She wears a red tie and her torso is barely covered, as she leaves her cropped red jacket with pink outlines open. She has red and white striped stockings under her red thigh-high boots. Her frilly red skirt is short on the front and long at the back. She also carries around a large flag with the Revolutionary Army's symbol on it.
|— Betty's beliefs in fighting for one's freedom|
Betty treats the people she helps very rudely, insulting them and only referring to them with degrading terms. Despite this attitude, her intention is still to recruit them into the Revolutionary Army by encouraging them to make their own choices. She believes that committing heroic actions is a decision one makes for themselves. When the people of Lulusia Kingdom took up arms and fought, she broke her normal attitude briefly to commend them on their actions. Despite her rude and disrespectful attitude, she does share with her fellow executives the same feelings of mercy and a desire to help those who are in trouble. Also, she does show respect and appreciation to those who stand to fight their own enemies and troubles, as she warmly smiled and proudly praised the people of Lulusia Kingdom for standing up and fighting the Peachbeard Pirates.
Abilities and Powers
As a Revolutionary Army executive, Betty is in a powerful position within the organization. As commander of the East Army, she has control over all the soldiers in it.

- Further information: Kobu Kobu no Mi
Betty ate the Kobu Kobu no Mi, a Paramecia-type Devil Fruit that allows her to encourage and rally people into fighting, increasing their resolve and physical strength in the process. She activates her power by speaking encouraging words to her targets.
Her power is effective enough that she was able to turn the scared helpless citizens of the Lulusia Kingdom into a fighting force strong enough to successfully beat back the Peachbeard Pirates with only sticks.
Betty and her fellow executives Morley, Lindbergh, and Karasu went to the Lulusia Kingdom to save the citizens from the pillaging Peachbeard Pirates. Betty went to the citizens, giving them the choice to fight. The citizens that decided to fight had their latent powers awakened by Betty's Devil Fruit, and Betty told Lindbergh and Karasu to back up the citizens as they charged into battle. After the pirates were defeated, the executives left them for the citizens to turn in for the captain's bounty, and Betty gave the citizens the revolutionaries' contact information, encouraging them to rise up with the army. The executives then headed for Momoiro Island to meet with the rest of the army and prepare for their declaration of war on the World Nobles.
After the meeting at Momoiro Island, Betty had a conversation with Koala, commenting on the latter's desire to fight the World Government for the sake of the fish-men race.
