* AntiHero: Wild Rhona (type IV/V). Most heroic characters are type III.
* {{Badass}}: A dime a ''two'' dozen, what with all the [[ActionGirl Action Girls]] and just as many competent fighting men. It's still ''not'' a WorldOfBadass, with plenty of helpless civilians especially in Draeze.
** BadassAndChildDuo: Wild Rhona with her daughter Brianna.
** BadassBookworm / MostWritersAreWriters: Wild Rhona, the protagonist, has written several books including a history anthology from which the book's opening quote is supposedly lifted. Other Wilds are shown reading in their leisure time.
** BadassFamily: Tadhg and Rhona; Guinevere and the other Rhona; the Bors family.
** BadassPacifist: Ayan, for the natural ease with which she commands the respect of violent people who could tear her apart with minimal effort.

* {{BFS}}/OneHandedZweihander: Downplayed. Wild Rhona's WeaponOfChoice is a realistically-sized zweihander, complete with a ricasso and an extra set of parrying hooks for half-swording. Her height and strength allows her to fence with it one-handed.

She also treats her soldiers well and commands their genuine loyalty and respect, even fraternizing with them.
