Personality[edit | edit source]
Argent is a very goth superheroine, having a strong fondness for the color black and enjoys listening to rock bands. She usually appears calm, serious, stoic, introverted, and possessing a sarcastically dry sense of humor. Despite this, she actually works well with others and displays signs of teamwork with fellow heroes she has only just met. She is also fairly perceptive, knowing when she can handle a situation by herself or not. Though usually calm if things become increasingly dire she will become much more pressing if she has to be. When casually talking with her friends she may, at first, appear introverted and aloof but, in truth, she is kind, friendly, and accommodating. Argent will do whatever it takes to protect innocent people and do what is right, even if means being captured or even killed by her enemies. She would never surrender to a villain and will fight till the bitter end.
