Overall, Erica is the embodiment of "the bitch goddess,"   a soap opera archetype that "transformed and defined" the soap opera genre. Irna Phillips , Nixon, and William J. Bell created the archetype in the 1960s and it became one of their defining legacies.  The archetype is an assertive Cinderella who goes after material things. This was a change from the heroines of the radio soap operas who waited to be rescued by men. As the bitch goddess, Erica started out as "a conniving teenage vixen " and transformed into "the femme fatale incarnate."  The characters in this category are outrageous, exaggerated, financially disadvantaged and determined to change that. Other characters in this archetype are Lisa Grimaldi ( As the World Turns ), Rachel Davis ( Another World ) and Tracy Quartermaine ( General Hospital ).  General Hospital ' s Luke Spencer later became daytime television's first bitch god.
