Trivia Tropes:

  • Diagnosis of God: Lady Steris has No Social Skills by her own admission, exhaustively prepares for social encounters, and loves to memorize facts and lists. Brandon Sanderson confirmed that she's on the autism spectrum.
  • Uplifted Side Story: The Alloy of Law was originally conceived as a standalone spinoff novel set between the Original Trilogy and the upcoming "Era 2" trilogy, but, when it was very well received, Brandon Sanderson expanded the story into the Wax and Wayne tetralogy.

  • Word of Gay: Sanderson said prior to the book's release that there would be a lesbian character. Afterwards fans guessed it was Ranette. Peter Ahlstrom, Brandon's assistant, confirmed it, and Ranette's appearance in Shadows of Self has her name-drop a girlfriend.
  • Word of God: Many examples.
    • Steris is on the autism spectrum.
    • If Wax held a Shard, his god metal would be named Waxillium.
    • Wayne was the first character conceived for the story.
