Added DiffLines:

* Foil: To Rain. Rain comments that she's the kind of woman she want to be [[spoiler: and she's even already gone through the transition she wants]], but she has none of the confidence that Rain developed throughout the comic. [[spoiler: Whereas Rain is comfortable enough to share her transgender status with people she trusts and hopes to one day be able to not be so closeted, Ana would rather keep it all to herself and never have to talk about it.]]

Added DiffLines:

* EveryoneHasStandards: [[spoiler: She was willing to stay in a horrible relationship with Chase because it was one of the only things her mother gave her approval for, but after figuring out that he was planning on perving on her underage classmates, she broke things off.]]


Added DiffLines:

* [[WellDoneSonGuy "Well Done, Daughter!" Girl]]: Her mother starved her of affection to the point that she was desperate for it, which contributes to most of her [[AlphaBitch early character]]. After the Halloween party, she realizes it just isn't worth it.

* GreaterScopeVillain: While he's never made a full appearance to date, it was no doubt his bigoted views on LGBT issues that caused Rain to hide her true self and become a ShrinkingViolet for most of her childhood and why Aiken (at first) and Kellen grew up to be unsympathetic towards their youngest sibling and LGBT people overall. Even then, however, the then bigoted Aiken, after being smacked by Fara for his intolerance, [[EveryoneHasStandards was pissed]] that his aunt made a comparison between his and his father's behavior. Kellen, despite still being a bigot as of now, says that the Flaherty children were relieved about not having to deal with him anymore when he bailed. [[CompleteMonster So, yeah...]]

* AbusiveParents: Let's put it this way: why did Aiken finally turn his life around and decide to try and be a better person? Fara compared him to Marcus.

* FreudianExcuse: [[spoiler: Vincent seems to think so about her transphobia. He theorizes it has less to do with being inherently transphobic and more with abandonment issues over her parents dying and running out on her and Chase breaking off their engagement. She may have also hated Jessica for taking Aiken away even if she wasn't a transgender woman.]]

Marcus' influence probably didn't help matters.]]



* {{Irony}}: In her character bio, it's mentioned that Kellen doesn't like being ignored, yet her actions seem to be all but assuring that Rain (and possibly Fara) will spend possibly the rest of their lives ignoring her. Even Aiken seems to be losing his patience with her bigotry and is only staying with her because he has nowhere else to go for the moment.



* NoSocialSkills: Not exactly touched upon so far in the actual story, but even when Kellen's not being transphobic she still often puts her foot in her mouth which makes her seem much more jerkish than she actually is.

** He also asks Brother Arthur to reprimand Rudy and Rain for "lewd Conduct" in the halls. "Lewd conduct" in this case translates as "holding hands and hugging."

* FieryRedHead: She has dark red hair, and can be very fierce and sharp tongued when she wants to be.

* CainAndAbel: Aiken was the Cain to Rain's Abel at first, but after some soul searching and a JerkassRealization, he's no longer this. Kellen on the other hand has seemingly irrevocably become the Cain after [[spoiler: cutting Rain's hair in her sleep.]] Rain refuses to have anything to do with the older sister and Kellen in turn tells her that she considers her embarrassing to be around.
* HalfIdenticalTwins: Averted. Kellen looks more similar to Rain than Aiken.

* ReformedButRejected: [[RealityEnsues Completely understandable]], given [[JerkAss how he acted]] upon Jessica telling him about her trans status. When he meets with her again, she freezes up and is clearly uncomfortable just having to talk to him despite his apologies. Unlike most examples of this trope, Aiken himself quickly sees it won't work out and leaves wishing her the best...[[TearJerker complete with tears in his eyes.]]

* NeverMyFault: Prefers to blame Rain for getting upset at her prejudiced actions, calls Emily a Social Justice Warrior for trying to explain basic facts, and accuses everyone who supports Rain of encouraging a disgusting fetish. Aiken and later Vincent rightfully point out that she's full of it.

* TookALevelInKindness: Aiken was initially a transphobic {{Jerkass}} who left his fiancee and refused to accept Rain. After a [[JerkassRealization realization]] and a ton of research on the subject, he's now become one of Rain's biggest supporters, even calling her "baby sis," and wants to patch things over with Jessica.

* CannotKeepASecret: He has to be reminded to shut up pretty often. On Rain's first day at St. Hallvard, he immediately outed her to Maria and Gavin.



* TookALevelInKindness: She's much nicer with Maria since she friended Rain and became part of the group, even if she does retain some bitchiness.



* NotSoDifferent: Fara finally seems to get through to him with an ArmorPiercingQuestion where she compares him to [[AbsuiveParents his father.]]
