In modern parlance the term "hermit" tends to be applied to anyone living a life apart from the rest of society, regardless of their motivation.

I came up with "shermit" & can be applied as the female character as such.

My ex started calling me this "hermit" after we first split up several years ago. I actually found it amusing and so thus I added a spin to it and claimed it as my simply adding an (s) in front of the more masculine form of the word...which is known as "hermit"
In the Friday the 13th series, the character Jason Voorhees was believed to have died after he drowned as a child. However, this later changed when it was revealed that he survived and lived life as a hermit- only to enter a murderous rage when he witnesses the death of his mother seemingly years later (which was during the events of the original film).
In the series Yogi Bear, we see a character Herman the Hermit, who ends up teaming up with a lonely boy to ruin Yogi, Boo Boo (Yogi Bear) and the rest of the characters, Christmas. However, at the end, they're shown the error of their ways.
In the popular anime Dragon Ball, a martial-arts master named Muten Roshi is often referred to as a Turtle Hermit, despite the fact that over the course of the series characters are often visiting or even living in his island home.

A Shermit could be substituted as a female version of all that I just previously referenced above.
