Even though she knew her way around the labyrinth and helped Graham escape from the dungeon and was friends with all of Mordack's monsters living in the maze.... she still stayed in the kitchen and was scared of everyone. She hardly seemed capable then.Then, Abdul Alhazred captures her in her own tower. Yes, she sent out Sing-Sing so she wasn't isolated from the rest of the world. But she has guard dogs loyal to her following Alhazred's orders and she couldn't convince them she didn't want to stay in the tower? Really? REALLY? Then she actually tries to get Alexander to leave so she can, what, stay locked in a tower? It's not like anyone in that family has ever saved her before, right? Oh wait....Anyways, she really doesn't do anything at all until Alexander hands her a dagger. She didn't have anything blunt and heavy in her bedroom to beat someone over the head with? I find that hard to believe. Anyways, all she did with the dagger was stab the bad guy in the shoulder -- if she was really all that capable, she'd have stabbed him in the neck after all of that. Seriously. Does. Not. Deserve. To. Live!So, while she's brave and she's certainly adventurous enough to be a solid match for Alexander, I think our Damsel in Distress factor here proves she's incapable of saving herself. For me, that's an issue.

Also Alhazred was another nasty person to get involved with. He is a murder and Cassima found safety in her room. I think the same idea applies here too with the genie like Mordack , if she escaped where would she go? The genie could always find her, he was following Alexander all over the place. She had no choice but to stay where she was, but I still like her.
