This is a melodram, so characters are "cliched" or stereotyped within the requirements of the genre. Yet, Matilda is characterized as "the most accomplished seductress in Europe" though Walker denies she is only the archtypal seductress. Walker describes her as a real person and not the ghost of a cliched insubstantiation.
