Gorani, mind taking a glance over the thread (added a few notes here and there to indicate the material in the post) and tell me if that's what you had in mind? I left some as they were because I thought from the notes I added to the post it would be clear through whomever's quotation of them, that it was in response to that particular area. Similarly with those that already held notes on them.
I can't help with the chapters idea you mentioned, though, as I haven't the novel (yet, not sure whether I want to get it or not).

Some notes on the Sylvari:
Their skin colour is changing with their physical condition.
Killeens skin turn yellow when she suffered from poison or wounds; the green of her skin intensifies when she is excited (I still need to find that passage again); When Sylvari die, they kind of wither and their skin slowly turns black.
Sylvari (at least Killeen) have some sort of compulsive honesty, because of their connection by the Dream, the truth comes out eventually anyway.
Killeen sees her necromancy as normal as other kinds of magic wielded by elementalists and mesmers.
Killeens necromantic powers incluse summoning minions, calling vermin to attack, channeling life force out of a foe to heal herself and imbuing someone too steal life with its attacks on a foe.
Raising the corpse of a recently killed ally (or foe in the case of Winney, the Ebon Vanguard Riona knew) as a minion doesn't seem to be an emotional problem with Killeen (or a Sylvari in general).
No Sylvari ventured into Ascalon city p71. (yet, as Killeen died before entering)
There are Asura gates in the Grove and Killeen doesn't have problems in using them.
Destiny's Edge is a guild Logan Thackeray, Rytlock Brimestone, Caithe and Eir were part of, but not Zojja. The asura in that guild that was mentioned is Snaff.
Gullik mentioned that Eir "was" a hero, Ember that Rytlock still is considered a hero among Charr.
The Vigil was founded four years before the story of GoA happened by Almorra Soulkeeper, a charr, the sole survivor of her warband when the Dragonbrand was created
The Dragonbrand was created by the flightpath of the Crystal Dragon from north to south (p.99)

The Latin for ungue is claw, for example "ex ungue leonum" from the claw we know the lion. It's probably because of the charr=cat reference that the claw was called an ungue. Possibly looks like a jack with an area to hold at the centre?

assassin daggers and the same skin is available as an end game reward for EotN. I agree that it is only appropriate that the charr have claws, it is a wicked looking weapon - the one in the book is singular I believe? I was very amused that the character in the book was afraid of cutting himself because of the blades going in every direction.

Changing the subject a bit, I know the wiki says that the information is conflicting, but I'm convinced that Dougal Keane is some sort of new Rogue/Assassin profession.
SpoilerHe always carries around a moleskin bag of tools and lockpicks, he's adept at understanding and disabling traps. He uses swords for much of the story but he also had a knife in a secondary hilt during the fight with the Tomb Guardian.
Further supporting evidence is that Ash Legion is described as full of spies and assassins. Warriors wouldn't exactly fit that description, would they?
Gameplay evidence, every class has multiple primary and offhand weapons they are capable of wielding. It stands to reason that a Rogue class could use a sword and dagger.
Perhaps it's wishful thinking, but the information all seems to add up to some kind of Rogue profession in the Adventurer class.

About Dougal's profession:SpoilerHis weapons all point to ranger, actually (his dagger, he states, is not a good weapon - if he were a profession which utilizes daggers as main weapons, like assassins, he wouldn't have stated his lack of a sword so prominently). It's only the lack of a pet and his lack of love for nature that really pushes away from that. Then again, it does seem to hint that he dislikes the bustling cities of DR and LA. Does to me at least.
The Ash Legion being full of spies and assassins (old news, btw - stalkers are also of the Ash Legion) simply means "infiltrators and hitmen" not the profession assassin.
Kranxx and Ember seem to be the last 2 adventurer professions though. Killeen is the only scholar, hard to say for certain what Dougal is (we know he uses a dagger as a poor weapon, implying off-hand if one were to relate to mechanics, a sword and a longbow - dunno if the torch could be included, despite being the only one to hold one), and it seems Riona and Gullik are both warriors (if one of them is the second soldier, it is Riona).
But again, the book is purely about lore. Not game mechanics. So finding a profession out of it, even the explicitly named scholars, is not entirely likely. Possible but unlikely.
