!Fanny Price
* BewareTheNiceOnes: She won't hurt you, but she ''can'' thwart your plans, if she thinks they are self-serving or insensitive.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: When Edmund, with whom she is in love, announces her that he is completely fascinated by Mary Crawford, and asks her what she thinks, she pauses, thinks... and says that she was very polite to her and is very beautiful.
* TheFettered: Others must always feel their importance and know that there is somewhere they can go to when in need, no matter how much it costs to her... or how much she wants to put them in orbit around Mars.
* GuiltComplex
* LoveMartyr
* MrImagination: She lapses in numerous {{IndulgentFantasySegue}}s during the story, but hides it very well.
* NoSocialSkills: Miss Crawford has very beautiful things on her ears, oh, yes this is how it is called... Well and her hair is very, ''very''...
* NotSoAboveItAll: She is very flattered by Miss Crawford's friendship and Henry Crawford's admiration, and even more because she thinks that their motives are at least partly shallow: it proves that she, too, must have gifts which attract even shallow people. She also depsises most of her birth family despite her best efforts to hide it, though it has nothing to do with their social status
