Clergy of Artemicia
- Adela al-Jamila bint Meher al-Saif
- "Admit it, you've lost!"
- Becoming the Mask: In her past she adopted the persona of a ruthless and cunning warrior to have others' respect and to cast aside the weak girl she once was. This worked all too well with a few demons' guidance, and she's now grown so accustomed to her act that there's little left of the meek, shy girl she once was.
- Broken Bird: Ultimately shown to be this once her past is revealed.
- Driven by Envy: She became envious of Razia when Belial chose Razia over her. This led her to murder Razia and exile Khalid.
- Evil Aunt: To Khalid.
- Evil Twin: To her twin sister Razia...although in the distant past they used to be close friends.
- God Save Us From The Sultana: She's the head of the sultante during the Vanna storyline and is not a nice person.
- High Priest: She is the high cleric of the Clergy of Artemicia.
- Lady of War: She looks fragile but is very powerful thanks to her sorcery and mastery of the scimitars.
- Love Makes You Evil: As mentioned above, her mad love for Belial drove her to desperate actions and began her path to evil. Sadly she and Belial never get to meet after Khalid's exile.
- Murder the Hypotenuse: She kills her twin sister Razia in order to get closer to Belial. When Belial found out about his lover's death, he was not amused.
- Pet the Dog: Her interactions with Arcturius show that she does have a soft spot for children, especially when children have gone through emotional abuse which reminds her of her own childhood.
- Royals Who Actually Do Something: She's a sultana and can kick your ass anytime. There's a reason why the Sarquil males let women rule over them, after all...
- The Usurper: She killed her twin sister and took over the throne of Vanna while also forcing her nephew to go into exile.
- Woman Scorned: Belial really shouldn't have dissed her in favour of her twin sister. Hell hath no fury...
- Unithien Earthhaven
- "I want to become a better mage. I was weak, and I almost lost my mother because of that. I won't let it happen again!"
- Anguished Declaration of Love: Ends up finally confessing her feelings to Nesa in a very dramatic manner despite Nesa's girlfriend Rhylian being present. Ashamed by what she's done but also relieved that she finally managed to pour her heart out, she flees from the scene to leave the Alliance behind for good and join her mother's side.
- Beneath the Mask: There's a darker side to Unithien beneath her pleasant exterior, and she does her best to keep herself in check by acting polite and mainly focusing on helping others. However, when push comes to shove and she goes through one traumatic experience too many when she believes her mother has been killed, she finally comes to accept the darkness within her and turns much more jaded and ruthless while lashing out at those who have hurt her and her friends.
- Break the Cutie: She goes through many of these moments, losing several friends in the war, being unable to have a relationship with Nesa due to him already being with Rhylian, her reunion with her once abusive father, and finally the moment where she thinks Gilgamesh has killed her mother. She finally can't take it anymore so she gives into her darker impulses and decides to right wrongs in a new way which involves her becoming much more ruthless and unforgiving as a result.
- A Darker Me: Hinted at during various moments. Her darkness while in Alent's central ziggurat draws Refan to nearly kiss her much to their confusion. She later takes on a much more seductive persona to catch Refan who is running loose in Alent, and this change in attitude doesn't go unnoticed by her companions who wonder if Unithien has been repressing her true self under a kind and polite exterior all along. She lashes out against her deadbeat father once she sees him again, revealing that she's hidden the pain caused by his abuse all these years although and may not be able to forgive him even when he asks for it. After she returns from Devilfish Strait and confronts her enemy Persephone again, she outright rejects the offer to join Persephone and decides to murder the necromancer on the spot in cold blood so that Persephone's lies won't hurt anyone else ever again, an act that catches both Persephone and Varalia off guard.
- Deal with the Devil: She ends up making a deal with Artemicia, Goddess of Healing, and switches sides from Cardia to her as long as the goddess saves her mother and her companions from a certain demise. Artemicia agrees to the terms but reminds Unithien that breaking an oath with her will have consequences should she ever attempt to betray her new clergy.
- Half-Human Hybrid: She's a half-elf.
- Gone Horribly Right: The Totenkopfs wish to use the power the Beacon of Alent bestowed on Unithien by slowly awakening her darkness. They eventually succeed and with horrific results as Unithien, while still considering herself good, will no longer hold her emotions in check and will ruthlessly kill anyone she sees as a sinner.
- Hero-Worshipper: Unithien is awed whenever she sees Ferron, the high cleric of her faith, in person, and she considers him one of the wisest men in the world and a truly great leader who inspires his clergy through his actions. However, Ferron is in fact a Villain with Good Publicity who is good at manipulating his cleric underlings such as Unithien who still hasn't realized Ferron's true character. She eventually grows out of this mindset and comes to see Ferron as he really is, becoming a lot more jaded as a result.
- Important Haircut: Unithien cuts her hair and starts dressing in less robe-y clothes, which signifies her growth into a more determined woman. Despite this she still can't put aside a few things which have dominated her life such as her basically worshipping high cleric Ferron, but she's slowly getting better at becoming more and more independent.
- Mad Scientist's Beautiful Daughter: Unithien is the daughter of Varalia, one of the prominent villainesses. She grew up apart from her mother when they were separated in her youth. Eventually they found themselves on opposite sides but recognized each other instantly during one conflict where their parties met, but this reunion surprised other heroes who weren't expecting such a connection between the two. Both love each other dearly, but they also lament the fact that they're working for each other's enemies and can't reconcile each other's opposing beliefs. This fact troubles Unithien greatly, and she wonders if there's any way she can find a way to live a normal life with her mother in the war-torn world.
- Meaningful Rename: After having used the name Unithien Greyrain for so long, she finally acknowledges that she really is her mother's daughter and takes on her mother's surname Earthhaven to signify this. It coincides with her revealing a far darker and more ruthless persona.
- The Medic: Her role is primarily that of a healer, and she's proud of all the lives she's saved.
- Combat Medic: She becomes a lot more ruthless after her mind's been broken one time too many and becomes active on the battlefield, using her white magic as a weapon to destroy any she considers to be sinners.
- Morality Adjustment: She turns from a nice, shy person who tries to keep her emotions in check into a downright ruthless mage who will dispose of anyone who threatens the weak or those she cares about.
- Unresolved Sexual Tension: With Nesa and Refan. Although she's attracted to Nesa for several reasons, she doesn't act it out because he already has a girlfriend. She feels she can better help Nesa succeed in his mission by staying friends because any relationship would only complicate their friendship further. Ultimately, when abandoning the Alliance, she does confess her feelings to Nesa with a tearful goodbye while Rhylian is present to witness it, and she flees from the scene afterwards. She's also confused about her feelings for Refan, partly because his demonic charisma draws her to him for reasons she can't explain but foreshadows the darkness within her.
- White Magic: She excels at casting above average white magic spells.
- "The Alliance are not the only people in the world with ideals. We shall fight for an empire, just how all empires have been forged in the past."
- Ambition Is Evil: He was a skilled warrior who wished to take over the throne of Sanae for himself. He ends up exiled as a result.

- Bodyguard Betrayal: He is betrayed by his bodyguard Caliban who hands him over to a group of Totenkopfs.

- Black Magic: He's a very skilled black mage.
