* RedHeadedHero: Sammael.


* YouImaginedIt: This is ultimately how Rayojini resolves the issue of her "dream" encounters with the eloim and other strangeness. It is also the core belief of the soulscapers--all strangeness is created by human imagination.


* ParentalNeglect: Rayojini's mother more or less trusts Rayo to raise herself. They actually probably work best that way.



* [[WhatTheHellDad What the Hell, Mom?]]: Rayojini's mother more or less trusts Rayo to raise herself. They actually probably work best that way.

Added DiffLines:

* WoundThatWillNotHeal: Both Mikha'il and Sammael have such a wound over the heart.

Added DiffLines:

* TreeTopTown: Taparak, which is built into a petrified forest. The community does start at ground level, however the more affluent a person is, the closer they live to the sky.

Added DiffLines:

* MysticalWhiteHair: Hadith Sarim. Being a young-looking woman she shouldn't have white hair. Rayojini realizes something is off, but unable to see through TheMasquerade, she can't tell Hadith isn't human.


* WhiteHairedPrettyGirl: Hadith Sarim.

Added DiffLines:

* DisappearedDad: Rayojini doesn't know who her father is. And, in part because Taps don't worry much about marriage or legitimacy, she really doesn't care, either. Which is for the best, as it's implied that her mother doesn't know.


* TheBeautifulElite: The eloim.

* TheBeautifulElite: The eloim.eloim, as far as most humans are concerned.


Added DiffLines:

* InhumanlyBeautifulRace: The eloim. Though they try to keep non-patrons from noticing.


* GenderBlenderName: Beth Metatronim is a man. No, really.
** That's due to the ThemeNaming. Beth in this case doesn't stand for Elizabeth, but for the second letter in the Hebrew alphabet. His sister is named after the third letter, Gimel.
