* WeakButSkilled: Amara is no slouch when it comes to windcrafting, but she lacks the raw power that the High Lords and other strong Citizens might have. That doesn't stop her from being one of the best fliers in the world, compensating her lower power by sheer talent and dedication.

* SpareToTheThrone: While Max has no ambitions to take his father's position of High Lord, Dorotea is aware that should something happen to her Crassus, or if Max gets enough support from Antillus' Legions and the other High Lords, he could challenge Crassus for the position. She views his actions, growing prominent in the legions, becoming friends with the page of the First Lord, as a plot to get around his illegitimacy. So she seeks to kill him.



* SpareToTheThrone: After his uncle starts his war and his cousin joined in, Crassus ends up becoming a potential heir to the lands of Kalare. He is of high birth, his mother is Kalarus' sister, making him first in line to take over the lands once the war is over. It left him in a nice political situation where he couldn't be killed if Arnos tried to make him commit an legal but morally bankrupt order and Crassus refuses.



* WhatTheHellHero: When he finds out that his mother is alive and Tavi never told him, he doesn't take it well and calls him out on it.

to:

* WhatTheHellHero: When he finds out that his mother is alive and Tavi never told him, he doesn't take it well and calls him out on it. By the epilogue, he still is refusing to speak to Tavi.



* GreaterNeedThanMine: A variation. After the attack by the Vord Queen to kill their medics, Kitai awakens enough to see a dead Foss, and both Tavi and Crassus dying. Dorotea is also down from her collar. Does she save Tavi first, with her limited energy? She uses it to save Dorotea, knowing the High Lady would have the power to save both Tavi and Crassus and others later in combat.

* AlwaysChaoticEvil: Inverted. They are a very lawful evil, especially the current Queen who would honor deals struck with her. The others under her rule are also lawful, justified by being part of a HiveMind.

* IfIWantedYouDead: There is a training skill all Cursors must learn. It is to sneak up upon an unsuspecting victim completely unnoticed and within distance to plunge one's blade into the back of the neck, severing major arteries and the trachea. He does this to Fidelias when he begins to suspect something is not quite right with "Marcus". Fidelias realizes if Marcus wants him dead, he wouldn't have announced himself first.

* ReliableTraitor: After turning on Gaius, he serves the Aquitaines fairly faithfully despite not liking them much personally. Until he decided Tavi would be a better leader than Attis, at least.

* EarlyBirdCameo: Tavi cites his work at the Academy in ''Academ's Fury'', the book before he was actually introduced.



* WhatYouAreInTheDark: He finds himself in a quandary in ''First Lord's Fury''. Magnus, he realizes, is close to putting all the pieces together and right now knows "Marcus" isn't what he claims to be. As they are talking, some vord-lizards attack. Fidelias is able to kill two, but the wounded third is close to killing Magnus. Fidelias realizes no one could blame the wounded vet for not being able to save Magnus. Help is on their way and would finish off the last one with ease. He could save himself a lot of trouble if he just lets Magnus die. Magnus realizes this too. But when he looks at his actions, he sees they are the same treacherous, self-serving evil actions that have scoured the nobility, that it is the type of thing Sextus' manipulations led to, and would be something the boy Fidelias used to be would be horrified by. Fidelias screams in fury and saves Magnus' life.

* WhatYouAreInTheDark: He finds himself in a quandary in ''First Lord's Fury''. Magnus, Soon after he realizes, realizes Magnus is very close to putting all discovering his true identity (which Tavi would execute him for if he'd known), the pieces together and right now knows "Marcus" isn't what he claims to be. As they pair of them are talking, some vord-lizards attack. Fidelias is able to kill two, but the wounded third is close to killing Magnus. Fidelias attacked by three Vord while alone. Marcus realizes no one he could very easily MakeItLookLikeAnAccident (after all, who would blame the wounded vet him for not only being able to save Magnus. Help is on their way kill two and would finish off a half Vord), but also that doing so is the last one with ease. He could save himself a lot kind of trouble if he just lets Magnus die. Magnus realizes this too. But when he looks at his actions, he sees they are the same treacherous, cold, self-serving evil actions action that have scoured the nobility, that it is the type of thing Sextus' manipulations led to, and would be something the boy Fidelias used to be would be horrified by. Fidelias screams in fury and saves Magnus' life.he hated Alera's nobility for. He ends up saving Magnus.

Added DiffLines:

* HateSink: Basically the main purpose of his existence in the first book is to give readers a villain they could hate wholeheartedly (Atsurak doesn't even interact with the main cast in his brief appearances, Team Fidelias operates on EvilIsCool basis and has some redeeming traits).
