* WhatIfTheBabyIsLikeMe: Downplayed; while Alexia is concerned about her baby turning out preternatural, it's not the prospect of the condition itself that bothers her, so much as the fact that preternaturals are repelled from each other. Which would be rather uncomfortable, to say the least.

Added DiffLines:

* AcquiredPoisonImmunity: {{Downplayed|Trope}} in that the substance is not strictly ''toxic'', but merely ''very unpleasant'', but one vampire overcomes the species' repulsion to citrus this way. [[spoiler:Lord Akeldama did this entirely for the purpose of putting lemon in his tea.]]

* HindenburgIncendiaryPrinciple: In ''Heartless'', various small blimps catch fire when [[{{Bifauxnen}} Madame Lefoux]] goes on a rampage with an octopus-like SteamPunk device to take [[HasTwoMommies her son]] back from the vampires who kidnapped him.

* TheKnightsTemplar: Apparently, the order was really into slaying supernatural creatures. [[spoiler:Alessandro Tarabotti in particular was a result of a breeding program set up by the Templars to make specialized hunters...which didn't exactly work.]]

* MustBeInvited: When the residence of the Westminster Hive is destroyed, Lord Akeldama refuses to invite the now-homeless vampires into his home because that act would mystically "sign over" his home to them. [[spoiler: However, he's willing to let Alexia make that mistake -- largely because it forced the Westminster Hive to relocate to Woolsey Castle outside of London.]] It's implied that this may not be the ''only'' way; when Countess Nasdasny is told that there is a new home for the Hive, her question is "who do we have to kill".

** All that is a matter of common knowledge at the start of the series; over the course of it, several more details are discovered. [[Preternaturals repel each other, almost with physical force. They're so rare that Alexia had never met another one until she was an adult so she just never had the chance to find out. Both effects work postmortem if the body is preserved, and age, such as mummification, increases both the anti-magic effect and the repellent effect. Also, water reduces the effect. Under normal conditions Alexia could turn a werewolf human by touching him through clothes, but she can hug a werewolf when in wolf form as long as both are swimming.

* OurVampiresAreDifferent: Vampires usually live in hives, centered around a queen who has the power to change new vampires. They are tended by drones, humans who serve in hopes of one day being changed into vampires themselves. Only a vampire queen can turn humans and make them drones and all female vampires are queens, which is why they are harder to make. Vampire queens also can't leave their home unless they're about to be killed, and have only a few hours to find another permanent home. Queen vampires have two sets of fangs, one for eating and one for transformation, and as she gets older her transformation fangs grow and her success rate of creating another female into a queen to act as her successor goes up. Rogues are male vampires that do not belong to any hive but can still have their own drones that they can have the local queen transform if their application is accepted. Both rouge and queen vampire have the ability to "swarm" if threatened, which severs their link to their territory either temporarily or permanently depending on the situation.
