Occasionally, she has shown confusion and anxiety over the way her miracles were being used under the instructions of Goblin Slayer, who make full use of it effectiveness in brutal tactics. This only gets worse when she returns to the temple and receives more miracles, making her wonder why the merciful Earth Mother would grant her these protective miracles if they were being used in such a contradiction manner.
