** Of course, the Elder God seems to have a degree of omniscience and if it had discovered Kain's plan to essentially trick it into reanimating Raziel, it never would have done it in the first place. He kept his intentions hidden from Raziel to keep them hidden from the Elder God too. It was ironically the EG's own creation of Raziel as such a powerful servant that lead to it's downfall.

* During Raziel's descent into the watery abyss that originally destroyed his body, he screams for the first few moments but then appears to stop quickly, which is merciful to the viewer and makes things seem considerably less horrific. Meanwhile, however, he narrates his "timeless" agony and says his torment only "receded" much later. It only just dawned on me years later that the only reason he wasn't screaming the whole time ' is because his lower jaw comes off early in his fall '. Imagine burning in what basically amounts to "magical acid" for two thousand years, [[IHaveNoMouthAndIMustScream and you can't even scream in pain]]. Wow.

** 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.

* 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.
