* BeautyEqualsGoodness: Darling is probably the simplest straight example of this, though Ky Sahra is a close runner-up until she gets a lot more pragmatic about things by the time of ''Water Sleeps''. After them, the most beautiful people in the series have done some seriously dark things or are just outright viciously evil. Soulcatcher intentionally invokes EvilIsSexy by dressing all in tight black leather and sorcerously enhancing her features because it distracts and unnerves people in combination with her general madness and VoiceOfTheLegion, as Willow Swan attests.


Added DiffLines:

* PoorCommunicationKills: A lot of the mess of ''The Books of the Glittering Stone'' could have been averted by [[spoiler:anyone actually checking the ancient histories and copies of the Company's first Annals in Taglios, instead of keeping secrets and planning betrayals driven by old fears from the (false) oral histories of the last time the Black Company was in the region]]. Everyone was being intentionally driven to paranoia, though.

** TheReveal that Stormshadow is actually [[spoiler: Stormbringer]] has to be articulated by one of the Company Brothers calling out her name, as her physical description was never provided earlier.

** While traveling with Croaker [[spoiler:to the White Rose's hideout in order to secretly assist with translating documents that bear the Dominator's true name]], The Lady mentions that she won't be able to cast any spells while under the influence of null. However, some spells that were cast on someone or something ''before'' entering the null, such as the transformation of one living being into another form, would remain in effect. Croaker uses the example of a frog; it may as well be applicable to [[spoiler: a dog or a man]], however.
