* ColorMotif: Lots and lots of green, which represents fertility and abundance, a fitting color for a clan of merchants. Appropriately, they have an affinity for wood and plants.



* OddCouple: Their house is made up of various races not just drow. This is due to a need to bulk up their numbers and the fact that their trading covers a vast network area. Some dwarves and even halmes head minor sub-houses but when entering Chel are almost always accompanied by a drow.
* ProperlyParanoid: They designed their home in Chel so that an attack like the one that drove them out of Mimaneid couldn't happen again, and they actively cultivate positive relationships with other clans to avoid the jealousy and discontent that caused it.

[[spoiler:Unfortunately, it happens again during the Puppeteer Incident when Rel'lumia is killed by her own bodyguards]].

* DiesWideOpen: [[spoiler:When her corpse was found after the Puppeteer incident, her eyes were wide open and of the pupil-less/iris-less variant, suggesting she died in agony]].

* AbusiveParents: His mother is definitely this, having kept him starved and maltreated just because she only values him as breeding stock for Nidraa'chal females.
* BabyFactory: He is a gender-inverted form of this trope.

* BabyFactory: He is a gender-inverted form of this trope.trope; he was constantly starved and kept malnourished because he was only seen as breeding stock for Nidraa'chal females. This is why he's so tiny and feminine-looking.

to:

* TinyGuyHugeGirl: Again with Ash'mita.A small male drow compared to the taller Ash'mita.

* FauxAffablyEvilFauxAffablyEvil: Her politeness only enhances her arrogance and contempt for those not under Snadhya'rune's banner.



* LaserGuidedKarma: She and the Ys council kick the Sarghress out of town in Chapter 45, telling them to "fuck right off" for not knowing who Snadhya'rune is or what her goals are. [[spoiler:Some chapters later, Ys is held under siege by the Sarghress-Kavahini alliance, with the entire council subdued and taken prisoner]].



* SmugSmiler

to:

* SmugSmilerSmugSmiler: Much like Snadhya'rune, unfortunately.
* SophisticatedAsHell: As she said to the Sarghress before kicking them out of Ys in Chapter 45:
--> Kane'ohe: This is the new beginning for drowkind, lead by our beloved Lady Snadhya'rune. Do you know what that means? No? Well you can '''''fuck right off!'''''

An Ys council member and Nal'sarkoth representative. [[spoiler: She is also a Nidraa'chal agent]]. She appears in Chapter 45, informing the Tur'geis' squad that they are no longer welcome in Ys. Her concept art can be found [[http://www.drowtales.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/ch45_Kane.png here]].

* DeepCoverAgent: She is ostensibly represents her colony and Nal'sarkoth interests, but she has [[spoiler:been a Nidraa'chal agent for decades]].

Added DiffLines:

* KarmaHoudiniWarranty: In Chapter 45, she banishes a Sarghress squad from Ys. The squad threatens that the Sarghress clan will overrun Ys in the future, which Kane'ohe [[UnderestimatingBadassery dismisses as an empty threat]]. Several years later in Chapter 54, the Sarghress leadership itself takes over Ys after negotiations fail, thanks to Kane'ohe attempting to strike a one-sided deal that favors Snadhya'rune.
* MoleInCharge: [[spoiler:She secretly ensures that the drowo'lath surface colonies remain subservient to Felde and, in turn, Snadhya'rune. The Sarghress clan's takeover of Ys is their first step to unite the colonies against Felde.]]


Added DiffLines:

* UnderestimatingBadassery: In both her appearances, she fails to see the Sarghress clan as a serious threat, which eventually leads to her downfall in Chapter 54. [[spoiler:This is partly because Kane'ohe is confident that Snadhya'rune and the Nidraa'chal will protect her from any repercussions.]]

Added DiffLines:

* DeathByIrony: She was theoretically the best protected when [[spoiler:Kharla'ggen was ordered to kill all the clan leaders, since her goblin bodyguards were immune to Kharla's PeoplePuppets power]]. And yet, she was the only great clan leader to be killed during the event since [[spoiler:said guards took advantage of it to betray her instead]].

* BetrayalInsurance: Despite being a supporter of Snadhya'rune, she is fully aware that the eldest Sharen daughter will eventually betray her. Because of this, Viri'sylvia keeps [[spoiler:Nishi'kanta]] as a guest and prisoner in secret until she can trade her to Snad in return for favors.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindows: She dies dyes her hair solid green to match her eyes.



* {{Greed}}: Unlike most drowolath nobles, Viri'sylvia is mainly interested in gaining wealth. She is willing to offer her resources to the highest bidder no matter who it is.



* TheNapoleon: She ''very'' short and quite sensitive about it.

to:

* JerkassHasAPoint: She makes a point in that while most of the nobility have been fighting a costly civil war, the commoners have been suffering from disease, hunger and poverty as a result of said war.
* TheNapoleon: She is ''very'' short and quite sensitive about it.it.
