* AlphaBitch: Hazel, in the first book -- while she's not described as very pretty, and as an orphan averts the usual "rich and influental" part of the classic AlphaBitch, she fits most of the other aspects of the trope: She's snobbish and haughty, and looks down on the other orphans because ''she'', unlike them, can remember her parents (and is always going on about what wonderful people they were). She has her own posse of minions and delights in mocking and bullying Molly and several of the other orphans, but she is so good at sucking up to the adults that she remains the darling of her teachers and the head of the orphanage. [[spoiler:The trope is brutally {{Deconstructed}} in the final parts of the book when it's revealed that Hazel's attitude is a coping mechanism; her parents weren't wonderful people at all but violent alcoholics who beat and abused her -- so she sucks up to adults so they won't beat her and bullies the other children because she doesn't know how to be nice to them.]]
