* ActionGirl
* AdultFear

to:

* ActionGirl
ActionGirl: Like all Alban and Eiran women, Grainne is capable of defending herself in battle. In fact, as Phedre points out, Grainne is the most magnificent (and famous) ActionGirl of them all, as she leads her people to war and slays a lot of enemies during the battles of Bryn Gorrydum and Troyes-le-Mont.
* AdultFearAdultFear: Her younger son Eamonn ends up trapped in a Caerdiccan city, forced into fighting in its army against the enemy Valpetra, with the strong possibility of him being killed in battle there. Though it's unknown if Grainne actually hears of Eamonn's plight (and what her reaction would be, given Dalriada culture) it's still scary to think of her reaction if Eamonn had died in Lucca.

to:

* BoisterousBruiser
*
BoisterousBruiser: Grainne is very imposing-- her very appearance makes it obvious that she's a very capable fighter. She has a very bloodthirsty, excitable personality as well, especially when Phedre first meets her. This is later toned down a bit in the Imriel trilogy, emphasizing the maturity she has gained in the years since her brother's death.

* BadassBookworm
BadassBookworm: For all his 'barbarian' ways, Eamonn is deeply intrigued by the cultures of other nations, as well as philosophical questions and puzzles.

He is especially fascinated by Tiberium, which has a scholarly reputation, and sets out to study at the University in Tiberium after his stay in Terre D'Ange.
