'''Havemercy''' is the creation of Jaida Jones and Danielle Bennett, two college students and LJ users who decided there were entirely not enough of the three above things in their lives, and set out to write a charming, exciting, funny [[SteamPunk steampunk]] fantasy. They've garnered a loyal fanbase pretty quickly, which likely has something to do with the fact that Ms. Jones is the coauthor of [[http://community.livejournal.com/shoebox_project/profile The Shoebox Project]], which... possibly has an even loyaler fanbase.

* {{Badass}}: Rook, Adamo and Caius spring particularly to mind.

* FanNickname: The fandom has fondly bestowed upon the authors the portmanteau name [=JaiDani=].



* OneOfUs: Both authors are quite fannish, and they interact fairly often with the LJ community (and it gets a mention in several of the books' acknowledgements.) Jaida Jones in particular, for her role in writing The Shoebox Project, an extremely popular fanfic.



* WordOfGay: Luvander, apparently.

* FourTemperamentEnsemble: Though they don't travel together, the four protagonists can definitely be seen as an example of this; Royston is phlegmatic, Rook is choleric, Thom is melancholic, and Hal is sanguine/supine.
** In Shadow Magic, Caius is sanguine, Alcibiades choleric, Mamoru melancholic/supin, and Kouje phlegmatic.

* AmbiguouslyGay: Caius Greylace and Balfour, both very feminine male characters whom we never see in relationships with women, although canon never explicitly rules it out or states that [[{{Asexuality}} they have homosexual relationships either]].
* BackFromTheDead: [[spoiler: In a way. Raphael returns near the end of ''Steelhands'', although he was never really dead in the first place.]]

* BadassGay: Royston, for his ability to blow things up with his mind, and Hal, who, despite being a twenty-year-old from the sticks, figures out the cause of the magicians' plague for them.



* CampGay: Toverre. He constantly insists on dressing Laure, although part of this may also stem from his rather OCD tendencies.

** Royston, too, although he combines this with a healthy dose of [[BadassGay badassery]]. He spends forever picking out his wardrobe in the morning, is so vain that he dreads being seen in public with a cold, and buys theater season tickets.

* AgentPeacock: Royston spends forever picking out his clothes in the morning, is embarrassed to be seen with a red nose, and [[AllGaysLoveTheater loves theater]], not to mention the open gayness. He can also [[StuffBlowingUp blow stuff up]] by thinking about it. Caius is another example: Dresses in feminized versions of male clothing, primps and preens, and likes fluttering about with a fan... which happens to hold retractable knives in the creases. That's the ''least'' dangerous he gets.
