* BecomingTheMask: Early in ''Alta'', a Bedu points out to Kiron that he's still acting like the serf Vetch, and recommends this trope as a solution.

''Joust'' follows the story of a young boy named Vetch. He is a Altan, and a serf: someone lower than a slave who is tied to the land they work on under their master. His Tian master, Khefti the Fat, is quite cruel, and Vetch is the last member of his family on the land, taking all of Khefti's beatings. Vetch's luck changes when Ari, one of the Tian Dragon Jousters, appears one day and takes him to be dragon-boy for Kashet, the dragon Ari raised since hatching (and thus unique in the jousters' ranks).

* {{Foreshadowing}}: [[spoiler: In Joust, Haraket comments that Ari treats the awards, including the Gold of Honor, which he received from the Great King of Tia, as though they were "unsuitable presents from an inconvenient relative." In Sanctuary, it turns out that the Great King is, in fact, a relative of Ari's, as Ari is the bastard son of the King's brother.]]

* IllegalReligion: Averted. The Tians allow Altans in captured territory to continue to worship their own deities, to avoid the problems that would result from underground worship. The fact that the Tian and Altan pantheons are almost identical doesn't hurt, either.

Life in the dragon jousters' compound proves to be much more pleasant that slaving away in the fields, but Vetch's relationship with all the dragon jousters is tolerating at best, (though he likes the dragons,) as he sees them as a symbol of the Tian power that killed his father and put the rest of his family into serfdom. The one exception to this Ari, whom Vetch respects and even grows to liking.
