[[WMG: Rosto is from Fief Rasthhausak]]
* At one point, a character speculates that Rosto was once from the Scanran nobility. Fief Rasthhausak has been in decline for a while, so it stands to reason that an illegitimate son (Rosto's mother was an entertainer) might get quietly sent away once he was old enough so as not to be a strain on resources.

[[WMG: The Trebond line has bastard Conte blood.]]
* In ''Bloodhound'', it's noted that Sir Lionel is married to Prince Baird's eldest daughter - it's one reason he's a problem, because at some point Baird could "remember he's a father," as Lord Gershom puts it, and intervene on his son-in-law's behalf. But in ''Mastiff'' he's a bachelor, and when discussing heirs Beka says that he's childless. The best way to reconcile these is if Baird's daughters are illegitimate, because in terms of the succession this still makes him childless. A royal bastard could still marry into noble houses even in our own history - Trebond is also old enough to be in the Book of Gold, but we have no reason to think it's a particularly powerful or rich house - and if Baird's womanizing follows the pattern of his older brother's, her mother could well have been noble as well.

[[WMG: One of Alanna and George's children or grandchildren will show Beka's powers.]]
* It's more likely to be a grandchild - one assumes that Aly might have noted one of her siblings having such an unusual magic when thinking about her Sight, but given that the Trebond Gift kicked Sight from George into high gear for Aly (and Eleni's Gift from Farmer's bloodline could well have affected the areas where Thom II's Gift is best), it makes sense that all the magics gathering in that bloodline could trigger a return of Beka's power.

[[WMG: Bastards of noble birth in Tortall use the fief name as a surname.]]
* In the Provost's Dog series, Nestor Haryse is a bastard relative of Lord Gershom of Haryse, but for him Haryse is a surname. It makes sense that this could be a common pattern, like the real life Fitz- added to the name of a highborn family (or Fitzroy for a king's bastard). Commoners just use their mother's names, like Beka and her siblings, or her descendant George. Bastards are also referred to as cousins by noble relatives, whatever the actual connection. Nestor is Gershom's "cousin", but given that he is the son of a peasant mistress kept by Gershom's father, that would actually make Nestor Gershom's half-brother.

In ''Wild Magic'', everyone warms to her immediately. Everyone. Other than Onua, most of them find her amazing/brilliant/adorable within minutes despite not really knowing anything about her. Boys flirt with her, the royal family trusts her, even children love her. Her goddess blood subliminally forces those around her to like, if not love her. After all, if her Wild Magic can make a jerkass like PeachBlossom trust her, it could have ''some'' effect on already friendly humans.

* Some of the elder children of Haven/ New Hope decide they ''like'' bashing raider's heads, and want to follow in Kel's footstep, and join the riders. ( After all, they might be awesome, and times might be changing, but they were still commoners)

* In the Copper Isles, the naming scheme differs from Tortall--nobles are the ones with surnames and commoners don't have any. This applies to the raka as well, with the maiden name of Dove and Sarai's mother being Temaida. Other raka servants and/or conspirators are not mentioned as having surnames, just Ulasim, Ochobu, and Junai.

* Varice Kingsford. A book about a woman mage who wants to only use her powers for cooking, making things pretty, etc. and gets dragged into the evil of Ozorne's court would be a very interesting read. This troper loved Varice because she was a powerful woman and she was still a stereotypical woman, baking, sewing, making things pretty, and she still had a high rank in the court of an EvilOverlord.

If one of Aly&Nawat's children married one of Daine&Numair's, that's be one heck of a power combination. It could be hobby for him like breeding dogs. All this means that his true identity is [[{{Dune}} Bene Gesserit]].

* The three girls Kel met in ''Squire'' all survive Page training, and one ends up as Kel's squire. Whether or not all three girls become pages is unknown, but WordOfGod is that one of then ''does'' become Kel's squire.
