Get the Temperative mug.
A girl who is indifferent, sarcastic, and bipolar. The complete opposite of what her name means- 'moderation and self control'. She cares a lot about friends and is very loyal, but doesn't like to show it. She can be very proud, too, and doesn't like to accept help from others. Generally doesn't trust either.

Might curse a lot.
