** Alanna outright says at one point that his neglect has made her ruse much easier, but it still stings that even when he's sent a letter saying what a good job "Alan" is doing, he just writes back that he's glad Thom is doing well.

* DespairEventHorizon: It's implied that [[spoiler: The Chamber of the Ordeal pushed him across this during his ordeal, which resulted in his death.]]



* TheUnfought: Kel fights him repeatedly when they're both pages. When he becomes a squire he stops -- but that doesn't mean he stops trying to bring her down through indirect means. If he ever challenged her ''himself'', it would be a tacit admission that she has the same rights as other squires, and he couldn't do that.

A Scanran Warlord who starts to rally several clans of the notoriously uncooperative Scanran people under his banner and leading raids across the border into Tortal. By ''Lady Knigh'', Maggur has gained enough support to have himself crowned as king of Scanra and starts a war with Tortall in earnest. A notorious strategic and tactical genius whose methods of fighting showcase a great deal more forethought than most Scanran leaders, his biggest advantage is the killing devices created by Blayce the Gallan.
