!!Godmother Aleksia
Once a Princess who had not one, but ''two'' Traditional Paths dogging her heels, she's now a Godmother, known as the Ice Fairy or the Snow Queen.

* AnIcePerson: As one might expect from her sobriquets, Aleksia is very well-versed in the use of snow and ice magic.
* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: This trope is, word-for-word, the way Aleksia thinks of her primary job--forcing some CharacterDevelopment upon the wishers in the process.
* TheWomanWearingTheQueenlyMask: Aleksia's job requires her to project an image of being aloof, distant, and untouchable, but she's becoming rather lonely.

* BoringButPractical: Her modus operandi. After a lifetime of mistreatment and uncertain meals, Elena prefers to get the most out of as little effort as possible, even if it's occasionally inconvenient. Her Brownies are especially proud of her for this, as it means she's never run out of magic in a tight spot, something that's common among Godmothers her age, and once doomed a kingdom for three generations when the Godmother failed to stop it.



* GoodIsNotSoft: Isabella, the main character of the sixth book in the series, realises that the good godmother can be ruthless when the situation calls for it. And in her own book Elena had no problem stabbing an Evil Sorceress with a needle with a sleeping spell on it, condemning the other woman to a hundred years sleep.

Added DiffLines:

* AwesomeButImpractical: He eventually realizes the clothing he insisted on wearing during his service to Elena was this. Despite its resemblance to proper military wear, it was far too ornamented, tight, and hot for anything truly strenuous. Later, Hob comments that Alexander probably can't fit into "that candy-soldier tunic" anymore after months of hard labor.


Added DiffLines:

* DefiantCaptive: Deconstructed. His attempts to insult Elena do nothing and are occasionally mocked, he can't hurt her due to her magic protections, and post EpiphanyTherapy, he realizes his insistence on wearing his own clothing rather than what's provided was horribly impractical and uselessly stubborn.
* EpiphanyTherapy: He's given a dose of this from a wandering Fae.

Added DiffLines:

* TookALevelInCharacterDevelopment: Daphne, at the end of ''The Fairy Godmother'', as detailed above, after several months of thankless labour she's not just losing lots of weight but becoming a better person for it. It's implied that if she keeps going with her CharacterDevelopment, the Two Old Ladies of the village will give Elena a call to make sure she gets a suitably magic KarmicReward; ie finding some gold in the course of her duties, enough to buy her way out of indentured servitude and maybe even enable her to marry.

Alexander is the second son of King Henrik of Kohlstania and future Commander of the Army. He is also a PrinceCharmless. When sent by his father to quest for the hand of Princess Kylia of Fleurberg, he fails the first test, that of kindness. His rudeness and cruelty is enough that Elena turns him into a donkey.

* AllMenArePerverts: He certainly was eager to seduce Elena.

When sent by his father to quest for the hand of Princess Kylia of Fleurberg, he not only fails the first test, that test he's set to - one of kindness. His rudeness and cruelty is enough kindness - he fails it so drastically that Elena turns him into a donkey.

* AllMenArePerverts: He certainly was eager to seduce Elena.

* CinderellaCircumstances: The only thing that prevented the Tradition from making her a Princess was that the only Prince in the kingdom was a very young boy.

* BlindWithoutEm: Wears "oculars" which are basically glasses. Initially, they're straight up NerdGlasses. Later, her mother's jeweler makes her some new one that are more flattering.

* [[HalfHumanHybryd Half-Human Hybryd]]: Her father was [[FairFolk Fae]], making her only Fairy Godmother that has some claim to first part of title. This is frightening, as in spin-off we learn that such children [[spoiler: have [[PhysicalGod godlike power]]. Example we're given? [[Myth/ClassicalMythology Olympians]]!]]
