* TheChick

to:

* BrainlessBeauty
BrainlessBeauty: Somewhat subverted as Pippa is less dumb and more naive. But boy, [[UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom is she naive.]]
* TheChickTheChick: Deconstructed. Pippa only fits the role because she is the most traditionally feminine and has nothing else to recommend her besides her looks, and this causes her more problems than it solves. Pippa's condition throughout the story rallies her friends together, but it is because of circumstances and not because of her character. She is woefully helpless and dependent on others and contributes little to the group.

* BrainyBrunetteBrainyBrunette: The most academically smart of the group.



* ExtremeDoormat: Semi-justified. She lets the Spence girls (sometimes including Gemma, Fee, and Pip) walk all over her, because she knows full well that she can get expelled for an infarction, and the others could practically get away with murder.
