Bellatrix is not a woman to be crossed. Most people know to stay away from her and her temper. She has a nasty reputation at school for hexing people who get on her bad side, give her a funny look, or when she's having a bad day- just because she feels like it. She never learned to control her temper and will fly off the handle at anyone, including the sisters she loves more than anything. Her lack of patience and her quick temper have landed many a student in the hospital wing. She doesn't give a second thought about it, and seeing someone else in pain doesn't bother her. Someone else might consider this heartless, or that she is without a moral compass, but Bellatrix merely sees it as life. Those who are weaker are always under the heel of those who are stronger. If you can be strong, you avoid it. She is strong. It's not her fault if the rest of the world is weak.
Bella is well known for her determined nature. Ever since she was little, once she sets her mind at something, she will stop at nothing to get it. She will manipulate, hurt, lie, beg, borrow and steal to get what she wants. Well, maybe not beg. She's far too proud for that, and has much better ways to get what she wants. This determinedness of hers borders on a point of recklessness. As stated, she will stop at nothing to get what she wants, even if it will eventually lead to her undoing.

Bellatrix cannot be described as a nice person. Most people would go straight to the word bitch when it comes to describing her. She knows and has taken to owning the word, proclaiming herself the Queen Bitch of Slytherin. They call her that name because she is a powerful woman, because she doesn't back down, because she tells the truth as she sees it. Or at least that is how she views it, which is really the only important thing to her. She was raised with a strict sense of hierarchy about the world. At the bottom of the pecking order there are the muggles, and barely above them are mudbloods. Then halfbloods, followed by pureblood blood traitors, followed by pureblood society. Society has it's own rules and class standing, but in the end, she is still at the top, because she is a Black. She is always viewing the world through this caste system.
The first thing anyone will tell you if you ask them about Bellatrix Black is that she is not someone to cross. There has hardly been a Slytherin more worthy of the house than Slytherin and the Dark Lord himself. To outsiders, and even those closer to her, Bellatrix is cruel, having no qualms about hurting people to get what she wants. And even simply for the sake of hurting people. You see, she's a bit sadistic, enjoying tormenting others just to watch them squirm. Even as a small child she would take great delight in setting the House Elves up with impossible tasks, or simply hurting them to see how much she could get away with. She'd give them orders that they had no choice but to disobey, and giggle as they proceeded to hurt themselves as punishment. It was fun for her, and gave her a feeling of power that she has since grown almost addicted to. If you're lucky enough to catch her in one of these moments of weakness, however, watch out.
Something that has been important to her since she was a child was power. You are respected if you are powerful, you are feared. People pay attention to you, they listen, they revere. This is something she directly learned from her father. She craves power because it means you are the best. she knows some pretty painful hexes and will not hesitate to use them on you. She used this power to gain respect, and abuses it to get what she wants.
