* {{Foil}}: Both members of Shelby's two trios foil their same-gender counterparts. Cindy is a [[JumpedAtTheCall Jumps at Shelby's call type]] (and in one of the books, is implied to have been drawn to Shelby's unusual nature right away, though then it was Shelby being exotic rather than eccentric) who tends to make less than sensible decisions; Angie is initially thrown horribly by Shelby's ways and is prone to pointing out when a decision isn't well thought through (though [[NotSoAboveItAll she has her moments]]). Noah is a SourSupporter who hates getting involved in the plot while Vince is immediately drawn into Shelby's mystery-seeking ways and remains as such; Vince also has a fair amount of ShipTease with Shelby while Noah's relationship with her [[HeterosexualLifePartners is strictly platonic]].
