A refined and well-mannered personality suiting her status as a noble. But with her status she often struggles to adapt to the ways of Castaway Village and its vastly different cultures and people, but nonetheless strives to help Adol using the knowledge she acquired under her father's tutelage.

She is sometimes irritated with Sahad's behavior however she grew weary of her attitudes after she confessed her problems with Adol. Laxia has a bit of embarassment when she talks with Adol while the latter teases her as if she periodically comes close to confessing her feelings for him.
