* 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]]'']].

* GuileHero:
** Rubel, of course, is growing into one.
** Quinton, however, 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.

* ChickMagnet: Rubel is becoming one, as befits the mystique of becoming a Thief.



* FairyCompanion: Varkias is pretty much this to Rubel, apart from being a small winged demon rather than a fairy.
* FalseInnocenceTrick: In a {{flashback}}, Rubel and his friends fall victim to this.



* GambitRoulette: Quinton seems to rely a lot on this trope.

* GoodCostumeSwitch: [[spoiler:Soracia's]] ''epic'' HeelFaceTurn culminates with the cutting off of her [[spoiler: beribboned evil black cloak. It then forms up into a dummy shape of her and cries that it loves her]]. After that she wanders around in a fairly average cloak and skirt combo that still manages a certain amount of flair and swirl when she swings her longswords, but doesn't reek of black magic.
