Hooray for obscure literary characters! I loved The Magicians (Alice is a good choice). Yvaine too - have you seen the graphic novel version of Stardust?
The Dark is Rising is a great series.
I'm thinking of Mrs. Which, Whatsit or Who in a Wrinkle in Time. Also Mistress Weatherwax or Miss Treason of The Wee Free Men series.....
