The curse of specialization. It isn't so much that if the family has a 
"pretty one" that no one else can be pretty at all, as that if there is a 
"pretty one" no one else can DO "pretty" since that would be a violation of 
territory. Instead one does the "smart one" or the "artistic one" or the 
"rebel".

IIRC The bio said virtually nothing nice about DWJ's mother. It appears to 
have been a toxic relationship all round.
