Cathering - awkward thin figure, unlike the typical gothic heroine who would've been stunningly beautiful, encapivating, strong, unusual, mysterious family history. Catherine comes from a normal background her she was taught at home with her mothers, her father is a clergyman and he didn't have ' a habit of locking up his daughters' and her mother birthed 10 children with no problems. There was no death of a family member. Classic anti-type gothic heroine that Austen has used to parody the gothic.

Isabella Thorpe - Vain, 'extremely handsome', not very intelligent, flirty, many may have thought she was a more appropriate gothic heroine, her father died her mother is a widow. 

Miss Tilney…
