* Juliet Butler from ''ArtemisFowl'' is somewhat of a subversion. Though she's been trained for most of her life as a bodyguard, it's because she's a Butler, and that's what they do. When Artemis keeps her around for missions, it's solely because she's well trained and already knows about TheMasquerade. While an excellent fighter, she's too impulsive to be a good bodyguard and in the later books starts a career in wrestling.
