* NoPlaceForMeThere: At the end of the first trilogy, Fitz believes that because of everything he did and went through to keep the Six Duchies safe, he no longer belongs there. However, [[spoiler: the later books subvert this, as Fitz learns that it was only his own emotional issues (some mundane and some caused by pumping memories into skill stone) that led him to think he no longer belonged with his loved ones.]]

* FatalFlaw: Careful reading indicates that his HeroicSelfDeprecation is actually pretty extreme; count the number of times that he's been "rebuked" by his friends, and then count the number of times that he either refuses to stand up for himself or tries to bend to multiple, conflicting demands. By the end of the first trilogy, there is literally no aspect of his personality or character, other than loyalty, that he considers in a positive light, and and there are very few insults that he defends himself against. As such, despite having some useful skills and resources, he refuses to take action at certain critical moments [[spoiler: most apparent during King Shrewd's murder and Regal's taking of the throne]] when he could have made a huge difference. In later books, this low self-regard leads him to [[spoiler: abandon nearly everyone he loves for years, under the assumption that they'd be fine, if not better off, without him. Notably, Chade, Burrich, and Patience all seem hurt by Fitz's assumption that this was the case.]]

He also has a tendency, in later books, to isolate himself and avoid seeking help or support from people who would gladly give it, because he vastly underestimates their affection toward him. For example, [[spoiler: in the ''Tawny Man Trilogy,'' he basically abandons almost everyone who loves him for years under the assumption that they'd be just fine, if not better off, without him.]]

* WellDoneSonGuy: Having been abandoned and raised as a bastard really did a number on him, such that he reacts very strongly to praise or disapproval from Chade and Burrich.

* ScaledUp: Becomes scaled and even grows wings as she becomes an Elderling. * WingedHumanoid: Thanks to Sintara.

* DragonRider: His dragon is the only dragon who will allow her keeper to ride her.

* FearlessFool: He comes off as this quite a bit
to:
* FearlessFool: He comes off as this quite a bit bit. * ProudWarriorRaceGuy: Becomes this in ''Blood of Dragons'' as he merges with a previous Elderling warrior. * ScaledUp: As with all Elderlings, he takes on dragon traits as his bond with Heeby deepens.

* AlphaBitch: Most of the queens bar Relpda.
to:
* AlphaBitch: Most of the queens bar Relpda.Relpda and Heeby.

* AlphaBitch: BlueAndOrangeMorality: They pay little attention to human laws and customs, preferring to follow their own savage natures. * BreathWeapon: They can breathe acid, though only when they're healthy. * CharacterisationMarchesOn: The dragons' personalities, save for the main characters, seem to change from book to book. Most of the queens bar Relpda.notably, Spit goes from a docile if dumb dragon to a vicious little shit. * GiantFlyer: The drakes, once fully grown, especially Kalo.

* AlphaBitch: Most of KaleidoscopeEyes: As they grow, their eyes develop a whirling, multi-colored, hypnotic effect. * MixAndMatchCritters: They're dragons, but they appear to be feathered and spit venom the queens way cobras do. * OOCIsSeriousBusiness: You know that Silver is important when just a drop of it makes ''Spit'' start talking sense. * PetTheDog: Although they fundamentally consider their keepers to be lesser beings, most dragons bar Relpda.Sintara do seem to have varying degrees of affection for them. And even Sintara is surprisingly kind to Thymara during ''Blood of Dragons'', though she had an ulterior motive. * TheRightOfASuperiorSpecies: The dragons claim they have the right to take humans and exploit them as they see fit simply because they're better in every way imaginable. They also think humans should be grateful for this. * SurvivalMantra: "Kelsingra!"

to:
* TheVoiceless: Heeby can speak, but she's never heard to do so in text. * WhatMeasureIsANonHuman: Many forms of this are present throughout the series. Some people consider dragons to be nothing more than vicious talking animals, and it's all right to slaughter them for their meat, while people who have spent any time at all with dragons know this to be nonsense. The dragons themselves have this with the less intelligent members of their group; they refuse to consider pre-awakened Relpda and Spit as dragons at all.
