Vin from Mistborn

Brandon Sanderson’s Mistborn trilogy tells the story of a heroic female protagonist who overthrows thousands of years of oppression, social class divides, and magical foes. Set in a feudal, post-apocalyptic world, Vin is the illegitimate offspring of an oppressive nobleman and a ska (slave class) woman. Such unions are forbidden in Vin’s society, because the children are able to develop unearthly Allomantic superpowers (which they can access by ingesting certain metals). Usually, an Allomancer will have one unusual ability; but a Mistborn, like Vin, possesses them all. On the Mistborn trilogy book covers, Vin wears all-black underneath her signature gray mist-cloak, and carries two obsidian daggers.
