* ShooOutTheClowns: Quite surprisingly averted by Newel and Doren in book five. They stick around for the last battle, fight bravely, and, though their accomplishments are those of secondary characters, fight bravely and survive. Before the final battle, they do mention they know they are going to their probable deaths and would have ditched long ago if not for some pesky nobility that snuck into their characters. Yet they still come out with some great wingers even during all this--and while some of it is to help keep spirits up and the like, some of it is just them. Their battle cry is "for Frito-Lay" after all...

* VoluntaryShapeshifting: Dragons do this all the time, usually into human form. And Kendra and Seth shrink down to miniature size once. And the Eternal's guardians are [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot immortal sentient talking animals can instantly turn into any other animal of approximately the same mass and can only die through powerful magical means or if their charge is killed through the same]].



* VillainousVirtues: For all of his faults, Nero is honest. He might charge you an immense fee to have him use his seeing stone, and that fee will increase exponentially with every use, but you get what you pay for and he won't try to trick you with ExactWords or any other nonsense. Graulas bestowed his stone to him, and Nero is happy to lend him assistance out of gratitude.

* AffablyEvil: Torina in the fourth book.

* AffablyEvil: AffablyEvil:
** Nero may be a greedy brute, but he's always polite, in his own oily way, and he never takes action against the heroes. When Seth fails his climbing challenge, Nero makes it a point to save him from a great fall, rationalizing that having come as far as he did in the challenge Seth earned a victory.

Torina in the fourth book.



* KickTheSonOfABitch: Society member Christopher Vogel finds a bar of gold lying about and takes it with him. I was Nero's gold, which the Satyrs had stolen earlier, and an incredibly pissed Nero beats the crap out of him to take it back.
* KissingCousins: OK, so nothing ever ''actually'' comes of it, but throughout Book 2, Kendra harbors a bit of a PrecociousCrush on [[spoiler: Warren]], who is in fact her distant cousin.
