Added DiffLines:

* SmallRoleBigImpact: In the main series, he only actually appears in two of the books, twice briefly in ''Stormbreaker'', and acting as TheDragon to Damian Cray in ''Eagle Strike'' before being [[spoiler: killed off.]] Despite that, his actions continue to influence Alex's life for the rest of the series, in addition for being the one indirectly responsible for Alex being railroaded into the spy game from the very beginning (by killing his uncle). Thanks to that, he received his own spin-off novel focusing on his origins.

* [[NoMrBondIExpectYouToDine No Mr.Rider, I Expect You To Dine]]: Taken to its logical extreme in ''Skeleton Key'' where the villain more or less tries to ''adopt'' him and treats him like his now-dead biological son, after Alex ends up getting captured. Much of the book is the BigBad letting (or rather, forcing) Alex to live with him in his luxury home, getting him to take part in various activities (like horse riding) and telling Alex WeCanRuleTogether. And dining with him, of course. He even forbids his {{Mooks}} and TheDragon from harming him.
