Professionall, precise, perfectionist. These are a few words that best describe Ardette Bombaerts. You could easily add "polite," if you don't give her a reason to dislike you, and "honest," if by some unfortunate circumstance you do. She is a no-nonsense woman with a very low tolerance for bullshit and very high standards. Her bad side is easier to avoid than most people think; just do your job, stay out of her way, and she'll take no issue with you.
Overall, she is resourceful, efficient, intelligent, and focused, always putting her work first and foremost. She thrives on calm and order, is a neat freak, and obessively picks up slack. Ardette lives and works strictly according to her ideals of professionalism, and does her best to keep her emotions in check. Most find her cold and unyeilding, and she probably takes herself too seriously, but she'll be the last to dispute the She's-A-Robot theory, so there's a dry sense of humor in there, somewhere.
Ardette is fiercely independent and very stubborn. She rarely ever asks for help or accepts it if it's offered. Since she came to RED, Ardette has had a revolving door of Spy partners who all ultimately retired, ended up being completely incompetent, went AWOL, or got themselves killed. This has done nothing but reinforce Ardette's long-standing doctrine of relying on nobody but herself to get a job done, and in general, she prefers working alone anyways. This results in working long hours, probably not sleeping or eating as much as she ought to, and a nearly obsessive need-to-know of every legal, logistical, or administrative event happening on base. If there's paperwork - whether it be intel, recruit files, embarassingly personal orders from Mann Co. - it's probably gone through her hands.
All in all, Ardette Bombaerts is a hard nut to crack. But once you have her respect, you'll definitely know it. Once you have her friendship, you have an invaluable ally. And if you're a RED, by god, she doesn't have to like you, but she has your back on the field.
