* BeautyBrainsandBrawn: I the last two books Kathy joins the group as a permanent member filling in the beauty part. Though she's described as being distinctly average looking she's certainly prettier than Fisk and Michael and has a tendency to be wearing unnecessarily fancy clothing since she's supposed to be attempting to court a Prince at the time.

** Maxwell counts too, but only in regards to Fisk and Michael. [[spoiler: They litterally save him and his family from a life of poverty only FIVE YEARS after he kicked Fisk out with the promise he'd provide for Fisk's sisters and how does he repay them? By kicking them out again. Even his offer to send Fisk to University was a thinly veiled attempt to get him out of town without looking like a dick...]] he failed in that regard.

** Fisk has shades of this as well when it comes to less... noble skills. He starts out as a burglar and eventually becomes a Con man out of preference, but we also see that he has skills in pickpocketing, forgery, cheating at cards, card sharping, knife fighting, even (according to Jack) rigging horse races.

* HealingHands: [[spoiler:Michael manages to make his magic cooperate with him while he's thinking clearly just in time to heal a fatal wound that Rupert receives.]]



* MagicIsMental: [[spoiler:[[InvertedTrope Inverted]]. According to academic theory, magic and intelligence are incapable of coexisting, explaining why it is only found naturally in animals and humans born with mental disabilities and/or with very young children, as well as why Michael's magic triggers when he's in a state of panic, but not when he tries to will it to work. Elaborated upon in ''Scholar's Plot'': the invocation has to be more ''natural'' as opposed to ''logical'', proven when Michael ends up turning invisible as opposed to enabling himself to breathe underwater the first time he tests this theory. His magic responded to his need to hide, but not his logically thinking he needs to breathe underwater in order to hide.]]

* WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway: [[spoiler:Considering he could already feel magic, being able to see it is only a slight step up. Even when Michael starts to seriously work magic, [[ThisLooksLikeAJobForAquaman the number of situations where it could come in handy are slim]]. It isn't until the third book that his magic really starts to look impressive. By book four he's begs to test the waters by using it to enhance his animal handling Gift in order to affect a human, but it's in book five--when he actually gets a plausible theory on ''how'' to control his magic--that it actually becomes useful in two separate occasions in the book: 1) by hiding him from an angry con who got busted by Fisk; 2) by creating a bubble of air to protect himself and Fisk from the fire destroying the old tower. The second time is when Michael actually makes the magic do what he wants, as it only really responds to the will of his heart (or primal instinct).]]

When Michael takes a little too much glee in how they handle Ceciel after capturing her, Fisk is extremely concerned.concerned.
** Fisk is normally looking out primarily for himself, and it's almost a OnceAnEpisode moment that the first thing Fisk would do when facing armed thugs is wait for an opportunity to flee. In ''Scholar's Plot'', Michael recalls this very fact, only when a thug makes a swing at Kathy, Fisk doesn't run--''he tackles the thug instead''. [[spoiler: Initially comes off as a bit of CharacterDevelopment for Fisk, who at the start of the book is beside himself at doing something selfless of his own volition. Except later, via a separate event, Fisk realizes that he's fallen for Kathy and that suddenly he has a whole group of people to watch out for, not just his own neck]].
