* Cal's and Niko's mother from the ''Literature/CalLeandros'' series was an alcoholic. Sophia Leandros would go as far as throwing empty bottles at Cal when he was a kid and ranting at him about how much of a monster he is, even though it was ''her'' who sold her... reproductive ability to an Auphe for a pot of gold, which she quickly spent on more alcohol. At least on one occasion she also stole Niko's college money. While she burned to death prior to the first book in the series, the experience of growing up with Sophia as a mother teaches even resident bad boy Cal to never drink more than one beer as he believes to have inherited his mother's penchant for alcoholism.
