Non-Bratty, Valor-filled, Selfless, Heroines and Heroes

This is the list for heroines (and heroes may be included as well) that are not bratty! They don't have to be perfect but please, please no bratty girls.

Things that disqualify them from the list:
1. Boy Bouncers: you know the type they have more than one boy under their spell and so "bounce" back and forth between them and never really care about either one.
2. Easy (As in being completely morally bankrupt.)
3. Selfish, Everything is about them. Nobody really enjoys being around selfish people so why would I want to read about them?
4. Ultra snobby self reliant: When someone tries to rescue them (and succeeds) they instantly get mad and say "I could do it myself." Usually these types rebel against all authority (even those that are good), get into tons of trouble and blames it on everyone else and yell at anyone who offers a suggestion.

Any genre of fiction is welcome! Just no main characters that you wouldn't want to be your best friend.

Some great examples of non-bratty girls:

If they try to save someone or something even though they could get hurt or die.
If they manage to see through the beast's exterior to the man underneath.
If they at least try to help those around them or feel sorry for those they cannot.
If they realize when they have made a mistake and try to fix it.
