The best speculation is:

Orlanth         Yanafal Tarnils         Danfive Xaron
Issaries                Deezola
Lhankor Mhy             Irrippi Ontor           Irrippi Ontor
Chalana Arroy           Teelo Norri             Deezola
Flesh Man               Jakaleel the Witch
Eurmal                  Danfive Xaron           Yanafal Tarnils
Ginna Jar               She-Who-Waits           She-Who-Waits

                         My thinking             RQ-Con musings

It was suggested at the RQ-Con that Yanafal had the role of trickster because he conquered death and defied the rules and that Danfive had Orlanth's role because he was a murderer and a thief. I think my parallels fit better but are not perfect (c.f. Deezola as Issaries).

Only Orlanthi quests are easier with Eurmali.
