* FamedInStory: Between the number of malices he has slain and the famous Battle of Wolf Ridge, Dag is a near-legend among many Lakewalkers. But few Lakewalkers connect the scruffy, one-handed old patroller with the latter legend.
* FantasticRacism: Across the board. Lakewalkers tend to be more [[CantArgueWithElves contemptuous]], but [[{{Muggles}} Farmers]] balance it out with bouts of superstition-born [[BurnTheWitch violence]]. We, the audience find out that Dag is even more famous under his married name of Dag Wolverine (and Dag is even more annoyed by that).

* GutFeeling In ''Horizon'', Dag can't shake the feeling that there was something wrong with their encounter with a malice that close to molting. [[spoiler: He realizes too late that the first malice was fleeing from a second, more powerful malice]]



* LovingAShadow: In ''Horizon'', one of the young patrollers becomes infatuated with Dag. Or rather "Dag Wolverine" (the hero of Wolf Ridge). not "Dag Bluefield, nee Redwing" (The veteran patroller, turned married medicine maker apprentice).

* ToBeLawfulOrBeGood: In ''Horison'', Dag risks his place in a southern Lakewalker camp - one with a medicine maker mentor who has the same abilities as Dag and can teach Dag more than he ever dreamed of - to save a Farmer boy from Lockjaw. In the end, It's the camp Patrol Captain, not the mentor, that decides Dag's fate. [[spoiler: He bans Dag from New Moon Cutoff when Dag pushes back on his refusal to deal with farmers - not helped by Dag pointing out where New Moon Cutoff falls far short of traditional Lakewalker doctrine.]]

* FamedInStory: Dag is famous in the Lakewalker world as one of the heroes of the Battle of Wolf Ridge. Dag is doubly pissed at this because A) it seemed to ignore that he wasn't the only survivor of that battle and B) took no notice of the lives lost that day [[spoiler:including Dag's fist wife and most of his patrol.]]

* HonorBeforeReason: The reason the Lakewalkers don't take on Farmers to handle tasks in their camps that don't require groundsense to accomplish. They don't want to become defacto lords over Farmers, so won't even entertain scenario that could theoretically lead to Lakewalker Rule.

* ButWeUsedACondom: The rhythm method is far more reliable when one party can literally see when his partner is most fertile. Unless that party gets caught up in the moment, as Dag was in ''Passages''

* {{Polyamory}}: A rare example of a woman married to two husbands. It's not really accepted practice among Lakewalkers, but they have no actual law against it, and the three are happy together, so the rest of the clan just kind of adjusted to it.
