Jennifer Lawler

Yes, I think that’s a hard one–she is duty-bound, that’s her nature, and so she’s going to go along with what her authorities tell her to do. But there’s a difference between “duty-bound” and “passive” so it seems at least possible that she could be a more active character.

I mean, there are plenty of reluctant heroes that I don’t consider passive even though they’re not champing at the bit to undertake the journey.
