Despite her quiet, mature, and sometimes somber appearance, Cassandra has a gentle personality with both humans and pokemon; she can be surprisingly warm and social, and she isn’t afraid to openly express herself when she feel comfortable around others. As much as she enjoys some solitude, she greatly enjoys and prefers good company as well. She tends to become more solemn, and even reclusive in mood if she’s left to herself for an extended time, but will easily recover to welcome a friend when they visit.

Cassandra prefers to follow the Golden Rule in her interactions with others, and often expects others to do the same, even though she understands how it is not always realistic in some situations. She remains civil and polite with everyone she interacts with, but may still show subtle biases towards — and against — others, based not only on how others treat her, but also how they treat one another. These biases are apparent in the quality of her interactions; she enjoys pleasant, engaging conversations with friendly individuals, but her conversations becomes more stinted and blunt with those she has reservations with.

Regardless of her true opinion on the other, Cassandra strives to follow a philosophy of being “the better person” even during negative interactions or arguments. However, she occasionally struggles with keeping herself in check, so as not to act in an abrasive or condescending manner, but there are rare moments when this behavior may slip.

Cassandra’s reasons for any dislike towards another often stems from her low tolerance for needless negativity. She doesn’t appreciate when others go out of their way to antagonize one another, or otherwise promote animosity or chaos. Cassandra generally keeps these opinions to herself, and will refrain from interfering to let others work it out. But she will speak up towards either or both sides of a conflict if she deems it necessary.

At her core, Cassandra is very compassionate toward others. She dislikes seeing others upset, and will do what she can to advise or help those she cares for. She does understand the occasional need to vent, and doesn’t mind being a sounding board to others when necessary, even when she has to put her own emotions aside. At times, Cassandra has the capacity to extend this empathy to others that she may have reservations against, and may place them aside temporarily if the other genuinely needs her help.

  • While she doesn’t mind having her thigh markings visible in her default outfit, Cassandra will cover them up as necessary and during her work, usually with alternate outfits.
  • Usually comfortable or at least neutral in the presence of most ghost and dark types, but can become more wary in certain situations, due to her typing and their tendency to cause trouble…
  • Of her psychic abilities, Cassandra is able to use effectively use telepathy, but rarely uses it for prolonged periods to prevent mental strain. This is mainly due to her psychic typing being ‘secondary’ and more recently acquired. She does, however, practice using telepathy with others
