R is headstrong, stubborn, and she has a quick temper. L is proud, and quick to defend himself if he feels he is being attacked. Both of them are easily wounded, though they both try hard to hide it. Over the years they have parted innumerable times, sometimes because of her willfulness, sometimes because of his hubris. In the end, they always realize how much they love each other, how much they need each other, and all the cruel words they've said to each other and heartless things they've done to each other melt away in the heat of their passionate reunion.
