Zaffaera isn't exactly normal. In fact, if you ever told her she was at all ordinary, she would secretly hate you for the rest of the day. That's right, the whole day. That's if she's in a bad mood. Evidently, Zaffaera does not hold grudges very long.
She is usually cheerful and easygoing. Not much bothers her (at least, that you could tell. Zaffaera is more of the "suffer-in-silence" type. But as mentioned above, she's not upset over a lot of things). She will "go with the flow" if she has to, but otherwise, prefers to cause as much turbulence as possible (as long as it doesn't raise too much attention). Zaffaera is very rebellious. But not in the usual way. The very last thing she would ever do would be to openly disrespect an authority, or purposely attract attention. Zaff prefers quieter, less messy methods. If, let's say, everyone had to draw a nice ripe banana, she would be the one to draw the over-ripe banana. That's more her style.
"People are like sheep, they just follow each other blindly. I'm not a sheep, though. I'm not a fan of sheep."
The dragoness also has a soft spot for, well, anything living. Crush a bug? She'll glare at you like you've killed her cat, and, by the way, don't kill her cat or she'll never speak to you again. Cut down a tree? Bad idea. Kick a puppy? Eh, that's fine. She hates puppies.
That's a lie, she only dislikes puppies. Don't quick puppies.
Zaffaera is very shy, and will usually avoid social interaction at all costs. But when she is surrounded by strangers, she sometimes cares less about what others think (oddly enough). More often than not, she's difficult to have a conversation with. Zaffaera tends to mumble or speak in circles or even trail off into a completely different (and no less confusing) thought.
However, when faced with one of her passions, she may talk endlessly and without tire. Zaffaera enjoys conversing on important, deep, or meaningful subjects rather than smalltalk, and finds the later tedious and irritating. Otherwise, she is usually very quiet (either that, or you'll be half deaf and wondering whether or not she's sane. She has a habit of shrieking at random, although she has begun to be able to control it. Even still, if she thinks a silence has lasted too long, you might want to cover your ears). Her quietude makes her an excellent listener, but not great at helping—although she wishes that she could.
"I'm not making any sense, am I?"
Zaffaera is a very deep thinker. You'll often find her lost in thought, staring into space. Oh yeah, and she loves space.
She is generally very calm and impassive. She doesn't like it when people can tell what she is thinking, and can easily wipe her mind. She is highly sensitive when it comes to reading others' emotions (which she can do with a relatively high degree of accuracy), and knows and understands people quite well.
Though she has high self esteem and often thinks quite fondly of herself, she is exceedingly self conscious. Zaffaera worries too much about what others think, and she knows it, but can't help it.
She likes to please and make others happy, and will usually hide her dislike for others if it is at all possible. Zaff doesn't like to be a drag, and prefers to avoid awkward situations by leaving before they happen. Another reason she doesn't speak much is because she knows people usually don't care about what she has to say. She does often put others' needs before her own, but only within reason. She is very capable of saying "no" or backing out of situations that cross her values, and she holds her values very dearly.
"...so I thought it was dying, but then its eyes were both on the side of it's head and so were its gills fin and it was just flopping there in the sand, and it's supposed to look like a dead fish because apparently it's a Flat F—oh...nevermind."
Sharp-witted and clever, Zaffaera is especially sarcastic. Sarcasm is her mother tongue.
She is a major procrastinator, although she likes to be organized. Coming up with plans is no problem...it's the "sticking to the plan" part where the difficulties arise.
Zaff is slow to succumb to pressure. The more you push her to do something, the less likely she is to do it.
