* 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.]]

* BackFromTheDead: [[spoiler: In a way. Raphael One presumed-dead character 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.

* Telepathy: While the books have different kinds of telepaths, all get lumped into the category of ''velikaia'', at least in Volstov.

* HeterosexualLifePartners: Only one half of the Royston-Alcibiades friendship is actually heterosexual, but they are lifelong friends and confidants who trust one another with everything, except cooking decent food.

* SociopathicHero: ''Rook.''

* SociopathicHero: ''Rook.'''' Caius isn't as brutish, but still has a dubious conscience, based on his willingness to torture anyone who gives him even half an excuse.


Added DiffLines:

* TortureForFunAndInformation: Performed on Rook during his captivity in Ke-Han, and by Caius on whomever gives him an excuse.
