Personality and character

Lethe is rather harsh and cold, usually only thinking of herself and her twin sister. She is also not much for small talk or compliments, but there are some exceptions. [1]She has a strong hatred for beorc, calling them "human" frequently to show her contempt. [2] She is also a fearless warrior, and an overall intimidating figure.
