- The series can also be read in The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II.
- This novel is one of the tales themed about "vampires" from Erebonian Folklore.
- According to J. Arendt, they are powerful fiends that suck the blood of humans; with no reflections and turn to ash in sunlight.
- Above them all are the Shinso, vampires whose powers transcend from their kin, eradicating their previous weaknesses and their origins from nature can allow them to change to their perspective.
