I understand that bootloaders are a set of codes that run on the boot of a device. It is specific to the hardware in the phone. I also understand that in order to flash custom ROMs,an unlocked bootloader is neccesary.

Now for my questions. I've already unlocked my bootloader, installed TWRP, S-Off'd, and installed the custom ROM I'm more than happy with (ViperOne). I'm considering relocking my bootloader to (maybe) redeem my Google Drive storage. Questions:
If I relock, can I:
1. Stay rooted
2. Keep S-Off (for Xposed, etc)
3. Keep TWRP
4. Redeem Google Drive storage

Thanks for the answers!

That's yes times 4.

Since you're S-Off, you should able to issue fastboot commands to lock and unlock, all without losing any data.

I'm sure that's what I did with my M7.

Keep a nandroid backup off your phone storage just in case.
