* AmputationStopsSpread: At the climax of ''The Ladies of Mandrigyn'', [[spoiler:Sun Wolf]] is attacked by a magical creature that burrows through people's eyes into their brains, and [[EyeScream tears his own eye out]] to save himself.



* KidnappedByTheCall: When Sheera tries to hire Sun Wolf, he refuses and proceeds to wonderfully explain his reasons in three points: 1) A conquered town wouldn't be able to gather so much gold to pay him. 2) He doesn't lead wars in winter and 3) He won't risks the lives of his men against Altiokis. Sheera resorts then to plan B: poison him and take him away by force.



* NotUsingTheZWord: Altiokis has a nasty habit of turning people into blind, slavering, mindlessly vicious freaks. The canon term for the process's victims is "nuuwa", and that's all that they're ever called.



* RefusalOfTheCall: When Sheera tries to hire Sun Wolf, he refuses and proceeds to wonderfully explain his reasons in three points: 1) A conquered town wouldn't be able to gather so much gold to pay him. 2) He doesn't lead wars in winter and 3) He won't risks the lives of his men against Altiokis.
