  because (paraphrasing) everyone, Vlad included, is a bad-ass. I mean,
  Aliera's a demigod, one gets the impression that Morrolan has won pitched
  battles against hundreds single-handedly, and Vlad is exceptionally good at
  just about everything he does (except possibly sorcery).

Sometimes i feel something similar; basically, Vlad has managed to
make it this far only because he has acquired some incredible
bad-asses as friends.  But then it seems as though it were ordained by
fate, what with reincarnation.  Plus, the Brust theory about writing
characters as people whom he found interesting and would want to hang
out with is fairly compelling.
