* ChildProdigy: Jibril mastered silent magic at a young age. Deconstructed: being able to use it before she reached full emotional maturity probably led to her emotion development being hampered at a critical stage of her life.



** Finally, if they had survived the Cataclysm, they would occupied different extremes of the new social pyramid: Jibril, as a priestess and a summoner, would have become one of Willarv's leaders, while Hana, as a half that went berserk, would have suffered horrendous persecution.
* LackOfEmpathy: [[spoiler: Implied. According to her childhood friend Laila, Jibril was skilled in silent magic, which is known to numb the user's feelings; supposedly, Jibril's were so numb that she saw people and the background as the same. She seemed to have kept some feelings, however, as she stated to Laila that she wished her daughter would never learn silent magic.]]

Added DiffLines:

* StrongFamilyResemblance: [[https://kubera.fandom.com/wiki/File:3-007_young_Jibril.png Take a look at how she looked like when she was young]]. Brilith didn't inherit her looks from her father's side of the family.

Added DiffLines:

* RevengeBeforeReason: ''Yes''. Leez simply cannot let go of her need for vengeance, not even after learning that her target is Yuta's brother - [[spoiler:she would rather erase the memory than giving up.]] As Chandra himself states in season three (ep 3-73/358):
-->'''Chandra''': If I entrust it[[note]]The Eye of Perishment[[/note]] to Leez, she'll probably die rather than let Maruna develop.
** Eventually subverted [[spoiler:in regards to Maruna. After learning the truth about her village, she gives up on killing him entirely]]; that doesn't mean she likes him, though. It seems that this is still played straight when it comes to [[spoiler:Asha]].

** To Shakuntala as well. See well:
*** Both are kind-hearted, self-sacrificial, and green-haired girls that grew up close to their mothers, and ended up losing them at a young age.
*** Both disliked being treated differently because of their fathers: Leez hates when people are kind to
her entry.simply for being [[TheAce "Rao Leez's]] daughter", Shakuntala refused join the strongest Gandharvas in seeking refuge among the Garudas, as she didn't felt that she deserved to live when others didn't just because she was the king's daughter.
*** Both were doomed to live short lives, but for different reasons: Shakuntala had a weak body and had no control over the circumstances of the environment that continuously poisoned her, [[spoiler:while the reason Leez will die in her twenties is heavily implied to be her use of the Idha Etu spell as a child]].
*** Shakuntala didn't inherit the power of her tremendously powerful parents; on the other hand, Leez, the daughter of two strong fighters, is becoming more and more powerful by the day.
*** Both have GenerationXerox and StrongFamilyResemblance with one of their parents, but Shakuntala has it with Menaka and Leez with Rao.
*** Both have strong feelings for Maruna - Shakuntala sees him as a dear childhood friend, Leez despises him the most out of all characters.
*** Finally, both Leez and Shakuntala ended up as a member of father-daughter pair in which one of them went missing - but Leez never met her father, while Shakuntala is the one that disappeared.

Added DiffLines:

* StrongFamilyResemblance: His identical twin sons Kan and Ten are basically shorter, rounder versions of him.

Added DiffLines:

* FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling: Plays with this trope when it comes to Claude. On one hand, Airi is the more action-oriented, brash sibling, while Claude is cunning (and somewhat unnerving). On the other hand, despite both siblings being [[BrilliantButLazy various degrees of lazy]], Airi seems to take her duties far more seriously than her brother Claude does- at least she ''shows up'' to the job.


Added DiffLines:

* FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling: With Airi. See her entry.


* {{Fangirl}}: Mildly, for Kasak. She expresses an interest in meeting him, as the famous sole dragon Half, and after she does, she then wants the chance to see his dragon form. Considering they go on to be FireForgedFriends, she becomes something of an AscendedFangirl.



* {{Foil}}: Just like their daughters are [[{{Foil}} Foils]] to each other, Menaka and Anna also serve as this for one another. Both have green hair, which their daughters inherited. Both are skilled fighters that married someone even more powerful than them. Both died well before their time: Menaka, who was supposed to live forever, died a few centuries before the Cataclysm due to Kali's trickery, whereas Anna wasn't even 40 when Maruna attacked [[spoiler:(and, if Clary is correct and she died in N5, then she wasn't even in her 30s)]]. Both have mysterious pasts - as seen in MysteriousParent below, we know very little about Anna's; Menaka's was revealed, but we know next to nothing about Anna. Both mothered a girl whose physical appearance greatly resembles one of her parents, but with the parent reversed. Said children also ended up in dire circumstances after losing their mothers, and didn't have a father there to help them when they needed the most. Both cared for people with completely different backgrounds from theirs. [[note]]As stated above, Anna had several half-sura friends, while Menaka was deeply disturbed by [[OmnicidalManiac Gandharva's antics]] regarding humanity.[[/note]] Both ended up in surprising marriages - as stated in her profile, Menaka and Gandharva started with BelligerentSexualTension, while Rao was so uninterested in women that no one believes he and Anna ever got married.

* CovertPervert: She has to present a [[TheWomanWearingTheQueenlyMask pure image as a Priestess]], scolds Agni for reading erotica, and gets extremely embarrassed at any physical affection--but if Agni's use of insight is to be believed, she's had quite a few dirty thoughts about him...

* {{Foil}}: To Hana Lehn. Both outlived their husbands, and were outlived by their children, who were initially weaker than them, but that eventually rose to surpass them with the same rare skills they had (relating to their special connection with a powerful nonhuman). Both died around the time of the Cataclysm, but in very different circumstances: Jibril died fighting suras, Hana went berserk and attacked her own family. Both had failed marriages due to emotional distance between them and their husbands. However, they were at opposite ends in their respective situations: Jibril rarely spent her time around Talith, her husband, due to her stunted emotions. Hana, on the other hand, felt Tan was getting farther and farther away from her as he aged and she didn't. Both heavily impacted their children as they grew up, even long after their deaths. Finally, if they had survived the Cataclysm, they would occupied different extremes of the new social pyramid: Jibril, as a priestess and a summoner, would have become one of Willarv's leaders, while Hana, as a half that went berserk, would have suffered horrendous persecution.

* {{Foil}}: To Brilith. Both are the unconventionally talented children of conventionally talented mothers, who are [[{{Foil}} Foils]] for each other. Both were left deeply marked by their deaths, and carry those marks well into adulthood. Both have someone they knew from their younger days that they admire, but at the same time feel inferior towards - Lutz to Ran, Asha to Brilith- and yet eventually rise to the top of the magicians' food chain in Willarv. Both end up having very negative feelings towards Asha; however, while Ran was exposed to her abusive behavior towards Leez over an extended period of time, [[spoiler:Brilith's friendship was brutally crushed over a single moment when Asha attacked her in Aeroplateau]]. Brilith grows more ruthless and colder over time - Ran maintains a firm emotional and moral compass throughout the story. Both are, at least at first, [[ObliviousToLove completely unaware of the true depth of the feelings their eventual love interests have for them]], but while Ran's relationship with Rana is successful after he finally gets it, [[LadyAndKnight Brilith's relationship with Agni]] [[OneTrueLove only worsens when]] [[ReincarnationRomance she finally realizes it]]. Finally, both have a close family member as one of their city's priests, but while Ran is adored by his uncle and only agreed to become the Priest of Water after Rana insisted on it, Brilith felt distant from her mother and avidly succeeded her as Priestess of Fire.

* {{Foil}}: To Asha. Both are talented, popular, and handsome magicians whose rank doesn't reveal their true skills. Both have a younger person that looks up to them, but while Lutz is a loving elder brother towards Ran, Asha is painfully abusive towards Leez. Both also are AlwaysSomeoneBetter to another (Lutz to Ran, Asha to Brilith). However, Lutz treasures his brother, while Asha had no qualms in destroying her friendship with Brilith. They are also somewhat related to massive mental health issues said people have.

Both have contrasting relationships with Saha and Lorraine.[[note]]Lutz being Saha's ally and someone who called Lorraine out on her deception; Asha and Saha being enemies and Asha being the one to deceive Lorraine.[[/note]] Speaking of Lorraine, her disappearance at some point put both of their goals in jeopardy: Lutz, who had slacked off in his magical exams so as to not move away from Ran, was forced to become Priest of Creation after she ran away, while Asha's [[spoiler:plan of stealing Ananta's power]] suffered from Lorraine's interference in a crucial moment.

* {{Foil}}: To Hana Lehn. Both have very special powers that aren't often seen in those of human heritage (Jibril had a divine affinity of over 10,000, Hana was implied to be able to use fiendish magic). Both outlived their husbands, and were outlived by their children - [[spoiler:and it's heavily implied that they were responsible for their spouses' deaths]]. Both mothered children that were initially weaker than them, but that eventually rose to surpass them with the same rare skills they had (Brilith managed to summon a god just like her mother had, Ran inherited his mysterious talents from his mother). Both died around the time of the Cataclysm, but in very different circumstances: Jibril died fighting suras, Hana went berserk and attacked her own family. Both had failed marriages due to emotional distance between them and their husbands. However, they were at opposite ends in their respective situations: Jibril rarely spent her time around Talith, her husband, due to her stunted emotions (thanks to silent magic). Hana, on the other hand, felt Tan was getting farther and farther away from her as he aged and she didn't (she was the first person to say [[ArcWords "Those that live long, love long"]]). Both were in a family where the mother neglected her husband and daughter: Hana and her father were abandoned by Hanuman, whereas Jibril was said to not care for Brilith or for Talith. Both heavily impacted their children as they grew up, even long after their deaths. Both had a connection to an extremely powerful non-human being: Hana was a nastika's daughter, while Jibril summoned a god. Both share their surnames with characters that played major roles in one of the main characters' background: Jibril was a member of the Ajes family, just like Carte's last Priestess of Wind, Trisilla Ajes, who died to ensure that a ship full of survivors (including Asha) arrived safely at Willarv. Hana's surname was Lehn, the same surname of Kaz and Haas, Leez's childhood friends who are implied to know the truth of her past. Finally, if they had survived the Cataclysm, they would occupied different extremes of the new social pyramid: Jibril, as a priestess and a summoner, would have become one of Willarv's leaders, while Hana, as a half that went berserk, would have suffered horrendous persecution.

* {{Foil}}: To Asha. Both are talented magicians whose rank doesn't reveal their true skills. Both were forced to handle a city barrier because the preferred candidate wasn't available. Both are filthy rich and very popular. Both lost their mothers in bloody circumstances. Both are considered attractive, but while Lutz is a {{Bishounen}}, Asha is a {{Bifauxnen}}. Both have a younger person that looks up to them, but while Lutz is a loving elder brother towards Ran, Asha is painfully abusive towards Leez.

Both were once in close contact to Saha On, but Lutz was his ally as fellow priest of Eloth, whereas Asha was one of the people Saha despised the most. Both had a relationship with Lorraine that involved some level of dishonesty: Lutz called her out for leading Saha on despite the fact that she clearly had no intention of ever marrying him, while Asha was Lorraine's DeceptiveDisciple. Speaking of Lorraine, her disappearance at some point put both of their goals in jeopardy: Lutz, who had slacked off in his magical exams so as to not move away from Ran, was forced to become Priest of Creation after she ran away, while Asha's [[spoiler:plan of stealing Ananta's power]] suffered from Lorraine's interference in a crucial moment.

* {{Foil}}: To Asha. Both are talented talented, popular, and handsome magicians whose rank doesn't reveal their true skills.

Both are considered attractive, but while Lutz is a {{Bishounen}}, Asha is a {{Bifauxnen}}.skills. Both have a younger person that looks up to them, but while Lutz is a loving elder brother towards Ran, Asha is painfully abusive towards Leez. Both also have someone that feels somewhat inferior when compared are AlwaysSomeoneBetter to their talent: Ran for Lutz, but for another (Lutz to Ran, Asha it's Brilith.to Brilith). However, Lutz treasures his brother, while Asha had no qualms in destroying her friendship with Brilith. They are also somewhat related to massive mental health issues said people have: Ran have. [[note]]Ran still doesn't accept that he [[spoiler:was responsible for his mother's death]] and believes Lutz's lie that he was, while Brilith at the end of season two went into screaming simply by hearing Asha's name. name.[[/note]] Both were considered smarter than their peers from a young age, but [[spoiler:while Lutz was always a talented magician, Asha originally had almost no magical talent]]. Both are willing to accept the death of others to achieve goals they believe are bigger and more important, but while Lutz thinks of TheNeedsOfTheMany, Asha kills people to further goals that benefit her only. Both were once in close contact to have contrasting relationships with Saha On, but Lutz was his and Lorraine.[[note]]Lutz being Saha's ally as fellow priest of Eloth, whereas Asha was one of the people Saha despised the most.

* BigBadWannabe: Very downplayed in the sense that Asha still presents a very credible threat, but... her character has shades of this. She believes herself to be Visnu's great envoy, the one all his plans were directed to, and the greatest [[TheChessmaster chessmaster]] on the board. The climax of season two completely disabuses her of this notion. [[spoiler:She was implied to be aiming the whole time to capture Ananta's power for her own the moment Sagara ressurrected him. So, she walks into Sagara's lair with the hopes of doing this - and Sagara laughs at her face. It's made then ''very clear'' that a mere human would never be even ''capable'' of this, so big is Ananta's power. She's quick to point to her that the whole time Asha was little more than a pawn, and that her Kubera-killing contributed to Sagara's own plans, not hers. She's so hopelessly outmatched that Sagara doesn't even bother with trying to kill her - which ends up being a mistake, fair enough, as Asha is able to cast ''Hoti Visnu''. However, even this ace in the hole of hers looks more like a child throwing a tantrum than anything else, and doesn't even do that much harm in the end. Yes, Sagara and her allies ended up disappearing for seven years, but Asha herself suffered the same, and now Sagara is back, ready to start everything all over again. All in all, she didn't suffer much damage as much as a setback. Not to mention Lorraine, who was also affected, and returned with the sole goal of avenging Saha. Plus, there is the fact that all of those that were affected by the spell are implied to have been given access to knowledge regarding the future, which was Asha's main strength.]] So yes, it's undeniable how much influence Asha has on the story overall, but it's not nearly as much as she believes. Off course, Currygom being Currygom, this could still be completely turned on its head.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Tsundere}}: Chandra thinks she's towards him. Thing is, [[SubvertedTrope he's wrong]]: Laila truly depises him, [[YouKilledMyFather not only to for killing her master]] [[ButForMeItWasTuesday and being completely unapologetic about it]], [[JerkassGod but also for being his massively arrogant ass of a self]]. [[PunyEarthlings Not to mention the way he treats her]].


*** Even to Asha. Brilith has rather weak calculation skills but was born with a high (2058) divine affinity, while Asha was born with a naturally high intellect, [[spoiler: but originally had a divine affinity so low she couldn't become a magician.]] Both of them were good students who grew up isolated from their peers; Brilith because of her [[LonelyRichKid status as the daughter of a priestess and everyone held her in high regard]], while Asha's peers saw her as [[InsufferableGenius arrogant and cold.]] Even their reasons for becoming good magicians differ; whereas Brilith wanted an A rank to [[WellDoneSonGuy follow in her mother's footsteps]], Asha [[spoiler: wanted to gain power and the means for revenge.]] It's a wonder how they became [[OddFriendship friends]]. Asha even points this out, albeit subtly.

Added DiffLines:

* IntergenerationalFriendship: He and Ran were pretty close when the latter was a child. Slightly subverted in that, due to the fact that Ran is a quarter, they weren't that apart in age as this trope would imply.

Added DiffLines:

* BlowYouAway: As a triple Vayu, this should be obvious. His godly item - the Neutral Bow - was created by Vayu for Rao in specific, and works by shooting, well, tornadoes.

Added DiffLines:

* SingleTargetSexuality: Anna-sexual, it seems. Characters that knew him were shocked to learn he had ever married, as apparently Rao never showed interest in anyone.


* HiddenHeartOfGold: In Season 3, she treats Yuta distantly, surprising Ran who calls her out for inexplicably being mean to him. [[spoiler:It's because she knows Yuta is trying not to love her--so as to quiet his HorrorHunger around her--and thus treating him with her usual affection will only make things harder for him. She has to remind herself not to smile around him.]]



* GuileHero: He doesn't have much in the way of combat skills, but ''very'' good at weaving his way through situations through sheer wits. Teo even remarks that it scares her with how fast Kaz catches onto things.

* BornUnlucky: [[spoiler:The gods feared that she would one day become a threat, as a survivor of the ancient human race, and so decided to curse her with constant misfortune in all her lives to prevent that. All that the few gods on her side could do was at least bless her to encounter Agni in as many lives as possible.]]



* BrokenBird: [[spoiler:After she awakens, she becomes a textbook example. Traumatized, cynical, ruthless, and detached, especially to her LoveInterest Agni, along with acting as an experienced figure to Leez.]]



* ImperiledInPregnancy: [[spoiler:Flashbacks have her pregnant, crying and surrounded by flames and burned bodies. It seems to be a memory from her first life, although it may be of other reincarnations.]]

* PlayingWithFire: Given her triple Agni attributes, she unsurprisingly defaults to fire when attacking. Combined with the Staff of Agni [[spoiler:and silent magic]], she becomes a force to be reckoned with.



* VitriolicBestBuds: With Lorraine. They frequently bicker, at the same time Airi cares enough to worry about Lorraine and Saha's strained relationship.



* ExpositoryHairstyleChange: After [[spoiler:Asha's betrayal and Saha's death]], she keeps her hair loose and unkempt as an indication of her spiralling stability.



* ThePowerOfCreation: The best at Creation magic on Willarv (Lutz being her only real competition) and owner of a Creation brand.




to:

* VitriolicBestBuds: She and Airi are constantly arguing, but also constantly seen together.



* BadassOnPaper: How she maintains her popularity as guild president despite not being all that competent. ''Hoti Vayu'' might be all she's good at, but it means that after the attack on Atera, she can technically say there wasn't a single casualty under her watch (because she teleported everyone to safety when the building collapsed) even though she refused to participate in defending the city out of cowardice.



* ItsPersonal: See Riche's section. It's implied to be why she got over [[spoiler:Asha's BrokenPedestal]] so quickly.



* WhatTheHellHero: Gives an indirect but [[TranquilFury serenely vicious]] one regarding a certain magician.
-->'''Ruche:''' You know what? [[spoiler:Asha used ''Hoti Visnu'' over a thousand times to revive the Halfs she killed.]] Yet she never once used it to help people who were truly desperate for it... ''I just don't get it''. How could she do such a thing?



* AbsurdlyYouthfulMother: People remark in season three that she doesn't look like a mother of four. That's because she got an item from Eline that keeps her appearance the same as the one she had when she first put it; she doesn't stop growing old, just looking it. It's heavily implied those are the cat ears shown when Visnu's god-level items were shown as silhouettes.

Added DiffLines:

* ItsPersonal: Once the full extent of Asha's spell repertoire is revealed. [[spoiler:Asha isn't just an unrepentant SerialKiller to her. She's also an unrepentant SerialKiller who apparently ignored Riche's desperation for a ''Hoti Visnu'' user in the past. To rub salt onto the wound, as Ruche notes, Asha was too busy using ''Hoti Visnu'' to ''repeatedly murder people''.]]


Added DiffLines:

* FourEyesZeroSoul: Laila even describes him as one of the most cold-hearted people she knows.


Added DiffLines:

* NiceJobBreakingItHero: [[spoiler:When he stopped Asha from killing Laila, he assumed she'd then go after Leez--not ''Saha''.]] Season 3 reveals that, although he may not show it, he does feel guilty.


Added DiffLines:

* ThePowerOfCreation: The Priest of Creation, and owner of a Creation brand. He's Ran's (and Asha's by proxy) go-to person for modifying divine items, such as the Hide of Bondage or the Neutral Bow.


Added DiffLines:

* BlowYouAway: She's the Priestess of Wind. We get to see her skill in full effect when she helps defend Kalibloom from Taraka suras, with Agni even complimenting her ingenuity of manipulating ''his'' attacks using wind.
* BrokenBird: She covers it with being a StepfordSmiler, but she admits to Leez that none of her smiles feel genuine anymore, and when speaking to Asha, it's telling that she refers to both Asha and herself as "twisted".


Added DiffLines:

* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: Subverted. She decides to [[spoiler:defend Asha at her trial]] but lays out that she knows about all of the horrible things Asha has done. After all, she doesn't want Asha to think she's doing this out of blind trust, as she did in the past.


Added DiffLines:

* WeUsedToBeFriends: With Asha. Sort of. Asha never liked her all that much, but any positivity in their relationship is long since gone.


Added DiffLines:

* DestructiveSavior: During the attack on Atera. Agwen freaks out, but as Kasak points out, it's hardly the time to worry about the state of the city.
