"Eros will have naked bodies;
Friendship naked personalities. "

Above before friendship thye can barely talk. Below when the magic of friendship unfolds

So you happen to know this character this charcter maybe he/she acts stoic,Agressive, happy and positive, shy, cold} etc .

That is until they eran their friendship and their trust. Turns out that ther behavior was simply a facade and thanks to The Power of Friendship they feel comfortable being their true selves with their loved ones.

For instance aLibby that is initially believed to be a Jerk is revealed to be Jerk with a Heart of Gold that only acted meand and snobbish inorder to be accepted.

To qualify, the difference needs to be either particularly dramatic and/or commented on in story and relevant to the plot or characterization.
