Louisa May Alcott, another strategist, may count, but her hair is very light brown.

* All three eponymous ''Series/GilmoreGirls'' fit the bill in varying degrees. Rory, the youngest, is the most clearcut example - a CuteBookworm member of the GeniusBookClub and a GoGettrGirl. Her mother Loerlai is a more offbeat example - a BunnyEarsLawyer who is an incredibly quick thinker. Unike her daugther, she is more street smart than book smart. Emily, the grandmother, is a BrainyBrunette of the ManipulativeBitch persuasion, rounding up a trio of book/street/people smarts.
