* LaserGuidedKarma: "Dowries! ''Dowries!''"''Dowries!''" - due to one of Barrayar's many legal quirks, the Emperor is able to set a minimum bride gift - dowry - for a Count's acknowledged female bastards. Gregor takes merciless advantage of this to punish Vormuir and discourage imitators until the relevant laws can be updated.

** In ''Gentleman Jole and the Red Queen'' it's hinted that enough historical dramas about the events of the Hagan Hub have been made for some people to piece together Miles's mercenary work on their own. Officially he can't comment and has to wait for things to be declassified in due course.

** In ''Gentleman Jole and the Red Queen'' it's hinted that enough historical dramas about the events of the Hagan Hub have been made for some people to piece together Miles's mercenary work on their own. Almost twenty years later than he would've liked, but still. Officially he can't comment and has to wait for things to be declassified in due course.

** So much so that at the end of ''Gentleman Jole and the Red Queen'' [[spoiler: her over protective behavior drives her daughter's nanny to ''tears'' more than once. Jole assures the young lady that it's just a relic of her experience with Miles and she'll eventually ease up as she realizes her new daughter isn't made of glass.]]

* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Often painted as Miles' opposite number among the Cetagandans, and apparently equally open-minded. In ''Diplomatic Immunity'', it's Benin that Miles contacts to avert a potential Cetagandan-Barrayaran conflict.

* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: When Illyan is injured in ''Memory'', it's a mark of her irritation at not being told about it that she complains that none of "you three louts" saw fit to keep her in the loop. A bemused Miles is shocked when he realizes that the three louts are himself, General Haroche and [[spoiler: Emperor Gregor]].

* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Miles really ''really'' regretted allowing Bothari to torture a pilot for information, who later died from complications directly caused by it. The fact he saw an extremely disturbing side of HonoraryUncle Bothari also frightened him.
