Where Elizabeth can be flat though, and is reliant on Booker and other men in her life for protection and purpose, Eleanor is her own woman. It’s her rebellious streak as a child that kickstarts the story. Even captive, years later, she takes a direct hand in her own rescue - first by slipping Delta supplies via the Little Sisters, and then tooling up as an armoured Big Sister to take responsibility for both her mother and her future. She’s a superb example of a strong, active female character, whose non-magical achievements really leave Elizabeth in the dust.
