Also present is the Silver Prince, who forces children to work in his mines, murders the Laughing Prince's son, and [[{{Squick}} bathes in the blood of faeries]].

** Part of this ''did'' come from the first book's implications that [[InformedAttribute he was a more complex character than the other Fire Starters]] - Dustfinger even notes that Basta never ''enjoyed'' killing animals and hurting people like the rest of the group - but given that this is either dropped after Book One or implied (by the narative) to not excuse his evilness, it's quite {{Egregious}} that people still insist as much. Especially given how they brush his indisputably evil deeds under a rug.

* MagnificentBastard: Orpheus. Not above harassing and (implied) molesting a young woman half his age just for being pretty and the daughter of his biggest hero. "Stealing" words of the creator of the world he lives in to create strange animals and entertainment devices just for his own purposes. Oh, and he tries to get rid of any other person with the Magic Voice. Even if it's a 13-yearsold girl. Doesn't stop at manipulating a pregnant woman and murder. [[{{Sarcasm Mode}} Lovely indeed]].

* FridgeLogic: It's been demonstrated that people in stories can write their own stories, which you can in turn read into and out of. People in those stories can do the same thing, [[RecursiveReality ad infinitum]]. This means that it's not only possible, but virtually certain, that our world is not at the top of the stack: that [[PunyEarthlings we are just the results of a story written somewhere else]], and that that somewhere else is just another story, and so on.

* BadassDecay: In a meta sense. In the book, Capricorn is seriously creepy and you can imagine that he'd be terrifying if you actually met him. In the movie, he's still evil, but he's also somewhat of a goof ball who apparently loves duct tape.

* CompleteMonster: Capricorn and the Silver Prince, definitely. ** [[TheDragon The Piper]] as well. Probably - we never get to see him do anything really evil though, despite all the threats. ** Then there's [[SmugSnake Orpheus]]. Good ''God'', there's Orpheus... ** [[EldritchAbomination The Shadow]].

* DracoInLeatherPants: In the books, Basta is a sadistic murderer and arsonist who once sliced up Dustfinger's face [[spoiler: (and much more recently murdered one of his oldest friends)]], and has threatened to do similar things to pretty much every single protagonist he's come across. In fanfiction, Basta is commonly portrayed as a somewhat misunderstood, but still a sweet and good-at-heart guy. [[BadAssDecay GAH.]]
