Added DiffLines:

* CruelMercy: If someone has the nerve to pick a fight with him, he'll often refrain from using lethal force once he proves he ''can'', offering mercy in exchange for [[BlackmailIsSuchAnUglyWord a "favor" to be paid later.]]
* GeniusBruiser: He's usually a polite and cultured individual, and handles the [=PTC=] without any visible aid, but je's more than capable if someone picks a fight, unleashing the ferocity befitting of his kind with powerful evocation magic and his magical [[BladeOnAStick naganita.]]


Added DiffLines:

* NeatFreak: He's obsessed with his appearance, constantly smoothing his robe, stroking his tusks, and checking his fingernails.

* TheFriendNoboodyLikes: His allies and companions have called him selfish (typical for the Fated, alas), rude, overly stern, and contributing little to conversations.

Added DiffLines:

* NotSodifferent: He was surprised when a bariaur compared him to Harys Hatchis, whom Tarholt views as an "urgent buffoon"

* TheFriendNoboodyLikes: His allies and companions have called him selfish (typical for the Fated, alas), rude, overly stern, and contributing little to conversations.
* FriendsAreChosenFamilyArent: A dwarf's loyalty lies in family and clan, and Tarholt is no exception; his biggest reason for staying in Sigil, a place he dislikes, is to support Traban's Forge.
* IntrepidMerchant: If his dealings require him to hoof it from the Spire to the Dwarven Mountain, to Glorium, and back, he will.




to:

* OurDwarvesAreAllTheSame: He's tough, dour, adventurous, stubborn, and dedicated, almost to a fault, a typical dwarf.
* WrongGenreSavvy:
** In Sigil, dealing and associating with evil creatures is not always avoidable, but Tarholt doesn't like Estrevan simply because Estrevan is an ogre, a hardheaded policy that can often get him in trouble. (Of course, Estrevan doesn't help matters by commenting he ''would'' have Tarholt for lunch - literally - if this opposition occurred on Krynn.
** He also dislikes using portals, the usual form of transportation in the setting.

* DrunkOntheDarkside: Or rather, in painful withdrawal from it. Omott pines for the divine power he once had, but cannot return to Sung Chiang, so he now seeks another god to serve.

** Subverted in that there's a reason for it: [[spoiler:Qaida uses the fear of these contracts to blackmail others into serving her, often setting them up for her to steal their souls. Given Verden's age, Qaida is certain Verden has powerful secrets that would be of great use to her, if she could get control over the elf.]]



* MadOracle: Most see him as an eccentric old wise man, and he ''is'' one, more or less. As his "day job".

to:

* HalfHumanHybrid: As a Marquis Cambion, Rule-Of-Three is a direct offspring between a "true" Tanar'ri and a human. Some have speculated he may be one of Grazz't's offspring, but Rule-Of-Three denies it.
* MadOracle: Most see him as an eccentric old wise man, and he ''is'' one, more or less. As his "day job". Subverted in that he's not mad, merely playacting, and also in that he often manipulates the prophecies just to mess with peoples' heads.



* FauxAffablyEvil: [spoiler:She has the reputation of a doting old shopkeep with a grandmotherly personality; as a result, few victims suspect a thing until it's too late.]]

* BlessedWithSuck: Can steal the life from others to sustain her own existence, but ages at four times the normal rate, forcing her to steal lives much more frequently.



* MortalityPhobia: Nobody ever becomes what she is without suffering from this first. Usually unheard of for elves, she signed a contract promising the Dustmen use of her corpse upon death, simply as a dare. But an encounter with ghosts in an ancient tomb caused her to age several centuries before she escaped, and practically overnight, because terrified of dying.

* VampiricDraining: While not undead, she can use Energy Drain via touch on a single victim per day, using this to reduce her physical age. Her natural aging, however, is four times faster than a regular elf's, the down side of her powers.

A small group within the Sign of One faction that is making a big impact, this fledgling Sect claims to have ''found'' "The One", the individual who dreams up the entire multiverse. That individual is the mad bariaur, Terwolfe. Although many suspect that Prisine, the water genasi who leads the Sect, is just using him as a front to gain power. What's even more alarming is that the Will of One is openly campaigning under the promise they can use their powers to will a slain god back to life. And, their current candidate? None other than Aoskar, the God of Portals slain by Her Bladed Serenity Herself...

* CuteMonsterGirl: Prisine looks like an attractive human woman with thin scales on her arms and neck, skin that feels unusually cold and clammy to the touch, and long teal hair that sways back and forth under its own power. Her art also depicts her with large, almost beast-like ears, but they aren't mentioned in the text.
* HalfHumanHybrid: Prisine descends from some long-ago union between human and water elemental.
* MadOracle: Terwolf is presented as this by the Will of One. It's probably a scam.



A shator gehreleth who seeks to rewrite the lost Book of Keeping, making it possible for mortal casters to summon and command yugoloths once again.

* BookOfEldritchLore: The Book of Keeping he's recreating will function as this once it's complete.
* DreamWalker: Like all members of his kind, he has the ability to invade the dreams of mortals and [[DreamWeaver rewrite them to his will]]. He mostly uses this to visit Morvun, the infamously inept Bleaknik poet, and leave him with Xideous' own poems to use, although Morvun's ego means he rarely shares what's dreamed.
* FantasticRacism: He absolutely ''hates'' yugoloths, mostly because they consider themselves superior to gehreleths on the grounds that it's all but impossible for mages to summon yugoloths. He wants to change that.
* ForTheEvulz: Basically why he bothers slipping some of his own poetry into Morvun's dreams.



* BoisterousBruiser: He ''loves'' fighting, seeing it as a curious exchange. (He's not a good fighter, however, and it's likely he's only survived because any would-be assailants are wierded out by his antics.)

* AGodIAm: Before coming to Sigil, she posed as a goddess on a prime girl, simply so the inhabitants would worship and lavish attention on her; being 20 feet tall with semi-divine powers made it easy. That is, until a ''real'' deity - a powerful one named Skeartim - got upset from her stealing his worshippers. The whole reason she's in Sigil is because he can't get to her there, putting her in self-imposed exile until he forgets about it. (And gods have long memories.)

Added DiffLines:

* GildedCage: How she views her life in Sigil. It's incredibly comfortable, but, she has no real freedom to ever leave the city.

to:

* NeutralNoLonger: Inverted; its InUniverse alignment was NeutralEvil to begin with, but it is now TrueNeutral. It's willing to shift anywhere on the axis required in order to meet its goal.

to:

* WellIntentionedExtremist: Much like Koe, she feels the Blood War is a NecessaryEvil, and seeks to prolong it to keep the fiends only fighting each other.

Added DiffLines:

* MuggingTheMonster: What you'll experience if you try to steal her logbook; many thieves have tried to swipe it, knowing the information it holds is valuable, but they always regret it. It's booby-trapped with a ''chain contingency'' that first hits the thief with ''chain lightning'' to make him drop it, then ''suggestion'' with the order to leave immediately.

* FauxaffAblyEvil: Most folks who go to him for advice claim he's rather approachable for a demon, although his covert activities shed doubt on his motives.

* BazaarOfTheBizaare: Her shop sells spell components, enjoying excellent business in a city where mages are common. Having such ready access to gemstones aids in her overall scheme.

* TheVamp: Her usual MO is to flirt with some drunk so she can lure him to a secluded spot and drain him. In a city like Sigil, it's rare that the occasional corpse of a drunk adventurer raises suspicion.

Added DiffLines:

* GreaterScopeVillain: It's hinted that Patch's ability is a reflection of a similar entity - the size of a mountain - in the Abyssal plane where razorvine originated, used by demons to spy on everything ''everywhere'' the plant grows.

* RuleOfThree: He seems to be the AnthropomorphicPersonification of the concept, and tends to reflect it. As an advisor, he always gives three pieces of advice, and requires three items of payment. (Value of such items can vary.)

* BestServedCold: [[spoiler:A major motivation of her plans, seeing as the Lady crushed the other Incanterium out of Sigil centuries ago.]]
