Jane Eyre is a young lonely woman who received her bachelor's in nursing, and decided to begin a second degree in childhood development. She has complicated family relationships and she feels trapped in her routine. She realized that there is much more to ask from life than what she had, and she decided for a clear and radical cut: new career, new home, perhaps even new Jane?

* GenreSavvy: Jane is savvy from the start. She seems to know that adventure awaits her and that she is in a dangerous situation, and she goes along because she doesn't quite realize the extent. She keeps uploading what happened to her on her vlog as a safety net.



* LovableCoward: Though dignified and generally very nice, Jane is easily scared. However, given the tone of the story and the orientation her suspicion has taken, she is probably a combination of GenreSavvy and ProperlyParanoid.

Added DiffLines:

* LanguageFluencyDenial: Suzanna-Maria Ramirez Gonzalez pulls this tactic off successfully. She speaks only Spanish in front of Jane or Grace Poole. Grace genuinely believes she doesn't understand English and this way, she bothers her way less. Suzanna eventually reveals to Jane that she actually speaks perfect English.

** In episode 75, Diana (sarcastically) suggests Simon should join the Order of St. John, thus referencing his character's original name in the book.

* KidsAreCruel[=/=]TeensAreMonsters: The kids at Private School treated Jane and Helen horribly, even though Jane doesn't complain about anyone in particular. She just hints that when Helen went through chemo, her classmates ridiculed her for losing hair, but the memory is too painful and Jane can't even finish the sentence.

** Grace Poole is ''significantly'' younger than both her composites: Grace Poole was about forty and Mrs Fairfax was in her late fifties or sixties. A clearly case of Pragmatic Adaptation as the cast and crew appear to consist of several friends from school.

* AlmostKiss: In "The King of Hearts" (episode 42), Jane and Edward are flirting and being cute together. He's trying to record her and snap a few photos. Jane gets close and they end up looking into each other's eyes very intensely. They almost kiss, but Jane pulls herself back. Edward has to take a few breaths to recover from the moment.
** Again with [[spoiler: Jane and Simon]], ''twice'', in episode 87.

** More weirdly, [[spoiler:Simon]] makes one to Jane in episode 86, although it's so buried in the scientific lecture he's giving her about the ''basal ganglia'' that’s it’s easy to overlook or dismiss (that is, until he seals it with an AlmostKiss).

* NoSocialSkills: A rare non-InformedAttribute example. Jane is just as awkward in the vlog as in the beginning of the novel, and she screws up every single time she speaks to another human being. (She [[CharacterDevelopment really improves]] over the series, though, as she gains more experience and confidence.)
-->'''Jane:''' ''(about talking to the camera)'' First I'm awkward to people, now I'm awkward to inanimate objects too...
** More obviously, Simon, and in his case it’s usually [[PlayedForLaughs quite funny]] rather than painful.

** Jane and Rochester get heaps of it before their actual RelationshipUpgrade, too. There were close-ups of their hands almost-touching, him teasing her and trying to talk to her etc.

* Spot of Tea: Jane is Canadian, not British, but her love for tea is one of the creators’ ways of paying homage to the story’s English roots (much as in ''WebVideo/TheLizzieBennetDiaries''). In her first video, Jane says she drinks immense amounts of tea, and says she's probably made entirely of Earl Grey, chamomile and mint. Her tea habit comes up in dozens of episodes – in one, she tries a new chocolate mint flavor and jokes about how she’s “going wild”. She is seen using it as a coping mechanism both when she is sick and when she is feeling especially emotional.
** In episode 82, when she’s upset about the funding being cut to the daycare where she works, Jane {{lampshades}} her affection for this trope:

* SugarAndIcePersonality: Jane is adorable and quite sensitive, but she refuses to make a fuss about it. She doesn't want to tell anyone about very personal things. She shows her sweet and kind side mostly to Adele because she loves children and is very fond of her little student.
** Simon suffers more noticeably from this. True to the original novel character, he is externally stoic, pragmatic, and unemotional; however, as the series progresses, we see him show affection to his sisters and even genuine empathy for Jane. By the time of his [[spoiler:proposal to Jane]], we see him go so far as to lose his temper.

* TheUnreveal: Viewers who read the book were really looking forward to Jane meeting Mr Rochester. [[spoiler:First teasing appeared in episode 8 when Jane went for a walk as they met outside in the book, but Jane was only shooting her walk. She really met him on her next walk in episode 10 but he was shown only for a brief moment from a big distance, and then his legs and funky socks were seen: Jane let her camera running while she was examining his sprained ankle. In episode 11, Jane accidentally let her camera on while he was talking to her about her photographs, and the angle was really tricky: it revealed his torso, arms with a tattoo and hands, and then half his face. In episode 12, Adele tried to record their formal family dinner, but unfortunately, she aimed the camera at her father's back. In episode 13, Mr Rochester was dragged into Jane's room because Jane wanted to treat his serious wound. She was filming an entry for her diary and her cam was on. It looked like the viewers would be torsoed again and would see just his body up to his neck or nose, but actually, Jane made him sit down, and his face was finally [[TheReveal revealed]].]]

* WhamEpisode: How much the viewership was actually affected varies based on who knew what was coming from having read the book, but several episodes still qualify.

* YouCantGoHomeAgain: In episode 9, Jane has caught cold and is really sick, which also triggers her homesickness. All the more sad because she doesn't really have her home. The house feels empty and isolated, she doesn't have anybody to talk to; she misses university, but concludes that it was just a room also.
