Imagine, if it's even possible, that you've been able to read the minds of the people around you as far back as you can remember. That it's as easy and natural to you as breathing -- That it requires so little effort that most of the time you don't even realize you're doing it. You are never in doubt of how anyone is feeling, and are seldom spared the acute knowledge of precisely how others regard you.
It is from this moral quagmire that Queenie Goldstein has managed to rise against the odds. A natural, powerful legilimens on par with the likes of Lord Voldemort, there has never been a time when Queenie wasn't aware of what most people around her were thinking. It ought to have made her cruel, or cynical at the very least, but somehow Queenie has become the exact opposite -- With an empathy that allows her to intuit motivations as well as thoughts, she is a grand champion of humanity and all of its complexities and eccentricities. She is sharply perceptive, yes, but also effusively kind, perhaps even arguably to a fault.
The good news is that Queenie's deep love of people and dauntless generosity generally means that they love her back. She only wants the best for the people around her, and it's difficult to mistake her as anything but genuine.
None of which is to say that Queenie is without her faults. There is an inherent level of manipulation and invasiveness to her unchecked talents regardless of good intentions, and even after a lifetime of having been chastised by her older sister, a fierce stubbornness remains. Queenie sees herself as harmless and well-intentioned, and while she will acknowledge her prying when confronted, she is always at risk of skimming even when she's been asked not to. After living so long with her talent, turning a completely blind eye is difficult to do, and she seldom truly tries.
A side effect of legilimency is a certain level of self-assuredness, and this Queenie has in spades. She's a beautiful woman and a gentle touch during a time when non-magic women in her home country have only had the right to vote for six years. Queenie knows what most people think of her -- The good, bad and occasionally very ugly -- and her attractiveness certainly allows her a level of privilege. The disgusting and cruel notions she's gleaned from others regarding herself means her ego has remained in check, but she sees too the lust and jealousy fueling these emotions, and has no lack of confidence. For a woman, she is in a uniquely powerful position, and can be somewhat indulgent when it comes to stroking her pride. The flip side of this is unfortunately that her sense of self-worth is somewhat skewed, and on some level she sees herself as beguiling and affectionate but little more. She is fantastically powerful and yet has little ambition, allowing that role to be filled by her sister while Queenie contents herself with making coffee and unjinxing the john.
