* ScrewDestiny: This becomes his driving force once her learns [[spoiler: that his fate is to become the ravenous soul-devouring spirit within the physical Soul Reaver. Ironically, he ultimately succeeds in doing so by giving into this fate...but under entirely different conditions. In doing so, he was able to purify the Soul Reaver, which allowed Kain to see and fight the true enemy: the Elder God.]]

* EveryoneHasStandards: While he starts out ''Soul Reaver 2'' cherishing his humanity and believing vampirism is a plague, he's nonetheless disgusted with the brutality of Moebius' soldiers.
-->'''Raziel''': In this era, vampires were clearly not the uncontested predators we had been... these creatures were hunted mercilessly, and oppressed. And while I still believed that vampirism was a plague, and had to be wiped out, there was nothing noble or righteous in this crusade this was simply ruthless persecution.

** The other popular theory is that she's a pure-blooded Hylden, but that she somehow avoided banishment to the demon realm; Hash'ak'gik repeatedly laments that the Hylden were once beautiful and that their monstrous forms were the result of their long banishment.[[note]]The fact that the Builder, the only Hylden confirmed not to be banished, looks as deformed as the rest of them could cast doubt on this theory, but could otherwise be explained either as a result of his own torturous existence in the Eternal Prison or simply due to resource limitations.[[/note]]

* HornsOfVillainy: The elder Kain from ''Soul Reaver'' onwards has four horns growing on his forehead.



* BeenThereShapedHistory: As revealed at the end of ''Soul Reaver 2'', Raziel was the one who [[spoiler:killed Janos Audron, during his days as a Sarafan. Not only that, but it turns out that the wraith Raziel from the future was the one who killed his own past self and the other five Sarafan who committed the murder, providing the very same corpses that Kain would raise from the dead as vampires 1000 years later.]]
* BlueIsHeroic: He has blue skin and is one of the main heroes of the series, being considerably more moral than Kain.



* FacialHorror: He completely lacks a lower jaw.



* TheUnintelligible: Defied. Though Raziel has no lower jaw to speak of, he is still capable of perfect speech. Amy Hennig has given a HandWave this as a result of "very supple throat muscles."

Added DiffLines:

* JerkassHasAPoint: In the beginning of ''Defiance'', he accuses Raziel of being a coward, because part of the reason he's remaining in the Underworld and refusing to obey him is in part because Raziel is trying to delay the inevitable and avoid being trapped in the Soul Reaver. Raziel even acknowledges in his narration that the Elder isn't wrong.


Added DiffLines:

* BlueIsHeroic: He has blue skin, and is arguably the most unambiguously heroic character in the series.


Added DiffLines:

* ChekhovsGunman: He's mentioned in a grand total of two lines in ''Blood Omen'', but isn't introduced as a character until ''Soul Reaver 2''.

-->'''Sarafan Lord:''' Your ambition to rule this world is but the youthful craving of a petty noble who has gained too much power, but never enough.

Added DiffLines:

* AmbiguouslyHuman: At the end of ''Defiance'', he isn't really a vampire anymore, as [[spoiler:Moebius' vampire-weakening staff no longer affects him, because the Heart of Darkness that originally gave him his vampirism has been removed]]. However, he retains all of his vampiric abilities and possibly vulnerabilities. Kain is definitely no longer human, but also no longer a vampire; what he ''is'' is as uncertain as the rest of the series since the story was LeftHanging after ''Defiance''.

-->'''Kain:''' There's no shame in it, Raziel - revenge is motivation enough. At least it's ''honest.'' Hate me, but do it ''honestly.''
