* The world of ''Literature/TheGodslayerChronicles'' by JamesClemens is built on this troupe. The nine humorals (bodily fluids) of the Gods have the power to grant Graces. The humorals are ''highly'' valuable and are willingly given and stockpiled in glass vials (natural materials, like wood stone or metal, will leech grace from the humoral... the process of turning sand to glass somehow negates this). Black markets for stolen humorals exist. The nine humorals are: ''Blood'' - Necessary for any other humoral grace to flow; ''Masculine Seed/Feminine Menses'' - Grants graces to living things; ''Sweat'' - Grants graces to inanimate objects; ''Tears'' - Increases the potency of other humorals; ''Saliva'' - Decreases the potency of other humorals; ''Phlegm'' - Allows graces to manifest outside physical objects; ''Yellow Bile (Piss)'' - Temporarily grants graces; ''Black Bile (Shit)'' - Nullifies graces.
