YMMV / The Mysterious Benedict Society

  • The Woobie: Constance. She may be a little brat, but she's especially vulnerable at times, and suffers more than most, since among other things she's the only one to hear voices in her head in the first book once the power of the messages gets boosted slightly, with the worry of what will happen if they're boosted to full power.
    • S. Q. Pedalian could count as this too. Especially when you learn in Prisoner's Dilemma that he's the way he is because Mr. Curtain kept repeatedly brainsweeping him as a means of keeping him docile and confused.
