Personality & Traits
Carmen enjoys people with a sense of humor and enjoys socializing. She believes that having a sense of humor and being able to sympathize with the men serving under her, makes her a bit more down to earth and therefore they can trust her. In combat situations, you need someone whom you can trust to have your back and not just someone whom you respect. She does try to curb his personal emotions as best as possible though in front of her men, as it does not help to see a leader who can't control themselves.
While there are times to be by the book, Carmen is open to trying new things if she believes they will work. She has been through enough wartime to know that the book is useless when you are underfire or pinned down by the enemy.
Carmen is easy-going, but is always a strict disciplinarian while on duty and expects nothing short of perfection. She is a brilliant tactician and highly skilled soldier she can change a mission plan in the middle of a mission when she see problems arising further down the line and won't strict to a plan she knows will likely fail.
