PERSONALITY: Independent | Authoritative | Serious | Domineering | Guarded | Cold | Loyal | Ambitious

Tanja exudes a distant and often cold attitude towards those she doesn’t know. She is not easily impressed and has a dry sense of humor, with a tendency to be extremely blunt if not condescending when dealing with others. That being said, she is noticeably more pleasant and less guarded around her favored subordinates, as well as the few people she would consider allies and friends.

Outside of giving orders and commands, Tanja prefers to only speak as necessary. She otherwise doesn’t open up very much, unless she perceives that the other person takes a genuine interest into the things she likes. She has the capacity to be a caring and reliable person, but at the same time she has her selfish and avaricious tendencies, as well as a few trust issues. Thus, she mainly reserves her loyalty to those she would trust with her life.
