An uke is the submissive partner to the seme in a yaoi relationship. The word comes from the verb "to receive."

If the character who has been made the uke is not from a canon that originally has yaoi, there is a very good chance that the character is out of character, and might have even been turned into a woobie. If the characters in question do not usually have a structured top/bottom (i.e. dominant/submissive) relationship, but are referred to as seme and uke, that may be considered a charge.
