to:

* LivingLieDetector: In spite of Kvothe being a ConsummateLiar, she sees through his lies. Her streetwise nature helps with this.



%%* {{Adorable}}

%%* {{Adorable}}* {{Adorkable}}: He's a classic example of this, with his desire to have friends and constant kindness to Kvothe.

Added DiffLines:

* UnreliableNarrator: It's left unclear in the books how much her expulsion from the University is due to her, and how much due to sexism from the Masters.

* StrikeMeDownWithAllYourHatred: According to Skarpi, Haliax tried to get his former friend, Selitos, to kill him this way after he forced Selitos to watch the destruction of his city. However, Selitos knew that Haliax could never be killed, so cursed him with the shadows that surround him instead.

* AerithAndBob: Who would've thought in a setting with such fantastical names, that Hemme's first name would be Jason?

* EscapeArtist[[note]]The EscapeArtist trope is for characters who escape on pure skill, i.e., without superpowers. Taborlin escapes by knowing the Name of all things, which seems superpowerish. But in universe, Naming is a skill that can be taught; therefore it is not a superpower.[[/note]]

* GreaterScopeVillain: If Bast is to be believed, the Chthaeh is indirectly responsible for the existence of the Chandrian, as well as the Creation War and various other awful historical events.

to:

* YouCantFightFate: It's impossible to second-guess the Cthaeh. No matter what you choose, that choice will have been the worst possible choice you could make.


Added DiffLines:

* HeroicBSOD: Goes into one temporarily after he discovers that Kvothe spoke with the Cthaeh.


Added DiffLines:

* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: When Kvothe first mentions [[TheDreaded the Cthaeh]], Bast spectacularly and thoroughly flips out. This, more than anything else, underscores just how utterly ''terrifying'' the Cthaeh is.

* UpperClassTwit: Despite being a noble attending the University, he's not the brightest. His admissions went so badly that he had to sell his rings to pay for them.
