* IAmXSonOfY: Chosen surnames are their parents' first names put together. For example, Tal's parents are named Graile and Rerem, thus he has the surname Graile-Rerem.

** Jarek, a berserker Sword Thane, who was once drenched in Norworm blood, giving him blue and NighInvulnerable skin. {{Subverted}}: after his companion Kirr dies, he is unable to find the will to live when fighting a giant robotic bug. The fury never came.

* VillainBall: If Sharrakor had just let Tal have a Sunstone he would have won because Tal would never have had to do anything that he did to save his family and in turn the world. It's never indicated ''why'' keeping Tal's mother sick (the wholes reason Tal begins his quest) is so important to Shushin (and therefore Sharrakor) in any way beyond being evil.

** This nicely sums up Milla and Tals relationship. They will work together and even risk their lives to save each other out of a strange mix of pride, necessity and basic moral decency, but Milla actively wants to kill Tal for a good part of the series, and even Tal wants to be rid of Milla as fast as he possibly can. This calms down towards something resembling a Hero-Lancer relationship towards the end, as the two finally mature and come to an understanding with one another. Even by the end, though, there is still a certain frostiness between the two protagonists.

** Tal; he's just a kid with no real knowledge of what's going on a vague quest to save his family. He is blocked every turn by powerful adults and their cronies, falls thousands of feet onto a tundra he has no idea how to survive in, is forced to make a pact with a girl who really wants to kill him, is captured multiple times, beaten within an inch of his life several times, thinks he killed what few allies he has, has his shoulder dislocated a few times, finds out there is no BigGood, is poisoned a few times, and in general never has a real chance to rest or eat for about a few months. He never gives up; he just keeps on moving and fighting.

* NiceJobFixingItVillain: The only reason [[spoiler: Sharrakor]] even has to contend with Tal as an enemy is because Shushin [[spoiler: under Sharrakor's control]] was a dick to him and prevented him from getting a primary sunstone for no discernible reason.

* CharacterDevelopment: Plenty for all the main characters. Tal learns humility and discipline; Milla learns how to think through her problems and make plans rather than charge around blindly; and Crow learns to channel his anger towards helping people and not just hate all Chosen indescriminately.
