    You can pigeonhole any character into a category if the requirements are broad enough. For instance, that list also describes the cast from Firefly:

    Charming Lead- Mal
    Naive Minx-Kaylee
    Wise Mentor-Book
    Bitch- Inara
    Murderous Sociopath-Jayne

    Or Order of the Stick:

    Charming Lead-Roy
    Naive Minx-Haley
    Wise Mentor-Durkon
    Bitch-Vaarsuvius (well, s/he may not have breasts, but it fits otherwise)
    Murderous Sociopath-Belkar

    Man, these are character archetypes. You might as well deride them for the cliché of speaking English.

    A father taken by time, a brother dead by my own hand.
    With this work behold my grief, in Stone and shifting sand.
