Added DiffLines:

* {{Hypocrite}}: This is why Harry takes it so hard when he finds out Ebenezar is the Blackstaff; from his point of view, Ebenezar was the one who had hammered in how critical respecting the Laws of Magic is during Harry's training, and yet as the Blackstaff he had been breaking the Laws of Magic on the senior council's behalf for ''decades''.

Added DiffLines:

* TakingYouWithMe: Downplayed. She knew Lord Raith was the one responsible for killing her, but his magical defenses were too good for her to kill him outright with her death curse... so instead she used it to remove his ability to feed, steadily weakening him until he could meet his downfall at Harry's hands decades later.

* IdiotBall: Averted with how the Council is handling Molly Carpenter. Technically, they have a legal claim to her head for the crimes she committed as a human mage, regardless of her current status. That said, no one is stupid enough to even try walking to Mab and making this argument because Mab is many centuries older than any of them, many times stronger than them, and won't respond well to an attack against Molly.

** Enforced in ''Turn Coat'', where a traitor working as secretary to the Senior Council uses a subtle form of mind-control magic to manipulate them into doing things they wouldn't otherwise do.

* ObviouslyEvil: In the RPG, Harry states that the fact that [=DuMorne=] only dressed in black silk and leather and carved the end of his staff into a cobra should have rung an alarm bell or two.
