  • Bad Powers, Good People :
  • Being Good Sucks : He gets tortured, stabbed, and has to cut off his own hand because he chose to do the right thing

  • Heroic Resolve : When his hand gets cut off, he's not the one that flinches
  • I Am Not My Father
  • I Want My Beloved to Be Happy : Is willing to make his relationship with Ethan polyamorous if that is what Ethan wants, as well as to let Ethan take up a dominate role even though Samet wouldn't enjoy either.
  • Lets Wait Awhile : Though he is clearly attracted to Ethan very early, he waits until he's damn sure Ethan is actually consenting, even rejecting Ethan's first moves a couple times because he doesn't think Ethan is in his right mind.
  • Lima Syndrome : Has shades of this toward Ethan.
  • Nice Guy
  • Non-Action Guy : 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

  • Power of Trust : The fact that he trusts Ethan unconditionally quite probably saved the world.
  • Property of Love : Despite being the 'master' in their relationship, he has this to Ethan because Ethan knows his true name

    Warlord Vadin 
  • Action Dad
  • Asskicking Equals Authority : He's not a king. He's a warlord.
  • Big Bad : Willing to destroy the world to get what he wants
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones : Genuinely loves his son and is an affectionate father. He even nags Samet about grandkids
  • Evil Overlord
  • A Father to His Men : It's more because he knows the value of loyalty than actual caring, but he is a Benevolent Boss toward his soldiers
  • Faux Affably Evil : Though he actually does respect King Robert, and it's possible some of his later friendly behavior toward Robert is a result of knowing Robert protected Samet.
  • For the Evulz : His torture of Ethan is actually to power up an artifact, though it's hinted this is also a factor.
  • Kick the Dog : Vadin is utterly brutal to Ethan, torturing him physically and psychologically in addition to raping him.
  • Offing the Offspring : Averted. Vadin would rather die than hurt his son. When he thinks he has killed Samet, he has a Villainous Breakdown
  • Papa Wolf : 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
  • Utopia Justifies the Means : 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.
  • Worthy Opponent : Is actually quite cordial to Robert and seems to think they should have a Friendly Enemy 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.

    King Robert 

    Prelate Graham 
  • Badass Pacifist : Despite his position forbidding him to engage in violence even to defend himself, he volunteers to ride into the heart of Vadin's stronghold
  • The Consigliere : His official role to King Robert
  • The Good Chancellor
  • No-Harm Requirement : Being a Prelate means he's forbidden weapons or to engage in violence. However, it's also against the rules to harm Prelates
  • Old Friend : He and Robert have known each other since childhood and are almost like brothers at times.
  • Parental Abandonment : 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.
  • So Proud of You : Despite the laws forbidding him from openly parenting his son, he is clearly a good father and takes pride in Sir Vincent.
  • Will Not Tell a Lie : His oaths prevent him from telling an outright falsehood, though he does occasionally pull the You Didn't Ask! card and at least once just flat out begs Robert to stop asking him questions.

    Sir Vincent 
  • Always Save the Girl : Averted. He clearly wants to rush off to save Sarah, but knows Samet getting the wards back up is more important. However, when Samet tells him it's alright, Sir Vincent doesn't hesitate a moment to rush into the Land of Faerie to save her
  • Badass Normal : Clearly the best of Robert's knights Later averted when he gets turned into a werewolf
  • Childhood Friend Romance : Has one with Princess Sarah and has managed to keep it secret for years.
  • Determinator : Gets an arrow through his foot and nearly strangled, and still tries to keep coming.
  • Fairy Godmother : Samet inadvertently saddles him with one. He's less than grateful.
  • Fearless Fool : Samet notes that Sir Vincent is either the bravest or stupidest man he's ever met. Samet is leaning toward the latter.
  • Friendly Enemy : He comes the closest of all Robert's forces to managing to kill Samet, then ends up his bodyguard.
  • Heroic Bastard : He's Graham's illegitimate son
  • Hero of Another Story : It's clear he and Sarah got up to a lot of shenanigans when stuck in the Land of Faerie.
  • Lady and Knight
  • Missing Mom : No mention is ever made of his mother
  • Odd Friendship : Samet seems to appreciate that Sir Vincent hates him for actual reasons rather than just because Samet is a sorcerer.

  • The Conscience : Does not hesitate to call her husband out
  • The Heart : One of the first to realize Samet is one of the good guys and gives him a much needed hug
  • The High Queen
  • Proper Lady : Though she appears to be one, she does pick up a sword to back up her husband on at least one occasion
