'''As this is a Death Trope, unmarked spoilers follow,''' though, really, the entire point of the trope is that the death isn't a spoiler to the GenreSavvy viewer, so as far as ''spoiler by definition'' tropes go, this is one of the safer ones. In any case, you have been warned.

* In Creator/CharlotteBronte's ''Literature/JaneEyre,'' the minor character [[TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth Helen Burns]] expires from consumption during a typhus epidemic. Helen's illness is portrayed quire realistically, though. Her general weakness is emphasised far more than the coughing, and she is well enough to more or less function for a long time. Helen, in both character and condition, was based on one of the older Bronte siblings (who died before getting famous), so Charlotte knew what she was talking about.
