** Unlike most Peacekeepers, the first-season BigBad Captain Crais actually grew up on an agricultural commune and was fully expected to spend his life as a common farmer like his parents... up until a Peacekeeper press-gang arrived in search of new recruits. Ambitious and eager to prove himself, Bialar Crais rose through the ranks on wits and hatred - until, by the start of the season, he's in charge of his own command carrier.

** The series-wide BigBad, Scorpius, was born into slavery as the [[HalfHumanHybrid hybrid]] [[ChildByRape offspring]] of a [[MedicalRapeAndImpregnate raped test subject]]. Weak and sickly throughout his childhood, his Scarran captors considered him a failed experiment... right up until he escaped from captivity. Worse still, the attempt to recapture him ended with his "nanny" [[ExtremeMeleeRevenge getting a coolant rod]] [[EyeScream to the eyeballs]] and a Peacekeeper ambush being called in on her dreadnought. Impressed with his intelligence, Peacekeeper command decided to waive the [[HalfBreedDiscrimination rules against hybrids]] and allow Scorpius to join them. By the time the crew meets him, the former slave is in command of a top-secret research facility; over the series, he levels up to commanding his own warship, to commanding his own interstellar experiment, to commanding his own ''fleet.''

* ''TrueBlood'': Bill Compton was just a random and lost confederate soldier dying of starvation as he tried to make his way back to Bon Temps to reunite with his family, who didn't even know if he was still alive. Cue one [[HoneyTrap meeting with a lonely widow in a cabin deep in the woods]] and he was transformed into a vampire by the sadistic Lorena. He still remains somewhat of a nobdy for about a century after this until [[spoiler: he is recruited by Nan Flannagan to be a spy for the American Vampire League and the Authority. A succession of seasons later, and he has become first the King of Louisiana to replace the fallen Sophie-Anne, a Chancellor of the Authority after Roman's demise, and now...a HumanoidAbomination that is the physical avatar of the [[EldritchAbomination vampire goddess Lilith.]]]]
