This is Elizabeth from the game Bioshock, as you can see she is different from most female characters in that she is dressed modestly and no body parts have been accentuated. Although she is a companion character and not the central character she has been given special talents such as traveling to different universes. So while I wanted to say she resists the stereotypes I cant because as an attempt to keep her from leaving Columbia she is placed in a tower and locked away. This is a tale that certainly isn't new so I would have to say she perpetuates the damsel in distress stereotype.
