* AbhorrentAdmirer: Roger Solmes, the man the family wants to pair Clarissa up with. He is the full package : not only considered unattractive by the object of his admiration, but also selfish, greedy, and bent on not taking no for an answer.

A CrowningMomentOfAwesome of this sort may have happened between Arabella and Anna's mothers.

** Despite her obvious interest in him, it is clear that, had she not been put into extremities by her family, her stalker would have remained this. Lovelace is one of the most horrible examples of HandsomeDevil ever.

* NobleDemon: Lovelace, at least initially. Clarissa admits she's heard as many good things as bad about him, or at least, more credible.



* TheResenter: Bella is this to Clarissa, because of her grandfather's will, which favors her, of the general preference her family shows her because she has self-control and a conventionally beautiful woman. There is also something about Lovelace because he [[spoiler: spurned her and took interest in her younger sister.
