons. Cue Lyrah blushing with mingled embarrassment and rage, and Daylen mentally cursing himself with gusto. Sain has a much more humorous outbreak of blushing when Daylen guesses that Sharra seduced him, with jealousy turning him even more red when he finds out that she tried it on Daylen first.

Yin-Yang Bomb: Jumping off the edge and passing the point that would normally loop you back to the top of the world while touching either sunstone or darkstone with bare skin instantly kills you. When Daylen passes said point while touching both, however, he instead becomes young again and gains new magical powers. Daylen also figured out how to create a Fantastic Nuke by sunforging darkstone, something that should be impossible. His ability at combining darkness and light is rather fitting for a former Evil Overlord on a Redemption Quest, especially given the setting's policy of Dark Is Evil and Light Is Good.

Cueseg is initially puzzled by Lyrah's embarrassment, as he assumes a woman her age must have had plenty of sex in her youth. After Daylen meets her, he estimates that he raped her thirty times.

Enemy Mine: The presence of the Shade forces a temporary truce between Lyrah and Daylen, even though she wants nothing more than to kill him at that point. Any teeth-clenching is purely on her part, however, as he never thinks of her as an enemy and is eager to help.

It's All My Fault: Daylen, regarding his past crimes and the Dawn Empire in general, in contrast to how he used to be. Lyrah, when she realizes that Hamenday Island is about to crash headlong into Highdawn and kill hundreds of thousands or millions of innocent people, all because she abandoned the others for the chance to kill Daylen. Daylen immediately tells her she's not to blame and would've likely died if things had been otherwise, but she isn't convinced.

Required Secondary Powers: Exploited. Lightbinding is loaded to the brim with these. Daylen notes many times how his powers seem to have built-in safeties that allow him to use them properly, such as his strength also increasing when he boosts his mass to allow him to carry it, and his mind being temporarily able to process the incredible amounts of information that come from increased perception.

Turn Out Like His Father: When they hear his cover story, Ahrek and Lyrah become intensely interested to find out how much Daylen resembles Dayless—so that they can stop him if he goes the same way. Blackheart, who takes Dayless's traits and turns them to piracy instead of politics. After finding out who he was, Daylen becomes intensely worried that the rest of his children are also like him.

I Have Your Wife: This was a favorite tactic of Dayless the Conqueror, who routinely threatened the family and loved ones of his enemies to keep them in line, and was more than willing to follow through if they rebelled against him. Blackheart is a master blackmailer as well, creating sunucles that he can use to kill the people they're linked to at any time. He holds Sain captive this way by threatening his mother.

Master of One Magic: Lightbinders can increase their ability in one power by specializing in it. Lyrah refuses to tell Daylen how this is achieved, wanting to give him as many incentives to join the Archknights as possible, but he later figures it out on his own when he channels light to his intelligence. While the details are saved as a Sequel Hook, it seems to involve using certain bonds only for the specialized attributes, as Lyrah always reserves two of her bonds for strength and refers to the third as her "free bond."

Too Kinky to Torture: One of the women kidnapped and raped by Dayless later defends him, calling him "gentle in his own way," expressing gratitude for the Child by Rape she had as a result, and saying that she doesn't wish him dead even though she knows he did plenty of other things to deserve it. Given that Daylen insists that he never treated his victims gently and actually subjected them to extreme psychological and sexual torture, one has to wonder what kind of sex this woman would consider to be rough. She seems to be the anomaly, of course, as the rest of the women he ravaged are perfectly willing to call him a cruel, perverse, sadistic monster.

Him proving his penitence, stopping the Dawnists from killing millions of people, refusing to kill her even in self-defense, and going out of his way to save her even after she nearly killed him is just enough to get her to stop trying to kill him, but she still has plenty of hate left.

Unstoppable Rage: Daylen, when he finds out about a certain ship smuggling sex slaves. It doesn't end well for the captain. After Ahrek helps Daylen escape arrest, Lyrah's sheer outrage is a thing to behold, her entire body twitching and her eyes shaking with fury. Daylen tries his hardest to convince Ahrek and Lyrah to forget about trying to kill him and focus on stopping the Dawnists from destroying the city, but he might as well be trying to reason with the wave of an oncoming tsunami for all the results he gets. Lyrah, when she fights the Shade on Hamenday Island. The death of a number of Archknights there also makes it into a Roaring Rampage of Revenge.

comment
During the climax, Daylen goes out of his way to save Lyrah from the ambush that the Dawnists prepare with their Depleted Phlebotinum Shells. While it certainly doesn't make her forgive him, it's a major factor in reducing the apocalyptic levels of well-deserved hate that she feels for him, to the point where she returns the favor and saves him when he falls off of the Bloodrunner.

comment
The Comically Serious: Daylen, Ahrek, Lyrah, and Cueseg all consider themselves to have the best sense of humor, but they play this role to each other, as their senses of humor are so incompatible. Whenever one is joking, the others suddenly have No Sense of Humor. In the few occasions when they aren't giving each other the Lame Pun Reaction or saying Dude, Not Funny!, it becomes Snark-to-Snark Combat, instead.

I Don't Like the Sound of That Place: Tellos has a region called the Shadowlands, so named simply due to being shrouded in Tellos's actual shadow due to the universe's Wrap Around effect. It's not stated to actually harbor anything dangerous, though.

Paralyzing Fear of Sexuality: Lyrah. Even mentioning sex or nudity causes her anxiety, and actually dealing with it can send her into a panic attack. This becomes a problem when she's sent on a mission with Cueseg, a Tuerasian Walking Shirtless Scene with No Nudity Taboo.

Emotions Versus Stoicism: Shadow of the Conqueror is far on the emotional side of the spectrum. Almost everyone is incredibly Hot-Blooded, and by contrast, many of Dayless's most evil actions were committed when he sealed away his humanity and barely felt anything at all.

Angst Coma: After meeting Lyrah at the Fallton and agreeing to let her join the group, Daylen immediately goes to his room, sinking in and out of consciousness for the next several hours. When he finally wakes up and gets to his feet (with extreme difficulty), he speculates that the Light is providing Divine Intervention to make sure he's strong enough to face more emotional torture. This is an excellent example of how Daylen acts in his darker moods.

He's initially very uncomfortable around her, getting angry and shouting at her over minor things. After many apologies (from him) and her pushing his Kindness Button, he acts “like the perfect gentleman,” opens doors for her, goes into his playful moods, and thinks about her in distinctly affectionate terms.

Defiled Forever: The Tuerasians brand the foreheads of those guilty of fornication or adultery so everyone will know their social shame. Hamahra fulfills the trope in a different way by viewing rape victims as damaged goods, a cultural element which the Tuerasians condemn as backwards and barbaric. Sharra in particular worries that her family will throw her out after her brief time as a Sex Slave, which prompts a particularly visceral response from Daylen.

Right for the Wrong Reasons: When Daylen rescues dozens of girls who'd been kidnapped to be sold into sexual slavery, Sain initially thinks that Daylen is one of the slavers, and calls him "rapist scum." This hits a little too close to home for Daylen, who backhands him. Cueseg is initially puzzled by Lyrah's embarrassment, as he assumes a woman her age must have had plenty of sex in her youth. After Daylen meets her, he estimates that he raped her thirty times.

Lightbinding magic is neutrally-aligned, and obtained by a mysterious ritual called "The Vigil," which Daylen may or may not have accidentally reverse-engineered. It's first variant, Lifebinding, grants you the ability to temporarily enhance physical attributes, such as vision, strength, mass, stamina, etc. The second type, Worldbinding, gives external powers like gravity manipulation or lightning blasts.

This knowledge is incredibly painful for Daylen, as Offing the Offspring was one crime he never committed as Dayless, and the loss of his beloved first two children was the catalyst that turned him into Dayless in the first place.

Microts: Given the Endless Daytime nature of the setting, denizens instead measure time in "Falls," which is the ammount of time it takes a distant object called The Plummet to fall to the bottom of the world and loop back to the top. Subverted by Word of God, which states that a Fall lasts 24 real-world hours.

Fountain of Youth: Jumping over the edge of Tellos and passing the bottom edge of the universe normally loops you back to the top like a game of asteroids, but if you're physically touching either a piece of darkstone or sunstone when you reach that point, you instead just die. Daylen, in an attempt to commit suicide, does this while holding one of each, which turned out to have quite a different effect, namely granting him a form of Lightbinding magic, as well as reversing his physical age to about 17. This is the only time anyone has ever been de-aged in the process of obtaining Light-Binding magic, and the only explanation for this offered so far comes from Daylen himself, who basically just shrugs and says "I dunno, Divine Intervention?"

comment
Questionable Consent: Dayless invoked this trope to justify (to himself) raping hundreds of girls: he never explicitly told his attendants to coerce them, never asked if they'd consented, and figured all that crying might just have been nervousness. (According to one of his victims, he was also a Sadist who enjoyed it when she cried, and Daylen admits to himself that he "took such pleasure" in abusing her.) Every time Daylen remembers this in the present, he either vomits or breaks down crying, calling himself the most despicable monster who ever lived.

During his trial at the end, he even pleads guilty to all the crimes he never committed.

Not So Above It All: After enduring his gibes, Lyrah gets a rise out of making some quips about food that Cueseg finds so horrifying that it cracks his Stoic demeanor. Daylen at one point catches Lyrah using her augmented hearing to eavesdrop on the people they pass, and takes a (self-admittedly) juvenile pleasure out of teasing her about it, commenting to himself that she needs to lighten up. She gradually does, and the two begin exchanging some snark instead of the usual ham.

In the Blood: Discussed. Lyrah initially believes a monstrous parent will create a monstrous child, insisting that the son of Dayless the Conqueror wouldn't even be capable of a Heroic Vow to fight evil, which is why she so intensely distrusts Daylen even with his cover story. Ahrek takes the opposite view, and frequently ends up defending Daylen when other characters attack Daylen based on his "parentage."

Floating Continent: Double Subverted. It's a World in the Sky setting, but the only major continent mentioned so far is Tellos (when Daylen at one point sits on the edge and gazes off into the distance, it mentions how, due to the setting being vertically looped, he can see copies of the same distant clouds stacked on top of one another, but no distant continents are mentioned), but there are several subcontinents floating above Tellos, so relative to Tellos, those fit this trope.

Stay in the Kitchen: Reconstructed and inverted by practitioners of the religion of Matriology. These folk have a matriarchal culture that holds that it is the nature of women to give life, whereas the nature of men is to take life, Both of which are acknowledged as necessary acts. Thus in, say, a farmer's house, the husband's duty is to pick the fruit and slaughter the cattle, while the wife's duty is to plant the seeds and prepare the food. Thus it isn't so much that women aren't allowed out of the kitchen so much as that men aren't allowed in it.

My God, What Have I Done?
 Shadow of the Conqueror / int_a1b141f4
comment
My God, What Have I Done?: Ten years before the book begins, Daylen finally comprehended the full extent of his crimes, which sent him headlong into depression. He strongly considered killing himself then and there, but decided to stay alive simply because he felt he deserved the punishment of his endless guilt. He has the reaction all over again whenever he's reminded of one of his worse crimes. When Lyrah attempts to arrest him, a combination of self-defense instinct, anger at the injustice, and his own berserk tendencies makes Daylen prepare to fight her to the death. After escaping and calming down, Daylen is horrified that he almost tried to kill her, considering it Fury-Fueled Foolishness given who she is. The next time they cross swords, he does everything he can to avoid seriously injuring her, saying point-blank that he'd never kill her even in self-defense. Daylen doesn't think much of killing Blackheart given what an Asshole Victim he is, until he finds out that Blackheart was telling the truth about being a royal bastard, and was Daylen's own son. This knowledge is incredibly painful for Daylen, as Offing the Offspring was one crime he never committed as Dayless, and the loss of his beloved first two children was the catalyst that turned him into Dayless in the first place. Cueseg's response when he learns exactly why Lyrah has a Paralyzing Fear of Sexuality, as he realizes just how much pain he's been causing her with his antics.

Cool Sword
 Shadow of the Conqueror / int_a6275bef
comment
Cool Sword: Imperious is Daylen's masterpiece sunucle, the most perfect and powerful sword ever created in Tellos: blue and gold, longer than ordinary one-handed swords, capable of Absurd Cutting Power, with a hilt stylized to resemble a flaring sun and enough of Daylen's dark secrets cooked into it to render it impervious to the darkstone that normally shatters sunucles. The sunforger's guild used to constantly petition him to just let them examine it, which he absolutely refused. One of his last regrets before jumping off the edge of the world is that he isn't strong enough to carry Imperious with him so that they can leave the world together, and his first objective after becoming young again is to get back home to reunite with his beloved sword.

Commie Land: The Dawn Empire was essentially a fantasy version of this. During his reign, Dayless enacted a number of USSR-style policies, which include, among other things, confiscating all private property and food available, so as to make everyone in his empire "equal". He also relentlessly persecuted and killed anyone who could threaten his rule within the Empire.

Final Solution: Dayless dealt with the aristocracy who killed his family by purging every last royal or noble in Hamahra and the surrounding countries, racking up a death toll in the thousands. The Daybreak Massacre—the destruction of a city of a million people—is also referred to as a genocide.

Icy Blue Eyes: Lyrah, emphasizing her cold and no-nonsense personality as an Archknight and the book's Sympathetic Inspector Antagonist. Daylen remembers them as Innocent Blue Eyes back when she was fourteen, showing her vulnerability. This is a particularly painful detail for him, as the fear in her eyes was the detail that later made him realize that he'd become a Serial Rapist.

Fatal Flaw
 Shadow of the Conqueror / int_aba8065b
comment
Fatal Flaw: Daylen's appears to be Anger. His response to a vagrant trying to rob and murder him? Slicing off his hand, stabbing him in several non-lethal areas, dismembering him one limb at a time, decapitating him, and then finally pinning his head to the wall with a dagger. He's disturbed by how easily he slipped into this kind of extreme violence afterwards, but rationalizes that a murderer on the street was definitely an Asshole Victim. Ahrek's is Hatred. Even after he believed Dayless was dead, he resented that he didn't get to strike the final blow himself, he couldn't let go of his hatred, and his family was still dead, leaving him to obsess over the man he hated for years on years. Lyrah's is Vengeance. She fully embraces The Power of Hate without suffering for it like Ahrek does, but her overwhelming desire for revenge eventually leads her to risk millions of innocent people's lives for a chance to kill Daylen.

Fortunately for them, an enraged Lyrah decapitates them before Daylen can pull anything off.

Daylen's snarking during his interrogation pisses Lyrah off enough that she crushes a couple of toes on one of his feet. Daylen responds with indulgent approval, regenerating the damage, thinking that it was Worth It, and joking that all he's suffering is "a little pain in the ass." This is, of course, a good example of what Daylen is like in the "juvenile playfulness" phase of his wild mood swings.

Most of Lyrah's trauma buttons double as Berserk Buttons. She also initially thinks that her hostility towards Daylen is this, and even apologizes for judging him based on who his father is and how he looks. Then she finds out who he really is, and it turns out that the hostility she felt was more than justified.

A Nazi by Any Other Name: Played With. More like communist. The book actually features a group of people called Dawnists (named for the Dawn Empire, which they want to bring back) who are analogues to Neo-Nazis, their monstrous idol being Dayless the Conqueror himself. The main difference between these guys and real life Neo-Nazis is that there's actually no evidence of racism in either the Dawnists, Dayless, or Dayless's policies. The desire to Take Over the World and give a Historical Hero Upgrade to a despot and war criminal they're all too young to have actually experienced firsthand are still there, though.

Pride: Being an emperor for several decades left Daylen with a seriously inflated ego. Several times, he's able to swallow it and force himself to not treat other people as beneath him, but elements of his old personality still leak through. He notes that it's pure pride and his hatred of losing that enables him to fight back against Ahrek and Lyrah with every iota of his ability, because otherwise he'd be more than happy to just let them kill him. His sheer outrage at a beggar attacking him in particular shows this.

Hammered into the Ground: After Lyrah smashes Daylen's face in and tries to arrest him, Ahrek sweeps her feet out from under her with his telekinetic powers and then slams her into the ground hard enough to create a crater. She crawls right out, but it provides enough time for Daylen to escape. Daylen later ends up on the receiving end of this when Lyrah hits him hard enough to plow him into the ground, leaving him to frantically pull himself out of it before the beatdown can resume.

Vigilante Man: Daylen, shortly after he gets his powers, starts slaughtering criminals as his first act of fighting evil. While there is a law in place to clear people of killing rapists and murderers that they catch in the act, he eventually is forced to turn himself and be interrogated to determine if he was truly justified or just committing murder.

Ahrek later reveals to him that the source of the problem is him buying from the infamously low-quality Hamahran street vendors, rather than going to a restaurant.

Played for Drama. Lyrah notices Daylen staring at her face when he realizes that she's a Broken Bird and questions him about it. Desperately fishing for a lie, Daylen tries to cover what he was really thinking about by saying that he was staring because she's beautiful, remembering belatedly that this is one of her trauma and berserk buttons. Cue Lyrah blushing with mingled embarrassment and rage, and Daylen mentally cursing himself with gusto.

comment
Hypocrite: Daylen, as a running theme: As emperor, he eventually used tactics and policies that contradicted every ideal he claimed to be fighting for, such as giving special privileges to his soldiers to keep them loyal to him—effectively creating a new aristocracy. He declared that no one would own property in the Dawn Empire, not even him, but as the absolute monarch of a totalitarian government, that effectively meant that the entire empire was his own personal property. He also outlawed sex slaves and instituted the death penalty for rapists ... and then proceeded to kidnap and rape hundreds of girls who were still in their teens. After his transformation, Daylen constantly complains how petty, immature, overly sensitive, and self-righteous everyone around him is. As Ahrek points out, the person who best exemplifies all of those traits is ... Daylen himself. Daylen responds with a Hypocrisy Nod. Daylen immediately starts executing rapists and murderers in the most brutal fashion possible, taking every opportunity to say how despicable those kinds of people are. Daylen also won't tolerate anyone judging him, who has hundreds of rapes and tens of millions of murders under his belt. After pissing Lyrah off by mashing one of her trauma buttons, Daylen is "stunned" at what a Mood-Swinger she is. He then immediately proceeds to froth at the mouth in rage over her calling him "a pubescent troublemaker" and "kid." He makes another Hypocrisy Nod over this, marveling at how absurd it is for him to be angry with her of all people for such a small thing as being bossy, but Daylen's unstable emotional register doesn't always keep up with his reasoning. After administering some corporal punishment on Sain for not standing in the correct position, Daylen refuses to accept that Sain just forgot about Daylen's orders. Later in the book, after ranting at Lyrah and feeling guilty over it, Daylen tells himself that he only did it because he "forgot" who she was. Really, Daylen?

Prone to Tears: Daylen is a male example Played for Drama. It's mostly from remorse, but there's an element of immaturity to it as well, as he's also a Psychopathic Manchild. If he cried any more often, everyone would be sailing across an endless ocean instead of an endless sky. The chance of showers increases exponentially when Lyrah is nearby, or at least on his mind.

Sympathetic Slave Owner: Slavery is a thing in this world, and at least as it is known in Hamahra, is not depicted as evil. One enters slavery via one of two methods: voluntarily (exactly why anyone would choose to become a slave is not elaborated on), or as a criminal sentence. Voluntary slaves get a copper metal collar, whereas criminals sentenced to slavery get a steel one with the duration of their sentence and the date of their conviction etched into it. Daylen receives this at the end of then novel as a life sentence after finally being tried for his warcrimes.

Beyond Redemption: The Daybreak Massacre is seen as Dayless the Conqueror proving himself irredeemable by most of the world. The city had rebelled against the Dawn Empire, disrupting the supply chain and causing a serious defeat. Dayless responded by flying to the city with his annihilators and reducing it to a smoking ruin, killing over a million innocent people in one stroke. This was the action that prompted the Archknights to finally set aside their political neutrality and enter the fray against the Dawn Empire.

Functional Magic
 Shadow of the Conqueror / int_dfe120e5
comment
Functional Magic: There are three varieties of magic in the setting: Lightbringing magic is good-aligned, and obtained by being a sufficiently-good person. It grants abilities that basically make you a D&D cleric. Note however that if you commit any immoral act, even so much as lying, you lose your powers. Lightbinding magic is neutrally-aligned, and obtained by a mysterious ritual called "The Vigil," which Daylen may or may not have accidentally reverse-engineered. It's first variant, Lifebinding, grants you the ability to temporarily enhance physical attributes, such as vision, strength, mass, stamina, etc. The second type, Worldbinding, gives external powers like gravity manipulation or lightning blasts. Lightblaring magic is evil-aligned, and seems to be restricted to the Shade. It grants the abilities that they use in their endless attempts to wipe out humanity, such as darkness fields, flight, Telekinesis, controlling dead flesh, and killing plants in the area. There is also sunforging, the process of crafting magical objects called sunucles. How it fits into the above scheme is unclear, as it seems to function as a skill that anyone can learn, like masonry or playing music.

First, during his battle with Lyrah, Daylen is desperately trying to think of some way to get an edge, and decides to do so by channeling Light to his intelligence, berating himself for not thinking to try that at any point earlier in the story. Later, he realizes he can channel Light into his skill with the sword, and then later into the sword itself, it being an item he sunforged using his own blood.

Even so, his enemies referred to him as "Dayless," which says something about how light and dark are viewed in Tellos.

Fully-Embraced Fiend: Every Shade was once a human exposed to darkness for too long, and they resemble a monstrous version of their former self for a time after they turn. Greater and Lord Shade are fully intelligent, but are completely devoted to destroying humanity, functioning as the leaders of the Shade.

 Shadow of the Conqueror / int_e794cb54
comment
Powered by a Forsaken Child: One way to minimize the weaknesses of sunforged weapons and armor is to use sunucles linked to other people, so the user won't be harmed if they're shattered by darkstone. This is considered so dirty and vile that even Dayless refused to do it, though Captain Blackheart is more than happy to use this tactic with wild abandon, linking his sword and shield to his hostages.

The Strength of Ten Men
 Shadow of the Conqueror / int_e809d11d
comment
The Strength of Ten Men: Lightbinding is multiplicative in all attributes, and Daylen can achieve sixteen times his normal strength with all of his bonds. Lyrah, due to her specialization, seems to have somewhere between 64 and 512 times her normal strengthnote This isn't including the extra strength she can get from using her armor or by increasing her mass; whether she's using a level-six or a level-nine bond isn't clarified, but she can lift over seven metric tons with ease.

OOC Is Serious Business: Ahrek notes how strange and bizarre Daylen's behavior (acting very uncomfortable, dropping matters when he'd usually argue, trailing off his sentences, abruptly ending conversations, going to his room and sinking into an Angst Coma) around Lyrah is, even by Daylen's standards, but doesn't figure out what's causing it until Cueseg puts things together and gives him The Reveal.

Law of Inverse Fertility: Dayless swore never to have children again after his family was murdered, giving strict orders to his agents to make sure none of the girls he paid, seduced, or raped ended up pregnant. His "contraceptive measures," however, failed spectacularly, and he unwittingly sired hundreds of children. His attendants were too terrified of his wrath to tell him, and instead worked to hide all the children.

Jumping off the edge and passing the point that would normally loop you back to the top of the world while touching either sunstone or darkstone with bare skin instantly kills you.

Go-Go Enslavement: Dayless eventually forbade the girls he kept to wear any clothes at all, instead covering them with jewelry meant to emphasize and call attention to their private parts, even making them wear these outfits no matter who was present at the time. The same situation is later seen from the point of view of one of his victims, describing how unbelievably degrading and humiliating it was.

Detect Evil
 Shadow of the Conqueror / int_f88bba7c
comment
Detect Evil: Measuring the "inner Light" of an individual can provide clues to their morality, because repeated wrongdoing weakens that inner Light, and living by a moral code strengthens it. It's far from perfect, though, as a Knight Templar will still have a bright inner Light due to their firm moral conviction, and low Light can result from very minor moral failings. The Shade are particularly easy to detect, as they're the only ones who have no inner Light at all.

Ephebophile: Dayless had a strong sexual preference for girls still in their teens, some of them as young as fourteen. This was the legal age of marriage and consent during the Dawn Empire, but is considered pedophilia by the standards of modern Hamahra. Daylen still struggles with this in the present, experiencing personal problems when around young, beautiful girls.
