* GoodIsNotSoft: He's unambiguously on the side of good, but even [[SnarkKnight Harry]] respects him enough to keep the sassing to a minimum. When he tells you to move out of his way, you ''move.''



* ItWasAGift: As a fae, there is the danger of him applying a harsh or long measure of debt to any gift he brings a person, unless he uses his Kringle mask and claims it as a belated Christmas present.
* KnowledgeBroker: As Odin, he is this. If he doesn't know about it already, he will know it soon enough. He surprised Harry by knowing Harry had a daughter before Harry told him (and well before Ebenezer [=McCoy=]). He will also take payments in the form of information such as Harry setting up the White Court to tail Odin personally to make them reveal how they worked their spy network. This is to pay Odin for showing up at a meeting at all.

* SecretTestOfCharacter: He enjoys these. And from his perspective, as he has had his eye on Dresden for a while, everything Harry has chosen to do could be considered this. When all things are considered Odin likes and respects Harry enough to give him crucial information on his daughter's whereabouts, the exact nature of the curse the Reds plan to use her for, and a taste of the power Harry will be facing when he arrives. The price he charges Harry is ''nothing.''

* LongGame: The Archive plays this as part of being a HeroOfAnotherStory. When an Old One is consigned to her custody, Archive waits patiently for a thousand years or so, to ensure she is the last human alive who is aware of the name of an Old One and then deletes the name from the database. Then, bye-bye Old One.

* RaisedAsAHost: Her lineage has been specifically tasked with producing women who can host The Archive, but they typically wait until the woman is old enough to have enough like experience to keep her own personality. Ivy had to become The Archive after her mother committed suicide when she was a baby.
* PersonOfMassDestruction: She is ranked by the wardens as on par with the Winter Lady and Summer Lady. Harry guesses she is actually stronger. And since knowledge is power in the Dresden-verse, everyday more information is written or typed, which increases her power.

* EvilBrit: Subverted: ''Skin Game'' sheds more light on him. He has none of the upper-class affectations normally associated with the trope (if anything, he comes across as a NouveauRiche LondonGangster), and is a ConsummateProfessional who ends up working for the villains more often than not because EvilPaysBetter, but doesn't hesitate to call out his employers for being needlessly cruel when he finds it necessary.

* GaiasVengeance: Of the 'Gaia's Avenger' type. When Dresden says that mortals have moved beyond the Greek gods, Meditrina snaps that in doing so they despoiled the Earth. She wants to return the world to the stewardship of the Greek gods, where it was better maintained.
