Though Liona Boyd seems powerful and intense in a quiet sort of way (as mentioned in the previous chapter), she is really quite soft, sentimental and vulnerable inside.
Liona has powerful emotional attachments to the past, her family, her childhood, places she associates with safety and security, and her beginnings. It is very important to Boyd to maintain a connection with her roots and heritage and keep family bonds strong. Loyal, devoted, and sentimental, Boyd tends to cling to whatever is dear to her - be it a person, a familiar place, or a cherished possession.
She is sympathetic, nurturing, supportive and very sensitive to the emotional needs of other people. Liona likes to be needed and to care for others, and she often worries about the people she loves. Liona Boyd has a very strong need for a sense of belonging and acceptance, and much of her life centers on her home. She is more concerned about people and their feelings than with power, achievement, or position in society. Kindness, consideration and tenderness are more meaningful to Liona Boyd than any sort of honor the world can bestow.
She is primarily emotional and her views are often dominated by her feelings and her own personal, subjective experiences, rather than reason, logic or abstract principles. It is difficult for her to judge situations fairly and objectively because her personal sympathies and loyalties usually factor in. Liona Boyd takes things very personally and sometimes builds a wall around herself to shield herself from pain and rejection. Liona Boyd feels rather shy and vulnerable at heart. She also tends to be moody and experiences frequent mood swings. Liona Boyd needs to have a place and time in her life to withdraw, introspect, dream and replenish herself; otherwise Liona Boyd becomes cranky and unhappy with those around her.
Liona Boyd functions in an instinctive, irrational manner and likes to immerse herself in creative activities where she can express her feelings, imagination and instincts. Boyd often loves to cook, since it can be both creative and a way to nurture and nourish others. Liona Boyd also has a great affinity for music, because it evokes and communicates feelings that may be difficult or impossible to put into words.
Her compassion, sensitivity, and imagination are Boyd's strong points. Her faults include an inability to let go of the past and move forward, clannishness and prejudice, and a tendency for self-pity when facing hardship.
Liona Boyd craves intense experiences and is attracted to aspects of life that are strange, unfathomable or taboo. Liona may hide her interests or inclinations, except from those who know her very intimately. Liona Boyd is rarely content with herself and her life, and she has an inner urge to continually delve deeper than ever before. Liona is also highly interested in social power and the role that money and economics play in people's lives.
Her vitality is very strong and she is likely to be a workaholic. If Liona Boyd is not careful, she may work so hard that she becomes exhausted, leaving herself open to physical breakdown. Liona Boyd also has a strong drive to win and to dominate others.
