* AbsurdCuttingPower: Because sharpness is in the nature of the domain of glass, Vidre can make a dagger so sharp that it can cut a falling hair lengthwise.

* InnateNightVision: Dominic has the domain of shadow, which gives him the ability to see clearly in the dark and even sense objects with his eyes closed through their shadows.

* TechnicalPacifist: Gaelwyn doesn't kill, but he ''is'' willing to detach every major muscle in a prisoner's body to paralyze them so that they can't escape.
* TheAtoner: Gaelwyn has renounced killing and is attempting to atone for his former actions in the employ of the Iron King. Unfortunately, most people don't believe him.
* TheUnfavorite: Dominic doesn't appear to have a very good relationship with his father.
