Kubera Leez is a happy-go-lucky girl who has never left her isolated village for all of her life. Everything changes on her 16th birthday and she gets taken in by the unfriendly mage Asha.A fantasy/action Korean Webtoon about the ordeals and destiny of a girl with the name of a God. Names of deities and elements of Hindu Mythology were borrowed to create a distinctive and original fantasy setting. It is being serialized here in Korean. The author's blog is routinely updated with new information about the world and the characters; it contains major spoilers for those who have not caught up with the story yet.
Provides examples of:
The Ace: Asha — on the surface, at least, to all who know of her.
Broken Ace: What's really going on. It comes with a price, and may have a source that is includes a hefty price-tag which could well take out practically everybody around her she even remotely comes to cares about. Yet, she is willing to do this. For revenge.
Actually, I Am Him: Gandharva is looking for the Priestess of Chaos to kill her. She just happens to be Teo Rakan, the person who took him in as he tried to infiltrate Kalibloom and furthermore the only human he ever sympathized with.
Black Hole Belly: Yuta. Special mention goes to Season 2 Chapter 9, where he seems to absorb vaporized blood.
Broken Bird: Given all she's gone through, it's surprising that Leez can remain so cheerful. When the facade cracks it's sad to watch. And according to the real Kubera, things are only going to get worse for her.
Asha may also be a candidate... but, it's rather hard to tell under the tough shell she wears. Teo was broken at one point, but seems to have put herself back together. And, makes a habit of trying to do that with others. Say... by adopting waifs and strays.
Bullying a Dragon: Half-bloods suffer terrible prejudices despite their sometimes amazing powers. We later discover it's at least partially justified by the fact that half-bloods are influenced by the mental state of the leader of the sura tribe they inherit from; during the Cataclysm, this made them all go on horrifically murderous rampages, so nobody trusts them today.
Anybody who picks on Yuta thinking he's a "normal Half" or any poor Sura that jumps on him thinking it's just scored a meal finds they've just done this instead. Or, tried Mugging the Monster.
Creator Cameo: The author's Currygom character (an orange, curry-colored bear) makes multiple appearances in random roles. See here for a glimpse at every appearance during season 1.
Curtains Match the Window: Most of the main characters. Leez has teal hair and green eyes; Asha has light gray-blue hair and blue-gray eyes. Word Of Godsays most humans have matching hair and eye colors.
Divine Parentage: While the details of the matter have yet to be revealed to the readers, (spoilers for Chapter 90 and beyond) one of Yuta's parents is, or was, a goddess.
Dramatic Irony: When Tao looks up information on Gandharva, the book goes on for ages about a lot of meaningless statistics and history which have no relevance to the plot; it also mentions, in a footnote, that Gandharva has a daughter who is so weak and unimportant that even her name is not recorded. Of course, since in the present day all of Gandharva's actions are centered around the hope that she might be alive, the reader knows that Gandharva's daughter is in fact the single most important part of his biography.
Dual Age Modes: Gods and Nastika (top Sura) can change the age of their appearance at will.
Fangirl: In-universe example. Asha collects the breed like stamps wherever she goes. Whether she wants to or not. Brillith has a few herself. And, quite a few of the Fanboy variety. It's hinted that any Priest/ess or top-grade magician gets a following. Possibly even Claus.
Fantastic Racism: Against "Halves" who have more than 50% sura ancestry. The "Quarters", who have 25%~50% sura ancestry, are treated equally as humans. It's eventually revealed that the reason for it is because Halves are affected by the mindset of the leader of the Sura tribe they inherit from, to the point where it can totally override their personality in extreme situations. During the Cataclysm every single Half went on a horrifically murderous rampage as a result.
The Neutral Bow was shown in Season 1 chapter 64, more than 40 chapters (and nearly a year and half in real-life serialization) before it was introduced in the story.
Also, way back in the very first chapter, someone mentions how they were disappointed that Rao Leez's only child was a daughter, since they thought it meant the world missed out on another great warrior; but were satisfied when they saw Kubera Leez's great strength. A copy of Rao Leez's book is also shown within the first few panels. Just how great and famous a warrior Leez's father was, though, isn't revealed for over a hundred chapters.
All of the gods have a power called insight which allows them to read human minds and see their futures. Almost every time Leez meets a god, they have some insight about her future, foreshadowing the overall plot; most of these, unfortunately, are of what seems to be a Bad Future.
Functional Magic: The power of the magic that humans use is borrowed from the gods (devas).
Future Badass: What brief hints we've gotten of Leez's future is she's going to become somebody to be reckoned with.
Power Limiter: The Golden Knight bracelet Leez ends up with is a combination of this and an Upgrade Artifact; when it's turned off, it drains her strength (though she's still noticeably stronger than a normal human), but when it's activated, it enhances it.
Really 700 Years Old: deities and high-ranking suras maintain a youthful appearance. Yuta, who looks 12~13 years old, is at least 300 years old, while his elder half-brother Maruna is more than 1000 years old but looks like a late-teen. Considering that the nastika adults treat him like a child says much about how old they are.
Among high-ranking sura, your developmental stage seems to be considered more important than your age in years; it's also what determines how physically old you appear.
Revenge: What motivates both Asha and Leez. It remains to be seen whether their goals will be achieved, and how.
One of the futures Agni sees when using Insight on Leez implies that she will eventually decide that there was never really anything for her to seek revenge for in the first place — though she doesn't seem at all happy about it. Although it's unknown if that future will actually come about.
Screw the Rules, I Have Connections!: Asha has such good connections that she can literally murder people who she finds morally offensive and have it written off as a magical accident.
Smug Snake: Riche. Dear gods, Riche: she just oozes self-congratulatory slime. She and any Item and/or Half-hunter/ trader, basically, could qualify simply down to their Moral Myopia. Claude is... a debatable case. He could be: doing what he did to Leez wasn't particularly nice. Or, well thought out. Sagara is probably an example herself (as well as a literal example). Time will tell, however, just how many of the boxes she does tick.
Supernaturally Delicious and Nutritious: Taraka asserts that Leez is this to Yuta. Worryingly, this gets semi-confirmation when he later spots Gandharva in circumstances that could mimic what she described: only his epic self-control meant he didn't act on it.
The Faceless: Done in several ways. Characters are shown as their full silhouettes long before they are properly introduced within the story. Panels that tell a story within the story usually feature the charactes with their faces in shadow. Minor characters are often drawn with their eyes hidden under their bangs multiple times before they are truly introduced to the audience. Future and past visions depict the characters from the back. But the most egregious instance of this trope is Haas Rehn, who is drawn as a blue stick figure in most of his appearances.
The Stoic: Asha: by reputation and much of the time you see her. But, "Mister" has her beaten... and, has done so for a long, long time.
Not So Stoic: Both, however, very occasionally show this side, too. As little as they can possibly get away with, though.
Stepford Smiler: Leez. For all her ditziness and cheer, she's actually very broken by watching everyone she knew die.
Unskilled, but Strong: Leez has never been to school and didn't study magic, but her punches can send a grown man flying, and she can break walls in her sleep. It is mentioned several times that her full strength will easily kill a normal person, but she has been lucky so far that everyone she's been with so far have been tough enough to handle it.
Unusual Ears: Seen on some halves and human forms of Sura. Elwin has bunny ears, Shuri has fox ears, Maruna has ...feathery flappy ear..thingies?
Voluntary Shapeshifting: The higher ranks of Sura are capable of shapeshifting between their Sura and humanoid forms. Some "Halves" are also capable of transforming to a Sura form.
Morphic Resonance: Sura in human form and Halves have a part of their body that retain Sura characteristics.
What Measure Is a Non-Human?: All magicians in the series have no qualms about killing Sura; the racists have no qualms about killing Halves.
Word Of God also explains that Maruna regards humans as humans would treat ants, but he considers Halves to be Sura, and treats them accordingly.
You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Asha has blue hair, Kubera has green. The rest of the rainbow is on the heads of the rest of humanity.
