* {{Expy}}: Her design looks a lot like an adult version of [[Anime/HeidiGirlOfTheAlps Klara Sesseman]], also their characters and roles in the story are quite similar, with the difference that Susana's actions are due to unrequited feelings instead of friendship and loneliness. Also that while at the beginning Klara is invalidated in a wheelchair and then regains the ability to walk, Susana is upside down since she is first presented as a healthy girl completely and then becomes invalid when losing a leg in an accident.

* AdaptationalVillainy: The anime and manga have her getting up to even more nasty deeds than she committed in the original novel and portray her as being that much more despicable a person.



* BecauseYouWereNiceToMe: The reason for her RescueRomance VillainousCrush on Terry, and possibly why she liked Anthony too.



* TheBully: To just about everyone except her GirlPosse at Boarding School, but particularly to Candy.

* TheBully: To just about everyone except Neil and her GirlPosse at Boarding School, but particularly to Candy.



* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: Despite her lack of empathy for other people, she does care about her brother Neil and is visibly worried for him whenever he gets physically hurt, and also genuinely liked Anthony [[spoiler: to the point where after his passing, she blamed Candy for "killing him" and wanted to take all the roses from his garden to keep as mementos of him.]] Subverted with her and Terry, as she was merely infatuated with him after he'd saved her and treated her nicely, but the moment he goes against her wants and talks to her badly, she resents him and feels nothing of screwing him over along with Candy.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: At one point early into episode 13 when she and Neil are contemplating a way to retaliate at Candy, Neil, without any context, states his plan is "poison." Eliza thinks he means he intends to poison ''Candy'', gasping "Candy?" in a very shocked tone, but Neil tells her that he actually means to poison horses in the stables, a plan she finds more sound. She's got [[BadPeopleAbuseAnimals as much qualms about animal cruelty as her brother does]], but clearly she'd find murder of another person, no matter how much she might hate said person, a step too far even for her.
* EvilRedhead: In the anime movie. Her hair is pink in the anime series.
