Carol & Thomas have sort of opposite personalities of what they should if you go by traditional gender roles. Thomas is very passive, avoids conflict, and does things behind the scenes whenever he can. Carol is forward, combative, aggressive, & doesn’t generally hide her motives. A lot of the time her personality is framed as unpleasant, but she’s actually very truthful and easy to deal with compared to Thomas’s sneaky nature. Framed in another way she would be the obvious hero & he would be the wormy guy. I like upsetting expectations, but from my perspective this is normal since I’m a very passive person who sneaks around. Really though, none of the girls are “girly” in a traditional sense. Not that women like that don’t exist in reality, I just find it hard to work with since I very rarely encountered it in my life. Of course, as I’ve often shown, people aren’t ever just one thing. Shy people can be open and aggressive in situations where they feel comfortable and extroverted people can whither in places they feel uncomfortable.
