** Though not fatal, Norris, Rowan, Zeel and Shaaran all sacrificed something to continue their quest. Zeel gave up her yellow kite, Shaaran her precious silks, Norris attempted to convince the others to leave him behind so that he wouldn't become a burden to them and slow them down, and Rowan chose to give up his friendship with Norris, Zeel and Shaaran so that they would not risk their lives and possibly die when they accompanied him on the final leg of the journey to defeat the Ice Creepers.
** Rowan is almost forced to become Keeper of the Crystal himself after Doss turns out to have been a Zebak-controlled traitor, and though he is very reluctant he is willing to make the sacrifice if it means preventing a Zebak invasion from occurring. Luckily, he realises just in time that the Crystal is more powerful than any Zebak magic trick, meaning that no Keeper of the Crystal would ever betray Maris to the Zebak, willingly or not.

Zeel gave up her yellow kite, Shaaran her precious silks, Norris attempted to convince the others to leave him behind so that he wouldn't become a burden to them and slow them down, and Rowan chose to give up his friendship with Norris, Zeel and Shaaran so that they would not risk their lives and possibly die when they accompanied him on the final leg of the journey to defeat the Ice Creepers.
** Rowan is almost forced to become Keeper of the Crystal himself in the third book after Doss turns out to have been a Zebak-controlled traitor, and though he is very reluctant he is willing to make the sacrifice if it means preventing a Zebak invasion from occurring. Luckily, he realises just in time that the Crystal is more powerful than any Zebak magic trick, meaning that no Keeper of the Crystal would ever betray Maris to the Zebak, willingly or not. not, thus eliminating the threat Doss poses to the Maris people.



** Shaaran can be said to have gone through this, as well. She starts off as a girl who is afraid of the ''bukshah'' and known for weeping often and having a soft heart, but in the end proves to be as determined and courageous as most of Rin, and does not falter even once during their final quest. When Rowan, Zeel and Norris decide to sacrifice themselves as they believe Sheba's riddle asks it of them, Shaaran vehemently tells them that this cannot be what the riddle had in mind, as she cannot believe that the Mountain would want others to die so that its hunger can be sated. [[spoiler: She was right.]] It is ''Shaaran'' who leads Rowan to the true meaning of the final riddle in the quest.
