Ferociously proud and somewhat vain, Marie-Soleil Tougas likes to be impressive and to be considered special and unique. She is not timid, meek, or self-effacing, and is rarely content with staying in the background or in a subordinate position. She is a natural leader, and does not take orders from others very well.

Whatever Marie-Soleil does, she does it in a unique, dramatic, individual way. She likes to put her own personal stamp on it.
Marie-Soleil Tougas also has a very strong sense of dignity, self-respect, and personal honor and is deeply offended if someone treats her in a humiliating or dishonorable way.
