The most well-known badfic character is Mary Sue. Often, however, she is not satisfied with just messing with the lives of the canon characters. She feels she has to create a backstory for herself that involves innocent bystanders. Examples of these are (foster) parents, siblings, teachers, and random rapists.
It happens quite often that PPC agents stumble on original characters in a badfic that are only victims of their circumstances. In such cases there are no or not enough charges against said character to prosecute them as a Mary Sue. These characters are then recruited for the PPC.
There are, however, agents that think it is more humane to put these characters out of their misery all together.
