* LoveAtFirstPunch: [[spoiler: It's unclear exactly ''when'' Sethos developed his crush on Amelia, but it's quite probable he grew fixated on her after one of his henchmen knocked Ramses into a wall, causing her to subsequently go utterly berserk and stab him with her parasol.]]



* LoveMakesYouDumb: [[spoiler: When Sethos reveals his adoration for Amelia, he lists all the things he's done throughout the novel in order to try and win her regard. They are, to a one, silly, convoluted or both.]]



* VillainousCrush: [[spoiler: In ''Lion on the Sandbank'', Amelia is oblivious to the fact that the Master Criminal, aka Sethos, appears to be courting her. Not even when he sends her flowers. Emerson of course figures it out, and grows incredibly jealous and paranoid as a result.]]

* Nefret is "Nur Misur" ("Light of Egypt"), probably in tribute to the philanthropy she does. Her favorite topic is mummies, which chimes well with her medical degree. Her edge is a psychic link with Ramses that lets her know when he is in imminent danger; it also spills out into a general sympathy that lets her tame horses, dogs, and cats, feed sparrows from her hand at a cafe table, and may be another reason for her widespread popularity with the Egyptian poor.

* Emerson is "Father of Curses," earned by his short temper and talent with Arabic invective. His favorite topics are tombs and temples. His edge is sheer strength and even more endurance.

* Ramses is "Brother of Demons" (Of course, "Ramses" is already a nickname; his real name is "Walter.") His favorite topic is inscriptions and the study of the ancient Egyptian language. His edge is his extraordinarily sharp hearing and vision. "The Brother of Demons can hear a whisper across the Nile."

Over this time, she and her husband have founded a BadassFamily and QuirkyHousehold, the Emersons, that is the core of a bi-ethnic (English/Egyptian) example of TheClan. In addition to Peabody and Emerson, the Emerson family includes:

* HistoricalDomainCharacter: The Emersons have several friends who fit this class. Howard Carter, who found the tomb of Tutankhamun, appears a lot, and T. E. Lawrence (LawrenceOfArabia) shows up at least twice. Emerson has a particular dislike for fellow Egyptologist Flinders Petrie, possibly because Petrie is the RealLife model for Emerson and the fellow who in Real History developed many of the archaeological principles and techniques Amelia credits Emerson with devising.

* IResembleThatRemark: ""I never raise my voice," Emerson bellowed. A ghostly echo came rolling back from the depths of the tomb, as if the king's spirit were objecting to being awakened."
