* In ''{{Literature/Everworld}},'' [[TokenEvilTeammate Senna]] knew that someone like [[GodOfEvil Loki]] was going to come for her eventually, so she purposefully manipulated people she knew to get sucked into Everworld with her. Particularly early on she tried to [[PlayingTheVictimCard play the innocent]] MacGuffinGirl, but [[SiblingYinYang April]], [[TheSmartGuy Jalil]] and [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Christopher]] could see through her. [[HeroicWannabe David]] had a harder time of it, though, for [[MoreThanMindControl various reasons]].
