* DoesNotLikeMen: Jane initially, though to be fair, her only male contacts prior to moving to Thornfield were[[TheBully John Reed]] and [[SinisterMinister Mr. Brocklehurst]]. She changes her tune after meeting Mr. Rochester.



* ALighterShadeOfBlack: Eliza Reed, compared to her AttentionWhore sister and {{Jerkass}} brother and mother. While not exactly ''nice'' to Jane, she treats her civilly enough, and their last conversation after [[spoiler: Mrs. Reed's death]] is probably the closest Jane ever comes to being shown affection by the Reed family.



* TakingTheVeil: One of Jane's cousins converts to Catholicism, becomes a nun and later becomes the mother superior.

** That's really interesting because Jane [[spoiler: marries Rochester]] about two years after her first arrival in Thornfield, and at the end she says she [[spoiler: has been married]] for ten years. Which means that if the primary action of the novel is set in the 1810s, even the narration must be taking place in the 1820s. Kind of a weird choice for a novel written in the 1840s.

** Jane's detailed descriptions of Rochester suggest that he had the kind of rugged looks that would go over very well today if not in the mid-19th c.

* FatBastard: John Reed is fed FAR too much by his mother. It's also virtually impossible to find him sympathetic.

**The sermon "Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God" by Johnathan Edwards comes to mind when Mr. Brocklehurst speaks to Jane Eyre concerning her deciteful ways.
-->I "Deciet is, in fact, a sad fault within child," said Mr. Brocklegurst; "it is akin to falsehood, and all liars will have their portion in the lake burning with fire and brimstone..."

->''"Do you think I can stay to become nothing to you?
