The Last Governess (Miss Bell) from The Lives of Christopher Chant. She’s got that pretend-face going on, the same sort of thing Christopher cultivates, and behind it is a very interesting person! She works for Christopher’s horrible uncle, but she’s also a nanny, but she’s also a companion, but she’s ALSO a mysterious business person, etc. She’s such a great baddie; she’s threatening, but you don’t really know why.
The King and his daughter from House of Many Ways. They spend all their time in the library! Cataloging books! I presume they also spend time running the country, but you never see that part.
