Starting Trait: Mainly quite rude and mainly a shin kicker as well Evidence: "Quickly sank down to protect her sore shin in the shag carpeting. She had pulled Turtle's braid in the lobby yesterday" (Raskin 10) Explanation: Here, Flora Baumbauch is about to rise up with the pin but her shin acts up and she comes back down to protect it. She had gotten that bruise when turtle rudely kicked her after she pulled on turtle's braid. Her reaction to how her shin acts up shows exactly how rude and hard had turtle kicks people.

A bit less rude Evidence: "Turtle sighed 'It means 500 shares of SEA was traded at 8.50$ a share'" (Raskin 80) Explanation: Here, we can see how turtle has become smarter based on her knowledge about stock market terms.
