* GodModeSue: Stile
** The Tan Adept, who possesses the mind controlling [[HypnoticEyes Evil Eye]], but can only use it against any given person once. [[Anime/CodeGeass Sound familiar]]?
** Also, the cover art for ''Blue Adept'' depicts Red as looking strikingly like Nicole Kidman; a plot point in the book involves her and TheHero Stile participating in a [[ShowWithinAShow theatrical Tourney performance]] (in this case, a dance) involving StarCrossedLovers in an exotic setting (Arabia). Flash forward to...''Film/MoulinRouge'', where Nicole Kidman's Satine stars with TheHero Christian in a [[ShowWithinAShow theatrical performance]] (a musical this time) involving StarCrossedLovers in an exotic setting (India). For added irony, Red was a man-hater while Satine was a courtesan.
