Pre Crooked Kingdom
- Confirmed in Crooked Kingdom.
- In addition, Jesper and Inej have unresolved issues with them both. Jesper has been leaching funds off his family to support his gambling habits, and Inej is not sure that her parents will forgive her for what she's done to survive. Jesper even knows where his parents are and has contact with them.
- Confirmed, more or less. Jesper's father is an important supporting character. His mother is dead, though. Inej's parents make a brief but significant appearance (courtesy of Kaz) in the last pages of the book
- This gang leader has a high chance of being female, simply because all of Leigh Bardugo's works so far have featured a varied cast of female characters and currently the only women in Six of Crows are Inej, Nina, and Tante Heleen.
- Jossed, Kaz and Pekka are the only important gang leaders in the story.
- It's unlikely Jesper or Wylan will be killed off, as Word Of God has mentioned several times her dislike of the Bury Your Gays trope.
- Killing off Inej to give Kaz angst would be about the most cliche, sexist plot twist in existence. And as a now kidnapped former sex slave, Inej has already been through the gauntlet. In addition, she has firm goals (more so than pretty much anyone else), and therefor momentum to keep her story going.
- Nina has already figuratively "died" over taking the Jurda Parem.
- Kaz is the main character, so killing him off would be very gutsy.
- Confirmed. Matthias is fatally shot by an angry young Drüskelle who regards him as a traitor.
- Jossed, Shu Han and Novyi Zem only have small roles in the plot.
- Confirmed, Nina is a main character in King Of Scars.
Post Crooked Kingdom
The entire duology is an origin story for The Wraith, a Daredevil-esque vigilante who hunts and kills slavers while dealing with her PTSD and religious guilt.
- There's also her doomed past love who's become a violent, urban vigilante of his own, the Bastard of the Barrel.
- Not to mention her ally, the Lady of Mourning.
