Somehow while reading the first series I got it into my head that the Imperial Saik used the setting sun as their main attack, while the Scarlet Spires used the dragonhead.  Is there any validity to that?  Basically, do each of the Anagogic schools have their own particular poetic devices that they use for doing things (none as deadly as the Gnosis's abstractions, but of greater or lesser potency to one another?)

They each have their own cluster of favourite tropes, just like literary traditions. They can also use different prostheses to leverage the detail and power of the semantic projections (as with Iswazi practices).
