* AmbiguouslyBrown: While official sources have been far from consistent on this regard, Zoë is generally a lighter-skinned example of the trope. With ''Dreamfall Chapters'', Ragnar Tørnquist revealed that she is specifically a quarter Chinese, [[http://redthreadgames.com/forum/topic/3178-some-issues-with-chapters--portrayal-of-east-asians-and-villains/?p=132302 "mixed with Argentinian, Indian and English blood."]]

* AstralProjection: She has the power to project herself into other realms while dreaming. Unlike normal uses of this trope, Zoë's projected self is every bit as real as she is, able to interact with the world around her and be perceived by those around her. [[spoiler:In Book Three of ''Chapters'', her use of a Dreamer in an attempt to regain her memories causes her to shift completely into Arcadia, rather than merely projecting as she had before, though the end of Book Four suggests she was actually dreaming in both worlds, while her real self slept elsewhere. In Book 5, we learn she's been doing it for the entirety of Dreamfall: The Longest Journey, and Chapters both.]]
