Personality

Richelle initially appears as a confident keener. Her greatest ambition is to become the Dance Captain of A-Troupe and she is willing to do just about everything to achieve this dream. Richelle can be close-minded and wary of change, shown in how angry she is when the members of J-Troupe have to re-audition for their spots.[2] Despite her apparent conceit and bossiness, she struggles with certain tasks, such as: getting people's attention[5] and bargaining.[2] Richelle is willing to listen to others' advice if it will benefit her, as she deeply respects her superiors, but she still struggles with criticism.[28]

Richelle displays a large amount of envy when she has a crush on Noah, as she continuously gets jealous when she sees him interact with Abi. Although Richelle is quite friendly, she views her crush on Noah as a hindrance rather than a normal emotion, even deeming infatuation as the reason A-Troupe loses dancers.[15] She genuinely cares about Noah nonetheless, although selfishly; she has stated that she wants Noah to be happy, but not with Abi.[14] Richelle can be prissy, dramatic and judgmental, exemplified with how disgusted she is at Noah's habits.[3]

Richelle's determination and conceit reach all-time highs in preparation for her A-Troupe audition. She goes out of her way to display her expertise and revels in the intimidation of her peers that results from her dancing. But, since Richelle is obsessed with perfection, she is able to commend others on their successful dancing. In fact, Richelle can be quite empathetic and rarely harbours genuine ill-content; her greatest flaw, perhaps, is her inability to make her words reflect her mind-set.
