** Well, Sethra is a vampire after all. But the fact that nobody ''noticed'' that she died for a few thousand years is rather telling.

* MosesInTheBullrushes: The prequels reveal that Morrolan occupied this role, being raised as an Easterner and not discovering his true identity until some time later. There was a rather hilarious scene in which Teldra has trouble keeping a straight face while explaining his species to him in ''The Paths of the Dead.''

* GetOnWithItAlready: Paarfi sometimes spends an entire paragraph explaining a literary technique he is about to use, or assuring the reader that he's not going to waste any words getting right down to the point. This tends to be [[HypocriticalHumor highly amusing]] in the same way as [[{{Hamlet}} Polonius's "brevity is the soul of wit"]] speech.

** As an adolescent, Vlad became a BullyHunter as payback for how Orca kids used to beat him up. Teen Vlad would walk around acting cocky to goad Orca youths into "teaching the Easterner a lesson", then gleefully kick the living crap out of them.

Added DiffLines:

* PronounTrouble: The dominant Dragaeran language has "gya" as a gender-inclusive pronoun for "person of unspecified sex". The lack of similar terminology in English forces the person who translates Paarfi's works to use "he" instead: a liberty for which the Hawklord chews the translator out, when he's told about it.

* StarfishAliens: The Jenoine, whose worldview is so unfamiliar that they don't even understand the concept of "place" outside of mathematics.

* TrademarkFavoriteFood: While Vlad is too much the gourmand to limit himself to just ''one'' favorite dish, he does prefer kethna-stuffed hot sweet rolls as his favorite ''breakfast''. With klava. Lots of klava.

** Even more true of [[spoiler: Zivra, although the foster parents who raised her in secrecy until she could claim her Phoenix heritage weren't exactly poor.]]

* BuffySpeak: Vlad engages in this occasionally. From ''Hawk'':
-->'''Vlad:''' "But, won't the Organization come down on them like, I don't know, like something that comes down on things?"
