* OurElvesAreBetter: Examples abound during the Elf Saga, with the elves of Homestead falling into the "wood elf" category and the drow falling into the "dark elf" category. Gwynn is the last half-elf, and [[WordOfGod Word of God]] is that she was created with the biological phenomenon of "hybrid vigor" in mind.

* CelibateHero: Moose, Cassandra, and Alex incorrectly interpret Gwynn's declaration that she will let no man touch her to mean she is this. Turns out there is [[BadassGay something else going on...]]

Added DiffLines:

* MeaningfulName: What do you call a woman who's desperately loved by someone who can't be with her? [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TngViNw2pOo Ah, right.]]
** Subverted with Moose, as he is slender, blond, and not particularly evocative of an ungulate.

Added DiffLines:

* MysteriousEmployer: Averted with Cassandra, as she accompanies the group she's assembled on all of their adventures.


* TheBigGuy: Despite Alex's frequent references to him as this, Moose is a subversion. The fact that he designed and made custom mechanical weapons and armor out of [[FantasyMetal an impossible alloy]] and seems able to match wits with Lady Cassandra implies he is more of a [[GeniusBruiser genius bruiser]].

* BrokenAce: What the hell happened to Moose?


* DisappearedDad: Gwynn's father abruptly left the Elven Woods twenty years before the events of the second book. She believes that he's still alive somwhere.
