1 Emotional: Her emotions can get in the way throughout the book, one example is on page 52 where she decides to "go feral" and live in the wild for a week to get through her depressed feelings. This shows how her emotions drive her actions
2 Loner: On page 47 she danced by herself and it is also said that she spent all night outside in the park and even slept out there, she tends to keep things to herself and spend more time by herself. This could also be because at this point she does not fully trust Wahram or feel all that comfortable around him.
3 Daring: On page 5 she is described as someone who is "more inclined than most to try things just to see." She is especially daring as on the next page it describes her as one of the sunwalkers and this is a daring activity as you put yourself at risk to see the sun up close.
4 Creative: She’s a designer of terrariums which is a job that takes a lot of creativity to make an ecosystem out of nothing. She designed the Wegener and its ecosystem as well.
5 Impulsive: She often does things without being cautious and this can put her in danger, and example is on page 52 like mentioned before, she spends her time in the wild and finds herself in a dangerous situation with a cat which wouldn't have happened if she weren’t so impulsive
1 Calm: By reading his interactions with Swan you can see that he is calm and patient with Swan. Many times when someone might get frustrated with her, like on page 42 and 43, he remains calm and understanding of her feelings and is friendly with her.
2 Curious: On page 48 with the elephants he is very curious to see the elephants, and on page 20 he was very interested in analyzing the paintings in the art museum showing how interested in learning and seeing things he is.
3 Awkward: Swan describes him as "slow, rude autistic, boring" (27), this feeling doesn't last for the rest of the book but he can be awkward sometimes and not the best at first impressions.
4 Intelligent: He is educated in the arts and history, showcased by his references to Venice, Socrates, and renaissance art. An example would be on page 20 where he studied the painting "Paradise" by Tintoretto.
5 Reserved: Compared to Swan he is not very outgoing or expressive. An example to show this would be also on page 20 and 21 where he does not answer his thoughts about the paintings and does not give any thoughts other than "I'm not sure"
B) The author passes judgement on his introduction to Wahram, he immediately describes him through the eyes of swan as toad like and makes you see him as she does, which her first impressions are not very positive. He makes him look unappealing and repulsive in a way by highlighting his flaws, for example on page 23 "his pop eyes took on a look of alarm". This type of description shows how the author wants you to feel about him, and in this case it’s pretty negative. I feel that he only passes judgements on characters to put you in the perspective of Swan and to see how she sees others as she is the main character and the one that the book follows.
