The faithful female servant. She's not an ActionGirl on the surface, but neither is she a DamselInDistress; her main job is to help out TheHero (her boss) at critical junctures. Sometimes she provides critical information, other times it's just a helping hand or [[TheHeart heart]], sometimes with a side of UnresolvedSexualTension. Don't presume the Girl Friday can't fight, however -- she can still kick plenty of ass, sometimes turning into a full-fledged BattleButler.
