From a first look, Ronovi has a tall and looming frame. As is typical of an Epicanthix, she stands over an impressive two meters in height, with a long torso and strongly built legs so that she towers over allies and opponents. Her weight gives her a more slender look, but in truth she is built very much like a brick, being tough, sturdy, and battered. She is very well-toned, with broad shoulders and a chest that seems to belong more to a man than to a woman. Her right ear is slightly mangled, the lobe having been removed by a blaster bolt.
With her build being very appropriate to that of a soldier, Ronovi's other physical traits also complement her sharper and darker appearance. Her rounder jaw and more subdued cheekbones contrast well with her broader nose and thicker eyebrows. Her face holds a refined, almost noble aura about it despite a pronounced scar on the right side of her jaw and some small, white marks that line her chin, lips, and forehead. She keeps her naturally black hair long, usually tied back with a few strands falling across the nape of her neck and her collarbone. Overall, she has strong masculine features and has even been mistaken for a man from a distance.
Ronovi's cybernetic left arm is intentionally exposed for others to see, while her left eye is a cybernetic implant, an electric patch that works as a vision replacement. Her organic eye, once a deep brown, has become amber due to the dark side's physiological effects on her body.
Some people say that actions speak louder than words. For Ronovi Tavisaen, there is nothing wrong with using both. Whether or not on the battlefield, Ronovi uses a broad vocabulary, clever sarcasm, and sardonic wit to put down opponents and allies alike in arguments and banter. Although having such a snappy tongue winds up alienating allies and ending diplomatic meetings on a sour note, Ronovi cannot resist getting into a battle of wits and verbosity to either prove a point or simply have fun verbally eviscerating others or lobbing a comeback or comment in someone else's direction.
Ronovi is not a follower of any specific Force doctrines or teachings, despite the fact that she has grown familiar with several Force philosophies. This is because she simply thinks of the Force as a tool rather than a mystical entity. She maintains a down-to-earth, no-nonsense perspective of the dark side, practicing its arts with the idea that it assists her toward a greater end goal. To her, the Force is a manual, not a spiritual guide or almighty deity; what is most crucial is the individual power garnered from the Force and the end result of its teachings and its history. While many compare such a mindset to Obelisk ideologies, Ronovi claims that it is merely common sense.
Ronovi Tavisaen has been an alcoholic since she was very young, imbibing the strongest of brews and beverages in order to keep her violent tendencies muted and her occasionally erratic behavior more subdued. In fact, those who interact with Ronovi often wonder if she is ever sober, as she holds her liquor quite well. However, what she does not like to admit is that she uses alcohol as a coping mechanism, in order to keep her mind off of various anxieties and regrets that she has accumulated throughout the years. She is certainly an addict, though it is a wonder that such an addiction does not get in the way of her ability to function on a basic level.
Time and time again, Ronovi Tavisaen has taken on various roles, challenges, and tasks...and often, she has failed. While she has not always handled these setbacks well, she has ultimately come to terms with various parts of herself that have consistently led to those failures, some of which she cannot or will not change. As someone taught to always strive toward perfection, she sees stumbles as standard procedure in her constant quest for strength and power. Still, this does not mean she continues to forge the same path she started on, and she avoids official positions of power as a result. After all, once you've hibernated in a stasis chamber for four years, you've learned a few lessons.
Ronovi Tavisaen is an adrenaline junkie, and she gets her high from engaging in combat. As a result, she greatly enjoys inflicting pain. While the agony she subjects her enemies to doesn't always result in death, she has come up with multiple clever ways - whether using the Force or her raw strength - to torture, injure, maim, and kill her victims. She especially feels ecstasy when she harms people whom she firmly believes deserve to be harmed, feeding into her skewed perspective of personal vengeance and justice. However, Ronovi occasionally questions her urge to be violent in order to feel more powerful - and like any other addiction, she wonders if there's a way to break it. Those doubts occasionally result in her losing focus in the middle of a confrontation, or becoming sloppy in her execution of ruthless butchery.
Where most err on the side of caution in a confrontation, Ronovi Tavisaen prefers to charge in head-first. While others may skirt a battlefield or keep their careful distance, Ronovi Tavisaen rushes in with devastating attacks with seemingly no regard for safety, relying upon instinct and possibly armor to protect her from dismemberment and death during her all-out attacks. Ronovi Tavisaen is a force to be feared on the battlefield, leaving a trail of death and destruction. However, Ronovi Tavisaen's blood-hungry ways put her in far more danger than the normal combatant, often resulting in needless injury and suffering, trading safety for pure offensive ability.
