* GirlInABox: Chava, before she is activated.

Added DiffLines:

*LonersAreFreaks: The normally tight-knit and social Syrian community is unnerved by Ahmadís standoffishness.

* WhatTheHellHero: Ahmad gets this a *lot*, mostly from Arbeely and Chava, but practically everyone he's ever wronged gets a chance to call him out on what he did in some way. [[spoiler: His major character arc is learning that his actions have consequences.]]

* SealedBadassInACan: Both of the titles characters are arguably this, tho Chava only was for a couple of weeks (in a mere wooden crate), while Ahmed hews more closely to the trope, as he was imprisoned for 1,000 years (in a literal metal vessel as well).

* OurMonstersAreDifferent/OurGeniesAreDifferent: Chava the golem isn't an automaton, but a conscious being with her own mores & personality. Ahmed the jinni is, contrary to many contemporary depictions, a being of fire, and not air, and is unable to grant wishes even after being released from his imprisonment.

Added DiffLines:

* HoistByHisOwnPetard: [[spoiler: Schaalman gets imprisoned in the same flask he sealed the jinni in 1,000 years earlier]]


* {{Golem}}: Chava, obviously. And part of the reason Rabbi Meyer understands her so well is that, as a child, he once created a much-less-complex mini-golem under the supervision of a (slightly eccentric) tutor.

* ImmortalitySeeker: Schaalman's goal is to find the secret to eternal life. [[spoiler: Ironically he already has it because his existence has been bound to Ahmad's ever since he sealed him in the bottle. Every time he dies he reincarnates, and this cycle will continue as long as Ahmad lives.]]
