* BilingualBonus: The monks begin to call Vol'jin "Vol'''jian''" as he starts to train with them. Chen states that the word "jian" has many meanings, mostly about greatness. It started out towards Vol'jin's blunders in his training, but would come to mean more.

* HealingFactor: Somewhat downplayed; Vol'jin has one but it still takes a fairly long time to recover from the wounds that almost killed him.

* HealingFactor: Somewhat downplayed; Vol'jin has one but it still takes a fairly long time to recover from the wounds that almost killed him. This is actually something of a plot point, as the book seems to imply the trolls' regeneration ability is tied to their worship of the Loa, their gods. [[spoiler: Vol'jin begins to realize he has been doubting himself and not thinking of himself as a true troll, and once he gets past this, his wounds heal faster.]]
