Emma Frost has always been a woman of questionable ethical standard. Having rejected the inheritance of her family's wealth in favour of making her own way in the world, she advanced through the ranks of both business and mutant kind through diamond-edged ruthlessness. Her relationship with the X-Men has, over the years, been rocky, but they generally share a common goal - the preservation of mutant kind. Despite her outwardly cold and selfish nature, Emma Frost cares deeply for those to whom she is close. It's just nearly impossible to tell whether she considers you close, or simply a tool.
