* In Robin Jarvis' ''Literature/DeptfordMice'' trilogy, Audrey Brown is shown to be a feisty young mouse girl who loves to dream and wear lace and ribbons. Throughout the books, among other things, [[spoiler:her father is violently murdered (she refuses to believe he is dead at first, but gradually comes to accept it), she is accused of being a witch and almost hanged (with the only way to save her being marriage to a friend who is not her true love), Piccadilly the boy mouse she is in love with is murdered before she can confess her feelings to him, is attacked by multiple brainwashed and violent ghosts of those she knew in life (including Piccadilly, but she is able to jog his memory and tell him she loves him; though of course it is too late to do anything about it and she witnesses his crossing over to the other side), she is forced to face the [[BigBad Big Bad]] Jupiter head-on multiple times, and she is tricked into becoming the (at least initially) unwilling successor of a monarch known as the Starwife.]] At the end she is left as a weary, melancholy shadow of her former self. She is described as having 'learned many things' and she 'no longer wears lace and ribbons'.

** Murphy. This is slightly subverted by the fact that Murphy is a {{Badass}} to begin with, but by Ghost Story [[spoiler: she's completely and utterly broken. She's functional, but only just.]] This is contrasted by [[spoiler: Molly. She looks more broken than Murphy, but is actually much more sane.]]

* Book 5 of the ''Literature/BlackCompany'' series features Timmy Lokan, a fun-loving neighborhood kid with a knack for exploration. In order, he has the flesh of his hand corrupted by the touch of an ancient evil (caused when retrieving an ArtifactOfDoom for his unsavory friends), watching said corruption spread into a genuine disease, having his hand amputated to prevent the corruption from killing him, and finally being beaten to death in an interrogation gone wrong.

* Happens to a race of beings in "Literature/{{Dragonlance}}". Given that the race in question has been through a lot, this should really communicate the impact of the event.
