* PutOnABus: Like Gentius, Requiescat, Minnow and the rest of Temeraire's RagtagBunchOfMisfits from ''Victory of Eagles,'' she hasn't appeared since. However, she has maintained a (very) minor presence as Temeraire's pen pal.

* MagikarpPower: As a hatchling, his airsacs were so large he could barely move. Only Demane will take care of him; the aviators and dragon-surgeon wanted to mercy-kill him. Later, it's revealed that the airsacs are so big because he is, at full growth, one of the largest dragons anyone in the cast has ever seen. There's one (known) contender in the Incan Empire of his scale, and the Sui-Riu in the eight book are larger (but flightless): but he's still substantially larger than any European dragon.

* TeamMom: Yes. She's significantly older and more experienced than the rest of Temeraire's usual gang and freely advises them on various matters, usually in regards to the proper treatment of their captains and crew (see BabiesMakeEverythingBetter above).

* BabiesMakeEverythingBetter: She ''insists'' that Hammond marries at least several times and gives her many children to care for. By the time they reach Japan, she's become impatient with his "reluctance".

Added DiffLines:

** That said, ''League of Dragons'' makes it clear that he only treats dragons well because that will make them more willing to fight for him. Since air superiority is a key part of contemporary warfare, making sure his dragons go above and beyond in terms of loyalty gives him that much more of an advantage over the rest of the world.

* StopHelpingMe: [[invoked]] She outfits poor Granby in BlingOfWar and takes off after prizes ''constantly'' despite his efforts to restrain her, because she thinks he's the best and should therefore have the best clothes and best wealth. [[spoiler:She's ''so'' eager to cover him in glory that she offers him as a husband to the Incan empress.]] She does not consult Granby in any of this.

* TheDitz: Volatilus is a sweetie, but brains are not his strong point. He's so scatterbrained, in fact, that Laurence and Temeraire initially suspect him of being mentally disabled. Greylings just aren't very smart in general, being bred for speed above all else.
