* DoubleMeaning: When Diana is worried about being less skilled than the other students at the yoga class that Matthew is taking her to, he replies that "It's a mixed class." While this is true, what he also means is that it is a mixture of daemons, witches and vampires, as well.

* 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!
