Bell is an intelligent, well read and fearless young woman with a desire to live life to the fullest and an absolute hatred of shoes. She is confident, stubborn as a mule, and outgoing. She's the king of girl who will approach a stranger in the middle of a crowded train station and strike up a conversation--no matter what they look like. She has a love for the underdog, and once you have her loyalty nothing and no one will shake it. One day, she may very well bury a body for you. It's good to remember that.
She is also very affectionate. She has little concept of personal space, and is quite likely to drape herself over your lap or lean on you or even kiss your cheek--whether you've been friends for years or just met five minutes ago.
Bella is extremely loyal, to the point that she would put herself in harms way for those that she cares about. Once you have her friendship, it is nearly impossible to shake her. That being said, if you're her friend you might as well get used to the idea of having no personal space. She'll lean on you, cuddle up to you, drape herself across you, likely kiss you, and it's not unlikely that she might even curl up in bed with you. She's the best friend your significant other will likely hate--but then, she'll dislike them as well, because no one is good enough for her 'family'.
Bell's straightforward nature and her hot temper tend to make enemies of people. She's not exactly an easy person to get along with, and if you rub her the wrong way from the start, it's not going to be easy to break that mindset with her.
Ah, romance. Now, here's where things get complicated.
Bell is a relationship anarchist. To put it in layman's terms: she doesn't like societal rules when it comes to her relationships. She is a firm believer that the people in the relationship should be the ones to define the relationship.
To add onto that, she is polyamorous. She doesn't believe that you should restrict your affections to one person. She'll tell you this before you ever agree to a relationship with her, so if you get hurt later--that's your own fault, isn't it?
