Usually the one looking for freedom and they discover something about themselves that helps them grow as an individual.

Usually the reluctant heroine or the deceptively attractive bad guy. xD
...I'm such a sucker for the hot bad guys it isn't even funny.

It depends... I honestly don't really think about it: I'm not a huge fan of stereotypes in my novels, I really like down to earth, more realistic characters.
