* Raziel assumes that Kain is jealous/furious that he was the first vampire to grow wings, and that is why he was thrown into the vortex to die. But watch Kain's face: it's not anger, it's ''realization''. He's [[IDidWhatIHadToDo doing what he needs to do]] in order for Raziel to meet his fate as the edge of the coin toss, and there's even a very mild hint of sadness in his expression when he orders Raziel cast into the whirlpool.

* In SR2 the scene in William's chapel where the 2 Soul Reavers, the physical one and the one bound to Raziel try to force Raziel to kill Kain, [[spoiler:it's the two insane souls of Raziel trying DESPERATELY to kill Kain in a ultimately futile attempt to avoid becoming trapped in the Reaver as they do at the end of the game.]]

* So Raziel is repeatedly said to be the only character in the series to have free will, and thus every player in the GambitPileup wants to manipulate him for this reason, because everyone else is locked into a specific fate and wants to change it. Then it struck me 'why' he is the only person to have free will. Consider how time travel works in this universe; it is, ostensibly, [[YouCantFightFate immutable]], except in rare circumstances when two or more of the same object or person exists at the same time in the same location. Raziel spends almost the entire series walking around with his ''future soul stuck on his arm''! Of course he has free will, he's a walking point of mutable time in the continuum.

** The vampires who were pregnant most likely either had miscarriages or stillborn children, no doubt due to the Elder God's getting angry at them for not being able to die anymore and deciding not to let any more souls become immortal. There wasn't anything that said they stopped aging, it just said they were cursed with immortality; though it is rather curious that the remaining vampires waited until the human guardians were mature adults before turning them into vampires.

** There's a difference between aging and developing. Aging is the process of the body becoming weaker and less efficient over time - skin losing elasticity, internal organs losing effectiveness etc. Development and growth from infant to adult is unrelated, hence the existence of conditions that result in rapid aging - but not growth and development - among children.

*** Kain is using the blood reaver from the sarafan age that he pulled out of raziel at the end of SR2, not Williums sword, only the empty reaver absorbs raziel, Williams soul reaver would not. After the end of defiance kain now has to go back and make sure William gets the sword and that it later appears in Avernus

** There's a bit of Twelve Monkeys logic here; Kain couldn't do that because he didn't do that. One of the most notable aspects of Kain's behavior throughout ''Soul Reaver'' and ''Soul Reaver 2'' is that he's essentially working off script. Kain knows what he's supposed to do when he's supposed to do it and goes through with it because that's what destiny says he does. It's not until ''Defiance'' that you see how Kain acts without knowing what's going to happen ahead of time, as by this point the script has been shredded, burned, and replaced with a whole new play right in the middle of the third act.

**** It's actually debatable whether or not Kain was lying when he offered Sebastian mercy; despite his strict honesty, throughout the series people suspect or believe Kain is lying simply because he's ''[[MagnificentBastard Kain]]''. It's likely he knew Sebastian was dying of his injuries anyway and didn't want to waste time arguing the point. It's worth mentioning that Kain doesn't make a move to finish Sebastian off, he simply lets him expire from the wounds he sustained during the fight(most of them being his own damn fault, anyway).
