Beryl is like the Most Beautiful Girl in school; things have always come easily to her because of the elegance of her code. She got used to the status that provided her, but now finds herself isolated by Argon and his controlling ways. She realizes now that it was a mistake to become involved with him, and wants to be free of his control, but she is afraid to challenge him openly. Although she is somewhat under Argon's thumb, she still manages to run her own affairs, usually to Argon's detriment.
For a short time she has been carrying on a secret relationship with Anti-M, who almost has Beryl convinced to act against Argon.
