- The Scrappy and Jerk Ass Woobie: Both Hallai and Samia are this. No wonder they become friends
- Kenar too, fits the bill for both tropes
- The Woobie: Shrens, good lord, all of the Shrens. Except for flight, they all have the standard powers and abilities of a dragon, and one of the reasons for their Fantastic Racism is that any Shren could infect dragons at any moment, by just shifting in their natural form.
YMMV / Elcenia
