1. Amy

She has lived her whole life in a prison, but she never felt like a prisoner until she left it. Once the valued supporter of her family, she became its disgrace. The fierce loyalty which had made her so proud of helping them, now choked her like a hand to her throat whenever Father or Fanny were ashamed of her, unable to speak a word in her own defense. Living for others, her greatest strength, is also her greatest weakness.

Marrying Arthur Clennam is the most selfish thing she's ever done.

She could not be happier.
