Venli should be in Les Mis.

For all of you musical fans out there, I have to point something out. The song "Do You Hear the People Sing" fits perfectly with the Parshendi. I can just imagine Venli singing this as the Highstorm approaches. 

The lyrics are below. 

Spoiler
Do you hear the people sing?
Singing the songs of angry men?
It is the music of the people
Who will not be slaves again!
When the beating of your heart
Echoes the beating of the drums
There is a life about to start
When tomorrow comes!
 
Will you join in our crusade?
Who will be strong and stand with me?
Somewhere beyond the barricade
Is there a world you long to see?
Then join in the fight
That will give you the right to be free!

Will you give all you can give
So that our banner may advance
Some will fall and some will live
Will you stand up and take your chance?
The blood of the martyrs
Will water the meadows of France!

And Javert could totally be a Skybreaker.

OH MY WORD YES. THIS NEEDS TO HAPPEN. NOW.

 

(and you know, Sean vel Sean (or however you spell his name) could quite possibly be an edgedancer, since he didn't forget about Marius in the end:P)

It's okay, it's easy to do. French is...a chaotic language. I mean for storms sake, the word for bird is oiseau, but it rhymes with kazoo!

I would say more of a Windrunner, actually. I mean, he stops a fight, saves a guy from under a carraige, helps Fantine, saves Cosette, joins the revolution to protect Marius, then ultimately drags Marius away through the sewers. But, yeah, I suppose he could also be an Edgedancer.

I knew I wasn't the only one who thinks of Javert and thinks that he's perfect Skybreaker material!

Someone needs to write a fanfic where Javert is saved from death (like Szeth was) by Nale, and inducted into the order of Skybreakers.

Check out the Cosmere the Musical thread, There's something almost precisely like what you described somewhere in there (and the thread is just a good time.)

Nale is basically Inspector Javert with a magic sword.

I would bet Javert is the inspiration for Nale. 

But back to the original title of this post, thematically, Venli would fit better with a tragic arc like Éponine Thénardier or Fantine, even if Venli's arc does not entirely turn out tragic.

Hmm. I don't know about that. I see Venli as more of the revolutionary who got in over her head than the tragic spurned lover. Her plot in WoR was about convincing her people to bond Voidspren and fight back against the Alethi. That doesn't really sound like either Éponine or Fantine. I mean, Venli was happily married (before her plan got her husband killed). And you can't say that the fate of Enjolras and friends wasn't tragic. They died for their beliefs, just like the Parshendi who were taken over by the Fused.
