I got to thinking that most of the sobriquets used in Exalted are fairly self explanatory, but there are some I suppose I don't have the cultural context to parse. Jurgen being called 'The Bull of the North' is obvious. He's from the north and has bull-like qualities. What's the significance of Tepet Ejava being called 'Roseblack'?
It's a nickname bestowed by her primary school classmates for inadvertently killing the dominie's rosebushes with her anima flux. (Out-of-setting, I'm guessing that the creative team came up with the sobriquet first, then found a justification for the sobriquet afterwards.)
