Another person's reputation precedes you.
Formerly known as: Their Reputation Precedes Me Sense of identity is an important trait to most fictional characters. It helps define them to the audience for one thing, but it also gives the character their own set of motives and motivations. But unfortunately, often a character has a member of their Badass Family whose reputation precedes them; so much so that people greet Bob not by his name but, "Oh, hey, look, it's Big Bob's son!" or Alice by "Look, It's Alicia's baby sister!" much to their chagrin. Can result in Jumped at the Call as Bob or Alice seek incrasingly more drastic methods of getting out from being under their relative's shadow. Not confined strictly to parent/child or sibling. It can be any family member. The one whose reputation overshadows the other character need not even be a relative. It can be a friend, acquaintance, or person whose legacy they've inherited. Sins of Our Fathers is the Sister Trope wherein the reputation preceding is not a positive one and the character is suffering for the connection to the other.
