  • Body Horror: In the land of Nidal, torture and mutilation is both art and holy calling.
  • Dark Is Evil: Pangolais is permanently shrouded in darkness and canonically Lawful Evil.

    Prince of Wolves 
  • All Girls Want Bad Boys: Both in-universe and out. Radovan is known for his charm with the ladies, and many female readers prefer him to Jeggare.
  • Animals Hate Him: Most animals, even tame creatures, react harshly to Radovan's attempts at friendship. This changes when Jeggare conjures a spiritual mount for him. Averted with Arnisant, who considers Radovan a friend.
  • Sand In My Eyes: After discovering that Radovan is still alive, Jeggare tears up. In his journal, he writes that he dried his eyes because of "ancient grave dust".
  • Sesquipedalian Loquaciousness: Jeggare's writing and speech pattern is noticeably more complex than most other characters in the stories.
  • Stubborn Mule: A donkey, in this case. She reacts well enough to Azra, but the stubbornness is still there.

Master of Devils

As a sequel to Prince of Wolves, many of the tropes above apply here as well.
  • Drunken Master: Radovan goes toe to toe with a prodigiously able drunk in a tavern.

Short Fiction

    Hell's Pawns
