* PrematurelyGreyHaired: A couple of these in the ''Literature/{{Deryni}}'' works:
** The architect Rimmell in ''Deryni Checkmate'' had white hair since a childhood encounter with an old woman popularly supposed to be a Deryni witch. Some unknown magic of hers was blamed for the overnight change in hair colour.
** Judhael in ''The Bishop's Heir'' and ''The King's Justice'' is in his late thirties, yet his hair is grey-white. Unlike Rimmell, his hair colour is not blamed on magic from a Deryni.

* DivineRightOfKIngs: King Kelson Haldane very specifically distinguishes his "Haldane" powers from those of ordinary Deryni and associates them with his right to rule. He's quite explicit about this when testifying before Archbishop Cardiel in the matter of Duncan [=McLain's=] marriage.

** Kelson's heir, born in the year 1130 (according to the ''Codex''), is christened Javan Uthyr Richard Urien Haldane; the prince's first name is that of the ill-fated King Javan Haldane, King Cinhil's second surviving son (and the protagonist of ''King Javan's Year''), and his third name honours Kelson's great uncle and Araxie's father, Prince Richard Haldane Duke of Carthmoor.

And is it coincidence that his other two names are those of Haldane Kings with Deryni mothers?

*** In ''The King's Justice'', Arilan finds Jehana guilt-stricken after she warned Nigel of an assassination plot, knowledge she acquired thanks to her powers. First he tries to teach her through a couple of parables that she had an affirmative duty to reveal what she had learned, and when she retorts that he doesn't understand, he displays his Deryni aura to show her that he actually does.

** Deryni must know the signatures of both Portals (to ensure they end up where they intended to go and can safely return). A highly skilled Deryni ''could'' give another Deryni a sufficiently accurate impression of a Portal's signature for the recipient to able to use it, but most Deryni read Portal signatures directly for themselves.

* HeroicAmbidexterity: Alaric Morgan is noted as training himself to fight with either hand, and often wields a sword in his right hand and a stiletto in his left. Morgan also advocates such training to his king Brion Haldane, when the king had an expressed preference for having all his pages and squires train to be right-handed. Morgan sensibly observed that fighters lacking training with their left hands would be defenseless if their left hands or arms became injured.
