I may be able to help with the defining. I completely understand the two 'aspects' of the Aspect. And you've also helped nail down some of the ones I've been missing. Here's mine:
Breath: Air/Wind and Motion/Force/Motivation/etc.
Light: Knowledge and Sight (most of light can be conglomerated into knowledge as everything we see is an extension of knowledge, with the exception of pure luck)
Time: Time (hard to pin down a second aspect since Time and Space are extremely self-explanatory)
Space: Space (matter and velocity)
Mind: Knowledge/Thought/Logic (this is where it differs from light) and Choice(as well as the outcomes of one)
Heart: Soul/Heart(lives) and Love
Life: Extended Lifespan/Healing and Quality of Life(?)
Void: Nothing/Space between space and Secrets/Occult
Hope: Energy in both senses: Will and Power(as in hopey beams of death)
Doom: Death/Doom/Misfortune and Fate/Predetermination/Prophecies
Blood: Relations and I guess Sacrifice really could work
Rage: Anger/Destruction and Emotions (nailed this one IMO).
As for the opposites, I really wouldn't try to focus on those. If you look at each aspect at the right angle, it can be the opposite of every other aspect, as well as itself in some ways.
Fortune is explicitly a part of Light, with Rose's understanding of "fortune" being oriented around "fate" and Vriska's being oriented around "luck." If in fact there is any difference between those two things. We see this conflation also in Rose's description of how it's her ability to see the paths that will lead to success.
Analyzing my own title like the egocentric person I am...
I took the Page of Hopes' quiz thing and got Maid of Mind, which I believe to fit fairly well. My only puzzlement is what exactly a Maid of Mind's abilities would be. Help?
Prediction seems to be an 'ability' reserved for Seers (as is "enhanced" Sight related to their Aspect). Mind seems to be about choice and volition. A Thief of Mind, perhaps, would be able to steal the choice of another; force them into a decision that would debilitate them while at the same time be advantageous for the Thief. A Prince of Mind could destroy someone's ability to choose (make it so that they cannot decide on what to do), or maybe literally destroy their minds (which would also destroy their ability to choose). Knights could be the 'tactician' with Mind as their Aspect, able to organize and command others efficiently in a fight. As for how their Godtier powers would work, I wouldn't really know.
I got Maid of Rage, but I'm a guy. Then it was Sylph of rage, which didn't help. I'll just go with Page, I guess.
I'd say Pages are the passive counterpart of Maids, and they "provide others with (aspect)". Tavros tried to give Vriska breath again when she was dying, and Jake is destined to give people hope that LE can be destroyed. Which I guess means I'm just really annoying and I make everyone mad at stuff? Huh.
The definition we have of Pages is that they're "full of untapped potential" and that "it's practically all there is to that class", just FYI. That doesn't actually say anything about their ability, just that they're capable of doing something great.
Giving people breath and bringing them back to life even if they have no dreamself left seems pretty powerful to me.
Suit yourself man.
I got Mage of Doom on that test, twice.
So I've pretty much accepted that I'm a shittier version of Sollux.
So I've done quite a few tests and I've come back with Prince of Life on multiple occasions and have accepted it and might even utilize it for a fan-character. But I run into this issue when pondering how the class would even work. We know definitely that a Prince is a destroyer of/through [aspect], and that so far Life has been shown only utilized via healer-type classes so it lends nothing to how the aspect might be utilized in an offensive manner beyond possibly what Eridan managed when he used his "white science" which has been alluded to as a physical manifestation of his Hope powers. So I'd like to possibly hear other opinions and theories on how a Prince of Life might function, to gain insight and possibly help me get an image in my head of where to take things with this huge question mark of a fan-character idea. Have at thee!
All I can keep seeing in my head whenever I think of the title is some troll in pantaloons and a duck hood lunging at people screaming "I'm alive, so you die!" while circling him like zoidberg or something because his very existance and ability to keep breathing is lethal somehow. o_o
Prince of Life? Hell, man. I'm picturing someone commanding Warhammer 40k Tyrranids into battle. Your land would be Catachan, more or less.
Destroy with life of destroy life: May as well do both at once.

Taking my best guess, maybe a Prince of Life could be just like one of my characters from the animoos; the ones who get more "pumped" up the more damaged they become. Kind of just burning up their lives to get stronger? Heh. Just going with my "Life = Growth" idea. Organisms either expend energy to grow, heal, or to move; so a Prince of Life could forgo letting themselves recover to fight harder.
Isn't it obvious? A Prince of Life can hurt and murder people by taking away their life powers. It doesn't get any more straightforwad than that. Light is about fortune rather than misfortune but Vriska can make people unlucky since her class is about taking from others to strengthen yourself. The Prince is kinda similar but without the "strengthening yourself" part and more focus on the "taking away" part.
I immediately noticed that 95% of everyone on the opposite side of every argument were complete idiots. After a while, however, I started to realise that 90% of everyone on my side of every argument were also idiots. Then I realised that statistically, that meant there is a 90% chance that I am an idiot. And now I don't post on the Bioware forums anymore.
Wouldn't a prince of life just kill people?
