* TheWoobie: Bitty comes across as this from the beginning. Child of a physically abusive father whose abuse needs to be relived in ''Blood Vow'' when Havers has to break her bones ''again'' and reset them manually (without anesthesia) so she'll be able to walk after Transitioning, her mother dies when Bitty goes to visit her in Havers' clinic, lives in Marissa's Safe Place shelter, is malnourished to the point where she looks 9 years old (she's actually 13), and emotionally dead inside. [[spoiler: She got better thanks to Rhage and Mary formally adopting her.]]

* Reincarnation Romance: [[spoiler: During ''The Chosen,'' iAm looks at the resume of a Vampire from Detroit named Therese for his Italian restaurant. When she arrives for an interview, he nearly faints when he sees the spitting image of Selena standing in his doorway. Lassiter also arranges for Trez to visit iAm at the same time she's interviewing and Trez completely loses it when he sees Therese (or Tres, as she likes to be called). It's ambiguous whether this is a true reincarnation a la Darius/John Mathew, or is a mundane but damn scary coincidence.]]

** And also the transition to becoming a fully-fledged vampire.
** And the rare transformation from human to vampire.
** Also the transformation from human to lesser.

** And also the The transition to becoming a fully-fledged vampire.
vampire. The description makes it seem almost like a ''vastly'' accelerated growth spurt.
** And Humans with vampire heritage can have the rare transformation kick-started. It is not pleasant, going by Butch's experience.
** The
transformation from human to vampire.
** Also
lesser involves exsanguination, removal of the transformation from human to lesser.heart, and getting the blood of the Omega dumped into the body with a jolt of power. Not pretty.

* ImmortalProcreationClause: Vampires are only fertile once every decade, and pregnancy is very highly likely to result in miscarriage or death of the mother in childbirth. As Tohrment puts it, 'It's a goddamn ''shellan''-robber'.

** Butch and Marissa hit a very rough spot in ''Blood Kiss.'' Butch's Catholic upbringing drives him to shelter Marissa while he investigates the murder of a vampire that turned up at Safe Place, Marissa sees this sheltering as just another cage like the glymera tried to force her into. They work through it by [[TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOther talking, hugging it out, and going to a sex club.]]

** When he was alive, [[spoiler: Lash]] was only to happy to terrorize the weaker vampires in the race's boot camp, up to and including potentially raping John Matthew. When he was resurrected by the Omega, he gleefully leads the Lessers on a massive killing spree against the vampire civilians he knew and socialized with in his past life, takes Xhex as his own SexSlave and noisily complains that the Lessers who serve him have reduced him to shopping at Target for clothes and eating McDonald's for dinner.
