* BadassPrincess: Katara.



* NotAsYouKnowThem: Katara at the beginning of the first volume is very different from the WellIntentionedExtremist BadassPrincess she later becomes.

* GuileHero: Quinton, is the ''master'' of this trope, to the point that we only have the word of Soracia and hints of his impossible age to give any sign that he's a wizard at all and not just some eccentric yarn-spinner. He seems to operate entirely on talent, force of personality, and bizarre luck.

* ImpossibleThief: Rubel is on his way to becoming one of these when he grows up. [[spoiler:His uncle [=McGi=] has performed impossible feats such as retrieving a girls lost memories and intimidating the hell out of a dragon who ate entire cities]].
** A major theme of the setting is that by dedicating yourself to living the ideal of larger-than-life fairy-tale existence, whether it be a thief, a knight, a wizard, or whatever, you can become magical yourself. Rubel is an ImpossibleThief because he is a '''Thief''' (with a capital-T).

* WhiteHairedPrettyGirl: Locumire, though interestingly she fits into many tropes more commonly associated with [[WhiteHairedPrettyBoy White-Haired Pretty]] ''[[WhiteHairedPrettyBoy Boys]]''.

* DracoInLeatherPants: An InUniverse example: Soracia is the main villain of the first three volumes. Heath and Varkias think she's a CompleteMonster, but Rubel insists she's just a misunderstood [[TheWoobie Woobie]] who needs to be rescued from the ''real'' villains. [[spoiler:Turns out he was only half right; [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Soracia is perfectly capable of rescuing]] ''[[CrowningMomentOfAwesome herself]]'']].
