* PolarOppositeTwins: One just has to compare their character bio's images to realize how different she is from Ember. Ariel has her bamboo field cut down and the swords are broken, showing her recklessness and disregard for consecuences. Ariel's Wayfarer mask is on the ground and far from her but she has an active Lodestone right behind her to demostrate her alliance with her Spirit and that being part of the Wayfarers is mostly for the satisfaccion of getting back at the Academists.
* SheWhoFightsMonsters: Ariel has a strong sense of justice, but justice to her is the Wayfarers causing mayhem to get back at the Academists; her habit of seeing only the little picture doesn't let her consider consecuences like innocent people getting caught in the crossfire of her actions, like when she detonated the magical bomb in the middle of a street.
* SiblingRivalry: needles Ember constantly, trying to get the Wayfarers to take a more active role.

to:

* YouCantGoHomeAgain: [[spoiler:After Chapter 7, they can no longer return to their ordinary lives.]]



* OrphanageOfLove: She appears to run one for Orphic children. PlayedForDrama though, as she riskes her name and reputation in doing so and has to be careful of not being seen as "too sympathetic" and keep it as just an philantropic act, despite how much she actually cares for the children under her wing.

to:

** When Imogen is missing for a day, she openly states that she hopes she stays missing.


* TheGardener: She likes gardening and she takes care of the greenhouse at the top of the Torstenn manor like her mother used to. She's not particularly ''good'' at it, but it's mentioned that outside of the Wickwold forest, '''nothing''' grows in the city so she has a reason to be proud for keeping even a few plants alive.


* [[RasputinTheMadMonk The Rasputin]]: He fills the role, if not necessarily the archetype, in keeping with the Llyn parallels with the Romanovs. He got the Empress' good grace promising to find a way to help her family's crisis and his first tries on Academic magic were considered tricks meant to entertain the royals; all this was a curtain for his coup plans.

The tone could be explained with the differences in lighting, but it's unlikely her hair would have grown out in [[http://www.blindsprings.com/comic/blindsprings-page-three-hundred-and-thirty-four about a week]].
