!!Clyde 2.0
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/randolph_clyde_6131.jpg]]
->'''Played By''': Creator/AmyAcker

An imprinted personality which was created from altering the original personality of Clyde Randolph, one of the co-founders of the Rossum Corporation. Docile in nature, Clyde 2.0 lacked many of the original's traits, thereby working with Boyd Langton without question, being the one to put Clyde Randolph into the Attic. Clyde frequently switched bodies to the point that as of 2007, it was noted that "Clyde Randolph V" was a more appropriate name for him.

* BigBad: Well, at least the second or third copy is. The original is locked in the Attic and very bitter.
* BodySurf: There have been at least five versions of the modified Clyde, plus the original in the Attic.
* CorruptCorporateExecutive
* HotChickInABadassSuit: (S)he dresses in a male suit while in Whiskey's body.
* SmugSnake: S(he) is very sure of him/herself, freely taunting Adelle and others.
* SlasherSmile
* UndyingLoyalty: To Boyd, as (s)he is programmed to.

Every year, Joel rents out an Active from the Dollhouse to be Rebecca so that they can have the perfect day they never got to.

[[folder:Echo]]
!!Echo (Caroline Farrell)
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/echo_6376.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:350:''"I have 38 brains, and not one of them thinks you can sign a contract to be a slave."'']]
->'''Played By''': ElizaDushku

One of the Los Angeles Dollhouse's most popular dolls. Echo has begun to develop self-awareness independent of her original personality.

* ActionGirl: A frequent imprint, and a defining trait of her integrated personality.
* ActionSurvivor: When not imprinted with combat skills she's still dangerous.
* {{Badass}}
** TookALevelInBadass
** HeartbrokenBadass: After Paul is killed.
* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: Caroline wanted to do 'everything'. Well, it happened for her.
* BigSisterInstinct
* BlessedWithSuck (or CursedWithAwesome, depending on the point of view): The emotional isolation of Echo's ability to retain imprints and to be anyone imposed on her, especially how it prevents her from opening her heart fully to Paul Ballard until after he dies in battle. Near the end of his life, Paul tells her, "A hundred personalities, and you're the loneliest person I know."
* ChronicHeroSyndrome
* CoolBigSis: Acts like one to Sierra, and used to be one for Bennett.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: At some points in the series.
* DoesNotLikeShoes
* GranolaGirl: her original personality as Caroline.
* HoneyTrap
* HeroicSacrifice: The one Caroline made for Bennett Halverson led to her becoming a Doll.
* MagneticHero: [[DiscussedTrope Specifically cited]] by Bennett for her ability to get people to obsess over her or do what she wants even after her mind-wiping.
* ManySpiritsInsideOfOne
* MeaningfulName: She's one of the few Dolls who remembers fragments of her previous personality- perhaps we could call them [[IncrediblyLamePun echoes?]]
* MsFanservice: Her other most common imprint.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: Once she becomes self-aware.
* SpoiledBrat: Even ElizaDushku agrees Caroline is this.
* WaifFu
* WellIntentionedExtremist
* WideEyedIdealist: Her original personality.

Echo's gruff but kind handler. An ex-cop, he has serious reservations about the work the Dollhouse does, yet constantly shows unswerving loyalty to Echo. Acts as the moral lodestone of the Dollhouse.

* LonelyAtTheTop: Due to the nature of his work (and possibly because of a general lack of morality), Topher is an incredibly lonely guy. Adelle realizes this, and to make sure he doesn't go crazy from it lets him imprint an active into a friend once a year (on his birthday). Later in season 2, this trope is largely averted as he grows closer to Echo, Boyd and Ballard.

* AffablyEvil: He's genuinely polite, kind and charming even while manipulating people to his own ends. He genuinely cares about all of the team and considers Them "His family". Even when his cover is blown, he never loses his manners.

* DeadpanSnarker: Not as much as Topher, but definitely has his moments - his quips make him come across as the OnlySaneMan. [[spoiler:Funny in that he's FAR from it - even lampshaded by Topher.]]

A former Active, he had 48 personalities downloaded into his brain during a "composite event." He proceeded to get slash-happy and killed his handler, Echo's handler and a dozen other people before escaping. He has an obsession with Echo. He remains a looming presence throughout the first season, and has been known to contact Paul Ballard with information concerning the Dollhouse.

* BiTheWay / DepravedBisexual: ''Maybe''. There are some strong indicators that Bennett may actually have loved Caroline, not to mention her relationship with Topher. Whether Bennett was sexually attracted to Caroline or not, it's very evident that Caroline is probably Bennett's only friend and that Bennett is very emotionally invested in the relationship. As for the depraved part: If you look at it strictly from Bennett's POV it does look an awful lot like Caroline exploited her loneliness to lie and seduce her, when that was revealed used her to break into Rossum, and then when things went wrong left her behind (maimed to boot). Echo herself wonders if she had it coming.
