* ETuBrute: She betrays her sister Sydney.


* StarCrossedLovers: She and Adrian, because of the difference in their race and the fact that it's considered a taboo for a human and a Moroi to have a relationship together. Through many obstacles, though, they do manage to earn a happy ending and live a life together.

Added DiffLines:

* SeeingThroughAnothersEyes: Because of her bond with Adrian she has the ability to see and experience everything Adrian experiences. This doesn't always go down well though, especially in the first few novels, given Adrian's habit of drinking, smoking and womanizing.


Added DiffLines:

* ItsAllMyFault: Blamed herself for a long time for being raped (as Keith had led her to believe that it was her fault), when in actuality it was not her fault at all.


Added DiffLines:

* SlutShaming: Was afraid of this happening after being raped by Keith. This is why she swore Sydney to secrecy about it.


%%* BathsAreFun

to:

%%* BathsAreFun * BathsAreFun: Really enjoys her first bath in the hotel after coming out of re-education.



%%* BewareTheNiceOnes

to:

%%* BewareTheNiceOnes* BewareTheNiceOnes: Sydney is usually very nice and obliging by nature. However, if you hurt someone she cares about, she won't hesitate to hurt you back. This is seen when she humiliates Laurel (via chemically-contaminated shampoo/conditioner) into stopping her bullying of Jill, and also when she threatens to burn a group of Alchemists alive (though it is a bluff on her part) in order to make Sheridan release Adrian who was being held at gun-point.



%% * BroodingBoyGentleGirl: The gentle girl to Adrian's brooding boy.

to:

%% * {{Brainwashing}}: What the Alchemists attempt to do to her in re-education. It doesn't work, but it does leave some scars which take a while to fade.
* BroodingBoyGentleGirl: The gentle girl to Adrian's brooding boy.boy. Even Duncan lampshades this, saying that all Alchemist girls fall in love with Moroi men who are brooding.



%%* CannotDream
%%* CerebusRetcon

to:

%%* CannotDream
%%* CerebusRetcon
* CannotDream: During her three months in solitary confinement, Sydney is kept in a periodically drugged state as a form of psychological torture in which she can never be truly refreshed, to make her more susceptible to whatever mind-games the Alchemists throw at her. This means that she can't dream (and thus Adrian can't contact her in a dream). Later, after coming out of solitary, Sydney finds that the detainees are all drugged into sleep when it's bedtime in the re-education centre, something which poses a problem since she's trying to communicate with Adrian via a spirit dream. She eventually manages to turn off the system that is filtering the drug into the sleeping rooms, allowing Adrian to finally contact her.
* CerebusRetcon: Sydney's habit of playing with her food but not eating it, which Rose dismissed as a weird quirk in the VA series, is covered in more depth this time around. It's revealed that it's the result of a serious eating disorder caused by her father's constant judgments about her weight and appearance compared to that of the Moroi. Adrian is the only one who notices Sydney's eating habits for what they are and calls her out on them, telling her that she'll never have the body which Jill has and that she could stand to gain a few pounds as she is practically underweight.



%%* ColdBloodedTorture

to:

%%* ColdBloodedTorture* ColdBloodedTorture: Is tortured by Sheridan (both physically ''and'' psychologically) multiple times in the re-education center, something which stays with her a long time after her escape.



%%* {{Determinator}}

to:

%%* {{Determinator}}* {{Determinator}}: In the latter half of the series, she definitely becomes this. During her captivity in ''Silver Shadows'' she never gives up hope that Adrian will come for her and never gives up trying to escape from the facility she's trapped in and helping the allies she's made among the other detainees. Later she persistently strives to find a way for her and Adrian to make a life together without the Alchemists hunting them down.

%%* BadassAdorable
* AttemptedRape: During her stay in Court in The Fiery Heart, a group of Moroi males led by Wesley Drozdov attempts to drug her and forcibly drink her blood (something which is the equivalent of date rape in the Moroi world). Both Adrian and Christian Ozera are furious when they find out about it, Christian going as far as vowing to hunt down the perpetrators and make them pay.
* {{Badass}}: Sydney is a powerful witch who uses her magic to help others in trouble.
* BadassAdorable: She's an attractive young woman with powerful magic and can hold her own in a (magical) fight.

* TeamMom: Is this for their group in Palm Springs.

to:

* TeamMom: Is effectively this for their group in Palm Springs.Springs. In the very beginning Jill, Eddie and Adrian rely on her too much to clean up their messes and take them to Clarence's and on errands, and forget that they should be picking up a lot of the slack as well. It takes a hard talking-too from Sydney for them to realise that they aren't doing their part as well as they should. They eventually grow out of this as the series progresses, though.
* WhatTheHellHero: Gives quite a number of these over the course of the series, especially in the beginning.
** First, she yells at Adrian when she's forced to drive to Los Angeles to pick him up in the middle of the night, berating him for exposing Jill via the bond to his sex life.
** She snaps at Eddie and Jill for not being serious enough about their mission and for relying on her too much to clean up their own messes. This is straight after Jill returns from her unauthorised date with Lee, which Sydney also scolds her about.
** In ''The Golden Lily'' she tells Angeline off after she gets in trouble with the school for punching a member of a visiting band who was assaulting her (though this is mainly because Angeline doesn't seem to be taking it seriously enough). At the same time she berates her for moving in on Eddie in a way that's making Eddie uncomfortable and tells her to stop.



%%* AccidentalTruth
%%* ActionSurvivor

to:

%%* AccidentalTruth
%%* ActionSurvivor
* AccidentalTruth: In ''Bloodlines'', her bully Laurel calls her 'vamp girl' because her pale skin makes her look like a stereotypical vampire (at least to humans). Though Laurel never discovers the truth, she accidentally hits the nail on the head when she calls Jill 'vamp girl', because Jill ''is'' a vampire, though not of the undead variety.
%* ActionSurvivor: She's a princess (and one of the last of her family) who is sent into hiding to protect her from dissidents who want to kill her to end Lissa's rule. Jill has to adapt to living in a hot and dry environment and among humans, while at the same time fighting against the occasional Strigoi that crop up.



* AdultFear: Jill was killed in an assassination attempt just before the beginning of the series, but was brought back by Adrian's spirit magic.

* BackFromTheDead: She was killed during an assassination attempt at Court a week before the events of the first book. Adrian managed to bring her back from the dead before anyone noticed, forging a spirit-bond between them.
* BadassAdorable: Is very beautiful (though she doesn't realise it in the beginning). She's also a water-user who uses her magic to fight against enemies, mainly Strigoi.
* BadDreams: Has nightmares about her death for a while after coming to Palm Springs which often result in her waking up screaming and crying. These fade as the series progresses.
* BadassPrincess: She's the crown princess of the ruling family, and is able on many occasions to utilise her water magic to help win a fight against Strigoi or other enemies.



%%* DaywalkingVampire

to:

%%* DaywalkingVampire* DamselInDistress: At the end of ''Silver Shadows'' she is abducted by Alicia DeGraw and held captive in a Warriors of Light facility. It takes the Palm Springs gang (and those at Court) a whole month to locate and rescue her.
* DaywalkingVampire: She has to get used to living on a human schedule while in Palm Springs, and this largely means that she is out and about during the day (at time when most other Moroi would be asleep).

* AdultFear: Her younger sister was turned into a Strigoi years ago while protecting their father during an attack. When Nina finally locates and turns her back, Olive suddenly disappears and cuts off all contact with everyone she knows.
* BigSisterInstinct: Cares deeply about her younger sister, especially after bringing her back from her Strigoi state. She is devastated when Olive leaves Court without telling her and puts all of her spirit-magic into finding her. [[spoiler: This ultimately proves to be her downfall, as she eventually becomes comatose from all the spirit she's been using. She never recovers from it.]]
* SanitySlippage: After Olive's disappearance Nina throws all of her spirit into finding her through dream-walking, and eventually this takes its toll on her. After her and Adrian's final attempt to contact Olive in a dream she completely loses it and slips into a coma. Though Sonya and Adrian hold out hope for her recovery, it's revealed in the epilogue of ''The Ruby Circle'' that she never did.

* UnrequitedLove: She is initially in love with Eddie, who is in love with Jill. This doesn't last long, however, as Eddie gives up on finding love with Jill (as he thinks it's impossible and Jill doesn't even return his affection) and decides to date her.

* SilkHidingSteel: Since most of the information about her [[spoiler: at least before her cameo in ''Silver Shadows'']] comes from Sydney's memories of her just after her rape, she comes off as being gentle and timid. However, as seen in ''Silver Shadows'', she is anything but. She is willing to stand up to her father and testify against him in the divorce case.

%%* BeingPersonalIsntProfessional
%%* BerserkButton

to:

%%* BeingPersonalIsntProfessional
%%* BerserkButton
* BeingPersonalIsntProfessional: The mindset which was drilled into her by the Alchemists and her father. Part of the Alchemist beliefs is that all vampires are evil, and for an Alchemist to become friendly with any dhampirs or Moroi is tantamount to treason in the eyes of the Alchemist leaders. Already being in trouble for helping Rose escape from Court a month before the beginning of ''Bloodlines'' (and later helping her try to prove her innocence and locate Lissa's mystery half-sibling), Sydney tries to mantain a professional and impersonal attitude toward Eddie, Adrian and Jill as she goes about her business in Palm Springs, so as not to give the Alchemists any more fuel to recall her and send her to a re-education centre.



%%* BelatedLoveEpiphany
* BerserkButton: Is a very nice, kind-hearted person most of the time. However, beware if you do anything to hurt her loved ones. She'll make you pay.



%%* BigSisterInstinct

to:

%%* BigSisterInstinctBigDamnHeroes
* BigSisterInstinct: Sydney is very protective of Zoe and determined to do anything to prevent her from being tattooed with the golden lily, knowing that once she is there is no turning back for her. Unfortunately most of her attempts to help her sister and met with anger on Zoe's part. While in Palm Springs Sydney develops a similar attitude toward Jill, largely because Jill reminds her of Zoe, and even goes as far as getting revenge on Jill's bully Laurel by contaminating her hair with a disgusting concoction of chemicals.



%%* BullyHunter

to:

%%* BullyHunter* BullyHunter: After Laurel accuses the innocent Jill of dealing out alcohol in the dorms (and even going to Mrs Weathers with "proof") and gets her cronies to vandalise Jill's dorm room, Sydney gets back at her by ruining her hair with a concoction of chemicals.

Added DiffLines:

* DatingWhatDaddyHates: Sydney ends up falling in love with Moroi Adrian Ivashkov, something which goes against the beliefs of both of their races. Sydney's father Jared Sage is not happy when he hears about it, and is even more furious when he discovers that she's married him.
%%* {{Determinator}}


Added DiffLines:

* TheDriver: In Palm Springs one of Sydney's main jobs is to drive Jill and Eddie to feedings at Clarence's. She also has to drive Jill to modelling sessions at Lia DiStefani's shop in ''Bloodlines''.
* HeroWithBadPublicity: Though a good person at heart and very loyal to the Alchemists (at least at first), Sydney's adventure with Rose and Dimitri has gotten her in trouble with her superiors. By the beginning of ''Bloodlines'' she's still not fully trusted again and it's made clear that if she makes another huge mistake it's likely that she'll be sent to a re-education facility.
* NiceGirl: Is generally this, though she can be tough and unfeeling when circumstances require it.
* SecretKeeper: She is the only one Carly tells about her DateRape, and is sworn to secrecy about it.
* TeamMom: Is this for their group in Palm Springs.
