* ShamelessFanserviceGirl: As a long-time shape-shifter, Mercy doesn't mind being seen nude by those who are familiar with shapechangers, but makes a conscious effort to keep herself covered in front of those who might misinterpret her casual nudity as casual sexuality. (Except for [[ContemptibleCover those covers]]. Seriously, standing around in a lacy black bra holding a wrench? What the hell?)

'''Mercy:''' I jerked down my jeans and underwear so I was naked on the dark sidewalk. Anyone looking out their window or driving by would get a show. I didn't care. Being a shapeshifter had gotten me over modesty by the time I was old enough to know what the word meant. That didn't mean I was comfortable running
around naked in front of everyone I knew. Once upon a lacy black bra holding time, Stefan had kind of had a wrench? What thing for me. I usually avoided being naked in front of him just like you don't hold out a slab of meat in front of a lion while planning on keeping the hell?)food to yourself.

* MsFanservice: While the covers may exaggerate her a bit, Mercy herself fits this. The number of times she's been seen naked or the times she had to strip off her clothes are endless. There have also been times Mercy is seen wearing only her underwear.

to:

\n* MrFanservice: Adam fits this. Mercy loves to remind the reader of his good looks. Thanks to being a company owner, he's been seen many times wearing nice and fancy suits. Thanks to being a werewolf, he's been seen naked as well.

There have also been times Mercy is seen wearing only her underwear. Sometimes she will wear nice dresses, usually on dates with Adam. Though she constantly denies that she's beautiful, it's somewhat implied the other characters think the opposite. She was even considered eye candy by a television crew trying to film her and the pack in Silver Bourne.

A series of fantasy novels by Creator/PatriciaBriggs set in the Tri-Cities in Washington State.

* HolyBurnsEvil: Any religious symbol (crucifixes, the Star of David...) up to and including Mercy's lamb necklace (representing "The Lamb of God," and not a regular sheep) can hold off a vampire or some of the nastier Fae, assuming the wielder truly believes in their chosen faith. Mercy is able to inflict a temporary burn on a vampire and make her sheep glow with the power of her faith when necessary.



* PostModernMagik: Any holy symbol can affect a vampire, so long as the wielder believes in it. Mercy uses a lamb (as in "The Lamb of God") due to a distaste for crosses (her first encounter with one as a child was an upclose and personal with a full-sized crucifix, complete with dying savior painted in color). Otherwise, mostly averted.
* RapeAsDrama: A villain with mind-control magic is not a good thing. Thankfully, treated with the utmost tact and realism.

** Bran (and likely most other werewolves) consider turning someone into a werewolf against their will (what happened to Adam, Anna, David Christiansen, and Mac from ''Moon Called'') to be a form of rape.



* TooDumbToLive: Said almost word for word in River Marked about some fey who tried to kill Mercy in front of Adam. Their deaths were officially listed as "suicide by werewolf."

* TheUnmasquedWorld: Mostly. Faeries came out about 20 years before the start of the story, making it sort of an AlternateHistory, although they are being far from open with the general public about exactly how much their magic can do. Werewolves come out during the events of the series, and they too are working hard on public relations and spin control. Vampires are still considered to be a myth, but a lot of {{Muggle}} characters have found out or are starting to suspect, and some characters are wondering how and whether vampires could come out.
