"[Strong character], female" not "[Strong female], character"

Someone with her own identity, personality, agenda, and story purpose. She does not need to be a strong person, rather she should be a strong, well-developed character.

When in doubt, use the Plinket test: Can you describe the character without saying what they looked like, what kind of costume they wore, or what their profession or role in the story was?

Suggestions welcome.

I agree with all except Claudia. All she ever did was whine....I know why Lestat was at his wits end with her. Louis even kinda got bored of her after a while. Whilst Louis was trying to be a fatherly figure to her, she was trying to treat him as a lover. She was well in over her head for a 10 yr old. I never understood why she couldn't have just been a strong woman in the sense that she lived her own life instead of trying to wreck everyone else's...
