* GenerationalMagicDecline: Implied to have been happening to the Llyn Imperial Family prior to their being overthrown. They were having trouble producing the next generation, and protagonist Tamaura was tellingly both a strong nexus of Orphic power and [[HeroicBastard born out of wedlock]]. Since Orphic magic is InTheBlood most of the noble Orphic families were also somewhat inbred.

* IgnorantOfTheCall: [[spoiler: Harris]] until he learns TheCallKnowsWhereHeLives



* IncestIsRelative: Just like in ''Franchise/HarryPotter'', the Orphic families married between each other in order to preserve their magic blood pure. It's implied that Tammy herself is distantly related to the Torstenn clan, as the last Empress look a lot like Ms. Thorne, nee Torstenn.

* VelvetRevolution[=/=]TheRevolutionWillNotBeVilified: [[spoiler:The Academist revolution didn't intend to kill all Orphics, just seal them with Master Gregoire's just created Great Seal. But after the Llyns were taken prisoner a failed rescue attempt convinced their guards that keeping them alive was too risky so they executed the whole royal family sans Tamaura (and possible Aliana too). The Academists, seeing they went too far, tried to paint the incident in history's pages as a NecessaryEvil deed.]]

* ChildOfTwoWorlds: [[spoiler: Harris can be considered this. Though we don't know who his father is just yet, we know that his mother was an Orphic High Priestess from Khala, and his father was from Abwerelle, where he grew up. Curiously enough, Rajani also claims that Harris himself is "a link between Khalan and Aberwellian magics". Though just how he is this has not yet been properly explained.]]

* CassandraTruth: No one was willing to listen to Harris about the lost Orphic Princess in the magical forest... or so it appears. Turns out at least one high level Acadamist was listening and laying his own plans.

* AristocratsAreEvil: Gregoire seems to be of this mindset when it came to the old Orphic class, more of a product of their society. He notably sees Tammy as an exception because she doesn't seem to have come from the same place.

* ExactWords: Phrasing is critical when one enters a contract with the spirits as the price [[CastFromLifeSpan is paid in life force]] and correlates directly with the benefit received. Expansive terms like "keep me safe" or "give me the power to protect everyone I love" have been rejected by the spirits because they simply cost more than any human could ever pay. Unfortunately since only the spirits can calculate the true price of any contract the humans are stuck bargaining at a disadvantage though the spirits do seem honor-bound to provide fair warning and one even refuses a contract it thinks would cost the human too much.
