* BlueAndOrangeMorality: The fairies to an extreme.

to:

* BlueAndOrangeMorality: The fairies to an extreme. It's noted more than once that light and dark creatures do not correspond to good and evil, no matter how much it seems that way. Even the demons are bound by their own honor code.



* RedPillBluePill

to:

* RedPillBluePill RedPillBluePill: Ignorance is its own kind of protection, and caretakers are very careful about who they let in on the secret for this reason. In the first book, Kendra and Seth have to solve riddles and then seek out the milk themselves.
* RetiredBadass: Dromadus, the only Dragon King to have ever stepped down. The rest of the dragons mock him from a distance and dismiss him as a coward, but none would dare challenge him or disturb his peace.

[[spoiler: The Sphinx quickly starts working with the Knights once Graulas and Nagi Luna take control of things.]]
** ''Dragonwatch'' also has [[spoiler: more than a few demons that wish to see the dragons thwarted, out of revenge if nothing else. Jubaya and Talizar are the first to appear, with Jubaya providing information to Kendra and Talizar offering to tutor Seth, and both are very honest about being entirely self-interested. The heroes don't take the offer in the first book, but it's implied they might later.

* NobleDemon: [[spoiler: Graulas. He makes Seth into a shadow charmer in ''Dragon Sanctuary.'' Unfortunately for Seth, he finds out in the next book that it was mere circumstances that truly kept Graulas' innately evil nature in check, not any genuine desire to restrain himself.]]

* NonIndicativeName: [[spoiler:The fairy queen is actually a unicorn.]] Justified in that it's meant to be a secret.

* NotNowKiddo: Thankfully averted. The adults are GenreSavvy enough to know that a creature that the underage can see but the adults can't is completely plausible on a magical preserve.

*ArtisticLicenseBiology: Cows, even magic ones, need to have calves to produce milk. However, the Sorensons' cow seems about ready to burst after less than a day without milking, and no calf in sight.

* WellIntentionedExtremist: [[spoiler: The Sphinx sees his intentions as good, but according to the Fairy Queen he's also driven by a lust for power and control.]]

to:

* WellIntentionedExtremist: [[spoiler: The Sphinx sees Sphinx...sort of. Maybe. At the very least he started out as this; born a slave on the Living Mirage preserve, he led a revolution against his intentions as good, but according cruel masters and vowed to create a world without slavery or prisons. He also believes that the fall of Zzyzx is an inevitability, and claims that he wishes to open it in the right way in order to minimize the destruction. However, the Fairy Queen he's also driven mentioned that he has been corrupted by a lust desire for power and control.power, so it's hard to say how much of his self-proclaimed motives are true.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ThisLooksLikeAJobForAquaman: {{Downplayed}} in Book 4. The heroes need to steal a unicorn horn protected by centaur guards, a maze of invisible walls, a mountain troll, and magic that afflicts a would-be thief with crippling guilt. And then Graulas turns Seth into a shadow charmer. Shadow charmers turn invisible in dim light, can see the invisible, can communicate with and easily befriend dark creatures, and are immune to magic that affects emotions. Granted, all of those are useful abilities that get used in many other contexts, but still...
