Personality: She can be a fun person to be around, but has quick temper problems and may start yelling and get upset about something very unexpectedly(Representing Faroese weather, very unexpected and violent.... I watched a couple videos o_o). She gets doesn't get offended easily, unless you bring up whaling or family. She does not hold very many grudges and will still accept you.

Many people mistake her for a sheep loving maniac, but she just likes them enough to not kill her own sheep and take New Zealand's and Iceland's for food.
. She can get a bit greedy when it comes to fishing and fishes so much that there isn't enough for the rest of the place, but tries to keep it to a limit.

She is accused of killing them violently and slowly and killing them to show maturity or toughness.
She hasn't experienced much and sometimes doesn't know what people are talking about, such as McDonald's. She is a bit of an oddball to some of the world and enjoys British foods such as Cradbury and fish and chips.
