* OlderIsBetter: Explicitely subverted. As Zorian learns upon request, lost magic was lost, either because it relies on nowadays unavailable or unethical requirements or was simply unpractical

* CynicalMentor: Professor Xvim has impossibly high standards he expects Zorian to live up to immediately. ''Everyone'' hates him. [[spoiler:It later becomes apparent that he spends one month putting all his new apprentices through hell to break down what he sees as arrogance and see where they most desperately need instruction. Even when he relaxes somewhat, he's still a ridiculously difficult teacher.]][[spoiler:As expected of an Archmage who specialises in defensive applications of unstructured magic.]]

** Among Zorian's tricks is [[spoiler:picking mechanical locks]] by sensing and moving [[spoiler:the tumblers]] with his mana.
** Being a skilled psychic also allows nifty things like photographic memory, storing entire books as mental packets, and in extreme cases, even shaping a part of one's mind into a magical calculator.

* MeltingPotNomenclature: we have Zorian Kazinski, Zack Noveda, Xvim Chao, Akoja Stroze, Tinami Aope and many, many more. We also have places named Cyoria and Knyazov Dveri (Knyaz' Doors) in one country and not too far from each other. Justified, as country was founded by refugees/conquerors from another continent.

'''[[http://www.fictionpress.com/s/2961893/1/Mother-of-Learning Mother of Learning]]''' by nobody103 begins with fifteen-year-old Zorian Kazinski, a studious, solitary young man, waking on the morning he is to catch the train to his third year of training at Cyoria's Royal Academy of Magical Arts. A man with no idea that in a month's time, he would find himself embroiled in circumstances far beyond the capacity of any fifteen-year-old mage-in-training to deal with ... and then [[GroundhogDayLoop find himself once again waking on the morning he is to catch the train to begin his third year at Cyoria]].
