** Also Miriam and Aaron: Miriam wears red and is warm and kind, passionately faithful in her belies and very direct and straightfoward in her manner, while Aaron wears blue and is more sensible and cautious, often trying to shield her from the consequences of her behaviour or keeping her out of trouble when she tries to intervene.

* BigOlEyebrows: Almost everyone. Jethro is the most prominent though.

to:

* BigOlEyebrows: Almost everyone. Jethro is the most prominent though. Averted with Rameses and most of the Egyptian royalty and nobility, who have thin, drawn-on eyebrows; this is historically justified, since ancient Egyptian priests and upper classes shaved and plucked almost their entire bodies.


Added DiffLines:

** This is also historically justified; ancient Egyptian priests, nobility and upper classes in general shaved and plucked their entire bodies, which marks Moses out as an outsider from the very beginning: he has short hair under his wig, a small beard, and natural eyebrows.

* BlessedWithSuck: Moses comes to view being chosen by God as this, as he is forced to be the instrument of destruction, pain and death, not to mention he has to go against the man he sees as a brother.

** One interesting thing to notice is that all divine beings are represented by white, and the Pharaoh dresses entirely in white. The Pharaoh is meant to be a god to Egyptians.

* MortonsFork: Rameses, in his desire to avoid being the "weak link" his father dismissed him as. On one hand, if he frees the Hebrews, he'll go down in time as the king who willingly gave away the main source of labor on which Egypt's power and overall magnificence greatly depends. On the other hand, if he fights to keep the Hebrews as slaves, Egypt is destroyed by God and the plagues. Either way, he, his legacy, and his dynasty's legacy, are completely fucked. Although, given that history remembers him as "the great" and his reign marks the absolute pinnacle of Egypt's power, authority and glory, maybe he doesn't do ''too'' badly, though of course he doesn't know this at the time.

* TechnicianVersusPerformer: The Moses vs. Hotep and Huy "snake duel" has shades of this. When summoning their snakes, the priests use a big theatrical musical number complete with a ''lot'' of smoke and mirrors (literally); Moses, by contrast, just trusts in God, puts down his staff, and ''voila''! Instant snake. Moses ends up winning.
