** Firestone. Despite being given maybe three mentions throughout the Grand Master books, he is implied to be NumberTwo to Lone Wolf himself, in charge of leading the Monastery and keeping things running while Lone Wolf is on his adventures. Many fans like to think that he is the Grandmaster having his own missions in the New Order series.

** Regardless of the positives of having the Moonstone around, such astounding good fortune paints a huge target on them for the minions of evil and catching said minions trying to steal it was what made up the good guys' minds that they couldn't keep it. Lone Wolf knows firsthand how dangerous the Moonstone was in the hands of Naar, and that they probably wouldn't be able to steal it back from him a second time.

Lone Wolf knows firsthand how dangerous the Moonstone was in the hands of Naar, Naar since it completely destroys the balance of power between him and the good gods, and that they probably wouldn't be able to steal it back from him a second time.

** In Book 11, a bunch of ghostly beings first scare Lone Wolf with visions of every enemy he's ever faced, then they show him visions of his family and every friend he's ever made. All of these people helped shape his destiny. Afterwards, Kai himself arrives to give him encouragement and then teleport him to his destination.

Added DiffLines:

* FamilyUnfriendlyAesop: The books don't shy away from showing how much a medieval world [[TheDungAges can suck]], such as with a mention of infant mortality rates. Yet any attempt to ''fix'' things is shown to be inherently misguided; the Moonstone eliminates the scourge of disease and infant mortality, ''and this is presented as a bad thing'', the Shianti were told to keep their paws off of humanity even though they were just being helpful, and the one Shianti who disobeyed this rule ended up being driven insane when his magic Sunstone exploded because mere mortals meddled with it.

** In Book 18, Lone Wolf notices a crowd gathered around a faith healer. The angry mob is ready to attack him for having no progress in fixing a woman's headache. When Lone Wolf realizes that the man has no powers, but genuinely wants to help people, he discreetly uses his own powers to cure the woman, turning the old man into a hero for his village.
*** FunnyMoment: As part of the act, Lone Wolf ''[[ThanksForTheMammary plants the old man's hands on the woman's chest]]''.

* TheWoobie: Tavig, a character Lone Wolf may encounter in Book 7. He's just some poor guy who took on the mission of invading Castle Death to pay for his sister's ransom. After being thrown into TheMaze twice, all he wants is to escape. Why is he a woobie? Let's just say that if the hero meets him, he'll only get a quick death if [[spoiler:''Lone Wolf kills him''. Otherwise he'll either be torn apart by dog men or slowly crushed to death by a giant fist]]. Yeah, [[EverythingTryingToKillYou Castle Death's a fun place]].
** It gets worse. The UpdatedRerelease has a [[ADayInTheLimelight bonus adventure]] where you take control of Tavig early in his jaunt into Kazan-Oud. He kills some nasty bad guys, thwarts a plot by Zahda to escape the island, and saves a damsel in distress, and as they reach their escape, he sets her loose and ''goes back into the castle'' to his inevitable fate. Poor guy.

** Far from the only example; as mentioned in the main article, this is the tradeoff if Lone Wolf brings the Sommerswerd with him on his quests. There is at least one enemy that's nigh impossible to beat ''without'' the Sommerswerd that can't be avoided though: the [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Deathlord Ixiataaga]].
