Vambre is a young woman of average height, with long, violet hair and maroon eyes. Her usual attire consists of a dark turquoise leotard with short black sleeves, gloves and boots trimmed black, and a flowing yellow cape. She additionally sports a pair of neon lime circular earrings and a headband, with a black belt tied by a neon lime buckle, where she keeps her Magiswords. She is noticeably shorter than her brother, Prohyas.
Vambre is kind but aggressive. Like her brother, she is very adventurous, seeking to go out on many a quest in order to prove themselves as warriors. She fancies herself as a refined woman, preferring tea to coffee, eating proper food and acting politely. She does however has occasional moments of acting like her brother, resulting in junk food binges, bouts of laziness and childish behavior. She dislikes it when people pick on her brother, and will defend him when necessary, but also claims nobody is allowed to harm him EXCEPT for her. She despises pants, going out of her way to dress in any way that avoids covering her legs.
Vambre often says "och" (sometimes transcribed as "ock"), as a nod to her British accent, usually in reaction to misfortune or pain. She also has an irrational fear of squirrels, dating back to a childhood incident when squirrels harassed her while collecting acorns. She can be be somewhat impulsive, often acting without thinking which leads to her getting into trouble. She doesn't give up easily; even though she has no skills or magic of her own, she does what she can to win fights and help her friends. Her tenacity can work against her however, as she's often unaware she is in fact torturing those she cares about despite her best intentions.
