* IronWoobie: The situations they are in makes a lot of the protagonists this; in fact, they all may fall into this category at various points. Special mention to:

**Clotee, who grew up in slavery.

**Julie, separated from family and friends and forced to endure persecution in pre-Holocaust Vienna. She then suffers what can only be called instances of PTSD in America.

**Nannie Little Rose, a Native American girl forcibly assimilated in a BoardingSchoolOfHorrors.

**Bess Brennan, who goes blind and has to deal with the challenges and prejudice toward disability in her era.
***Her friend Eva doubly qualifies, since she not only endures, but exceeds all expectations and [[spoiler: becomes a singer and masseuse.]]
