* 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.

* 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 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.

* JerkassHasAPoint: He does call out Emily for her behavior during the Halloween party and the fact that, two months after she broke up with him and stopped talking to him, she wants to get back together. Of course, it's undermined by the fact that [[spoiler: Emily is pregnant with his child.]]

[[folder: Marcus Flaherty]]
Rain, Aiken, and Kellen's father.

'''Associated tropes'''

* TheGhost: He's only been described here and there, and only seen in dreams and flashbacks, but the impact he's had is clear as day.
