* DidWeJustHaveTeaWithCthulhu: [[spoiler: Almost literally. While Jace is going mad from Emrakul's influence, he awakens in a tower in his mind, where he eventually meets Emrakul, in her angel form, Emeria, where the two... proceed to sit down, play a game of chess (Emrakul loses) and Jace futilely grasping for answers from Emrakul, who seems to be more interested in the act of communicating with Jace then to actually discuss anything Jace could understand. Jace even thought of the meeting as "Invite Emrakul for a cup of tea."]]

** Decisively ''not'' at Her request, he used such a link to ask Emrakul, a mind-wrecking, reality-warping Eldritch Abomination [[http://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/magic-story/emrakul-rises what does She call Herself]].

* HeelFaceTurn: Pulls one in ''Eldritch Moon'', culminating in her swearing the Oath of the Gatewatch.



** In [[http://magic.wizards.com/en/node/1032366 Innistrad's Last Hope]], it's the thought of Jace that drives her to save Innistrad from Emrakul.



* TokenEvilTeammate: It's safe to assume that she'll fill this role to the rest of the Gatewatch.

* DisappointedInYou: Among his final words to Nahiri are chastisement that she didn't kill him when last they met. He's specifically described as speaking teacher to student (and it makes a direct contrast with his congratulations to her when they sealed the Titan with Ugin's help, which carried a note of SoProudOfYou).



* NeverMyFault: Don't suggest or imply or hint that the chaos engulfing Innistrad might have something to do with what ''he'' did. It's the result of other, foolish, younger mages overstepping their bounds. Absolutely, completely, entirely. And when it's not, he was just responding as they should have expected him to. Yes.



* WhatTheHellHero: When he arrives after the Gatewatch has destroyed the Eldrazi Titans, he is initially furios. While Jace can explain the situation to him, he refuses to cooperate afterwards with the Gatewatch, and remarks that the other two of the three will not be as forgiving for their recklessness as he is.

** Funnily enough, WordOfGod states that J. Robert King (author of Apocalypse) based him on one of Magic's other authors, Scott [=McGough=]. So he's technically an AuthorAvatar, just the wrong author.

* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: Not quite literally, since as far as we know she's just trying to drive everything on Innistrad AxCrazy instead of actually destroying the plane, but close enough. She did not take Sorin's failure to show up and help Zendikar well, and was even less happy with his reasons, [[FromBadToWorse even worse]] when he chose to seal her for centuries in Helvault after her brief scuffle with Avacyn, and finally she snapped after returning home to see Ulamog busy devouring the plane.

* WeUsedToBeFriends: Compounding her rage toward Sorin is that she went to him assuming he was somehow in peril, because surely there would be no ''other'' reason he'd neglect to answer her distress call. His dismissal of her was, to her mind, a betrayal.

Introduced in Zendikar as a demon who lost his Planeswalker spark, Ob Nixilis was originally a human tyrant engaged with a neverending war with the people of his homeworld. He ultimately ended the war, and brought "peace" as it were, by offering the blood of two of his loyal soldiers to summon a demon. The demon wiped out all life from his world except for Ob Nixilis. Despot with no one to rule over, his spark ignited, showing him infinite worlds to conquer. Unfortunately, conquering the multiverse isn't easy. A failure led him to seek out the power of the Chain Veil, which instead cursed him with the body of a demon. He sought out the boundless mana of Zendikar to cure him of his curse, but an unfortunate run-in with Nahiri left his Planeswalker spark sealed away. However, the hedron that was sealing his spark has been removed from his skull, and his spark has been recuperating. He is ready to take out his revenge on the world that trapped him for so many centuries.
