** BiggerBad: The never confronted Void, which is TheManBehindTheMan to each book's BigBad (though even then, it only seems to have been directly controlling Gask).

The books were retconned into the backstory of Brooks' ongoing {{Shannara}} series (see ''TheGenesisOfShannara'' for details). One of the author's few ventures outside the world of High Fantasy, ''Literature/TheWordAndTheVoid'' paints a disturbing image of a world caught up in an ongoing war that it isn't even aware of. Highly recommended.

The character sheet for this series, and the ''{{Shannara}}'' books can be found [[Characters/{{Shannara}} here]]

Several years later, in ''A Knight of the Word'', John Ross, following a personal tragedy, has renounced his position as a Knight, and is now working for a mundane charity. Concerned that the demons will attempt to turn him, O'olish Amaneh recruits Nest to do for John what John did for her, charging her with saving the fallen Knight before it is too late. Unbekownst to John though, one of the demons is already closing in.

* AlwaysChaoticEvil: Demons. The feeders are a variation, since they're evil but neccessary, while the demons are aberrations in every sense of the word.

* DownOnTheFarm: Hopewell is the cynical version of this, being a dried up, poor midwestern town with no future, and residents whose morals are slowly decaying at best. The steel mill is the only source of income, and farming just doesn't pay like it used to. The town slogan of "We're Growing Your Way" is a bad joke at best.
