Angelica hero worships Xavier, and instinctively turns to him for guidance. She takes his approvals and disapprovals to heart, and tries her hardest to live up to and beyond his standards. If the Professor asked her to do a drill ten times, Angelica would do it eleven times, just to make sure she had tried hard enough. Angelica doesn’t always understands the reasons for the Professor’s actions, but she loyally trusts him to do the right and moral thing. She doesn’t try to monopolize the Professor’s time, but she often feels that if she spent more time in his instruction, she would be able to understand her powers better than she does. She continually feels grateful that Xavier has chosen her to attend the institute, and would do almost anything to keep from disappointing him or being kicked out. She calls him Professor Xavier.
Angelica enjoys spending time in Tessa’s company, seeing her as the big sister that Angelica never had. She looks forward to the fun times that Tessa plans, and is glad that Tessa is around to act as a balancing agent to Xavier’s seriousness. Angelica wishes that she could talk to Tessa about everyday problems or concerns that she has, but due to Tessa’s busy schedule often feels slightly intimidated to asking Tessa to sit down and talk to her, as Angelica does not want to be wasting Tessa’s precious time. Angelica is slightly envious of Tessa’s obvious longstanding friendship with the professor, and occasionally wonders if it might have been something more.
Angelica can relate to him easiest out of the instructors. She is in admiration of both his intelligence and his apparent comfortableness with his mutant status. She has no problems going to ask him for help with her class work, and thinks he is a great teacher. She’s a proud member of the Hank McCoy fanclub. She’s not sure what someone like Mr. McCoy is doing as a teacher, but very glad that Mr. McCoy works at the institute.
Angelica is in awe of Jean Grey, and has said so out loud at least once. Angelica sees Jean Grey as the kind of girl that she ought to be, and picks the fellow red head as a kind of role model to follow. The two of them remain on rather good and friendly terms, and Angelica would like to be closer friends, but is intimidated by what she perceives as Jean’s perfection.
((Am I going to get shot if I wonder if Jean counts as a Mary-Sue?))
Angelica isn’t sure what to think of Estella Rey, and trouble relating to her. She’s willing to go to Estella for academic help, but otherwise Angelica is not sure what the two of them have in common. She doesn’t actively avoid Estella, but doesn’t try to spend extended periods of time around her if she can help it. Angelica is sure that they’d get along better if they opened up more to each other and found more things that they could relate to each other on, but she unsure if she should be the one to make the first move.
Scott is the boss, and not much else. Angelica sees him as the inherent leader of the group, other than Professor X, and willingly obeys orders during training exercise without question. In social situation however, she’s not sure she wants to hang around him, as he seems rather uptight and blunt. Overall, she respects him for who he is, but is still nervous of his attitude.
Hands down, Olivia kind of freaks Firestar out. Angelica cannot understand Olivia’s inhumanness, and lack of a moral center. While she feels sorry for Olivia and can relate to the parent’s rejection of her mutant self, Angelica is afraid to get close to her. She maintains a tolerant attitude towards her, but wouldn’t not miss Olivia if Olivia left the institute. She does not understand why Professor X allowed Olivia to join, but assumes that given Olivia’s personality, it was probably to help Olivia control her powers as well.
Angelica would say that James is a friend of hers, as their personalities are rather similar. She likes talking to him outside of class about random things, if she can even get him to pay attention to her. Sometimes she’ll just sit and watch him play games. She’s working up to asking him to teach her how to play, but she’s still a bit too shy to ask. She admires his intelligence, and thinks it’s kind of cute that he’s so shy, like her.
She thinks he looks strange, and still does, but she’s more used to it by now. She calls him Kenji, and finds him a bit fascinating. His powers seem really complicated, but she just likes the cat. She will make excuses to spend time around him just to pet the cat, even though she’s not interested in conversation. She’s working up the nerve to ask him how to teach her how to do the meditation, as she suspects it may help her control her own powers as well.
CHRISTOPHER LEE GRYPHON
Angelica doesn’t know what to think Chris. She feels a bit uncomfortable when he shows off, and wishes he would calm down and be sensible. Yes, he’s a funny character, but it seems like he doesn’t care enough. She doesn’t have anything against him, for he’s rather nice and friendly, even if it’s an absent minded sort of friendly. She can’t make her mind up about him. It doesn’t help that she thinks he’s kinda cute.
