Plot Points Introduced
- Denarians: The Denarians are unions of a human host and a Fallen Angel. There are thirty Fallen, each bound to a tarnished silver Roman denarius which bears its respective Fallen's sigil; the thirty denarii represent the thirty pieces of silver paid to the apostle Judas to betray Jesus, and may possibly be those very coins.
- Fellowship of Saint Giles: The Fellowship of St. Giles (named for the patron saint of lepers and other Outcasts) is made up of people who are half-human and more specifically those who have been infected by Red Court vampires but have yet to drink the lifeblood of another human to complete their transformation. The Fellowship helps its members control their urges, support each other, and fight the vampires who infected them.
- Nicodemus says the war between the Knights of the Cross and The Denarians is 20 centuries old (page 352).
- This book takes place "a few years" after 1997, when the Shroud was nearly destroyed in a mysterious fire (page 28).
