Added DiffLines:

* Both Aleksander and Lydia of Creator/CarolBerg's ''Literature/RaiKirah'' series, though unlike Aleksander Lydia seems to generally limit herself to words and (carefully aimed) thrown furniture, rather than physical torture and death threats (and not only threats).

He [[FlashStep flash steps]] right up to Timothy, delivers a quick BadassBoast that doubles as a death threat, calls the grown man an [[OlderThanTheyLook insolent child]] and then tells the guy to get out of his sight.

* ''Literature/AnneOfGreenGables'':
** Justified with Anne Shirley, whose temper was at its fieriest when she was teased about her red hair (being one of the few characters whose fire is connected to their coloring). She chewed out the neighborhood busybody and also responded to being called "Carrots" by breaking her slate over a schoolmate's head. Nobody ever teased her about her red hair again, after the social snubbing Gilbert got for five or so years. Ironically, they end up marrying. [[note]] It's ironic for Anne. That was Gilbert's goal [[LoveAtFirstPunch since the beginning]]. [[/note]] Anne never quite gets over her dislike of her red hair. She didn't even like it when her ''children'' inherited it. When Jem is born and the nurse tells her his hair will be red, Gilbert reports to Marilla that "Anne is furious with her, and I'm tickled to death!"

* Cate Hendrickson of ''Literature/ParadiseRot'' fits the bill. Sarcastic and Irish as it is possible to be.
* In ''[[Literature/{{Dragons}} The Last Dragon Chronicles]]'' Lucy fits this persona perfectly, though it becomes blaringly obvious during [[TeensAreMonsters her teenage years]].
* In the Literature/{{Branion}} series by Fiona Patton, the royal family of an alternate Britain is literally this. The sovereigns are the Jesus-style avatars of a fire god, and they commonly have red hair. They also have tempers, which is not surprising given that effectively having a fire god inside you is [[RoyallyScrewedUp not good for your mental stability]]. Justified by the presence in their family tree of [[FantasyCounterpartCulture Danes, Welsh and Irish]].
* Literature/GemmaDoyle and her mother.

** As is her son, Ben Skywalker. The striking similarities between the two (particularly their personalities) are brought up fairly often in profic, especially in ''[[Literature/LegacyOfTheForce Sacrifice]]'', and a LOT in fanfic. To be honest, probably the only notable physical feature he inherited from Luke are his blue eyes.
