* BadAss: [[spoiler:A couple of wounds from a rapier (including a swipe that just missed the eyes and then getting ''impaled'')]] would slow down most people, but Mutuku barely pauses before going into ass kicking mode.

[[spoiler:However, when Dodge attacks him with a rapier, Mutuku just starts knocking him around with a rolling pin while lecturing him about how this isn't a fencing match.]]

* LikeFatherLikeSon: Subverted. He bears a great resemblance to young Rendell, and has a similar taste in women based on his relationship with Jordan. But the final arc of the series is centred around how Tyler has been taught by his father's mistakes and matured into a better man.



* ChildrenAreInnocent: As the youngest and purest of the Locke children, the keys' magic means that they are revealed to him first. [[spoiler: As soon as Dodge possesses him, the keys start revealing themselves to the next candidates of Tyler and Kinsey.]]



* GenerationXerox: His relationship with Tyler is extremely similar to Duncan's with Rendell.



* BackFromTheDead: [[spoiler:Defied. After the Mending Key fixes her broken dishes, Nina tries to use it on his ashes. It doesn't work.]]

* PosthumousCharacter

to:

* PosthumousCharacterLaserGuidedAmnesia: Like all adults Rendell forgot the magic of the keys soon after graduating. He can only half-remember when drunk.
* PosthumousCharacter: It becomes increasingly clear that Rendell is just as important a character in the series as his children.



* WeirdnessCensor: Like nearly all adults, she has one that keeps her from recognizing the effects of the keys. [[spoiler:However, when she has too much to drink, she recognizes and tries experimenting with one key]].

* LaserGuidedAmnesia: Duncan forgot the magic of the keys as he grew up like all adults. However he can temporarily remember parts of it when exposed to obvious magic, such as [[spoiler: Dodge or the living shadows]].

* {{Irony}}: He is teaching Kinsey's class Hamlet, while at the same time he is paralyzed with inaction when he sees the ghost of Dodge. He later comments upon the irony.



* HellishPupils: Sometimes [[spoiler: when the parasite is pissed]]. notice that when Dodge sports them, he tend to be a lot more vicious and violent than usual.

* BookDumb: Though he is pretty fast at thinking on his feet, and [[spoiler: manages to piece together that Dodge and the Dark Lady are one and the same]].

to:

* BookDumb: Though he struggles at schoolwork, Tyler is by far the most cunning of his siblings. He is pretty fast at thinking on his feet, and [[spoiler: manages to piece together that Zack, Dodge and the Dark Lady are one and the same]].same, and creates a very safe hiding place for the Omega Key: inside his own head]].



* PluckyGirl: Actually ''enforced.'' She doesn't get scared or sad because she literally ''can't''.

to:

* PluckyGirl: Actually ''enforced.'' She doesn't get scared or sad because she literally ''can't''.
''can't''. Deconstructed in that this also means that she lacks the benefits of fears and sadness, such as truly empathizing with others' negative emotions, and avoiding dangers.



* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: A mild version, as he is a very active child with two teenage siblings going through emotional turmoil.



* RapeAsDrama

to:

* RapeAsDramaRapeAsDrama: It's only mentioned explicitly once, by Kinsey. Other than that it is just horribly suggested.



* CoolLoser

to:

* CoolLoser CoolLoser: Hanging out with him and Scot is "social suicide", but it's never made clear why.



* CoolLoser

to:

* CoolLoserCoolLoser: Hanging out with him and Jamal is "social suicide", but it's never made clear why.



* CrazyAwesome: When he removes his sanity using the Head Key, he strips naked in his school's quad and recites Byron.



* NiceGuy: He treats Tyler basically like his own nephew.



* GoOutWithASmile: He dreams that he's reunited with his wife, both young and beautiful, at the bottom of the river on the glorious summer day she drowned.



* HybridMonster: [[spoiler: Dodge is both a living echo and possessed by a demon.]]
* InstantExpert: He is so good at fencing because he used the Head Key to absorb a VHS tape of the fencing masters.



* SmugSnake: He underestimates Tyler's intelligence repeatedly.



* TheSociopath

to:

* TheSociopathTheSociopath: Dodge heavily implies he is such. Some of his behaviour implies that he is just severely mentally disturbed instead.
