Added DiffLines:

* WillNotTellALie : His oaths prevent him from telling an outright falsehood, though he does occasionally pull the YouDidntAsk card and at least once just flat out begs Robert to stop asking him questions.

* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes : Genuinely loves his son and is an affectionate father. He even nags Samet about grandkids

* WorthyOpponent : Is actually quite cordial to Robert and seems to think they should have a FriendlyEnemy relationship despite what Vadin did to Robert's little brother. He even expects Robert to get on board with the idea of an alliance and a marriage between Samet and one of Robert's daguhters.

Added DiffLines:


[[folder:Warlord Vadin]]

* AsskickingEqualsAuthority : He's not a king. He's a warlord.
* BigBad : Willing to destroy the world to get what he wants
* EvilOverlord
* AFatherToHisMen : It's more because he knows the value of loyalty than actual caring, but he is a BenevolentBoss toward his soldiers

* KickTheDog : Vadin is utterly brutal to Ethan, torturing him physically and psychologically in addition to raping him.
* OffingTheOffspring : Averted. Vadin would rather die than hurt his son. When he thinks he has killed Samet, he has a VillainousBreakdown
* PapaWolf : An odd version because he's well aware Samet can take care of himself, but he's still protective of Samet and backhands someone for insulting his son
* UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans : Part of the motive for his actions seems to be that he thinks the world would be a lot better off with Samet ruling it.

* OldFriend : He and Robert have known each other since childhood and are almost like brothers at times.
* ParentalAbandonment : Played straight and averted. He's forbidden from actually being a father to his son, but figures out how to take a third option by having Sir Vincent brought into Robert's household.
* SoProudOfYou : Despite the laws forbidding him from openly parenting his son, he is clearly a good father and takes pride in Sir Vincent.

[[folder:Sir Vincent]]

* HeroicResolve : [[spoiler: When his hand gets cut off, he's not the one that flinches]]

* LimaSyndrome : Has shades of this toward Ethan.
* Nice Guy
* NonActionGuy : He could have saved himself a lot of pain if he'd ever learned which end of a sword to hold instead of relying entirely on his magic
* MadScientist : Has this trait, often played for laughs
* PowerOfTrust : The fact that he trusts Ethan unconditionally quite probably saved the world.
* PropertyOfLove : Despite being the 'master' in their relationship, [[spoiler: he has this to Ethan because Ethan knows his true name]]

* ParentalSubstitute : Technically an orphan. His mother died in childbirth, but there was sufficient age difference between him and his older brother Robert that Robert and Tabitha simply stepped up as his parents.
* PropertyOfLove : Both played straight and averted. [[spoiler: He calls Samet master, but he knows Samet's truename, thus the actual power in the relationship lies with him]]
* RapeAndSwitch : Somewhat averted. He's not gay despite being with Samet.
