~||ETHICS AND MOTIVATIONS:||~
Personality: Upon first meeting Maple, she would most likely seem either friendly and brash or hot-headed and reckless. Maple is determined, honest and easy to impress, appreciating all types of skills. She's very good at reading other people's emotions, however, she's a bit blind as to how to deal with said emotions. Maple is reckless and constantly overestimates her abilities, causing her to ignore the warnings of others and do what she wants, however dangerous the outcome might be.
