* CompellingVoice: A Shanir power. All Lords can compel their bound followers, but Jame proves able to command even Lords and powerful Shanir Highborn, as does Torisen. In his case, as Highlord, all the Kencyr are his bound followers. Commands can cause permanent effects, or they can "break" the person commanded if the command is degrading or dishonable enough.
** In Bound In Blood, Gorbel managed to not only compel another Highborn, but the struggle caused the command to be permanent--the poor victim continuously tried to stand on his head from then on, unless he was physically restrained.

The master thief she's apprenticed to in the first book believes she's a boy the whole time -- '''even when she strips naked to the waist in front of him.''' He's an old man with [[BlindMistake very poor sight]], but still.

** In Bound In Blood, Gorbel managed to not only compel another Highborn, but the struggle caused the command to be permanent -- the poor victim continuously tried to stand on his head from then on, unless he was physically restrained.
** Jame does it twice, in the same book, to two different people: she tells the Randir Tempter to "Never touch me again!" and the woman is physically unable to touch her from then on [[spoiler:even when Rawneth is riding her and has control of her body]]; and when she's told by a Highborn Lord to give Brier a command that she knows full well would break her (ostensibly as a training exercise), she snaps at the Lord, "Back off!" He does -- literally. Right out of a third-story window. As is the case with Gorbel's victim, it's permanent: he continues to back up unless he's physically restrained.
* ConflictingLoyalty -- so many; after all, this is what "honor's paradox" is all about. Jame and Torisen especially seem to cause this a lot, because they are so personable as to sway many whose loyalty is to lords opposed to the Knorth. The Randir are also torn by this -- see EnemyCivilWar below.

The doings of nations, the fulfilling of ancient prophecies, gods walking the earth (or at least the avatars of them), the possible last great battle between order and chaos -- it's all here.

* InvulnerableHorses -- very much averted here, especially in the mounted combat at the end of ''Honor's Paradox''; Death's-head finds attacking the opposing horses more productive than the riders; they scare more easily and provide bigger targets. Several die, almost all the others are wounded.
