* Lapis Lazuli of ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'', especially in the episode "Jail Break." Steven is completely capable of getting her free, and alongside the Crystal Gems they'd be more than a match for Jasper and Peridot. But Lapis refuses to leave her cell because she believes that resisting would only make things worse and that the only way she can help them is by [[spoiler: stealing the reigns of a fusion with Jasper and dragging them both down to the bottom of the sea forever]].

New information has come about since this troper wrote their summary. We now also know that Lapis was trapped inside a mirror for 6,000 years and interrogated by Homeworld soldiers who mistook her, a civilian, for a Crystal Gem. Even after everyone fled, she was stuck on the Galaxy Warp for ages until Pearl found her. In addition, her fusion with Jasper did her absolutely no good, genuinely ''missing'' Malachite, the most toxic fusion we've seen thus far. Finally, Lauren Zuke confirmed Lapis Lazuli has PTSD, as was hinted at in 'Same Old World.'
