    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.

    The ways of man and hound are not enough. I come to you, spirits of the old forest, I who build fences, I who came with fire and steel to drive you away. I come to you because fear has made my arms weak. I ask you for unforgiving rage to make them strong again.

    Kill the hound in my heart, and grow strong from the meat on its bones. In its place, give me the wolf.
