  • Dark and Troubled Past: To get a evil step father who wants to hurt her, lose a sister and a mother all within weeks of one another, and that's only the bits we see.
  • Messianic Archetype She is portrayed as a savior, she then endures a big sacrifice as the means of bringing that salvation about for others, this sacrifice is a fate she does not deserve up to and including death. She finds a group of devoted followers, then is being betrayed by one of these followers, and heavily persecuted by nonbelievers. She ticks most if not all of the boxes.

  • Boom, Headshot: How Blue killed her.
  • Extraordinarily Empowered Girl: Part of the crew who does the whole "plan".

Madame Vera Gorski / Dr Vera Gorski
"You control this world. Let the pain go, let the hurt go, let the guilt go."
Played By: Carla Gugino

  • Sensual Slavs: In the brothel reality where she's the madam. She speaks more seductively there than she does in the real world.

Blue Jones
"It's too late to play the good guy!"
Played By: Oscar Isaac

  • Affably Evil: In his brothel form, it's almost like he wants to get caught.
  • Attempted Rape: In both forms. In the brothel world, he decided to make Baby Doll his instead of giving her away. In the real world, he tries to have his way with her after she was lobotomized.

The Doctor / The High Roller
"I've seen some tortured souls..."
Played By: Jon Hamm

  • Anti-Villain: All in all, he's not an evil person. In his real form, he admits taking brains out of young ladies is slightly wrong and then in the directors cut wants to know a person for themselves and give them total freedom for once in their lives. In the dream world, he's a gentleman who wants to give Baby Doll a mutually pleasurable experience.
  • The Charmer: In his brothel form. Comes with being played by Jon Hamm.
  • Chivalrous Pervert: In his brothel form. He wanted Baby Doll for himself, but he wasn't going to force himself onto her if she wasn't willing. This is a parallel with the real doctor on how he wants to do his job, but he doesn't want to force the lobotomy on her.
  • Hospital Hottie: He's a Doctor and played by the very handsome Jon Hamm.
  • Intimate Open Shirt: When he and Baby Doll are about to make love.
  • Nice Guy: In the brothel, he's a charming and friendly man who shows Baby Doll some much needed kindness.
