** In ''Bound'' we meet a Force/Light hybrid mage called Lightbringer who can turn light into solid objects. [[GreenLantern What does this remind you of?]]

* BelligerentSexualTension: Luna and Variam.



* DirtyCoward: A space mage called Symmaris in ''Burned'', who is terrified of stepping into Alex' store for fear of him murdering her, but she has no qualms [[spoiler:gating waves upon waves of gunmen into his home to kill him in his sleep.]]



* EveryoneCanSeeIt: Everyone knows Alex is interested in Anne, including her. He CannotSpitItOut though.
* FightsLikeANormal: Richard Drakh never shows anyone what magic he can use. Some speculate death or charm magic, Alex has his money on him being a Diviner, but nobody knows. He never has to fall back on them because the same focus items Alex uses and some ImprobableAimingSkills with a handgun are all he needs to be one of the deadliest people in the series.



* HeroicBSOD: Luna has one after the events of ''Burned''



** Deleo means "I delete" in Latin. She's a Water mage who specializes in disintegration spells.

** In general, battle magic runs on this. As Alex explains, 90% of a fight between mages is about building shields, as one solid blow is usually all it takes to kill the other guy.

* The "Ask Luna" FAQ has revealed that there was also a conflict called the Coldbringer War that occurred in the 1960's which was some type of conflict involving the mage councils of several different nations. Luna doesn't know what happened, and her attempts to find out by asking people who would have been alive at the time have so far been rebuffed.

** ''Bound'' also gives us Zilean and Lightbringer, a duo of black ops men for the Crusaders who specialize in horrific TorturePorn thinly disguised as JackBauerInterrogationTechnique. [[spoiler:Richard ends up [[ExploitedTrope exploiting]] this by putting a recently tortured Anne in the same room with her two torturers and a bound Jinn so that she ends up making a DealWithTheDevil out of sheer hatred for those two]]. Doesn't change the fact that seeing [[spoiler:their demise]] is immensely satisfying.

* ShoutOut: One to Literature/TheDresdenFiles. In the first book Alex mentions he's heard of a wizard who lives in Chicago and advertises in the phone book, but dismisses it as a rumor. Hidden also has one to {{House}}.
-->'''Luna:''' Maybe it's Lupus.
-->'''Variam''' It's never Lupus.
** One of the "Ask Luna" blog posts says that Alex has resisted Luna's attempts to name the Blink Fox "[[Vulpix{{Pokemon}}]]"
