    I don't know that there's such a thing as advice in regards to her character - the movie she's from is one of the worst DBZ ones in terms of characterization of the villains.

    You can do anything with her, so long as it's consistent it could work.

    Fair point, I'm trying for competent and amoral with a bit of a temper. I also wanted to say thanks by the way it was your depiction of her that inspired me to use her in this project.

    Just remember her age while playing with her - a whole bunch of authors have trouble making characters that are supposed to be centuries/millenia old FEEL that old.

    The biggest indicator for that, is how the 'old' character handles surprises - generally the more life one's lived, the more 'been there, done that, and I KNOW freaking/flustering is 0% helpful'.

    This can be harder than it seems.

    Some examples of this:
    -Someone walks in on Zangya while she's naked? Why should she care if the equivalent of an infant monkey sees her?
    -There's going to be bad shit going on for the next few years - say, she's forced to work for someone? Treat it more like having to do something dumb for a week to pay back a bet with a friend - maybe irritating, but not something to mind.

    Also besides all that, don't forget she IS a pillage-and-conquer style space pirate.

    Barring someone who could smash her face in telling her so, there's no real reason she should CARE about local laws, where they fly in the face of what she wants.
