Functional Order: Se-Fi-Te-Ni

Emma is opportunistic and good at improvising in the heat of the moment. When unable to speak about her torment in the faerie realm, she tears up all her fine dresses and starts doing a sewn tapestry depicting the events and their forthcoming doom. As she becomes more unstable, the world increasingly presses in on her, to the point where it becomes all but unbearable. She reacts quickly in the moment, both in her response to others and in impulsive decisions (her attack upon Mr. Norrell, in public, on a crowded street). How much of what she knows comes from hearing about it at Lost-Hope and how much comes from her own intuition is unclear, but Emma has a good grasp of the character of other people. She senses that she can trust Arabella and tries to confide in her. She feels strongly that certain events will take place, and sews them as visual montage into her tapestry. She is compassionate, with a strong sense of self; she does not like others interfering in her life, or “bartering away half of it!” She has strong convictions and feelings that stem from her own perception of other people, and her moral judgments of their behavior (Mr Norrell is evil, because he took something away from her that she cannot get back). Confronted with a massive problem – her enslavement to the Faerie King – Emma cannot see any other way around it except desperate measures: to take her own life, to shoot the person responsible, and to fight against incarceration for insanity. She frequently acts on her feelings and can be blunt in her assessment of Mr Norrell.

Enneagram: 8w7 sp/so

Emma is very direct before her death, and just as direct thereafter – she becomes increasingly angry and frustrated at her inability to tell anyone about the Faerie king forcing her to dance all night, every night. Refusing to submit to him, she keeps a cool head around him, but also tries to find creative ways around his magic. She does not hesitate to tell people off, accusing her husband of trying to silence her, Mr. Norrell of using her amiss, and she even calls the Gentleman “a bore” to his face. She is suspicious of others and their motives, and generally distrustful of magicians. Her 7 wing brings in further defensiveness, and a desperate need to free herself from this hellish imprisonment (she found it fun at first).
