Cupid is a very sweet girl, and often goes out of her way to help others in need, even taking time to help find a lost pet or helping someone cross the street.
Cupid is very close to her mother, and as such followed in her steps and became a master archer, and eventually expanded her repertoire to include firearms. She doesn't like her father though, and becomes easily annoyed by his antics. She dislikes her red hair, as it resembles her father's, and when she discovered her Superspeed, she became mad that she was more like him, but she truly loves him deep down, and even loves her hair color and ability, but she would never admit it.
She deeply cares for Sparrow, and would do anything to keep him from becoming too wild and getting himself in trouble. She believes that Sparrow and her are soulmates, and wants to make sure that nothing will come between them.
Cupid's most notable feature is her light, red hair which resemble's her fathers. She is constantly praised for it, but she doesn't think it's too special. She constantly has her hair in a ponytail, like her mother. She also has green eyes, and normally has a big smile on her face.
Cupid normally wears spaghetti strap shirts of varying colors and designs, with stylised angel wings on the back of all of her shirts, and short jeans. She also has many pairs of shoes, and has a vast collection of them. She also has multiple head bands.
She wears these clothes for both missions and normal wear.

Cupid doesn't seem to mind Blue, but doesn't trust him/her as much as Sparrow. She just thinks of Blue as another potential friend.
Cupid likes to think of Ellament as her best girlfriend, and always asks Ellament to hang out with her. Ellament doesn't feel the same, but still thinks of Cupid as a friend, and agrees to go along with whatever Cupid plans.
Cupid likes to think of Brute as an unofficial mascot for The Group. Brute recognizes Sparrow's relationship with Cupid, and treats her better than most, but still only follows Sparrow and for the most part ignores her.
