With a bit of help from her once-patron Esteban Trueba she ''does'' make it big in the capital, reinvents herself as the most beautiful and smartest prostitute there, is a BenevolentBoss to her fellow sex-workers [[spoiler: and repays the favor by saving Esteban's granddaughter Alba from the military.]]



* ''VideoGame/YandereSimulator'': Kokona Haruka is a friendly, cheerful girl who goes to school with Yan-chan. [[spoiler:She's also involved in CompensatedDating, which can bring great shame to a girl and her family... except she only does it to help her father get out of debt. Technically compensated dating doesn't ''have'' to involve sex, but it often does, and it's implied that Kokona goes beyond kissing for the sake of getting more money. She doesn't want her friends to get mixed up in her troubles -- should you have Yan-chan offer to help her, Kokona pleads with her to not get involved. If you do help, Kokona's so grateful to Yan-chan that she agrees to back off of the boy they both like out of gratitude.]]

* A woman named Miljuschka once whored herself into a Nazi camp during WorldWarTwo, and then blew the whole thing up. More of an ActionGirl, and a pretty grim one too.

Contrast with the GoldDigger; compare with The HighClassCallGirl and EthicalSlut. In TheWildWest, this character is properly called a "Soiled Dove".
