Held up two convenience stores as a teenager, and was sent away to a Catholic boarding school in Tennessee. Walky claims he has barely spoken to her in five years.years.
** Also expanded on, she got into fights in school when a bully attacked and badly injured Marcie, getting away with it because the faculty refused to believe Sal's word... so she attacked him in the playground.



* SirSwearsALot: What with her temper, and her general disregard for social norms, Sal does swear often. Especially when she's really annoyed (like, say, when getting ''too'' into Mario Kart...)



* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: A non-verbal version, but it's all over her face when Jacob explains how much he dislikes being viewed only as eye-candy.



* FanserviceUpgrade: She briefly undoes her top and does her hair up when Robin stops by, much to Joe and Walky's distress. Robin does (eventually) admit she thinks it makes her "super-cute".

* DeathGlare: Shoots Sal one after she starts a fight with Amazi-Girl at Robin's rally.



* UndyingLoyality: To Sal. Despite fighting with her on occasion, she moved all the way to campus and into a cramped apartment just to support Sal, knowing her friend would be lonely that far away and need someone to lean on.

* UnwantedAssistance: She decides to try and help Leslie. Unfortunately, her actions leave a lot to be desired, since Robin takes her usual thoughtless approach to all of it.

* AdaptationalVillany: His Walkyverse counterpart was a giant asshole, but otherwise harmless. This Ros sis an insane Zealot who [[spoiler: Brings a rifle to a college campus with the intention of murdering Dina, then latter Joyce and Becky if Becky didn't come with him, kidnaps his own daughter, and drove his own wife to suicide. ]]

* SuddenlySexuality: Ethan decides he's gay on his prom night after considering himself straight all his prior life. Can be considered a KickTheDog moment for Amber, who was deeply in love with him at the time and was just moments away from making love with him for the first time as their prom grand finale.

Added DiffLines:

* ZeroPercentApprovalRating: Pretty much nobody on her floor actually likes Ruth as their R.A. (though Rachel states they'd still ''much'' rather deal with her than Mary).


Added DiffLines:

* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: Ruth is not one of nature's cheerful people, even without the baggage she has. So when Billie finds her being nice, and saying it's ''good to see her'', she's alarmed.
-->'''Billie:''' Oh my god. They drugged the shit out of you, didn't they.
-->'''Ruth:''' Uh, yeah. ''Duh''. You were there yesterday when they started handing me pills yesterday.

* CrazyPrepared: As Amazi-Girl, she carries multiple tools and weapons on her costume at all times, including grappling hook and rope, tire-piercing spike balls... and even Amazi-Girl-themed condoms.



* RageBreakingPoint: [[spoiler:After being unable to help your only friend, your father only further twists the knife by telling you how useless and cowardly you are (despite the fact that the robber was armed with a ''freakin''' knife). This is the point where poor, broken Amber completely ''snaps''.]]

**[[spoiler:Almost suffers another one after Danny kisses her in public. As it was widely known that he was dating Amazi-girl and not the "civilian" Amber, they previously agreed that he only treats her as a friend to protect her hero secret identity. This angers her so much that she swears at him, almost calls him some very nasty things and claims that while she needs him, she needs Amazi-Girl much more, ending their relationship on the spot.

* SecretKeeper: Ethan is the only member of the cast who knows that Jocelyne is a trans woman. He is also one of just four people knowing Amber is the true identity of Amazi-Girl (other three being Dorothy, Danny and Dina).

Can be considered a KickTheDog moment for Amber, who was deeply in love with him at the time and was just moments away from making love with him for the first time as their prom grand finale.

to:

* SoBeautifulItsACurse: Male example.



* ArmoredClosetGay: Yeah, she's sitting on Leslie's sofa, and yeah, they're watching ''Steve Universe'', and yeah, they're holding hands. Robin still swears she's not into Leslie (and that they're ''barely'' holding hands).

* EvilerThanThou: Everyone's aware that Ruth is a terrible Resident Assistant, but after finding out what Mary did to her, they unanimously agree that Mary is far worse.
-->'''Mary:''' ''[After Billie punches her and everyone does nothing but glare at Mary in pure contempt.]'' Why are you siding with ''her'' against ''me''? It was Ruth who was a terrible R.A.!
-->'''Rachel:''' Yeah, she was. But we can multitask.



** After Ruth is hospitalised by the psychological damage Mary caused, Billie gives Mary a taste- no ''mouthful'' of her own medicine by telling everyone in the dorm how Mary blackmailed her and Ruth, so they know to go to the Resident Manager with that information should Mary try to mess with them too. Now she can't even report Billie for punching her without getting exposed as a blackmailer.



* ObviouslyEvil: No one who spends much time with Mary doubts that she's a horrible person.

* ADateWithRosiePalms: On hearing the rumours about Leslie and Robin, she declares that among the things she needs is "time in the bathroom", with illustrations.



* MrFanservice: [[http://www.dumbingofage.com/2013/comic/book-3/02-guess-whos-coming-to-galassos/temptation/ Introduced]] working out while shirtless (which kicked off the "Sexiest Man" poll). This, uh, makes things difficult for Ethan.

Ethan. And for Jacob, too, as it turns out. He finds people only being interested in him for sex dehumanizing.



* FirstNameBasis: One of the first things she tells her class is to call her Leslie; the PunnyName would probably stand out a lot more in [=DoA=].

** She tends to refer to Robin as "Congresswoman Desanto". The ends on finding Robin asleep in her bed.




to:

* {{UST}}: With Robin. It kicks into overdrive when they start spending time together in Leslie's (very) cramped kitchen. While Leslie is partially undressed and still wearing her hair done up to catch Robin's attention.

* {{Hypocrite}}: Tells Jacob that she cut Sarah out of her life for her own well-being, the exact same reason Sarah called Dana's dad.




to:

* SelfServingMemory: Conveniently leaves out her continued harassment of Sarah when telling Jacob about Sarah punching her, along with Sarah's apology the very next day.
