** In [[http://www.skindeepcomic.com/archive/illumination-3-page-14/ this]] strip, Michelle shows herself to the elders that she is a sphinx... Madame U's reaction shot is her sitting there, because she had been established as blind earlier.
** Ravi reveals [[spoiler: that the Finn curse was a gift he put in that enables some people in the line to use magic]] and then [[spoiler: criticises the family for being unaware that it was a gift and was more of a CursedWithAwesome, then lectures them as if they are children for not properly comprehending what he tasked Phineas's line with centuries ago]]. Naturally, the family gets ''quite'' annoyed with this and respond ''exactly'' the way you would expect them to in that situation.

**Michelle finally displays true magic pants in Illuminations Chapter 2: her pants disappear when she enters her full form and reappear as part of her her first true mid-form, which is essentially her human form with her sphinx form's wings, paws and neck. It's still just her pants, though: her shirt appears unaffected, though.

* CursedWithAwesome: Jim's 'curse' is that his hair is green, grows back instantly when cut and he is quite a bit taller than normal (7'2" in human form, and correspondingly oversized in fullform). The curse seems to run in his family, but has no negative effects whatsoever; he seems to enjoy the green hair.

* MagicPants: Clothes get magically "stored" somewhere whenever one of the Masquerade assumes their fully mythical form. So far Michelle's shirt has been the only exception, as it does not disappear in full form. (she has yet to develop a midform) so she has to wear a shirt cut to accommodate her wings. Eyeglasses seem to work inconsistently too: Merial discards hers when she transforms, but Jim's father's get stored along with his clothes. According to WordOfGod different types of medallions offer different levels of MagicPants because the spells vary and each medallion is effectively hand crafted.

** Just because angels have to do the right thing doesn't mean Gabe has to be pleasant about it, or set a good example otherwise. If anything Gabe tends to be a good example of bad behaviors when not actually battling demons.

* InTheBlood: The Finn's heroic ancestor Phineas the Red appears in a flashback arc. Amusingly he's an irreverent lackadaisical "Town Clown" -- just like Jim.



* ItsAllAboutMe: Michelle spends the first few weeks after her tranformation as a one girl pity party until Jim not-so-gently reminds her to pull her head out of her ass by asking if she'd even noticed that Greg and Merial have problems too.

** Leah Tanno is Japanese, but as her gryphon form combines two North American animals (peregrin falcon and bobcat) her gryphon ancestor (who could have been dozens of generations of "false humans" back) must have been a gaijin. While she hasn't complained about overt discrimination back home she still moved to England because [[InternalizedCategorism she never felt like she fit in back in Japan]].
