What does a Fraktur Runic, Hebrew or Arabic letter look like?

Why would it? There are a few Latin characters (AE, OE, Thorn, Eth, Sharp S), a few Russian characters (those which are clearly distinct from upper, lower, and small-caps Latin characters), and some more Hebrew characters that might show up in printed math texts. But if they have, they're very rare. What are the odds that
they will need styled variants on top of that?
