!! Kellen and Aiken
Rain's older brother and sister.

'''Associated tropes'''

* CainAndAbel: Aiken was the Cain to Rain's Abel at first, but after some soul searching and a JerkassRealization, he's no longer this. Kellen on the other hand has seemingly irrevocably become the Cain after cutting Rain's hair in her sleep. Rain refuses to have anything to do with the older sister and Kellen in turn tells her that she considers her embarrassing to be around.
* HalfIdenticalTwins: Averted. Kellen looks more similar to Rain than Aiken.
* TookALevelInKindness: Aiken was initially a transphobic {{Jerkass}} who left his fiancee and refused to accept Rain. After a [[JerkassRealization realization]] and a ton of research on the subject, he's now become one of Rain's biggest supporters, even calling her "baby sis," and wants to patch things over with Jessica.

Jessica and Rain's therapist.

'''Associated tropes'''
* NewOldFlame: Dated Fara prior to his transition.

* ThereAreNoTherapists: '''Averted''', obviously. Talk therapy is a critical part of transition, and the series doesn't shy away from showing the good and the bad of the process.
* {{Transsexual}}: Previously known as Vivian. Rain never guessed.

An old friend of Gavin and Rain.

'''Associated tropes'''
