* HumanResources: Necromancers use deceased humans as weapons, not merely as zombies (or 'Hands') but also binding their spirits in other ways, such as splintering them to put in Gore Crows, or creating a Mordicant out of bog-clay and human blood and a Dead spirit as a guiding force.

* BigBad: Varies based on book or storyline:
** For ''Sabriel'', [[OurLichesAreDifferent Kerrigor]] is the ultimate driving force behind the hordes of Dead threatening the Kingdom, as well as being responsible for whittling down the Abhorsen line over the centuries [[spoiler: and for overthrowing the royal family, of which he is a renegade prince]].
** For ''Lirael'' and ''Abhorsen'', [[EvilSorcerer Hedge]] is the controlling force behind the rising threat of the Dead and Free Magic [[spoiler: but he's ultimately revealed as a proxy for the true enemy - Orannis the Destroyer, the Ninth Bright Shiner]].
** ''Clariel'' opts for more of a BigBadEnsemble, with no single person responsible for the troubles facing the Kingdom, but many who have their hands in it - most obviously, [[CorruptPolitician Guildmaster Kilp]], [[OurDemonsAreDifferent Aziminil]], and [[spoiler: Mogget]].

* Belatiel in Clariel comes back to find the Abhorsen's house in chaos. He calls for a sword and a set of bells and then all of the sendings slowly bow to him, acknowledging him as the new Abhorsen.
