so the headcannon is that the condense is actually a sweet troll, but being the empress of such a bloodthirsty planet may have corrupted her, or at least driven her to be extremely tough and thus it became her lifestyle and character.
but in some cases, when the current is tiding in the right direction, she can be very motherly and tolerant.
so in a nutshell shes like an abused mother husky
i also have another two short headcannons about eridan.
HC1 - eridan is hydrophobic
HC2 - eridan pronounces 'r' as 'w' (ex. "wwhats up lowwbloods, im ewidan ampowa")
