** Ironically, half-immortals ([[OurElvesAreBetter elves]]) largely have the advantage over true immortals. Since their power is not constantly increasing like their parents', they don't have to worry about resetting, but get ageless immortality and powerful magic. The only downside is that they are bound by similar rules as the immortals, meaning that they can only interfere directly when a situation involves magic, or to defend themselves and others.

The only downside is that downsides are that, unlike their Immortal parents, they are unable to have children; and they are bound by similar rules as the immortals, meaning that they can only interfere directly when a situation involves magic, or to defend themselves and others.

** As it turns out, [[spoiler: Diane and Susan are twin sisters. No word yet if they're related to Raven, but it's certainly plausible.]]

** As it turns out, [[spoiler: Diane and Susan are twin sisters. not twins, but they may be half-sisters. No word yet if they're related to Raven, but it's certainly plausible.Raven; if they are it would have to be many generations back, as any sibling on his mother's side would be as unable to have children as Adrian is.]]

* HighSchool: Two of them of the cross-town rivalry variety, complete with uniforms, bizarre teachers, odd mascots, and most of the other associated tropes. Half the cast attends Moperville North and the other half goes to Moperville South.
* HisNameReallyIsBarkeep: Sort of. The stereotypical German scientist's real name is quickly revealed as Dr. Germahn.

* TheForceIsStrongWithThisOne: [[spoiler:Adrian Raven]] [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2009-12-12 admitted]] having ability to measure magical power without devices, which all but confirms a common [[WMG/ElGoonishShive wild guess]] on who [[spoiler:his "random favourites"]] are. Later was explained he can sense magic from people...through his ears. Smell, precisely. Don't ask.

Added DiffLines:

* LoopholeAbuse: The immortal contract that restricts them to "empowering and guiding" has one of the biggest loopholes in the universe -- [[spoiler:it's enforced ''automatically'', and only if the violator breaks it ''on purpose''. If they can use ExactWords to convince ''themself'' that they're ''technically'' abiding by the contract, they can do whatever they want.]] Unsurprisingly, Pandora exploits this, to [[spoiler:cause the energy clog on the grounds that it's "empowering" all of Moperville.]]
