Many of those lower rankings are gotten through being born of an unapproved union, like infidelity or relations with someone not Amn.

* MoralityKitchenSink: Each book reveals more and more about characters who seemed to have been established as bad, good, or grey. In the second book, Itempas becomes much more sympathetic; in the third, we learn that the BigBad was created by a cruel decision of Enefa's (who had previously been presented as, though imperfect, the best of the Three) and that, for all his hatred of what Itempas did during the Gods' War, Sieh was actually a major cause of said war due to his thoughtlessness and dismissive stance on mortals. Also, it's accepted that as evil as the Arameri were, they are kind of necessary to keep the world from descending into an all-way war.

That, combined with his mortal lover murdering their son while he was still weakened, drove him to do what he did prior to ''The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms''- murdering Enefa because when it was just him and Nahadoth, he was never alone.]] And then there's [[spoiler: Deka in the third book, who basically invented/discovered a new kind of magic, inked it on his own body, and is quite willing to rearrange the universe just so he can have Sieh.

* TheChurch: The Itempan Church, led by hateful priestess Shahar Arameri, used the Enefadeh to completely reshape the world after the gods' war. It collects taxes, provides extensive social services (universal primary education, food and housing for the disabled, public sanitation, etc.), and imposes a theological injunction against the chaos of war. The Church, with the guidance of the Arameri family, gave the world an unprecedented 2,000 years of stability and prosperity -- on the backs of the enslaved Enefadeh, and after crushing local religious traditions.
