Added DiffLines:

* DarkSkinnedBlond: Shefali, as is normal for the Qorin.

Added DiffLines:

* TheCorruption: The blackblood.

Added DiffLines:

* ComingOfAgeStory: The first book for Shizuka and Shefali.


* AlwaysChaoticEvil: Demons and blackbloods. [[spoiler: They are this way because the Traitor's control over their minds wills them to be what he wants.]]



* ChillyReception: Shefali receives one any time she's among the Hokkarans.



* {{Foreshadowing}}: The demons all refer to Shefali by the name "Steel-Eye" even from a young age. It's made apparent much later what that means.



* LIsForDyslexia: Shefali is heavily implied to have some form of Dyslexia, being unable to read Hokkaran/Xianese characters and having some trouble writing Qorin ones. Her cousin Otgar has to read and transcribe her childhood correspondence with Shizuka for her. Later, she and Shizuka work out how to write Hokkaran phonetically using the Qorin alphabet, which means she can actually write. This makes fact that she took the time and difficulty to write Shizuka the letter that makes up much of the first book all the more affecting.

Added DiffLines:

* [[AndImTheQueenOfSheba And I'm The Queen Of Sheba]]: Shizuka is prone to this when anyone insults Shefali or the Qorin. She doesn't need to state her title most times, as most people already know who she is, but when some traveling guards don't recognize her and don't take her oath of honor that the Qorin won't harm anyone at face value, she puts them soundly in their place.


** Lai Baozhai is a more conventional example, even before she actually gets the title of Queen.

Added DiffLines:

* OneHeadTaller: UpToEleven; Shefali is, according to WordOfGod, at least a ''foot'' taller than Shizuka. Shizuka states at one point that Shefali can, when Shizuka's in the saddle of her horse, kiss her without taking a foot off the ground.


Added DiffLines:

* SuperStrength: [[spoiler: The Blackblood]] gives Shefali this. It's enough to [[spoiler: tear humans and demons apart]] or pick Shizuka up with one hand.

Added DiffLines:

* AwesomeEgo: Shizuka. Even ''her wife'' describes her as amazingly arrogant. She gets less arrogant [[TheWoobie (and more troubled)]] by the present timeline, but she's still very cocky in public.

Added DiffLines:

* ComfortingTheWidow: How [[spoiler: Otgar and Alshara's relationship is implied to have started. PlayedWith in that Alshara wasn't actually Shizuru's widow, but ''was'' deeply in love with her, and that Otgar didn't know Shizuru at all. Also, [[{{Squick}} Otgar is Alshara's niece.]] ]]


Added DiffLines:

* TragicKeepsake: Burqila Alshara keeps a hank of Minami Shizuru (Shizuka's mother)'s hair inside her deel. Alshara was in love with Shizuru, who married the prince of Hokkaro, and keeps the hair even after Shizuru dies. Qorin believe that someone's soul is carried in their scent, so Alshara keeps a piece of Shizuru's soul with her.

Added DiffLines:

* IncestIsRelative: Midway through ''The tiger's Daughter'', it's revealed that [[spoiler: Burqila Alshara is sleeping with her niece, Dorbentei Otgar. Otgar is the same age as Alshara's son, and it's implied this relationship has been going on for three years or so. Shefali, Alshara's daughter and Otgar's cousin, is majorly squicked out, especially since [[SecretRelationship they don't appear to have told anyone]]. ]]


* TheDreaded: Burqila Alshara is explicitly named the most dreaded woman in all Hokkaro. Many, even among her own people, call her [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast The Destroyer]]

Added DiffLines:

* HighClassCallGirl: Ren is a [[UnusualEuphemism Singing Girl]], noted to have the nicest house in her village. Once she moves to Fujino she runs an entire establishment of these.


Added DiffLines:

* HookerWithAHeartOfGold: Ren, although her heart of gold is only really towards Shefali.

Added DiffLines:

* IKnowYourTrueName: You must speak a Demon's name and then cut off its head to kill it permanently. If you don't speak the name, it will rise again later. Luckily, Shefali and Shizuka's divine nature gives them knowledge of demon's names: Shefali just knows, and Shizuka sees their name in glowing characters in the air around them.
