* InterspeciesRomance: [[spoiler:Vesper and Ysabelle]]
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: While everything the Starwife does is for a good reason, she initially comes across as rude and cruel. This probably has something to do with the fact that being a [[BrokenBird Broken Bird]] is an actual ''requirement'' for the job, as Ninnia states in the prequel ''The Oaken Throne''.

* InterspeciesRomance: [[spoiler:Vesper At least two examples come to mind:
** In ''The Oaken Throne'', Ysabelle (female black squirrel)
and Ysabelle]]
Vesper (male bat) become increasingly close over the course of their struggles together. In the book's finale, Vesper suggests that they run away together and get married. [[spoiler:Ysabelle initially turns him down, insisting that her duty is to become the new Starwife... but realizes that she doesn't want to, and tries to come back to him, only to find he has been murdered by the ghost of one of their enemies.]]
** In ''Thomas'', a downplayed case is the obvious affection of Zenna, the dark mermouse who favors the cold northern waters, for Woodget, the male field mouse who defends her from the mockery of her fairer sisters. The relationship never goes anywhere deep. [[spoiler:But it is revealed in the epilogue to have led Zenna to save Woodget's life when a {{Mind Rape}}d Thomas throws him into a river to drown.]]

* OneSteveLimit: Averted. There are two characters with the name William. These are William "Twit" Scuttle the fieldmouse and William Godwin the human boy. They're from different time periods and they don't appear in the same book, however. Also, the Starwife in the original trilogy was known as Audrey before she took up the title, just like the mouse protagonist. The latter is never told of that fact, though, and the reader is only made aware of it [[spoiler:right before the Starwife dies]].
