* LiminalBeing: Diana Bishop. It turns out that Diana Bishop is a being of opposites in several ways -- thanks to Vanishing Twin Syndrome, she's a genetic chimera with DNA of her unborn twin brother. She then saves Matthew's life by giving him some of her blood, and patches of her body turn cold, like a vampire's. In the second book, it turns out she is a weaver (capable of [[JackOfAllTrades using all paths of witchcraft, but never mastering them]]), with an affinity for fire and water, and capable of standing between the realms of life and death, and past and future. [[spoiler: In the third book, it's revealed that weavers themselves are the result of daemon and witch DNA mingling -- and Diana merges with the Book of Life, to become a book and a woman, the history of the four races and the hope for their future.]] Phew!

* TomeOfEldritchLore: [[spoiler: Ashmole 782. To what extent remains to be seen... It seemed like a standard MacGuffin book that has the history, secrets, and future of witches, daemons, vampires, and humans -- until in ''Shadow of Night'' it was revealed that the book is made from flayed human skin.]]

* MacGuffin: Ashmole 762, a book which all three species of creatures want to get their hands on, to halt [[TheMagicGoesAway the magic going away]]. (Based on a real life alchemical manuscript, which really has been missing for a hundred years.)
