*** Sloppy in terms of effects. While the attacks work, Nasaug gets similar results using much less power. Sarl tends to favor big flashy attacks that use a lot more power than is required.

* KaleidoscopeEyes: In the first book, Kitai's eyes are described as "iridescent" this is apparently a trait of all Marat "whelps" (i.e. those who haven't bonded to a totem yet). They change permanently to green once she bonds to Tavi.

* EyeColorChange: Bonding with a chala makes their eyes become the eye color of the chala.



* KaleidoscopeEyes: Marat children, called by the gender-neutral term whelps, have multi-colored eyes until the time of their bonding. When they bond with their ''chala'', their totem, their eyes change permanently to the eye color of their ''chala''.

* DoNotGoGentle: Rather than accepting his defeat and probable death, Kalarus ties his life to that of the ancient volcano fury, angering it so much that when he dies, the volcano will erupt. His hope is to unleash the great fury not only on the Crown's forces that lay siege to his last city but the tens, if not hundreds of thousands of civilians and refugees crowded into the city.

* DoNotGoGentle: Dying of old age, weak lungs, having walked several hundred miles in unpleasant environments, and having been poisoned secretly, Gaius Sextus does not run from the Vord but takes them on alone. He unleashes the long dormant volcano under his city and takes a huge number of Vord with him.



-->'''Invidia''': I believe I made a mistake in you, Arnos. I knew you were a [[SmugSnake pompous egotist with delusions of grandeur]], but I ''did'' believe you were at least competent.
-->'''Arnos''': We had a deal.
-->'''Invidia''': We had an understanding. But you've broken faith with me. You told me you hadn't aquired any of your troops as mercenaries. But your extremely well-supplied and well-armed and well-paid cavalry seem to have taken it upon themselves to loot and pillage every human habitation they come across.
-->'''Arnos''': Their Tribunes are acting independently of my orders.
-->'''Invidia''': You're the commander of these Legions, dear. You're responsible for what they do. That's rather why one is able to attain glory and respect after a victory. Or don't they teach that at the Collegia.
-->'''Arnos''': How ''dare'' you lecture me on--
-->'''Invidia''': Don't make me raise my hand, Arnos. When I slap someone, he doesn't scurry away after.
-->'''Arnos''': You were willing enough to spill Aleran blood six weeks ago.
-->'''Invidia''': I'm willing to make sacrifices in pursuit of a greater goal. That's not the same as condoning the rape and murder of entire steadholts. There was no profit to those actions. No purpose. It's unprofessional. Idiotic. And I have difficulty tolerating idiots.
-->'''Arnos''': Then you should agree that this conversation is unprofitable, given the circumstances. We need to focus on the matter at hand.
-->'''Invidia''': Oh?
-->'''Arnos''': We're probably worried about nothing. Navaris is going to introduce our young captain to the crows, and that will solve the problems at hand.
-->'''Invidia''': Will it? I've made a decision about the problems at hand, Arnos.
-->'''Arnos''': What's that?
-->'''Invidia''': They're your problems. Solve them by yourself. If you manage to survive them, I may be willing to renegotiate our relationship. But until then, you're on your own.

* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: He may be a coward and a jerk, but when the going gets tough, he responds in kind. Like the time he disobeyed the Vord Queen despite having a discipline collar on. Also, he creates slaver collars more powerful then Invidia's, though that's at least in part because of tricks he learned from his father.

* 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.
