PERSONALITY & HISTORY
Emma is a very damaged and conflicted woman. The foster system turned her into a very self-reliant, jaded young woman at a very early age. Emma learning quickly to rely only on herself and not let people get too close. The hardest lesson was learnt at the age of three, when the Swan's sent her back to the orphanage after having a child of their own. Emma was left feeling like she couldn't be loved, like she was unloveable. This was the start of Emma hardening her heart.
Since Neal; her one-time love, Emma has honed her instinct, building up her own code and trusting herself in every aspect. She prides herself on knowing when a person is lying, something she calls 'her superpower', and trusting nothing at face value. She doesn't allow herself to be jerked around, doesn't let anyone else make her choices for her, never asks for help and keeps everyone at arms length for self-preservation.
Emma is a survivor. She's learned used to being on her own, and her own life experiences have made her a sucker for the underdog. Against her better judgement, she will compromise herself to help those in need and fight for what is right. She's a firm believer that no one should let anyone tell them how to run their own lives, and that they should stand up for what they believe in.
For all that Emma pushes people away, she is fiercely protective of the small number of people she is close to. Since Henry found her, she's become very protective of him, even after she tried not to get close to him. She knew that he had a life that she was never a part of, since she gave him up. And while she wanted to tell him that she couldn't be in his life, there was a part of her that wanted to get to know her son, and that small part of her that just didn't trust the woman that adopted Henry. She's found herself growing more attached to the little boy who wanted a relationship with the woman who gave him up. There's the small part of her knows that maybe it's not right for Henry...but she can't help but feel attached to him. Emma, selfishly, wants to know if Henry can love her.
While Emma's let down her walls a little since coming to Storybrooke, and has actually allowed herself to start to let people in, she still has problems trusting people. She's used to being on her own, and still getting used to the idea of letting others in. Emma does have a small group of friends now, people she trusts, people she believes she can rely on, and is attempting to mend her own relationship with her parents, since the curse broke. Emma's sense of justice and nobility comes mostly from her new found position of authority, where people rely on her and look to her for guidance, something she's never had before, but is finding herself good at.
вυllѕнιт deтecтor: emma can usually tell when someone is lying, like a little bell going off in her head. it tends to work best when she doesn't care about anything surrounding the circumstances, as when she has a vested interest in the matter, her heart screws with her mind. the skill is best put to use catching bond jumpers or calling people out on being asses.
every lιттle тнιng ѕнe doeѕ ιѕ мagιc: emma has a strong sense of magic, something innate within her. emma has the ability to move objects from one place to another, create small items out of nothing (replications of items emma knows), use raw magic as a weapon, create light and heal people. emma's magic is tied to her emotional state, the more emotional she becomes the more unstable her magic, however her acceptance of her magic has made it more manageable and controllable for emma.
ғιndιng people нυnтιng тнιngѕ: in boston and beyond, emma worked as a bounty hunter, this has given her numerous skills in locating people, manipulating people, running in heels, lock picking, brawling, scaling down buildings and kicking tooshy.
тнιѕ мy нearт and yoυ're noт geттιng ιт: as a product of true love, emma's heart cannot be take from her chest. which...yay. considering who she ends up around most of the time. freaking heart stealing weirdos.
