** InnocentFanserviceGirl: Grace, who initially didn't understand that nudity embarrasses people, or that shapeshifting can be {{Squick}}y to those unaccustomed to it. [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2008-05-19 She catches on eventually.]] One of the best (and funniest) examples takes place during her birthday party, [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2005-10-10 here.]]

It takes his siblings pointing out that "they thought you were hot!" to clue him in. (Cue squee.)

** SquishyWizard: Specifically averted. Two of the three wizards seen so far are also swordsmen (Abe also used shield and axe), for third it's unknown, but as a FBI operative he's likely to have at least basic handgun training. The rest of magic users in the comic practice SupernaturalMartialArts, and one that doesn't is at least pretty {{badass}} and is competent enough with melee weapons.

*** The current theory is that Elliot will acquire new female forms again and again until he really likes one of them -- then again, it was [[ChivalrousPervert Tedd]]'s idea. Between [[spoiler:flying around as a [[ChronicHeroSyndrome superhero]]''ine'']] and [[spoiler:ogling PerkyGoth form in a mirror]], he may have found this already.

** Immortals in general turn out to have this magically enforced. If an immortal vows, any attempt to break the vow will result in "a deafening bombardment of intrusive thoughts", and if they manage to actually break it the thoughts persist ''forever''. This was [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=1699 displayed]] by [[spoiler:Jerry, post-reincarnation]] and much later [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=2255 spelled out by Edward]].

** 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.
