Redundant.
Young wolf Kaala is a mixed-blood wolf, with her mother having taken a mate from outside the Valley. Her littermates are killed because of their birth, but her life is spared by a pair of Greatwolves - a large species of wolves that enforces the rules of the valley and punishes those who do not follow those rules.

* CleverCrows: Ravens are {{tricksters}}. When they're being especially mischievous, they tend to speak in haiku.

Big Badass Wolf is no longer a trope. It has been replaced with an index for Wolf Tropes.
* BigBadassWolf: Any of the adult wolves, but special mention goes to the Greatwolves, since they're almost twice as large as a regular wolf. ** They may be a reference to the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dire_wolf prehistoric dire wolves]], if not a fictional version of the actual animal. ** Also qualifies as a {{Foreshadowing}} GeniusBonus. Seeing all the similarities between them, it will come as no surprise to biology buffs [[spoiler: that the Greatwolves are going extinct.]] They know this, and are desperately looking for a way to prevent it.

* FantasticNamingConvention: Both wolves and humans have name patterns. Normal wolves' names have a double letter in them - Kaala, Rissa, Trevegg, etc. Greatwolves' names end in -dru or -dra, as an homage to their ancestor, Indru. Humans have compound names such as [=TaLi=] and [=MikLan=]; the last half signifies their gender and which tribe they are from (for example, [=TaLi=]'s tribe is the Lin tribe, so all males have the ending "Lin" and all females have the ending "Li").

When the opportunity is offered, she refuses because it would go against the Promise and it's just wrong. He repays her by [[spoiler:killing [=TaLi=]'s grandmother and framing the wolves for it]].

He shows her a memory of him first making the Promise, and he has yellow eyes in the memory; therefore, silver eyes represents the spirit world.

* LegacyCharacter: The ravens have a special raven called the Nejakilakin that is born whenever there is need, who can travel between life and death and can see the memories of others. [[spoiler: Tlitoo is the current generation's Nejakilakin, but he doesn't like it when other ravens call him that by name - even "Neja" bothers him.]]

Nejakilakin can travel in the spirit world alone, but he cannot view memories without Moonwolf, and Moonwolf cannot go into the spirit world without Nejakilakin.

** Also, all humans have weirdly typed compound names such as [=TaLi=] and [=MikLan=]. Perhaps some of each parent's name composes half of their child's name?
