Personality:In her first incarnation as the 'little girl', Melody was shy,innocent and terrified of the "monsters" who had trapped her in the spacesuit. Her second incarnation,'Mels',was saucy, often in trouble and chased by police just before her regeneration. She resented the Doctor and blamed him for historical disasters, but wanted to marry him. Mels also liked to use the phrase "penny in the air...and the penny drops", when people around her realised something. In her last incarnation, River was very strong-willed; though brainwashed and raised to kill him, she decided the Doctor was "worth it" and saved his life, giving up all her regenerations to do so.
She resisted the upgraded astronaut suit and refused to kill him, heedless of the consequences. River was frisky and cheeky like her mother, Amy. Like her father, Rory, she was stubborn, responsible and fiercely compassionate. She enjoyed showing off for the Doctor. She teased him and liked using the word "spoilers" whenever the subject turned to the Doctor's future. She kept her diary from him and hid that his death at Lake Silencio was a hoax from everyone except her parents. River occasionally visited Amy and Rory after they found out that she was their daughter. River seemed at ease with being kept in prison much of her life for a crime she didn't commit and often flirted with the guards or made jokes about the facility, even once stating that she was "breaking in not out" which seemed to be a subtle taunt to the security of what was supposed to be an extremely secure prison. She was able to escape from prison as though the walls aren't there according to the Doctor. Nevertheless she did work towards earning a pardon,eventually succeeding when the Doctor deleted records of himself from the Universe. River loved flirting with people and was constantly hitting on the Doctor, although she also had a tendency to flirt with other people such as prison guards and Hitler's soldiers. She often greeted the Doctor with the words "Hello Sweetie".
River was very confident in her abilities and she was very hard to intimidate, showing no fear when faced with the Weeping Angels, the Silence or the Vashta Nerada. She was also very good at hiding her emotions, and didn't like to show weakness. She showed a suprising lack of emotion after her parents were taken away for ever by a Weeping Angel since she didn't want to make the Doctor feel even worse about losing them. River was deeply in love with the Doctor,even though she had been raised to kill him. She teased Madame Kovarian about the mistake she made by kidnapping her since Kovarian was partially responsible for her falling in love with the Doctor in the first place. In her younger years, River showed some degree of selfishness since she was willing to sacrifice the entire Universe in order to protect the Doctor. However later in her life, she became more selfless and showed a willingness to sacrifice herself, giving up all her remaining regenerations to save the Eleventh Doctor's life and sacrificing her own life in order to save the Tenth Doctor. River had varying opinions of the Doctor's earlier selves. She didn't like the First, Second, Sixth, and Ninth Doctors; she got along with the Third, Eighth, and Tenth Doctors; and she remained somewhat neutral about the Fourth, Fifth, and Seventh Doctors, just voicing her shock at some of the traits they had.
