I have a female character whose parents died when she was less than 1 year old. She grew up in an orphange for girls in a large city, in a very poor neighborhood. (The genre here is science fiction, btw, so the place she grows up is actually a human city of a rather populous planet without any social services other than what is provided by a religious group that runs the orphanage). She is also a "half" member of a racial minority group that is generally treated poorly across the human galaxy. This also plays into problems she runs into (exclusion, suspicious, marginalization, etc.) The obvious flaws I've come up with which seem rather cliche stem from the faulty belief that she doesn't deserve to be loved, as even her own parents "abandoned" her. This is reinforced by a steady-stream of racism that she experiences growing up. Basically my question is, what other major flaws or strengths do you think might logically develop from this background? The plot essentially involves her being a highly successful lawyer and financially supporting the orphanage she grew up in, but is visited on her 30th birthday and learns that she is actually an heiress to the most wealthy corporatocracy in the known universe. She leaves the planets of her birth, and trouble ensues when she meets her actual family, basically a bunch of insanely spoiled and entitled brats, and her integration into the family business.
